Queen Sonja will carry her granddaughter to the baptismal font at the palace chapel next Thursday when Leah Isadora Behn, daughter of Princess Märtha Louise and author Ari Behn, is christened.
The other godparents to Leah Isadora will be Princess Laurentien of the Netherlands, Märtha Louise's friends Gry Brusletto and Katharina Salbu, Ari Behn's brother Espen Bjørshol, Didrik Vigsnæs, (the husband of Princess Märtha Louise's second cousin Marianne Ulrichsen) and Ari Behn's friend composer Jon Andreas Håtun, better known by his stage name Jono El Grande.

Laurentien is a surprise for me

for me as well! i did not know martha and laurentien had a close relationship.

is it common to choose so many godparents in the protestant church?

who were maud's godparents?

HMQueenElizabethII 06-09-2005 09:43 AM

It's so strange that Haakon or Mette marit are not godparents of Leah.But there would be alot of pics on that day.And we would see new hats of Martha Louise,Queen Sonja,Mette Marit and Laurentien too.

It's relatively common to have a lot of godparents/sponsors, yes. The church recommends anything from two to six, I think it was.

Maud's godparents/sponsors are: Princess Alexandra of Berleburg, King Harald, Crown Prince Haakon, Kåre Conradi (Norwegian actor), Trond Giske (Norwegian politician), Marianne Ulrichsen (Märtha's best friend/second cousin) & Anja Sabrina Bjørshol (Ari's sister)

Does anyone know if the christening will be broadcasted?

norwegianne 06-15-2005 06:16 PM

It doesn't say anywhere in the reports I've seen. NRK has a news report at noon, which is when the christening will start, but I think this will very much be a low key affair. It isn't like when Maud Angelica was christened as the first of the King's grandchildren, when one didn't know about Ingrid Alexandra's arrival, and was the first female born with rights to the throne after the change in law.

It's not a national affair, but a family event.

According to this article Princess Märtha Louise has known Princess Laurentien some years now, and is happy for her friendship. They meet as often as they can. She praises her for being a "flott dame" = great lady!

Thank you norwegianne for translating the article and Larzen for the photos. I admire how honest Märtha is about personal issues, such as childbirth and how she and Ari go about raising their children. Oh no! Not Pia. She looks horrible. Definitely not an outfit for a Christening! Anyway, this is my favourite photo. Aww! They all look really lovely. ML is wearing a really pretty pink suit, and Angelica looks so cute. :p Hmm, in the first photo, all the women are wearing pink; is that a coincidence?

NORWEGIAN ROYALS CHRISTEN LITTLE LEAH ISADORA

16 JUNE 2005

Princess Martha Louise of Norway and her husband Ari Behn celebrated a landmark day in the life of their second little girl Leah Isadorah when the two-month-old was baptised at the Royal Palace chapel on Thursday.

Martha Louise, dressed in pink, held the couple's elder daughter, Maud Angelica, while dad Ari cradled little Leah in his arms as the family arrived. It was Queen Sonja, however, who took the infant in her arms at the altar as the christening took place.

Martha Louise recently explained the origins of her little girl's unusual name – her second moniker was inspired by Isadora Duncan and as far as the baby's first name is concerned, she quipped: "I've always been a big fan of Star Wars – Princess Leia has always been the most beautiful in the whole world!"

Leah Isadora, King Harald and Queen Sonja's third grandchild, is fifth in line to the throne.

I have seen worse;) Her suit is very nice and today she hardly looks pregnant:confused: whilst she looked very pregnant in Tromsø.

Leah Isadora is a beautiful child, her sister reminds me so much of Märtha. I think everyone looks good, they have a short clip on NRK and you can see someone I think is Countess Eloise trying to run up to Laurentien when they are about to leave the chappel:D

Im not at all sure about Laurentiens hat, it looks sort of like turban(is that an english word?)

norwegianne 06-16-2005 10:23 AM

Can I just say that with all the pink; Haakon and Harald's ties should not be that red.

And I like Mette-Marit's hats. At least you can see her, unlike the times when she goes very far in the other direction.

Marius looks so cute in his bunad.

And Maud Angelica looks a bit miffed in the picture with the entire family. But she's looking more and more like Märtha Louise every day.

I totally agree why does Ingrid Alexandra ALWAYS have to wear pink??? Maud Angelica seems to be wearing different colours every time. Mette Marit seems so conservative sometimes when it comes to what IA wears.

