Instead William and Catherine chose old school and university friends to fulfil this role.
Fergus Boyd, a school friend of William’s, and Emilia d’Erlanger, a friend of Kate’s from her days at Marlborough College, will be George’s godparents, according to The Telegraph. Hugh van Cutsem, one of William’s oldest school friends, will also be a godparent to George.
William’s own godparents were royals and included Princess Alexandra, the Duchess of Westminster, and Lord Romsey. George will be christened on 23 October in the Chapel Royal at St James’ Palace. This is another break with tradition – William was christened in the music room at Buckingham Palace. -Shané Barnard Share your thoughts:
