Christening of the Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine of Denmark

Today, 14 April 2011, the christening of the in January born twin children of TRH Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary of Denmark took place. The names were kept hidden until said aloud by the Crown Prince (little Prince) and Crown Princess (little Princess) in the church. The little Prince was named Vincent Frederik Minik Alexander and the little Princess was named Josephine Sophia Ivalo Mathilda.

The godparents of Prince Vincent are John Stuart Donaldson, HRH the Prince of Asturias, Prince Felipe of Spain, HSH Hereditary Prince Gustav of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg, Count Michael Ahlefeldt-Laurvig-Bille, Baroness Helle Reedtz-Thott and Caroline Heering.

The godparents of Princess Josephine are HRH Princess Marie of Denmark, Countess of Monpezat, HRH the Duke of Castro, Prince Charles of Bourbon-Two Sicilies, Patricia Bailey, Lensgreve Bendt Wedell, Birgitte Handwerk and Josephine Rechner.

The christening took place in the Holmens Church in Copenhagen, the same church where father, Crown Prince Frederik, was christened, and where grandmother, Queen Margrethe, then Princess Margrethe, married the Prince-Consort.

The Crown Prince carried his youngest son while the Crown Princess carried her youngest daughter.

The little Prince wore the christening robe earlier used by among others his older brother and sister, while the little Princess a dress wore that once belonged to HM the late Queen Ingrid of Denmarak, born Princess of Sweden, but has never been used.

The twins were born on January 8 at 10:30 (Prince) and 10:56 (Princess), at the Rigshospitalet in Copenhagen and joined older brother, Prince Christian, born October 15, 2005, and older sister, Princess Isabella, born April 21, 2007.

Like their older brother and sister, Vincent and Josephine are titled Prince/Princess to Denmark and Count/Countess of Monpezat with the style of Royal Highness, and they follow them in line to succession to the Danish throne.
