Princess Diana's Godchildren & Christenings
 
Hi, I am brand new to this place, and I am finding the information is fantastic! My name is Rosalie, and I am from Newark, Delaware, USA. My username is robijutovi@AOL.com. My query is this: Can anyone help me with Princess Diana's godchildren, and their christeing dates, please? mI have been racking my brains trying to find the answer to this question, but so far, to no avail. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I know that Laura (?) Knatchbull was one of her godchilds. Also the Greek prince Phillipos.

I'm also busy with researching godchildren and godparents, but then of all European families. See my signature below

To start you off ... Prince Phillippos of Greece is one of her godchildren.

Rosa Monckton, a friend and former head of Tiffany's in London, now heading the Princess Diana fund has a little girl called Domenica. Unfortunately, the child has Down's syndrome. Shortly after Diana's death, Rosa spoke out that Diana had specified her will give her godchildren a certain amount or special items. In return, she received a cup wrapped in a kleenex with a demand for a receipt. The real issue with Diana's godchildren is that Diana's provisions in her will for them went unheeded by her relatives (not her sons but her sisters and mother).

Sad.

And what is so special about Diana being Domenica's godmother is that Domenica has Downs Syndrome. Diana loved that child!

She is Lady Penelope Romsey - married to Lord Romsey. They are good friends of the British RF, especially Prince Charles. It was at their home (Broadlands) that Diana & Charles spent the first few days of their honeymoon. Lord Romsey is Earl Mountbatten's grandson.

That's who I thought it was, possibly. Makes sense with the Mountbatten connection to the Greek Royal Family.
