Queen Fabiola for Godmother perhaps?
And Grandduke Henri for Godfather?

Crown Prins Willem Alexander would be a great Godparent too I think, but he isn't Catholick.

I think they would choose one sibling of HRH Prince Philippe (perhaps HIRH Princess Maria Laura would also be a possibility) or the sibling-in-law of PP and one cousin of the d'Udekem d'Acoz family.

I also was hoping for Princess Maria-Laura for godmother as Prince Amadeo is godfather to Elizabeth. Perhaps Crown Princes Mary or Frederick or one of the Luxembourg cousins like Felix for godfather

I was thinking they would stick with family members. Maybe Prince Laurent and one of the princesses sisters (or are they both godmothers already, in which case, perhaps Princess Maria-Laura

When Elisabeth was born, Philippe and Mathilde said they had chosen Amedeo and Hélène, because they wanted yong godparents. That instead of chosing their parents, like it is most common.
With Gabriel they did the same thing, but with Emmanuel they've also chosen Maria Christina Rossi di Montelera and she's already 42 and married to someone 47.

I found a little genealogy, so you can see how Maria Christina is related to prince Philippe.

Paola's mother:
1.1.Luisa Gazelli (1896-1989), m.1919 Don Fulco, Prince Ruffo di Calabria (1884-1946)
Paola's sister:
1.1.1.Donna Maria-Cristina Ruffo di Calabria (1920-2003), m.1940 Casimiro San Martino d'Agliè, Marchese di Fontanetto con San Germano (1903-1988)
1.1.1.1.Emanuela San Martino d'Agliè, m.1962 Ernesto [dei conti] Rossi di Montelera (*1938)
1.1.1.1.1.Lidia Rossi di Montelera (*1963), m.1990 Count Alexander of Trauttmansdorff-Weinsberg (*1964)
1.1.1.1.1.1.Countess Luisa of Trauttmansdorff-Weinsberg (*1991)
1.1.1.1.1.2.Countess Maria Amelie of Trauttmansdorff-Weinsberg (*1993)
1.1.1.1.1.3.Countess Elisabeth of Trauttmansdorff-Weinsberg (*1995)
1.1.1.1.1.4.Count Vincenz of Trauttmansdorff-Weinsberg (*1998)
1.1.1.1.1.5.Countess Teresa of Trauttmansdorff-Weinsberg (*1999)
1.1.1.1.2.Maria Cristina Rossi di Montelera (*1965), m.1994 Baron Hans-Ulrich von Freyberg-Eisenberg-Allmendingen (*1960)

(Descendants of Count Felice Rignon)

So we can't really know... who would think of an grandniece...

I wouldn't vote for a royal, Philippe and Mathilde like to choose close familiy. The take it very serious. They don't chose someone for the pretty title they have or glamour.

I wouldn't vote for a royal, Philippe and Mathilde like to choose close familiy. The take it very serious. They don't chose someone for the pretty title they have or glamour.
in the other christenings they tended to choose close friends and also some royals:

elisabeth's godparents: amedeo of belgium and helene d'udekem d'acoz (cousin and aunt)
gabriel's godparents: his uncle charles d'udekem d'acoz and baroness christina freyberg
emmanuel's godparents: elisabeth d'udekem d'acoz and guillaume of luxembourg

since they are catholic, they only choose two godparents. they seem to be likely to choose catholic godparents, though, therefore maxima seems quite a good option since she remained in the catholic church even though she married a protestant.

It wouldn't be a surprise at all if Frederik or Mary was named a godparent. It will be very interesting to see who they choose.

Mathilde was a godparent to a Dutch princess and a Danish princess. But they are protestant. They chose more than one godmother.

In roman-catholicism you only chose one. So I don't think we have to look in other royal houses. It's more common to chose direct family. Friends you can lose, family is forever...

After thinking about it again and seeing who the godparents of the other 3 children are, I think it will be Prince Laurent and Princess Astrid.
All of Princess Mathilde's siblings are godparent's already (to Elisabeth, Gabriel and Emmanuel) and I just realized Prince Phillippe's siblings aren't at all.
I think it should/will be Prince Laurent and Princess Astrid.

If they choose a non-family member, I think it will be Maxima as well.
