We've been waiting for this for so long!
With Prince William and Duchess Catherine's son Prince George's royal christening today - it seems only fitting that the name of their royal baby's godparents have been released!
And so far it seems like this amazing list was WELL worth the wait!
The godparents are Oliver Baker, Emilia Jardine-Paterson, Earl Grosvenor, Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton, Julia Samuel, William van Cutsem and Zara Tindall.
Here is information about each member:
"Oliver Baker, who attended the University of St. Andrews with Will and Kate.
Emilia d'Erlanger, wife of David Jardine-Paterson, who attended Marlborough College (high school) with Kate and also is an old friend to William. D'Erlanger introduced Will and Kate.
Hugh, Earl Grosvenor, the son of the Duke of Westminster.
Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton, who served as private secretary to William, Kate and Harry from 2005-2012 and continues to serve part-time as principal private secretary and equerry, and whose son was in the royal wedding.
Julia Samuel, wife of Michael Samuel, who was a close friend of William's late mother, Princess Diana.
Zara Phillips, wife of Michael Tindall, William's cousin, granddaughter to the queen, daughter of Princess Anne the Princess Royal, who married rugby star Mike Tindall in 2011 and is pregnant with her first child.
William van Cutsem, also known as Hugh, a childhood friend of Will's, son of Hugh van Cutsem, one of Prince Charles' oldest friends who died a few weeks ago. Will is godfather to van Cutsem's daughter Grace, who was in the wedding."
Sounds like the happy parents have put A LOT of thought into this list!
Some people are wondering why Prince George has one more godparent than Prince William or Prince Harry, but apparently there's not secret as to why that is.
It just is! Or at least that is what a source said:
"It was entirely their choice, their personal preference. There was no set number that they had to choose and have gone with seven people. They wanted to include family and friends and reflect their life on both sides."
Aww that's so sweet! They definitely have seemed to have chosen a VERY comprehensive list that definitely covers all of their royal bases!
Brilliant job y'all!
See ya at the royal christening!
