Godfather IV: Prince William

03/19/1999 at 12:00 AM EST

Britain's Prince William on Thursday became godfather to Prince Konstantine Alexios of Greece, the infant son of Crown Prince and Princess Pavlos, at a ceremony in central London. William, 16, was the only member of England's Royal Family to attend the christening. Still recovering from an operation on a broken finger, Wills arrived at the ceremony dressed in a dark suit -- and a sling.

  • William's grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, had been expected to meet her son Prince Charles's companion, Camilla Parker Bowles, in public for the first time at the ceremony. But a spokeswoman for the Constantine family had said earlier that neither the Queen -- who disapproves strongly of Charles's relationship -- nor Parker Bowles would attend.
