A few days ago, 3 of his 8 sponsors/godparents sent their regrets--Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden and the CP Couple of Norway. Today the Communications Secretary for the Danish Royal House announced that there will be no guests from abroad at the confirmation due to Covid restrictions. This includes 4 more sponsors, i.e. uncle Prince Joachim living in Paris, maternal aunt Jane Stephens and Hamish Campbell living in Australia and CP Pavlos living the U.S.A. That leaves only one sponsor, Jeppe Handwerk, who lives in Denmark.
Unfortunately, grandfather John Donaldson and his wife will also be unable to attend as they currently live in the U.K. Hopefully, Princess Benedikte, and perhaps her daughter, Princess Alexandra will be there. Also, cousins Princes Nikolai and Felix. I understand there is currently a cap of 25 people (not counting the Bishop, choir, etc.) but that could, of course, change before May 15.
