After weeks of speculation, the list of seven people who will be Prince George’s godparents was revealed Wednesday at his christening.
Rumored candidates Pippa Middleton and Prince Harry did not make the cut. Only one royal did – Zara Tindall, William’s cousin and daughter of Princess Anne.
Former school friends Oliver Baker and Emilia Jardine-Paterson were included.
In a nod to his mother the late Princess Diana, her close friend Julia Samuel is a godparent, as well as family friends Earl Grosvenor and William Van Custem (fun fact, another Van Cutsem – Grace – was a flower girl at William and Kate’s wedding and stole the show at the balcony kiss)
William and Kate’s principal private secretary (and the former secretary of Prince Harry ) Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton rounds out the coveted list.
