Within a few months, Prince Christian turns 18. Now he can also celebrate being godfather of the beautiful little Prince Gustav Albrecht zu Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg. Prince Gustav is the son of Prince Gustav (son of Princess Benedikte) and Princess Carina zu Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg
The christening took place in the chapel at Berleburg Castle. Prince Christian was accompanied by his parents Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary.
Prince Gustav's other godparents are: Princess Theodora of Greece, Ellen Hillingsø, Arabella Gaggero, Prince Franz-Albrecht and Prince Carl-Anton.
Wish we had more photos from the christening because Mary really wore an interesting outfit! She dazzled in a brand new belted Zimmermann dress. Think the belt can also be worn as a necklace because "originally" the dress comes with a ribbon as belt. Love that Mary chose the "necklace" instead. Makes the outfit a bit more elegant.
Mary embraced the style with an old wide-brimmed hat. She first wore it back in 2004 (!!) at an official reception at Christiansborg on occasion of the couple's wedding (here). Mary has worn it once again in 2006. Since then, we haven't seen the masterpiece. Till now. I am very excited.
The huge shiny diamond earrings are purchased some years ago at Bruun Rasmussen auctions.
