The court of Copenhagen yesterday (Friday) announced that the daughter of Prince Joachim and Princess Marie, who was born on 24 January, will be christened in Møgeltønder Church on Sunday 20 May.
Unusually for a christening, it will be an evening event, taking place at 5 p.m.
Møgeltønder Church is the parish church to which Prince Joachim’s manor Schackenborg belongs. This was where Prince Joachim and Princess Marie, his second wife, were married on 24 May 2008.
In keeping with Danish royal traditions, the Princess’s names will only be announced at the christening.
