That has been mentioned at the time of Edward's wedding, but not since.

And suppose Phillip outlives the Queen? Then it will be up to Charles, and he may very well chose to give the title to Harry instead.

It was stated when Edward married, that Charles had agreed with his mother. Do you really think Charles will over look the direct wishes of both his parents, to name his son Duke of Edinburgh if Philip outlives his wife? There is no shortage of Dukedomes, it would be pretty crass of him to name Harry Duke of Edinburgh, not to mention the public out cry. The public is more than aware Elizabeth stated Edward would have the title. Charles already has enough bad PR from the people in the UK without adding that. Harry will be Duke of something, but not Edinburgh.

And why has it not been mentioned since? Well because talking of Prince Philip like he is dead is a tad bit morbid don't you think. It has been made known, the queen's wishes and intentions, that's enough.

The likely hood is Philip will die first. He is five years the queen's senior. Their birthdays are both June, he will be 90, she will be 85. Her mother was 102 when she died. Prince Philip has suffered a serious heart problem since 1992.

Sorry I have steered this thread off course...but really our speculations are just a game because we never know what direction Mary and Frederik will go in, with either names or godparents...I am sure not maybe people were expecting John or Henri (the French version) to be included in Christian's name or even that they would use a name like Isabella...and as for godparents, well how many more friends can come out the woodwork now and step up as godparents?

But on the question of godparents, when a person is made a godparent does that make their spouse a godparent by default? I am thinking of Prince Daniel (Victoria is already) Princess Marie (Joachim is already) or Caroline Heering (Peter is already)...And another question, you can be approached/invited to be a godparent but you still have the right of refusal, don't you? If you think you aren't up to the responsibility, etc...

My hopes are that the Doky's, the Reedtz-Thott's get a look in this time...Maybe the Varnoe's because I am actually sceptical about the role of a godparent, I don't think it has much to do with religious instruction, more a strategic move, future insurance for their child, return for favours...(like ski holidays in Switzerland )

No, I don't think a spouse becomes a godparent by default and Prince Daniel is a possiblity. Though I don't know how long he's known Frederik and Mary.

Geez, I'm almost afraid to post again, after the recent attack, but dare I suggest NO British royals and perhaps Prince Daniel and Miss Petty as godparents this time..

IMO long enough to become a godparent! Royal godparenting is also about inclusion and appreciation!

Love these suggestions, it was about time Amber Petty was fully recognised as the deserving friend that she it.

I think that we can rule these out for these reasons:
Bendt and Pernille Wedell-Wedellsborg / Christian and Mette Ahlefeldt-Laurvig: They seem to have more contact with Prince Joachim and Princess Marie

Thomas Blachmann: IMO - I love him, but I think he´s to controvesial...

Hm, why is Thomas Blachmann controversial? Because he is a judge on X Factor?

I really don't think Amber Petty will be a godparent as everyone is saying...I could be wrong and just jinxing myself...But I think there is a difference between the role of a family friend (Amber) and a godparent...And maybe the role of godparent is too constrained and Amber will provide and play another role that is free of religious boundaries and rules...A godparent has to play a part in the religious education and spiritual life of their godchild, that is the broad definition...And I don't think that sits well with Amber herself...while it would be a nice gesture on Mary's part, it wouldn't make much sense...I don't know, maybe I am confused about the whole godparent thing?

I guess the parents' choice of godparents would be based on what kind of support they want the godparent to provide.