Well, I think MM has the feeling, that she has to try extra hard (because of her "wild" past). This shows in many areas...so also in dressing her daughter.

why some of the commentators are so bothered by the sight of pink? Pink color has been in fashion for at least two years, already, ladys. I mean....at least in Scandinavia...

What a warm and intimate christening.

The "Oscar" goes to the decorations (specialy of the Baptismal Sink) and the atmosphere created with the children playing (specialy Maud in that pictures where she seems to pic a flower from the sink) and the way their mothers handle them - so sweet.
The Award "So-and-So" goes to the different shades of pink chosen by Royal Family women (IA included).
The Award "Remove-This-From-Photo" goes to Ari's beard, Ari's mother outfit and to the way Ari's holds Leah (she seems to be falling in any minute in most pictures).
The award "I-wish-to-know-what-to-say" goes to Laurentien's outfit and hat.

She also went out with Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume of Luxembourg for a short (??) period of time.

Lena 06-16-2005 09:46 PM

And she seems to work for the norwegian cosmopolitan and for a TV-show called "Shopaholic". So one could say, she´s Sven O´s forerunner or member of the group "living good in the slipstream of my Royal relative or my Royal friend".
I must say, I was quite surprised, that a grade of relation to Sonja is practically not existent...so far I´ve always thought, she´s the (first grade) cousin of Haakon and Märtha Louise :confused:

Larzen 06-17-2005 04:44 AM

The conection is even weaker, she is the stepdaughter of Queen Sonjas nephew Kai Otto Haraldsen, when her mother Jasmin married Kai Otto Haraldsen, Pia was from another relationship.
https://www.vg.no/pub/vgart.hbs?artid=4100295

I dont know if Kai Otto Haraldsen has adopted her since her name is Haraldsen now. However there is AFAIK no blood relation to Queen Sonja.

******
Märhtas good friend who she has been on tour with Oslo Gospel Choir, Sigvard Dagsland sang the psalm "Kjærlighet fra Gud" - "Love from God" That was Sonjas mother Dagny Haraldsens favourite psalm, nice gesture I think.

Märtha and Ari had written a prayer to their daughter together with the bishop that Märtha read during the service. I want attempt a translation as Im afraid that would sound exceptionally silly:cool:

Here it is in Norwegian atleast
Quote:

Herre; la oss vandre i tro og tillit
og se livet folde seg ut
slik Du viser oss det
der enhver dag er evig.
La oss virke ut fra kjærlighet,
Såkornet som gir liv
Såkornet som er hellig
Herre,
La oss vandre i tro og tillit
Herre, la oss gå veien sammen,
hver i vårt eget spor.
La hjertene våre slå i samklang,
hvert med sin egen tone.
La oss lytte til essensen av oss selv,
Som er det virkelig Jeg
Som er Deg

Don't get me wrong Emily I enjoy the pink tones I just found quite boring that they All dressed in same tone. And I definetly loved MM headpiece! More than I loved the Queen's hat...

My Oscar still goes to mothers with their babies (I haven't seen Marianne Ulrichsen photo before but it just reinforce my "award").

That's nice that Leah's great-grandmother is part of the ceremony too, even if only through her favourite psalm. I love couples that add their own personal touch to things and it's so lovely that Ari and Märtha wrote a prayer for their daughter especially for this occasion. :)

A fun article from the christening
 
I've translated this article from www.nettavisen.no Side 2. I found it quite amusing as the journalist has interviewed two teenage girls who was on the Palace court yard watching people come out from the christening. Writing in red = comments from me.

”That pink tie was cool”
Royal get-togethers is a study of good and bad taste. Leah Isadoras christening was no exeption. Look at the photos and the fashion-sentences.

Synnøve Hoff Fjeldstad (15) and Monica Ormerud (15) had taken the trip from Buskerud county to look at the celebreties flowing onto the Place court yard after the royal christening. “Märtha is probably really nice” says Synnøve and asks Monica if she remembers the pink dress the princess wore last time. The girls waited patiently for almost 3 hours with hopes of photos of the royals and the celebreties. “He is stilish. That pink tie was cool” the girls say about movie maker Harald Zwart.

Boisterous Marius
The only thing that shortened the waiting was the Crown Princess’ son Marius. Time after time he poped up in one of the upper windows of the Palace. He amused himself greately while he threw balloons (I assume they were filled with water), paper aeroplanes and shouted to the spectators. “What a ill-manered kid” Monica says and shake her head. Finaly they came in a row. Known and unknown. With or without bunads. And with small and large hats.

