  1. I wonder if Prince William keeps up with his godson. He was quite young when he became a godfather. 🙂

    1. He was at his wedding, but I haven’t publicly seen Prince Constantine Alexios with Prince William otherwise, though they probably do meet at family events!

      1. I imagine you’re right. Constantine Alexios is not in the “royal radar”, so there are few, if any, photographs.
