Isabella, a name fit for a princess

Your Ad Here

The daughter of Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark and Australian-born Crown Princess Mary has been named Isabella in an intimate christening ceremony in Denmark.

The little princess has been christened Isabella Henrietta Ingrid Margrethe.

Princess Mary revealed the name at the service at Fredensborg Palace Church, north of Copenhagen, attended by the Danish royal family and members of Europe's royal houses.

In keeping with Danish tradition, Princess Isabella was given three other names: Henrietta, after Mary's late mother Henrietta Donaldson, Ingrid after Frederik's maternal grandmother and Margrethe after Frederik's mother, Queen Margrethe.

Born on April 21, Princess Isabella is third in line to the throne, after her father and older brother, two-year-old Prince Christian.

The name of the little princess was kept secret until the christening ceremony, also in keeping with Danish tradition.

Even Bishop Erik Norman Svendsen, who performed the baptisms of both Princess Isabella and Prince Christian, was not informed until the last minute.
