It's a big day for Prince George. Not only is Prince William and Kate Middleton's three-month-old son having his christening, but he now officially has seven godparents.
According to BBC News, the godparents' names are: Oliver Baker, Emilia Jardine-Paterson, Earl Grosvenor, Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton, Julia Samuel, William van Cutsem and Zara Tindall.
So, how did these lucky seven folks attain such honors? Zara is William's cousin, Emilia attended Marlborough College with Kate, William is an old friend of the prince (and they share the same name), Olivier went to St Andrews University with the couple, Julia was a close friend of the late Diana, Princess of Wales, Jamie is their former private secretary and Earl is the son of the Duke of Westminster.
The Archbishop of Canterbury is set to christen Prince George in a private ceremony at St James's Palace in central London, England today, Oct. 23.
