Christening of Princess Eleonore of Belgium
 
Does anyone know Eléonore's christening date? And, what do you think, it will be a private cerimony or a public one as, for example, Princess Isabella's christening?

Not yet. Probably it will be similar christening like her older siblings.

It will be a private ceremony with only family and close friends that always have been like that with treir other 3 childern.

Maybe they will select June 11th, which is Queen Fabiola's 80th birthday. I think that would be a lovely gesture since the new little Princess has the Queen's name.

Why exactly June 27th?

At the announcement of the birth of Princess Eléonore the palace also announced that Princess Claire of Belgium and Princess Victoria of Sweden will be the godmothers, so not Queen Fabiola unfortunately.

Le Prince Philippe et la Princesse Mathilde sont très heureux de pouvoir annoncer la naissance, le 16 avril 2008 à 4h50 à l’hôpital Erasme à Anderlecht, d’une petite sœur pour la Princesse Elisabeth, le Prince Gabriel et le Prince Emmanuel.
Elle portera les prénoms de Eléonore, Fabiola, Victoria, Anne, Marie.
La Princesse et sa fille se portent bien.
L’enfant pèse 3,210 kg et mesure 50 cm.
Les marraines d’Eléonore seront la Princesse héritière Victoria de Suède et la Princesse Claire de Belgique.
Le parrain sera le Comte Sébastien von Westphalen zu Fürstenberg.

I do agree that it would be a nice gesture, but I also read the announcement on the official website of the Belgium Monarchy that the King and Queen are not in Belgium that day.

So I don’t think that the child will be christened that day. Although it will be a modest ceremony, with family and friends I suppose, I don’t think that they will hold it without the grandparents. And also the health of the father of Princess Mathilde can be a factor of delay, I think.

[Knowing that Queen Fabiola has her 80th birthday on June 11th, and the King and Queen not being in the Country, I guessed that they would have some celebration at a day in a weekend nearby, but I have not seen any announcement of some special celebrations of Queen Fabiola yet, though, B.T.W.]
Maybe they release some pictures of Queen Fabiola with the little Princess Princess Eléonore on June 11th.

Can't wait till the christening indeed.

According to Het Laatste Nieuws the christening will be on June 14th, at the chappel of the castle Ciergnon.

Marchesina 06-07-2008 09:51 AM

I knew it will be on June 14th too, at the castle of Ciergnon, but for this second information, I think we were all agree. Anyway, even if it will be on 11th,the important is that finally we have a date, and it will coming very soon. We have only to wait.

stephanievl 06-10-2008 02:41 PM

According to all the belgian media it will be on the 14th of june in the church of Ciergnon, also the place where athe christening off all the other childern were. It was always in an intimate atmosphere with only family and close friends. They always invite a select amount of press to make pictures and images
