The ceremony will be performed by the Archbishop of Canterbury.

Rudolph 06-20-2018 08:22 AM

I’m thinking maybe Princess Eugenie for a godparent.

Any particular reason for suggesting Eugenie?

Rudolph 06-21-2018 06:42 AM

It’s nothing more than a feeling. William and Catherine seem to get along quite well with Eugenie. She’s also a friend of Pippa and James.

I, too, suspect that we might see Princess Eugenie as a godparent. Either Eugenie or Peter Phillips seem likely choices.

Maybe Harry or Meghan will pop up as one.

I don't think so.

So far, they haven't picked ANY siblings to be a godparent to either George or Charlotte. I think they feel as aunts/uncles they will already have a role in the life of their niece/nephew.

Not Meghan either IMO. They like her (or might) but I think they have known other people longer that might fit the role.

Prince Louis’s christening will take place at 4pm on Monday 9th July at St James’s Palace #princelouis

I'd like to see Princess Anne. I think a senior Royal would be a good addition to the good parent list. I doubt it but it would be nice.

CyrilVladisla 06-27-2018 09:20 PM

A godparent from the Spencer side of the family would be nice. Perhaps Louis Spencer, Viscount Althorp as a godfather.

:previous: Laura Fellowes (Sarah's daughter) is Charlotte's godmother. They have chosen a cousin from both sides of William's family. Zara was for George.

Be interesting to see what family they choose if any now. Cant technically rule out Harry/Pippa/James. William had no close relatives (a first cousin twice removed and a second cousin once removed) but then Harry had his Uncle Andrew. But I doubt we will see them.

Anne would be an interesting choice since she said George's birth "has nothing to do with me". :lol: She's probably even less interested in Louis, as he isn't even a future King.

Well, Laura Pettman is Charlotte's godmother. But if you mean a bonafide Spencer as in one of the Earl's children, then while it's possible it also seems doubtful. The Earl's oldest children grew up in Africa and probably had infrequent contact with William. Also the two cousins William chose as godparents (Zara, Laura) are both close in age to him, the Earl's children are quite younger.

So maybe now Emily Hutt?

She could be a good choice. It would also be interesting since William has only attended 3 cousins' weddings - Laura, Zara and Emily. If he picked all 3 for godparents then that would speak volumes to his affection for them. I guess it could also speak to the 4 cousins' weddings that he didn't attend.

Will the Christening of Prince Louis mark the end of the Duchess' maternity leave? Are the two events related at all? Has the end of her maternity leave been announced?

Rudolph 06-29-2018 08:50 AM

Not related at all. She’s still on maternity leave. She’ll be back to royal engagements in the fall.

Biri 06-29-2018 09:40 AM

How long is the maternity leave in the UK?

Rudolph 06-29-2018 09:45 AM

52 weeks but obviously Catherine wonít be off for that long. Her schedule resumes in the fall.

Pranter 06-29-2018 10:37 AM

IIRC she doesn't take more than 4 or 5 months.
