Christening video links

Here is a set of links to clips and entire replays of the christening. DR1 ended up being the only network which relayed a live stream outside Denmark. We have expressed here how much that has been appreciated. Here at the blog we have had many messages of appreciation which must go to DR1 - some were viewing an online streamed event for the first time and really enjoyed the experience. Hopefully these links should stay active for a while and there are certainly a few hours of viewing. The blog has had a very close listen with ear phones and cannot detect any gasp in the church when Mary said the name Isabella. This has been reported in some Australian media. Unless someone right there in the church says it did happen, we are inclined to think it didn't happen. The chair which Christian is sitting on is a birthday gift to him from his grandmother the Queen. If you look at Christian's order of service booklet in the church you can see pictures have been stuck onto the pages to keep him amused. His father, his mother and various objects, and one is of Caroline Heering from last week's Billed Bladet! And, see how many men you can spot with pink ties - it wasn't only little girls who got into the pink theme and the princess mood! Many thanks to jema, the best Danish royal video librarian there is!
