Prince Louis will have six godparents, it was revealed today.

He will have plenty of guidance on the road of life as he navigates his role as fifth in line to the throne.

The 11-week-old will be christened at 4pm in the Chapel Royal at St James’s Palace today.

So who has got the nod to take responsibility for his religious education?

Here are the friends and relatives of William and Kate trusted with helping him along.

He helped organise William’s stag do, so might be in the market for putting on a birthday party at Sinbad’s Soft Play Centre too.

You might remember when he dressed up as the Queen and imitated her voice in 2005, that time Prince Harry put on a Nazi uniform for a fancy-dress party.

He used to run a string of nightclubs popular among the Chelsea crowd, and was dubbed William and Harry’s ‘court jester’ for his wild ways.

The former Stowe public schoolboy is said to have met the royal brothers through the Beaufort Hunt and married Holiday Inn heiress Lizzy Wilson in 2014.

William and Harry are close friends with Hugh?s four sons - William, Edward, Hugh and Nicholas ? and it has been rumoured Hugh jnr may become one of Prince George?s godfathers.

Her husband James Meade is already one of Princess Charlotte’s godparents, so perhaps they will try to outdo each other in who can be better.

Mr Meade went to Eton with William and has been a good friend since school.

His wife was born Lady Laura Marsham, and is the daughter of the 8th Earl of Romney.

Mr Meade, known to his friends as ‘Meadey’, once took part in a charity boxing match at Boodles Boxing Ball in 2008 – watched by William and Kate, under the nickname ‘the Badger’.
