Nicholas van Cutsem, Guy Pelly, Harry Aubrey-Fletcher, Lady Laura Meade, Hannah Carter, and Lucy Middleton may sound like characters straight out of Downton Abbey, but for little Prince Louis, they're very real people with newly appointed roles in his life. These are the six who will serve as godparents for the youngest child of Prince William and Kate Middleton, per USA Today, announced ahead of the royal baby's christening Monday at St. James' Palace. Harper's Bazaar offers some insight into the half-dozen new godparents, including Lucy Middleton, who's a cousin of Kate's, and van Cutsem, who's a good friend of both Prince William and Prince Harry and whose own daughters served as flower girls at both princes' weddings. The other four are listed as old friends of the couple. (More Prince Louis stories.)
