I am hoping for Maxima but I don´t think they will ask her. Am expecting relatives, Maria Laura for example.

Tilda1234 10-19-2007 11:03 AM

i think as well that they will stick to a family member or maybe close friend. And the godparent should be catholic. So they won't take a member of another royal family, so not Maxima, Mary ....

Possible are Joachim and a cousin (female) of Mathilde. Maybe instead of Joachim Prince Felix of Luxembourg.
Or Maria Laura and a relativ/cousin (male) of Mathilde.

I don't think they will chose Joachim , because he's already godfather of his own sister , Letitia-Maria

And it's very possible they want a catholic godmother , but Maxima is originaly catholic , so maybe ...;)

COUNTESS 10-20-2007 08:51 PM

The Duke of Edinburgh is a very old man, I doubt it.

Rice 10-20-2007 11:47 PM

I think Princess Astrid and Prince Laurent

Are the Luxembourg Royals related to the Belgian royal family through Grand Duchess Josephine-Charlotte? and if so, then maybe Princess Alexandra or Prince Sebastian should be a Godparent.:flowers:

crm2317 11-02-2007 12:12 PM

I really think they will chose Princess Maria-Laura and I hope they do.

However they may go for one of the Luxembourg royals such as Felix or Alexandra or maybe they will choose Crown Princess Maxima as she remained catholic upon marriage.

Princess Maria Laura
Prince Felix of Luxembourg

principessa 03-14-2008 12:11 PM

Another possibilty: HRH Prince Alexander of Belgium, HRH Princess Lea of Belgium or HRH Princess Marie-Esmeralda of Belgium

PrincessofEurope 03-31-2008 05:42 PM

if they were to choose a non-family member and a catholic why not Letizia but i dont think it will be Maxima

acdc1 03-31-2008 06:46 PM

I really don't think that they'll choose anyone except family or very close friends. Perhaps Maxima or MAYBE (and that's a big maybe) Letizia if they choose a foreign royal. But other than that, I suspect it'll be Maria Laura or Joachim, and I really don't know who else.

Godparents for the new Prince or Princess of Belgium

Princess Claire and Prince Joachim.

HRH Princess Máxima is still a Roman Catholic,she did not nor will not convert.

Following the pattern with the 3 elder children it would seem that it is a godfather from Mathilde's family and a godmother from Phillipe's family:

- Marquis Alfonso Pallavicini (godfather)
- Princess Maria Laura of Belgium (godmother)

The Godparents: Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden and Princess Claire of Belgium. graaf Sébastien von Westphalen zu Fürstenberg

Is it two Godmothers because Victoria is not catholic?

GlitteringTiaras 04-16-2008 03:26 AM

I'm going to assume they will ask family members, and if they decide on a royal most likely it will be Maxima with Mary as a long shot (even though Mathilde is godmother to Isabella).

Princess Luna 04-16-2008 03:32 AM

Who is graaf Sèbastien von Westphalen zu Fürstenberg?

princess leonor 04-16-2008 03:40 AM

Why are there going to be 2 godmothers and only one godfather? Is that a normal thing in the Belgium Royal Family?

indian princess 04-16-2008 04:47 AM

i'm confused too...i thought they always chose one godmother and one godfather....i'm a bit disappointed though as i was hoping for maria aura to be godmother...

windsorgirl 04-16-2008 12:39 PM

When we had our daughter christened, the rule was that just one of the godparents had to be Catholic, I don't know if they do things differently in Europe, though.

Rebafan81 04-16-2008 12:44 PM

I didnt know that Maria Laura had the title of Princess. What does HIRH stand for?
I think they will stick with close family this time also.
