AceShowbiz - Lady Celia Vestey, one of the godmothers of Britain's Prince Harry, has died aged 71.
Her passing was announced in Britain's Daily Telegraph newspaper, with a statement reading, "Celia Elizabeth SRN BA. Died suddenly, but peacefully, on Saturday 28th November, aged 71 years. Adored wife of Sam."
"Much loved mother of William, Arthur and Mary and loving Granny of Ella, Frankie, Sam and Cosima. Private family funeral. Memorial service later. Family flowers only please, but donations gratefully received in Celia's memory to Ebony Horse Club."
The charity, which uses horse riding to raise the aspirations, life skills, education and well being of young people in Brixton, paid tribute to their patron on Twitter, with a post that read, "We're so sad to hear of the death of our Patron, Lady Vestey. Wonderful memories of weeks spent at Stowell with horses & children. She made us so welcome & did so much for us. We're going to miss her hugely. RIP Celia," accompanied by a picture of her feeding a horse.
Rumor has it, Harry's christening took place following a "full-scale family row" back then. Princess Anne was reportedly upset because she was not picked as a godmother. She refused to attend the christening and chose to go shooting with then-husband Mark Phillips instead.
