As you know the christening of the new Danish royal twins is coming up — April 14, 2011 — at Holmens Kirke in Copenhagen, Denmark. The service begins at 3;30pm; however, the Danish television network, DR1.dk, will begin broadcasting their coverage of the christening at 12pm and will end at 6:30pm.
According to Billed Bladet, DR1.dk will be:
…closest to the baptism, when the entire day will be broadcast from a studio built for the occasion, in front of Holmen’s Church.
‘I always look forward to the big transmissions, because they gather all of Denmark. The events in the royal family means a lot to many Danes, and I consider it a great and vital task to communicate them in a proper and meaningful way,’ says Tine Gøtzsche.
Tina and Anna are joined by TV-doctor Peter Qvortrup Geisling, historian Jes Fabricius, twin researchers and many others who do viewers learn about the church, family, traditions, relationships, dresses, visitors and the ornaments.
Thursday 14th April sends DR1 from pm. 12.10 to 18.30, where viewers are invited to follow the whole ceremony in the church and family and their guests when they go on to the afternoon reception and later private party at Amalienborg. (B.B.)
For those who live outside of Denmark, there is a good chance the christening service will be available online via DR1.dk’s website. As soon as I find out more information from DR1 I will let you know.
