Since the exciting news was revealed in October, we’ve all been wondering about the gender, name and potential godparents of the Duke and Duchess of Sussexes baby. And now there are new reports suggesting the baby’s godparents are “all but confirmed”.
The top contenders for the duty? Drumroll, please….George and Amal Clooney!
One family insider has reported that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have chosen the A-list power couple to be godparents to their first-born, and that George has had a “strong hunch” that he and his wife will be asked.
George’s cousin Ben Breslin has also spoken of how the actor will make a great godfather to the new royal baby.
“I’m all for it,” Ben told the Mail Online. “He’d make a wonderful godfather, he’d make a wonderful just about anything – he’s a good guy.”
When asked if he would like to welcome the Duke and Duchess to his hometown after the baby’s birth, Ben replied, “Absolutely, that would be crazy but fun.
“I’m not in on those Royal circle talks, but that’s not to say next time he comes in we might sit down for an hour over bourbon and talk about it.
“George’s like the rest of us, he’s as common as an old shoe, but he likes to hobnob with the big people, so that’s great.”
George and Amal are close friends of the royals and were both in attendance at the royal wedding at Windsor Castle in May.
A source said, “Amal and Meghan have been close for years, and Harry and George have become buddies because of that.
“They’re much closer than the headlines let on.”
According to People, Amal and Meghan have been especially close since Meghan moved to London after the end of her TV show Suits.
A source told the US magazine, “Meghan and Amal have known each other for a while [and share] many interests.
“Amal has been helping Meghan settle into London life. It was a very natural friendship from day one.”
Harry and Meghan are also reportedly hiring the same nanny as the Clooney’s.
Although it’s likely that Harry and Meghan’s baby will have more than one set of godparents – Prince Louis has six – we can’t wait to hear the verdict. Fingers-crossed the Clooney’s will be on the list!
