So it takes that long to get Mary's relatives from Australia? Wow! I'm disappointed because there is no way he's going to fit in the traditional christening gown.

Since he's being christened in the "Christiansborg Palace Church"...maybe his name will be "Christian" afterall! Nice symbolism! As for the christening gown...this can be altered can't it?

Or maybe they are breaking with tradition, and using a new gown? Maybe one with an Australian detail?

The whole family could go to Copenhagen, and celebrate both occassions together.:)

What a pity that he probably won't be wearing the old christening-robe.:( I like traditions like that.

nokklav 11-14-2005 10:50 AM

i get crazy when two royal celebrations happen at the same time.....

i am disappointed it's gonna be that long and that the fact his name will be christan has become so obvious....

ps: i am not an expert at all but, could it be that it takes so long so that his jaundice will pass, or does it usually pass fast?

tnx!

Ingrid Alexandra turning two is not a major royal event, Haakon can still be the godfather if he is asked, he can even bring his daughter to Copenhagen. If the the royal families should not plan their events so that they would not crash with birthdays they would never get to arrange anything.

KikkiB 11-14-2005 10:57 AM

If they want to break traditions (the Frederik-Christian-Frederik-Christian etc.) and still be traditional in a historical perspective, Kristoffer might be a choice (since they had some kings with that name in the late medivals). Though I think Christian is better than Kristoffer (no offence to all of you with the name Christopher, Kristoffer and other variations!!)

But my guess is that the surprise will lie in the choice of middle names (as he is likely to have 2-3 of them).

Exactly - or he could do as Frederik did with Ingrid Alexandra - and not show.

Both he and Felipe didn't show up. Of Ingrids seven godpartens just CP Victoria, King Harald, Marit Tjesseim and Princess Märtha Louise was there

A reminder: Possible names can be discussed here

Suggestions for sponsors/godparents can be made here

Who is Marit Tjesseim? I know she must be a relative of Mette-Marit, I think she's her mother?

nokklav 11-14-2005 12:33 PM

i was not saying that they should avoid birthdays obviously...it was let's say me thinking aloud. it would be impossible. but an example as alexia's christening on the same day as albert enthronment is ridiculous!

betina 11-14-2005 02:02 PM

Frederik attended his own bachelor party on the same day as I A was babtized
