Were there any other people from different royal houses such as the British or Greek Royal Houses who were godparents to Anastasia? Could Queen Alexandra have been one?

Does anyone know if any of OTMAA were named godparents to any children. I think I read (on another thread) that Tatiana was godmother to Tatiana von Pistolkors, daughter of Princess Paley's son and Ania Vyrubova's sister.

Thanks!

I thought it would be a good idea to sum all infos and pics together in one topic, maybe not only about OTMAA but about other Romanovs too. So please, if you have pics, infos about godparents, days and places etc. post it in here. For me it would be interesting, if the ceremonies for official GD's and Tsareviches were bigger and more luxurios than for "normal" princes and princesses of the House Romanov.

Alexei was christened on 3 September 1904 in the chapel in Peterhof Palace. His principal godparents were his paternal grandmother and his great-uncle, Grand Duke Alexei Alexandrovich. His other godparents included his oldest sister, Olga; his great-grandfather King Christian IX of Denmark; King Edward VII of the United Kingdom, the Prince of Wales and the William II, Kaiser of Germany. As Russia was at war with Japan, all the soldiers and officers of the Russian Army and Navy were named honorary godfathers.

Aleksei Nicholaievich was christened on August 11th 1904 (OS) de facto August 24th in NS by Father Yanishev at Peterhof - in Church of St. Peter and Paul .

Anastasia' christening.

Somehow the dates about Alexei's christening don't match. However, there are complete series of photos taken during Olga's christening in St.Petersburg (In GARF), and I believe there are many other photos for the other Romanov relatives' baptisms.
