KATE Middleton and Prince William will snub several senior members of the Royal Family went it comes to Prince George‘s christening.
The royal couple want the christening to be an “intimate, family affair” — so the likes of Princess Anne and Sophie, Countess of Wessex, have been left off the guest list, according to Britain’s Daily Mail newspaper.
George’s great-uncles, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward, are also not attending the hugely anticipated event on October 23.
William and Kate have already chosen to break with recent royal tradition and have their son christened at the Chapel Royal in St James’s Palace, because it is smaller and “more personal” than Buckingham Palace.
The full guest list will not be confirmed by Kensington Palace until nearer the day, but it is likely to include great-grandparents the Queen and Prince Philip, and grandparents Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall, as well as uncle Prince Harry.
Kate’s parents, Michael and Carole Middleton, sister Pippa and brother James are also due to attend.
Details of the six chosen godparents are also yet to be released.
“All I can say is that the christening will be an intimate affair,” said a source.
“The christening will be a small, intimate and personal family affair.”
