British royal Prince William has reportedly chosen his party-loving pal, Guy Pelly, to be godfather to Prince George.

Prince William is set to choose Pelly as one of six godparents for the newborn, in line with royal tradition.
The 31-year-old businessman, who organized William's stag party, could prove to be a controversial choice as he is currently facing trial over a drunken driving charge, which he denies.
He has been a close confidant to both William and his brother, Prince Harry, for many years.
A source tells Britain's The Sun, "He is thrilled to bits about being picked and everyone was congratulating him. He's been told informally by the prince. Guy's been a very discreet and good friend to William over the years. Those are qualities he wants to pass to George."
The other five close associates rumored to be lined up as godparents are Prince Harry, Prince William's sister-in-law, Pippa Middleton, and the royal couple's pals James Meade, Alicia Fox-Pitt and Thomas van Straubenzee.
