Why baby Dylan won't
be christened at Clyne Chapel
Catherine Zeta Jones and Michael Douglas latest
The media machine that is Catherine Zeta Jones and Michael Douglas keeps rolling and guaranteeing Swansea lots of world wide coverage. Louise Jeffrey writes
Well - what do you know - the
world's media and the Zeta Jones circus have woken up to the fact that
the christening of babies Dylan and Carys will not take place in Swansea
in mid September. Catherine is quoted as saying that it is difficult to
organise and a problem having so many religions in the family - could it
be that Priests at St Joseph's Cathedral have had a quiet word about
just what the implications of christenings entail? What did we tell you
eighteen months ago - see below!
The latest speculation is that baby Dylan with new sister
Carys will be christened at Clyne Chapel which, like Clyne Farm, was once part of the Clyne
Estate, on the first weekend in September. Dedicated Zeta watchers will remember that Clyne Farm overlooks the Jones
family house at St Andrews Close, Mayals.
Locally the Mumbles Community Council - whose chief claim to fame is
spending lots of our money fighting any plan to redevelop the eyesore Oystermouth Bus Station site - are reported
to be planning on making Catherine a Freeman of Mumbles.
Well, inCLYNE can reveal exclusively that the christening is unlikely to be at the chapel.
We think that Jewish born Douglas and Roman Catholic Catherine might find it uncomfortable in a Church in Wales Protestant
church! The vicar Rev George Bennett says that he hasn't been approached
More to the point we’ve assessed the logistics of bringing a few hundred celebs into a town with a few
hotels which would meet their standard, a top class self catering
complex (one cottage still vacant for the first weekend in September!), a
church which is bursting at the seams with a congregation of fifty or so let alone the
Hello! or OK! Photographers.
However, if Swansea is to be the venue then our bet is
on the RC St Joseph's Cathedral in Greenhill - not far from where
grandmother Zeta lives, close to father Dai's favourite watering holes
and big enough to take a few hundred guests.
So, don't forget, you’ve heard it here first!!!
