Meet Prince Louis's New Godparents

Meet Prince Louis's New Godparents

The six will attend Prince Louis' christening on Monday, taking part in what is expected to be a traditional ceremony at the Chapel Royal in St James's Palace.

The prince's six godparents were among the guests including the duke's close friend Guy Pelly - who was once dubbed William and Harry's "court jester" for his wild ways.

However, Prince Louis's great grandparents - Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh - were not be able to attend the ceremony.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will also be guests, as will Kate's brother James Middleton, and Kate's pregnant sister Pippa with her husband James Matthews - the brother of former Made In Chelsea star Spencer Matthews.

Kate's cousin Lucy Middleton has been named a godmother; her brother, Adam Middleton, now serves as one of Princess Charlotte's godfathers.

Prince George was also christened at The Chapel Royal, St. James' Palace, while Charlotte was christened at the Church of St Mary Magdalene at Sandringham.

Robin Wright Opens Up About Kevin Spacey Sexual Harassment Allegations
In the final moments of season 5, Claire turned to the camera to break the fourth wall for the first time in the series. Spacey will not be returning for the sixth season after allegations of sexual misconduct surfaced in late October.

It's likely that Louis will have five godparents, as does Princess Charlotte, whereas Prince George, a future king, has seven.

Others in attendance will include Prince Louis' newly announced godparents.

Mr. Nicholas van Cutsem is one of William and Harry's oldest friends.

Prince Louis will be christened by the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby. On Monday just before the christening, the palace confirmed that the gown would be worn by Louis once more to continue the royal tradition. For Princess Charlotte's big moment in 2016, Middleton dressed in head to toe white in an Alexander McQueen dress (which she wore again in 2017), with delicate silver jewelry and a flower-filled fascinator. The palace cited the aforementioned as "friends or family of Their Royal Highnesses".

The gown, remade in 2008 by Queen Elizabeth's dresser, Angela Kelly, is an exact replica of the gown first commissioned by Queen Victoria 174 years ago. And not only is that a pretty spectacular present, but it also serves as a touching tribute to his mother, the late Diana Princess of Wales.
