Bit earlier of an announcement for a September christening, but perhaps to do it before court goes on summer vacation.


His baptism is also in the same chapel as Madeleine's kids. It seems even more likely the christening will be more low key like Leonor and Nicolas', than Victoria's kids. Maybe a bit in between.

Well Expressen got it half right. It was right on the date but not on the venue. Alexander will be 10 days shy of 5 months old.

No royal godparents unless it's family.

Can we rule out royal godparents based on location alone

I think it highly unlikely, unless ones related, but nothing announced yet.

As we're still quite some time away from September, this thread will be closed.

Discussion on godparents/etc can be done in the Sex, name, godparents and Duchy for Carl-Philip and Sofia's 1st child thread.

A quick lock at the various Royal Calendars show that Queen Margrethe (Prince Carl Philip's godmother) as well as Crown Prince Haakon will probably not attend the christening of Prince Alexander. They both have other engagements.

Princesses Birgitta, Désirée and Christina will not attend at Alexander's christening. Princess Birgitta (godmother of Carl Philip) attends at the traditional golf competition with her name in Mallorca from Wednesday to Sunday, she says that of course it is boring but she can't be in two places at the same time.
Princess Désirée said first yes, but had to cancel. Princess Christina and Tord Magnuson are on a trip on Friday, Magnuson confirms to Expressen. Whether princess Margaretha attends is still unclear.
The court would not comment on if Princess Margaretha will attend the christening on Friday:
- We tell about who comes to baptism only on the morning of the baptism takes place, said director of the press department Margareta Thorgren.

Unfortunate the aunts won't be in attendance. Other than Birgitta it could not have been known ahead though. But sad none of his godparents, except perhaps Leopoldo, will be in attendance as margrethe doesn't look to be going.

The godparents will be announced on Friday. There will be foreign royals attending the christening, but we do not know if any of them will be godparents.

I guess we will see the Crown Princess as godmother, then Prince Alexander of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, Prince Manuel of Bavaria, Lina Frejd and Carl Philips best men as godparents.

Jan-Åke Hansson. I was thinking among the same lines. We'll see on Friday.

Foreign royals have been invited but have there been confirmation of who's coming? As for the Haga princesses not going, not all of them attended each baptism; but to let Expressen and SD tell it, it's a major scandal.

How about waiting for the official guest list that will most probably be published on the Christening day itself? As has been the case with the previous Christenings?

Scandal is where the tabloids want scandal. Let's just assume the family will have a nice and memorable day.

We can count Crown Princess Mary out, too, I think. She has an engagement at 4pm on Friday and I doubt she'd want to rush back after the christenings. I think Mary was the most likely member of the DRF to serve as godmother, so while there theoretically still could be Danish attendance, I sadly doubt we'll see a Danish royal godparent.

Well, Crown Princess Victoria is godmother to Princess Leonore and Prince Carl Philip is godfather to Prince Nicolas, but their other godparents are non-royals.
