George has seven godparents which includes loyal staff, college friends of William and Kate, one cousin, and old family friends. These choices were unique because it includes non-royals, when, in most cases, the godparents are foreign royals.
The only royals that attended the christening were Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Philip, Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla Duchess of Cornwall, and Prince Harry, and, of course, Kate’s parents were in attendance.
