The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have chosen five godparents for their daughter Princess Charlotte, including William's cousin Laura Fellowes.

William and Kate asked Miss Fellowes - the daughter of one of Diana, Princess of Wales's sisters, to take on the spiritual role for the nine-week-old Princess, as well as friends Sophie Carter and James Meade, Kate's cousin Adam Middleton and William's close friend Thomas van Straubenzee.

Kensington Palace revealed the names of the chosen few ahead of the fourth in line to the throne's christening at the Church of St Mary Magdalene in Sandringham, Norfolk.

The godparents will join the Duke, Duchess, Charlotte and Prince George, the Princess's great-grandparents the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh, grandparents the Prince of Wales and Carole and Michael Middleton, step-grandmother the Duchess of Cornwall and Kate's siblings Pippa and James Middleton for the traditional religious service.
