Prince Louis will be christened today at The Chapel Royal, St. James’s Palace, in London. Ahead of the royal baby’s christening, Kensington Palace revealed the child’s godparents. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have chosen three godmothers and three godfathers who will all hold a special place in the life of their youngest child.

Interestingly, the Cambridges did not choose any of their siblings as godparents for Louis.

Get to know Prince Louis’ godparents below:

Mr. Nicholas van Cutsem

The Cutsem brothers have been friends of Princes William and Harry for many, many years.

Nicholas van Cutsem grew up living at Anmer Hall. His brother, William van Cutsem, is one of Prince George‘s godparents.

Nicholas and his wife, Alice Hadden-Paton, were on-hand at both William and Harry’s weddings. The couple’s daughter, Grace van Cutsem, made headlines for covering her ears on the balcony of Buckingham Palace after William and Kate’s royal wedding. The couple’s other daughter, Florence, was a bridesmaid in Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding back in May.

Mr. Guy Pelly

Guy Pelly’s mom, Lady Carolyn Herbert, was good friends with Prince William’s mom, the late Princess Diana. The two boys grew up together and maintained a close friendship since childhood. According to The Sun, Pelly actually planned William’s bachelor party before his 2011 nuptials.

Pelly has a degree in management and “ran a string of London nightclubs including Royal-favourite Mahiki in Kensington as well as Public, Whisky Mist and Tonteria,” according to The Sun.

Just about everyone thought that Pelly was going to be one of Prince George’s godparents, and many royal watchers were surprised that he wasn’t. Alas, he’s now getting a royal godchild of his own.

Mr. Harry Aubrey-Fletcher

Harry Aubrey-Fletcher is the youngest son of the Lord Lieutenant of Buckinghamshire, Sir Henry. Aubrey-Fletcher and Prince William have also been friends for several years, meeting in prep school before both attending Eaton.

“Harry has always had a close relationship with the two Princes. While his father’s position as Lord Lieutenant of Buckinghamshire ensures a closeness with the Royal Family, Harry made headlines back in 2013 for playfully tugging on Prince William’s ear during the 2013 Cheltenham Festival,” The Sun reports.

The Lady Laura Meade

Lady Laura Meade is married to William’s close friend, James Meade. Her father, the Earl of Romney, is good friends with Prince Charles.
