Britain’s Princess Charlotte, the nine-week-old baby of Prince William and his wife Kate, will be christened Sunday at a church on Queen Elizabeth II’s country estate.

Ahead of the ceremony, palace officials announced that William and Kate have chosen five godparents for Charlotte. They included William’s cousin Laura Fellowes, Kate’s cousin Adam Middleton, and three of the couple’s friends.

The queen, her husband Prince Philip, Prince Charles and Kate’s family will be among guests attending the christening at St. Mary Magdalene Church in Sandringham, near England’s eastern coast. The church is where Charlotte’s late grandmother, Princess Diana, was christened in 1961.

Charlotte, the fourth in line to the throne, is likely to make a rare appearance for the cameras. It’s only the second glimpse of the princess in public since she was born May 2.
