Prince William and Princess Kate Middleton are busy planning the christening of their new baby, Prince George Alexander Louis. Part of those duties include naming the child’s godparents. Some outlets are reporting that Pippa Middleton and Prince Harry of Wales have already been selected.
It’s not easy being a prince...especially if you are about to be christened. In fact, the task is so daunting that one needs SIX godparents.
While six godparents does seem a bit much, this is the future king we are talking about. Media outlets like National Examiner think that some members have already been selected. They also give a rundown of what the christening party will be like, telling their viewers:

“Prince George’s godparents, most likely Pippa Middleton and Prince Harry, will stand with the new parents at the font and promise to raise HRH, Prince George Alexander Louis to follow Christ. Prince George's grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, the Supreme Governor, will look on."
"The month-old prince will be serenaded with hymns by 16 choristers from the Chapel Royal. The future monarch of England will be dressed in the original lace and silk christening robe first worn in 1841 by Queen Victoria’s son, the future King Edward VII. At the reception following the third in line to the British throne’s baptism, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will serve the top tier from their April 2011 wedding cake.”
Those of you who can’t wait for more pictures of Prince George have some new photos to look forward too. While the christening is a more private event, the royal couple will be releasing photos of the prince being baptized.
After seeing how cute their last family portrait turned out (above), we can’t wait!
