Following the Confirmation Service, Queen Margrethe hosted a Reception at Fredensborg Palace, during which the Royal Family posed for various portraits with Prince Christian in the Garden Room, and they then left the Palace to pose for the press, as a group, as a family, with the parents and also individually, and answer a few questions.
Prince Christian’s godparents include Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden, Prince Joachim of Denmark, Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway, and Crown Prince Pavlos of Greece, but due to the ongoing pandemic, they, as well as most family members and Royal Guests, were unable to attend. Crown Princess Victoria sent her congratulations publicly, while the other godparents did so privately.
