I definitely think either Maxima or WA will be chosen. I dont think they'll choose Laurentien or constantijn as L is godmother Leah Isadora and I get the impression royal families like to "diversify" godparents.

btw, I will be personally offended if Maxima isnt asked to be godmother to Leonor of Spain. it seems so appropriate. Maxima's catholic, she can get to know her godchild by speaking to her in spanish and besides she's fabulous. It's a perfect fit.

maxima is catholic and she can speak with spanish! since she met letizia at CP Fred and Mary Donaldson's pre-wedding and wedding day they later both become friends you would believe me! but we have wait and see if Letizia would chose her or not

Hahaha! Me too! But I think we'll be surely offended there, because I have a strong feeling the spanish will keep it in the family. :)

I voted for Máxima and Alexander too. And for Edward and Sophie. I think it would be nice to see them as godparents to the new norwegian prince!

Hmmm...I dunno about your list...

Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark - He's already godfather to Ingrid Alexandra, they'd probably chose someone else.
Crown Princess Mary of Denmark - Married to Frederik, though...Probably unlikely.
[Duke of York
Prince William
Prince Harry] ---> I think they'd go with the non-British royals...e.g. Swedish, Danish, Belgian, Dutch, etc. royals
Mette Marits Mother --> Already godmother to Ingrid Alexandra. They might chose a sibling?
Cristina of Spain (More likely...)
The Prince and Princess of Orange ---> I'd like to see this. They'd be good godparents.

I think Prince Carl Philip wouldn´t be bad. He is in a similar situation as the little prince (elder sister becoming queen, Scandinavian protestant Royal house, close family bonds...his father is godfather of Haakon)
The only thing is, that he isn´t in their stage of life as e.g. the prince of Orange (who also has two little children) is. So I guess, when they don´t choose many godparents, Carl Philip won´t be among them.

I voted on: Rosario or Kyril, Sophie or Edward and Maxima or Willem-Alexander

And I also think Queen Sonja as godmother of Sverre Magnus!:)

I don't think there is the slightest possibility that Maxima will be Leonors godmother. The catholics can only have one godfather and one godmother and it is customary to select close relatives. My guess would be either the king or queen and a member of Leti's family.

Now to Sverre: As Ingrid had almost all the other crownprinces (Felipe, Frederik, Victoria) as godparent it might be Willem-Alexanders turn now, though it is a dubious honour.

But they chose Victoria as godparent and she is just a few years older than C-P so perhaps he will be a godparent. I think he would be a great choice

No, but Haakon have had more to do with Victoria than he has had with Carl Philip, at least when we look at it officially. The recent official visits, etc... Maybe also unofficially, it was Victoria who accompanied them on a ski-trip... Besides, she also read at Haakon and Mette-Marit's wedding.

But Carl Philip would certainly be an interesting choice, in that he knows a lot of the things Sverre Magnus will go through.

No, not that I can think of immediately. Felipe of Spain was one of Ingrid Alexandra's godparents.

Maybe there is a difference between the Spanish catholic church and the Brazilian one, but I (I am brazilian, by the way and have been raised as a catholic) have one godparent and one godmother but my two sisters have two godparents and two godmothers each and some of them are protestants and there weren't any trouble about it. Well, maybe in other countries are different but I also have a lot of catholics cousins who have more than one godfather and one godmother.