What a hat!
“Geeze, what a hat!“ the girls exclaim when a lady with a big green hat passes (I wonder who that might be?!?). They think it is nice that so many wears a bunad and imediately chooses the Nordland bunad as the winner. “It was the first time we got to see them so close” the girls says satisfied while they stroll off the Palace court yard and leaf eagerly through the photos on their digital cameras.

By. Elisabeth Norheim (https://pub.tv2.no/nettavisen/side2/mote/article408148.ece) - you can see the photos mentioned above on the link.
Translated by me.

wasn't there anybody to tell marius he can't do that? that's absolutely silly and really unrespectful... he is not a prince, but the princess' son and as such he should behave a little bit better in my opinion.

Norwegian Princess Martha's daughter Leah baptized at palace chapel; has no royal title

The Associated Press
OSLO, Norway — The youngest member of Norway's royal family, named Leah in part after the "Star Wars" movie princess, was baptized Thursday at a palace chapel.

Princess Martha Louise and writer Ari Behn's second child, Leah Isadora Behn, was born April 8 and is fifth in line for the Norwegian throne, although she has no royal title.

Martha Louise, 33, told the state radio network NRK that the name Leah was partly inspired by the fictional Princess Leia of the "Star Wars" films.

"I must admit that I have always been a big Star Wars fan, and Princess Leia has always been the world's most beautiful," said the Norwegian princess.

Martha Louise said they picked the name Isadora due to her husband's fascination with the life and death of American dancer Isadora Duncan, who died in a 1927 car accident. She said they decided to spell the first name Leah because they had often seen it and liked it during his travels in the Middle East.

The child was carried to the baptismal altar by her grandmother Queen Sonja, the wife of King Harald V. Her godparents include Princess Laurentien of the Netherlands. The couple's first child, Maud Angelica, is 2.

Even though Martha Louise is the king's oldest child, her brother Crown Prince Haakon is first in line for the throne because the constitution did not allow female monarchs. That has since been amended.

He's just a child. Maybe he should behave a little better but he should also behave as any child would, and that does mean naughty sometimes. :)

So, do you mean that it would be okay for a boy prince to throw water balloons out the window but not okay for Marius since he is just Mette-Marit's son and not royal in any way?

I agree lashinka2002. Marius, despite his mom's title and rank in Norway, and despite where he lives, is still a young boy and young boys (and girls, too!) do naughty things sometimes. It's part of growing up. Better to hear that it was Marius throwing water balloons out the window than to read that it was the King or Haakon or Ari! :p

Here are some pictures from colourpress, I think they are a mixture of before and after church, not really sure

1 Princess Ragnhild and Erling Lorentzen
2 and 3 Mette-Marit arriving (or leaving)
4 Finally a picture that shows Eloise and Claus Casimir, atleast Eloise was in the chappel (not sure about Claus Casimir), she was sitting rather unpatiently on Constntijns knee, and I have also seen a picture of her on the floor.
5 Aris father arriving
6 Haakon Ingrid and Aris brother
7 Haakon and Ingrid
8-10 Marius and cars:p

Den skal tidlig krøkes... ;)

The earlier you start... the more normal they think it is.

Here is some pics from All Over / Korpa. Marius is a really naugthy boy. Look at him klimeing upon the kings BMW 760 and posing on the back on Haakon and Mette-Marits car. The picture of him kliming is taken at the entrance at the back on the castle. I think is unbelivable that Haakon didn't stop him. Any other father would.

I don't think he is kliming on the car!!! It looks like..... That he is on the volvo of Haakon.... I have seen my little brother from the same age, doing the same....

Marius has his right foot on the top of the front door on the Kings BMW. That's a fact.

He's just a little boy, and no matter how active, he could not really do much damage to either the King's car or Haakon's car. Were he actually damaging the car, I'm sure Haakon would've said something.

When I was young, both my brother and I used to climb all over my parents car. We both used to climb right to the roof of the car (cars were bigger back when I was growing up) and sit up there to watch all the action going on in the street or at night time to watch the stars.

Maybe Haakon didn't stop him because he wasn't really doing anything really wrong, and hoped that he would get to use his energy then, instead of in church? It's not unusual for a boy that age to have lots of energy, and problems sitting still, and a lot of parents deal with it by letting them run around a bit beforehand. Had anything been really wrong, I'm sure he would've been stopped.
