The new babys godparents
Haakon and Mette-Marit's close friends Victoria of Sweden, Fredrik of Denmark and Felipe of Spain is Ingrids godparents... hwo is going to be the next childs godparents (the baby is going to be born in November so i think the chirstening will take place in February)

1. Prince Nikolaus of Greece - A great friend of them
2.Prince Pavlos/Maria-Chantel of Greece - Great friends
3.Prince Edward/Sophie of Wessex - Great friends
4.Prince Kyril/Rosario of Blugaria - Great friends
5.Prince Willem-Alex/Maxima of Holland - Great friends
6.Prince Constantin/Laurentien of Holland - Also great friends
7.Morten Andresen - A very close friend of Mette-Marit
8.Per/Espen Hoiby - MM's brothers
9.Kristin Hoiby Bjornoy - Her sister

Can some make a poll? I have no idea how I make that!

Some of my friends was kidding with me that Valentino or Gwenyth Paltrow was likley candidates as they are friends of them...

And BTW here is the poll of Ingrids godparents:

norwegianne 09-22-2005 03:53 AM

I have created a poll as suggested by LaMinka, it is multiple choice, as the Norwegian royals traditionally have more than two Godparents.

You have about 5 months to vote, and debate the topic- (two months until the birth, and three months after.)

Please be civil in your discussions and remember to read the rules from time to time.

If anybody else wants to have a poll created in a particular forum, the rules give out the way to go about it.

Maybe Constantijn or Laurentien of the Netherlands? Haakon is Countess Eloise's godfather, so maybe he wants to ''return the favour.''

Pavlos or Marie-Chantal are also possibilities, seeing as MM is godmother to their youngest child.

sara1981 09-22-2005 03:54 PM

i vote Earl and Countess of Wessex

because this is a second baby, i think the godparents will be people close to them. Mette's family makes sense, and their friends Kyril and Rosario might be the chosen ones, or among the chosen ones.

SpiffyBallerina 09-22-2005 06:28 PM

I saw the pictures of Haakon and M-M with Willem Alexander and Maxima of the Netherlands. I believe they're close friends. It would make sense to choose at least W-A as a godfather.

LadyS 09-23-2005 03:26 AM

Maybe Martha Louise or Ari. Perhaps Princess Mary as Frederik is Ingrid's godfather.

HMQueenElizabethII 09-23-2005 04:08 AM

I also think The Earl and The Countess of Wessex are close friends to Haakon and Mette Marit, maybe they will ask one of Edward or Sophie to be godmother/ godfather to their second baby.

That's cool. I did not know Willem and Maxima were close friends of Haakon and MM. I am not surprised, though.

didem 09-23-2005 07:25 AM

I voted
Constantijn or Laurentien of the Netherlands

carlota 09-23-2005 07:27 AM

i voted for constantijn and laurentien, w-a and maxima, kyril and rosario or prince(ess) pavlos.

Lucidu 09-23-2005 01:29 PM

I voted for prince(ess) Pavlos, kyril and Rosario, Kristin Høiby Bjørnøy or Edward and Sophie

norwegianne 09-25-2005 06:07 AM

I think Haakon and Mette-Marit used a lot of the obvious choices with Ingrid Alexandra. So, my guesses this time: Crown Prince/ss Pavlos of Greece, Willem-Alexander or Maxima, and Other - I really think that either Harald or Sonja will be among the godparents.

I'm not so sure about Mette-Marit's siblings - I felt that her mother being sponsor to Ingrid Alexandra was rather extraordinary.

It might be fun though, if Gwynneth Palthrow would be one of the sponsors ;) Doubtful, but fun.

norwegianne 09-25-2005 06:15 AM

Also, if you haven't voted/ in the Guess the Name and Sex of the New Baby thread... why not do it?

Princess Maxima 09-25-2005 09:29 AM

My vote goes for Maxima and Willem-Alexander, as they are very close friends with Haakon&Mette-Marit

Nichola 09-27-2005 05:11 PM

I'm guessing the Countess of Wessex and Princess Maxima will be among the baby's godmothers.

LaMinka 09-27-2005 05:44 PM

I was voting Sophie or Edward and Máxima and Willem-Alexander.. I also hope that MM's sister Kristin Hoiby Bjornoy will be a godmother. Kristin look like a great person and she never talk to the press (Like Sven O. Hoiby) and we never see pictures of her.
This two is the only picturesd of her i have seen: (Pictures is from Getty)

norwegianne 12-03-2005 10:33 AM

Do you think that a boy will have different godparents than a girl, in the sense of more males than females among them? Ingrid Alexandra had a good mix, but she's the heir to the throne.

Royal Fan 12-03-2005 06:53 PM

The boy will have the following as Godparents im sure
Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark
Crown Princess Mary of Denmark
Duke of York
Prince William
Prince Harry
Mette Marits Mother
Cristina of Spain
The Prince and Princess of Orange

sara1981 12-04-2005 01:28 AM
