1. Prince George

Prince George has seven—we repeat, seven—godparents. The list includes both family members (Zara Tindall) and longtime family friends (Olivia Baker, Emilia Jardine-Paterson and William van Cutsem). It also features a few familial ties, like Earl Grosvenor and former Cambridge private secretary Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton. Oh, and how could we forget about Princess Diana’s good friend, Julia Samuel?

2. Princess Charlotte

Unlike her older brother, Princess Charlotte only has five godparents. This includes two of her dad’s childhood friends (Tom van Straubenzee and James Meade) and two of her mom’s close pals (Sophie Carter and Adam Middleton). Rounding out the list is Laura Fellowes, who is Prince William’s cousin and the daughter of Lady Jane Fellowes (Princess Diana’s sister).

4. Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor

Archie’s godparents are no stranger to the Sussex family, but there are only three of them. This includes Prince Harry’s childhood nanny, Tiggy Pettifer, and close friends Mark Dyer and Charlie van Straubenzee.

5. Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor

Unfortunately, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle haven’t shared many details aside from Tyler Perry, who confirmed he’s a godparent. Oprah Winfrey previously addressed rumors and revealed that she’s not Lilibet’s godparent.

“I don’t need to be a godmother,” Winfrey reportedly said. “I mean, I’m a godmother by default. I’m a neighbor, I’m a friend.”
