Date set for royal christening

April 17 is the date set for the christening of Princess Ingrid Alexandra, daughter to Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit, Aftenposten writes.

25/02/2004 :: Judging by tradition Ingrid Alexandra will have only royal godparents, but her parents could break this convention and choose from friends or family on both sides.

As to who will carry the little princess and what robe she will were is not yet decided. However, the christening robe is likely to be the one used by all descendants of King Olav. This garment was sewn by Princess Ingeborg, and is embroidered with the names of all the children that have worn it.
