Princess Amalia and Prince Christian among royal kids in spotlight at Victoria's wedding

There's been wide speculation on what she will wear on the big day, but who will make up Victoria of Sweden's group of page boys and flower girls when she weds Daniel Westling?

Although there's been no official confirmation from any of the royal households involved, it's being widely reported that the group will contain some of Victoria's godchildren.

Among them are Frederick and Mary's four-year-old son Prince Christian of Denmark, Princess Amalia, six – elder daughter of Willem-Alexander and Maxima of the Netherlands – and from the Norwegian royal family, Mette-Marit and Haakon's six-year-old daughter Ingrid Alexandra.

The claims, which appeared in the Dutch and Scandinavian press may be only speculation at this point. But they are not without base. Since the bride-to-be has neither nieces or nephews or young cousins, it would be only natural she look to her godchildren when choosing page boys and flower girls.

 



Indeed, it's likely the future queen of Sweden will invite all of her five godchildren – a large number, but nowhere near the figure held by Prince Charles, who is godfather to an impressive 32 royal children.

If this is the case, then also attending their godmother's June 19 ceremony would be Princess Mathilde's youngest daughter Eleonor (pictured) and 11-year-old Prince Constantine of Greece, second son of Prince Pavlos and Princess Marie-Chantal.
