Well, both public service channels, DR1 and TV2, will show live from the christening. I'm not sure about live feeds inetrantionally, but the entire coverage usually ends up on the Net shortly after.

Yes. Denmark is +1 GMT, so 5pm there would be 4pm in the UK.

The guestlist, the information about the floral decorations, information about the music and the names of the godparents will be released around 16 o'clock. The information about the christening robe will be released at the same time as Prince Joachim and Princess Marie arrive. (around 17 o'clock) After the speeches in the church, they will be released. The name will be released, as accustomed, when it's pronounced. Official pictures of the family will be released on Monday 21 May.

I'm hoping that either Joachim and Marie will arrive with either all four children together, or on their own with the Princess and that the three boys travel with their grandparents. I don't want to see Nikolai and Felix arriving with the Queen and then Joachim and Marie with their two children together. Makes them seem too separate.

Hope we'll be able to follow the christening live on the internet like I did for Henrik's christening in 2009!

I fear it is more likely that video clips will be put out with a few minuttes delay, with a complete full length clip posted some hours later.

The problem is that since I am here in DK, I can't see whether the are live feeds viewable outside DK.

I suggest you keep a close eye on TV2 and DR1. Both channels will start to air live from 13.30 or so, so there should be plenty of time for our resident experts to find the best link, before the guests starts to arrive at 16.00.

The weather is fine today. Sunny, fairly warm with no rain in sight.

The local newspaper Jydske Vestkysten is of course covering the christening intensively.

Here is an overview of all the articles (online) that are currently available: jv.dk - Aktuelle nyheder fra Syddanmark

With a gallery submitted by the readers: jv.dk - Aktuelle nyheder fra Syddanmark - Nyheder - Tønder - Prinsessedåb: Send os dine billeder fra festen
As you can tell the preparations are in full swing and it's pure village idyl.

ADDED: A mood report from BT: http://www.bt.dk/royale/dagen-foer-b...-der-nu-er-nok
Here about a couple who own a cafe in the village. They are pretty delighted so far! The journalists are good costumers.
It's their first royal christening in Møgeltønder and their main worry is that they will run out of meatballs (frikadeller).
But they do know Joachim and our Marie from the daily life in the village. Pia Berg-Matzen tells: "We are used to seeing Marie driving by and wave to us. Recently she, Prince Joachim and little Prince Henrik came by for coffee and layered cake. Henrik really liked that, he munched away of the layered cake".
Unsurprisingly it means a lot to the locals that M&J are present in the village.
She adds firmly: "Here in Møgeltønder they are after all private and they are treated as such by us".

I'm hoping to see some royals here like maybe Prince Pavlos and Princess Marie Chantal, maybe that crazy but beautiful Princess Camilla de Bourbon. I wonder if Princess Victoria will be here since her christening is in 2 days....anyway I'm excited.

Then you have a live feed on your hands.

Both TV2 and DR1 are right showing a portrait of our Marie. That portrait is expected to end around 13.15 or so.

Jydske Vestkyten informs us that Alain Cavallier and Marie's brothers have been seen in Møgeltønder village.
M&J had a trial run earlier today as you can tell from some of the pictures.

For those among you who watch a DRF christening for the first time:
The baptismal font has been broght from Rosenborg Castle, where it is stored along with the crown jewels.
The font is made of silver and gold and it's from 1670.
Most DRF children since then have been baptized at this font.
The font is very fragile indeed and there is always last minute repairs.

It seems that it's possible to follow at least DR1 live from abroad, I can see it live in Sweden now. There is a program about princess Marie showing just now.
