I don't think Madeleine and Chris will choose both Carl Philip and Daniel as godfathers, especially if they want more children, and Madeleine is said to want to have many children. Nor do I think Sofia will be chosen this time, at least not if Carl Philip is to be godfather.

Marty91charmed 06-16-2015 08:23 AM

I think another sof Chris sisters will be picked, as well as Carl Philip and/or Daniel.. and some friends of the couple possibly...

I like Paul Gustaw or Olaf... ;)

Archduchess Zelia 06-17-2015 10:46 AM

My final guesses will be Prince Edmund Paul Gustaf, Duke of Skåne and Prince Oscar Paul Eugen, Duke of Närke (I also like Alexander Paul Eugen and Carl Christopher Paul).

Pranter 06-17-2015 10:49 AM

Isn't the name to be announced today?

Nicholas Paul Gustav, Duke of Ångermanland

wok_kym 06-17-2015 11:09 AM

It's a great name, good choice!

Biri 06-17-2015 11:10 AM

I heard too, beautiful name.
Maybe Prince Nikolai of Denmark will be one of his godparents?

Pranter 06-17-2015 11:11 AM

Love it! Prince Nicky!

He is too young and Madeleine and Chris chose someone from family and circle of friends...

Archduchess Zelia 06-17-2015 12:04 PM

Nicolas Paul Gustaf – well, at least I got Paul Gustaf right. Nicolas is nice. I would have preferred Oscar myself but Nicolas isn't a bad name. I fall in every time with those family names though. I really should know better than to think that any of the Swedish royals would go for family first names :biggrin: I did think Eugen was a possibility – but then again, Madeleine never met the guy, why would she honour him?

He isn't too young. He has been confirmed which makes it possible for him to be a godfather. He's not going to be though – I'd be surprised if Madeleine and Chris have ever even met him.

Love the names. Perhaps P. Madeleine's cousin Gustaf will be a godfather, or even better, Prince Daniel. A first duchy for Ångermanland.

Lady Nimue 06-18-2015 01:15 AM

Good names. :flowers:

Yashal 09-14-2015 02:51 AM

Leonore didn't have foreign royals as godparents, so it's quite unlikely her younger brother will get one.
I think Carl Philip is a shoo-in. Natascha von Abensberg-Traun might be too, or maybe they'll choose one of Chris' paternal half sisters.
Then one of Madeleine's cousins from her father's side and two or three friends.

SwissRoyal 09-29-2015 03:13 PM

My bet for the godparents: 6 godparents, just like sister Leonore. Madde and Chris each pick 3. As with Leonore, Chris will make sure his 3 godparent picks are good catholics:

Chris's picks:
His sister Natascha
His oldest niece from sister Tatiana
A male friend

Madde's picks
Carl-Philip
A male cousin
A female friend

Svensk Damtidning speculated on their last week's issue about the godparents and got these candidates, from which Madeleine and Chris can pick the godparents:
Cedric Notz, the friend and bestman of Chris
Lovisa de Geer or Ellen Dinkelspiel, Madeleine's friends
Carl Philip
Daniel
Chris's sister, possibly Annalisa O'Neill from his father's side
Madeleine's cousin

LadyFinn 10-01-2015 01:20 AM

Johan T Lindwall claims that Carl Philip accepted during the weekend to be godfather, he was asked quite recently.
Margareta Thorgren says that who the godparents are, it will be told on the christening day.

I do not think that it is particularly surprising that it will be Carl Philip godfather. Definitely will be also some sister of Chris. And the others natural friends of the couple.

Madame Verseau 10-01-2015 06:50 AM

@Lady Finn - so does Expressen know as fact that Carl Philip is one of the godparents, or is Lindwall speculating? The CIO is not willing to confirm that story.

LadyFinn 10-01-2015 06:56 AM

Of course it isn't a fact. The court hasn't told it at a press release, Margareta Thorgren hasn't confirmed it to the media either.
Lindwall has quite good connections and sometimes he gets it right at the things concerning the royal family, sometimes he doesn't. This time it is quite easy to say that Carl Philip will be a godfather. It would be really surprising if he wouldn't be chosen as a godfather.

Marty91charmed 10-01-2015 07:56 AM

I think the Cp is a safe betting! No wonder there are lots of guesses, as Carl Philips is the easiest speculation. The difficult part, would be the guess of the other godparents.

LadyFinn 10-03-2015 02:47 AM

Margareta Thorgren said that the godparents will be told on the day of the christening. But on Leonore's christening, there was a rehearsal a day before and the press got photos of those who were the godparents and speculated, and the court published the godparents then, the day before the christening.

Madame Verseau 10-03-2015 05:58 AM

I never understood keeping the names of godparents secret until the day of the christening. Why?

LadyFinn 10-06-2015 10:41 AM

According to Expressen, Carl Philip comfirmed to Johan T Lindwall today at the visit to Dalarna, that he will be a godfather to Nicolas.

HereditaryPrincess 10-06-2015 10:51 AM

:previous: You beat me to it :biggrin:
I find it interesting that Carl Philip told the press now, I wonder if we'll find out the names of the other godparents before the christening or if Carl Philip was just a "one off"?

The choice of Carl Philip doesn't surprise me as I had suspected that either he or Victoria would be chosen.
