The christening will take place at 5:30 PM (in the afternoon), or 17:30 hours as is noted in some European and South American countries as well as the armed forces.

I always had troubles with AM/PM system as well; when you get used to 24 hour system, it's slightly difficult to 'switch' to another one.

Now we've established that the correct hour is 5.30 pm, I was wondering whether anyone could tell me how to watch the christening life: are there any online links non-Danish residents can use?

AM and PM are from Latin: ante meridiem means before midday, and post meridiem means after midday.
I doubt whether many English speakers would be able to tell you what the two terms mean :-)
So don't worry...

Can we please move on from AM/PM now that we have established that the christening is at 5:30PM and the meaning of AM/PM. Any future posts not on topic for this thread (Possible names for the newborn) will be deleted by a moderator.

Doesn't Joachim translate into Jacques in French, or am I mistaken?

Perhaps there could be Jacques, Alain or Henri, or any combination thereof in the baby's final name.

Something Henrik Alain something.

The middle two names have a nice ring to them, sound right together.

One more suggestion:

Andr Alain Holger Joachim

I think they might not choose 'Henri' or 'Frederik' as those
are included in names of Princes Nikolai and Felix.

Alain is more than likely going to be in the baby's name, as a middle name is my guess. Don't know about Henrik/Henri, as it is already in Felix's middle names.

There is, IMO, a very high chance that either Frederik or Christian will be in the name, due to the naming of Danish Kings alternating Frederik/Christian.

I think that this little boy is too far down the line of succession to have either Frederick or Christian included in his names, even though they are beautiful.

Henrik Alain gives a tip of the hat to his French grandfathers' common ancestry.

I read today that Benjamin could be a strong contender for a first name, with Joachim as his final name. So, Benjamin Henrik Alain Joachim. Not sure if that is too awkward a combination, it doesn't seem to flow. We'll know soon.

It is a nice name but I didn't think it would be in contention as it is also her brother's name but then maybe she is naming the baby after him or he will be a godparent.

Her brothers are Benjamin, Gregory, Charles and Edouard.

Is it a rule that all boys in line to the throne must have a Christian or a Frederik in their names?

Thankfully we will all know soon.

Now knowing the names of Marie's brothers, I also don't think Benjamin would be a good choice, giving too much prominence to a non-royal, and a brother instead of a grandfather or father.

I think it's safe to say that Henri or Henrik and Alain are mose likely going to be included.

So then, Henri(k) Alain Joachim something.

I'm tied between two possibilities:
1.) Henri Alain Joachim or
2.) Francois (a nod to the nation of France) Henri Alain

somehow, someway ... Marie will work in her shared French heritage w/Prince Henrik
