Prince George's godparent hails from Tiverton
12:00pm Friday 25th October 2013 in News
THE Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have chosen a friend from Tiverton as one of their son’s seven godparents.
Huge speculation about who William and Kate would choose to be Prince George’s mentors ended on Wednesday with his christening at St James Palace.
One of those invited was Emilia Jardine-Paterson, an old school friend of Kate’s from Mid Devon.
She was one of those chosen as a godparent as the Duke and Duchess favoured friends over royals and dignitaries.
Emilia, whose maiden name was d’Erlanger, has known Prince William since she was 19 and Kate even longer, attending Marlborough College with her.
An interior designer, she is said to be helping the Duke and Duchess renovate their apartment at Kensington Palace, which would include decorating Prince George’s bedroom.
