That makes sense, how can you choose protestant godparents for a kid to be raised in the catholic faith, Im catholic and about to receive my confirmation and I've always been taught that.

Cristina worked by this logic. Elena is Juan Valentín's godmother and Felipe is Miguel's godfather.

Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift... That's why it's called present...

Well i think that the godparents will be Elena and Jaime. Elena is the older sister and successive to the throne after the Princes Felipe and his children.In this sense,I believe that they are “the most important” couple of the family after the kings and the Princes of Asturias and they will be the godparents of the new baby.

Actually, I think Carlos was the one who converted. Correct me if I'm wrong.

in catholic christenings there's only one godmother and one godfather, so the possibility of both sisters being godparents is non existant

I hope the goodparents of the next childe will be Infanta Cristina and Iñaki Urdangarín.
Every time i se a pic of CP Letizia together with Infanta Elena she always looks cross..Infact i don´t think that CP Letizia and Infanta Elena have the best relationship together.
Long live the royal family in Denmark

This is very complicated. So I believe that I am going to be discarding.

I do not believe that the Kings repeat as godfathers. The Kings were chosen as godfathers of Leonor, if we subject ourselves to the tradition, this it was an indirect way of supporting Leonor as heiress. Since I have repeated several times, the topic of if Leonor will be or not heiress, it is a strictly legal topic, in the thought of the Royal House, the politicians and the society, Leonor will be the heiress.

Neither I believe that Jaime or Iñaki are the godfathers. Jaime is not a godfather of any of the children of the Infanta Cristina, Iñaki, is not a godfather of the children of Elena. And Letizia was not the godmother of Irene either. So it would be very strange.

The godmother can be any of 4 sisters of the parents, probably me it would be able with Elena or Thelma. The godfather, is more complicated, because there are few men in the family. If he is not the grandfather Jesus Ortiz, I share the opinion of which they can be Beltrán Gómez Acebo or Konstantin of Bulgaria. The Prince Felipe is a godfather of Luis Gómez Acebo and of Sofia of Bulgaria. They and their wives are of the best friends of the Princes.

This is modern times. They should have both royal and non-royal godparents for the yet unborn prince whether the law is changed or not. I'm still in favor of the Infantus Eleanor being the Queen of Spain. Just make it retroactive to 2005.

i voted for cristina and menchu, although it's unlikely they will choose two ladies.

(i secretely voted for other royals as well in the hope that they will invite another royal houses to the christening :), but i doubt that will happen considering how reserved the spanish family is).

i think that a possible choice is Pablo of Greece since he is cousin and friend of Prince Felipe, and Felipe is godparent of one of his sons. For Godmother i think in infanta Elena because she is the oldest sister os Prince.

I think they will choose Thelma or Erica as a godmother and one of Felipe's cousin or close friends as the godfather. It's sure that eventually one or even both Infantas will be "employed" being the godmother of one of Felipe's kids, but not necessarly this time.
