Kate Middleton and Prince William have named three godparents for their newborn baby Prince George, and their choices are a break from tradition.
Bypassing Prince Harry, Pippa Middleton, and the usual royal suspects, Will and Kate instead tapped three old friends from childhood and college:
- Fergus Boyd, a friend from the University of St. Andrews
- Emilia d’Erlanger, a long-term friend of Prince William who also has known Kate Middleton since their time at Marlborough College
- Hugh van Cutsem, one of his oldest childhood pals
No other members of the royal family have ever selected as godparents friends who didn't have royal ties. William and Kate: They're just like us!
