Prince Christian of Denmark continues to prepare for his confirmation in three weeks, and on Sunday, he attended church alongside his grandmother, Queen Margrethe, at Asminderød Church.
As part of his preparations, Prince Christian, 15, has to attend church services. He attended alongside his grandmother on Sunday at a church near Fredensborg. The service was conducted without singing but did include liturgy. Parish Priest Simon A. Drigsdahl conducted the service.
Drigsdahl chatted with the Queen and Prince Christian ahead of the service.
Bishop Henrik Wigh-Poulsen has been in charge of Christian’s preparations, and he will be in charge of the ceremony in three weeks.
He will be confirmed into the Church of Denmark at Fredensborg Palace Church on 15 May. His father, Crown Prince Frederik, was confirmed in the same church 40 years ago.
Prince Christian’s confirmation was due to take place last year and was postponed a couple of times due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Royal Court announced in March that the religious service would finally take place this May. Under normal circumstances, all of his godparents would be expected to attend the confirmation; however, due to the pandemic, some of the godparents from outside Denmark may not be able to attend.
Prince Christian’s godparents are his paternal uncle, Prince Joachim; Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden; Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway; Crown Prince Pavlos of Greece; his maternal aunt, Jane Stephens; and two friends of his parents, Jeppe Handwerk and Hamish Campbell.
