^ I thought exactly the same. Pelly isn't a great choice and choosing Sophie twice shows that Kate really doesn't have any friends. Sophie has been to an Xmas walk or two, at K's Cirque du Soleil bday outing... and stuff easter-lol Their choices are partly self-serving anyway, their choice for Hugh for G was only motivated to secure one more Grosv generation to mooch off of. I am surprised greatly to see that no Percy has been chosen as Godparent for any of the 3 sprogs.

On Lucy by the dm
"LUCY MIDDLETON

Bristol graduate Lucy, 32, is the Duchess of Cambridge's cousin and works as a solicitor in London specialising in media litigation for Atkins Thomson.

She is said to be  close to the Duchess, and the pair spent their gap year together in Florence.

Lucy was studying Italian and [asked] Catherine to join her."

Correction

Seems it's not going to be Sophie Carter for a 2nd time, but Hannah Carter

"HANNAH CARTER (MRS ROBERT CARTER)

Hannah and Kate attended Marlborough College together, where they played on several of the same sports teams.

Kate's sister Pippa was a couple of years below Kate at the same school and also played sports. "

I *despise* *despise* *despise* in this day and age to still use the archaic "Mrs [husband's name] Surname", like a woman has no identity of herself and is a mere extension of her husband.  thumbsdown

The following guests will today attend the christening of Prince Louis at The Chapel Royal, St James’s Palace:
   
-    The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall
-    The Duke and Duchess of Sussex
-    Mr. and Mrs. Michael Middleton, Mr. and Mrs. James Matthews, and Mr. James Middleton
-    The godparents of Prince Louis and their spouses

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have asked the following people to be godparents to Prince Louis, all of whom are friends or family of Their Royal Highnesses:

-    Mr. Nicholas van Cutsem
-    Mr. Guy Pelly
-    Mr. Harry Aubrey-Fletcher
-    The Lady Laura Meade
-    Mrs. Robert Carter
-    Miss Lucy Middleton

Prince Louis will wear the handmade replica of the Royal Christening Robe, made by Angela Kelly, Dressmaker to The Queen.

The Lily Font and water from the River Jordan will be used during the baptism.

Following the service, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will give a private tea at Clarence House. Guests will be served slices of christening cake, which is a tier taken from The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding cake.

The Royal Christening Robe
The Royal Christening Robe, of fine Honiton lace lined with white satin, was made in 1841 for the christening of Queen Victoria's eldest daughter, Victoria, Princess Royal.

The original gown was subsequently worn for all Royal christenings, including The Queen, her children and her grandchildren, until the youngest of The Queen's eight grandchildren, James, Viscount Severn.

^ They are sisters-in-law, Sophie's brother is Hannah's husband

"Sophie Carter, a long-term friend of the Duchess of Cambridge, has been rewarded for her loyalty and discretion over the years.

An unfamiliar name to all but the most die-hard royal watchers, she is a virtual ever-present at parties and social gatherings organised by the Duchess, including her birthday parties.

An ex-girlfriend of Thomas van Straubenzee, she is a tennis partner of the Duchess, having met her through mutual friends. Her family are wealthy Norfolk landowners, meaning she will be able to drop in on the Cambridges at Anmer Hall whenever she is visiting her parents.

Her brother Robert is married to another of the Duchess's friends, Hannah Gillingham. "

I wondered the same thing, how small will Christenings be for Harry's possible kids? I do like that they are having smaller Christenings and not overblown money wasting monstrosities, but this is ridiculously and oddly small. Just the grandparents, aunts & uncles, godparents, and that's it blink

So, no attendance by the Head of the Church of England at the christening of a great grandchild.  Very interesting and very telling.  Also, many are saying, quite disgraceful.    bignono bignono bignono

I'm sorry Louis Spencer is not a godfather. Pelly was chosen, the "fun" godfather.

Prince Harry spends £8,000 on gift for Prince Louis - with TOUCHING Princess Diana link


Harry has spent an watering £8,000 on a rare first edition Winnie the Pooh book
The newlywed, who married American actress Meghan Markle in a lavish ceremony in Windsor six weeks ago, coughed up a small fortune for the child’s book believed to be the beginning of a small library Prince Harry is making for him.

The book is a 1926 first edition of the story by A.A. Milne, of which 30,000 were printed.

Prince Harry made the extravagant purchase through rare book seller Peter Harrington in Kensington, London, after being inspired by his mother, Princess Diana.

A source told the Sun: “One of Harry's happiest childhood memories was being read a bedtime story by his mother.


Queen and Philip will NOT to attend Louis' christening - but not because of health reasons

Prince Louis' christening details officially announced

The decision has not been made on health grounds and it is understood to have been mutually agreed by the Queen and the Cambridges some time ago.
https://www.express.co.uk/news/royal/985938/The-Queen-news-Philip-NOT-going-to-Louis-christening-and-not-because-of-health-reasons

The 92-year-old Queen will be travelling back from Norfolk on Monday at the start of a busy week full of Royal engagements.

NEVER *despise* correction,for those who correct you ,truly LOVE you .They are willing to displease you and possibly lose your friendship ,rather than see you destroyed. Those who *despise* you ,on the other hand ,will allow you to FAIL...because what do they care ?

Members of the Royal Family arrive at St James's Palace for the christening of Prince Louis.
https://twitter.com/KensingtonRoyal/status/1016340563623333888?s=19

Kate looks the same all 3 Christenings.

Pippa's dress is kinda ok, but the cut could be better (esp the pleats at the boobs always look awful, stuff like that).
Scarole can't say, just saw the vid, but the boobs looked like they are at different heights and that front bit at the stomach I'm not too sure about.
Lucy's dress' pattern is awful and the dress too tight and looser hair might've been better. The hat looks very similar to one K wore, at one of her sprogs' Christenings? I bet it's the same milliner.

Murky's dress' colour is awful but I barely saw it. All high labels, none UK. Must be beneath her. Tone deaf that one. She fits right in, tone deafness is par for the course with the Winds.

Kate arrives for christening holding a sleeping Prince Louis in her arms as she is joined by William, George, Charlotte and fellow royals (but Queen and Prince Philip miss occasion)

    The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh will not attend Prince Louis 's christening
    The royal couple are the great-grandparents of the 11-week-old prince
    The Queen will be travelling back from Norfolk today at the start of a busy week
    Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their children will all attend the service
    Louis' six godparents have been revealed, including former party boy Guy Pelly
