Even although Prince William and Kate Middleton appear like clear options to serve as godparents for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s newborn infant boy, it is not probably that either of them will acquire the honor, in spite of how close the royal fab 4 have come to be. Royals typically only select close close friends and former staffers to serve as godparents, so even although royal youngsters are offered an typical of six godparents, instant family members members nevertheless cannot score a single of these spots. Sorry, Will and Kate!

Not all family members is barred from becoming godparents. Kate and William have appointed many cousins to be their children’s godparents. 1 of Prince George’s godparents is William’s cousin Zara Tindall, and Princess Charlotte’s godparents consist of Kate’s cousin Adam Middleton and William’s cousin Laura Fellowes. The most current addition, Prince Louis, has Kate’s cousin Lucy Middleton as a single of his godparents. We know Harry and Meghan like to eschew royal tradition when it comes to PDA, and although we do not assume they will be appointing family members members for the part of godparents, it appears they could possibly go against the norm in a further way.

Even prior to Meghan’s pregnancy was created public, the royal newlyweds visited close close friends George and Amal Clooney at their Lake Como villa this Summer season, exactly where it was rumored that Meghan and Harry asked the A-listers to act as godparents for their future youngsters. In return, George and Amal (who are currently parents to 1-year-old twins) supposedly created Meghan and Harry guarantee to return the favor if they decided to have a lot more.

But, as it turns out, the rumors are not accurate. According to InStyle, George lately denied that he and Amal would bear the title as royal godparents, saying, “I am a father of twins, I have adequate sh*t to deal with — actually!” But we’re positive George, Amal, Meghan, and Harry will stay a tight-knit group. In February, George defended Meghan in the course of an interview with Who magazine, calling out the paparazzi for harassing the duchess. “She’s a lady who is seven months pregnant and she has been pursued and vilified and chased in the very same way that Diana was and it really is history repeating itself,” he stated.

Even although we assume George and Amal would make excellent godparents, there are nevertheless some other worthy contenders. At the leading of our list: Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian. We currently know Meghan and Serena have a rock-strong friendship, and the tennis star even attended the royal’s beautiful infant shower in February. So, would not producing Serena and Alexis the godparents make best sense?

Other favorites we have in the operating consist of Meghan’s stylist and BFF, Jessica Mulroney, and her husband, Ben, as nicely as Benita Litt — Meghan’s longtime buddy who appointed the duchess as godmother of her personal youngsters — and her beau, Darren. We’ll hopefully get confirmation on who will be infant Sussex’s godparents quickly!
