Godparents fit for a princess! On Sunday, July 5, the day of Princess Charlotte's christening, Kensington Palace announced the five lucky people who will serve as godparents to the fourth in line to the throne. 

Sophie Carter, James Meade, Adam Middleton, the Honorary Laura Fellowes, and Thomas van Straubenzee have all been listed as Charlotte's official godparents by her parents Kate Middleton and Prince William. 

The list doesn't include any members of the royal family and only has five godparents as opposed to her brother Prince George's seven.

Carter is a longtime friend of the Middleton family and Kate. She's even holidayed on Mustique with them. Adam is Kate's cousin. 

Straubenzee is the best friend of Prince William and even helped Prince Harry with his best man speech in the couple's 2011 wedding. Fellowes is Princess Diana's niece.

Noticeably absent from the list are Kate's siblings Pippa and James Middleton, who are both set to attend the ceremony, and Prince Harry, who will not be in attendance at today's service.
