Prince George was christened at the Chapel Royal in St. James Palace on October 23. Guests at the intimate affair included members of the royal family and Kate Middleton’s family, as well as the Prince’s seven godparents.
Not included on the list of the Prince’s godparents were Prince William’s brother, Prince Harry, and the Duchess of Cambridge’s sister, Pippa Middleton. Many assumed that they would be named godparents to their nephew.
Prince William’s cousin, Zara Tindall, is the only royal that was chosen as a godparent. The royal couple decided to break tradition and instead have close friends of theirs serve as godparents instead.
Although Prince Harry and Pippa were not chosen as godparents they still took part in the christening by each reading a Bible verse also known as a “lesson.”
