So you're a royal highness by marriage? How droll.

Now we know Geraldine's full name: Geraldine Sibilla Françeska Suzan Maria

Evidently Princess Sibilla of Luxembourg is godmother.  I saw her in some of the photos.  I don't know if there are other godparents.

I was surprised by the christening.  I know Albania is a Muslim country, and I thought the former royals were also Muslim.  Guess not.

According to their website Leka is Muslim and his wife is Albanian Orthodox and it seems like they’ve had Catholicism and Anglicanism in the mix as well!

“ An excellent example of religious co-existence is reflected in the Royal Family: The Queen Mother Sadije Toptani was a Bektashi Muslim, King Zog a Sunni Muslim, Queen Geraldine a Catholic, Queen Susan an Anglican. Prince Leka is Muslim and Princess Elia is an Albanian Orthodox.”

His mother is Australian and at the time they left here I’m sure he would have had a background inclusive of an egalitarian society
