In the Church of England (That is what they are being baptized into, correct?), do godparents serve a particular role? (Besides supposedly supporting the child within the faith.) Are there defined roles for godparents, or rules for qualifying to be one?
As someone baptized Catholic, I only had one set of godparents. The whole royal issue of having a whole flock of GPs seems odd to me. Do “regular” churchgoing folks in the U.K. do the same?
