Kate and William have announced the godparents to their youngest son Louis. The privileged few are all friends or family of the royal couple.

Yesterday Kensington Palace announced the godparents that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have chosen for 11-week-old Prince Louis. The select few were honoured at Prince Louis’ christening.

Kate and William’s choice of godparents for Louis reflect their closest friends and relatives, although, like those who look out for the other children in the family, there are no siblings included.

They have also evened things up in some households, with spouses of previously-named godparents being included this time around.
