William and Kate’s school friends tipped to be their son’s godparents

Britain’s Prince George is to be christened at 3 pm on Wednesday 23 October in a 45-minute ceremony.  Kensington Palace has confirmed that the baptism of Prince William (31) and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge’s, two-month-old son will take place in The Chapel Royal at St James's Palace, central London, and will be conducted by The Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby.  Earlier in the day Queen Elizabeth (87) will host a reception at Buckingham Palace for the Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Trust.   There’s been a lot of speculation about who George's godparents will be and who will be invited to the event, but royal aides haven’t confirmed anything.  It was recently reported the ceremony will be an intimate affair, which could see William’s aunt Princess Anne (63), his uncles Prince Andrew (53) and Prince Edward (49) and Edward’s wife, Sophie, Countess of Wessex (48), all excluded from the guest list. What's more, William's school friend Fergus Boyd (31), a financier, and Kate’s school pal Emilia d'Erlanger (31), an interior designer, have been tipped to be two of the George’s godparents.  Prince Andrew and Sarah, Duchess of York’s, eldest daughter, Princess Beatrice (25), was the last royal baby to be christened at The Chapel Royal in 1988, while the queen, Princes Charles (64) and William were all christened at Buckingham Palace.   Bang Showbizz Share your thoughts:
