The arrival of the new royal baby is so close, and all the public eyes are already in London. Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are waiting for their firstborn child this spring. The main question is what will be the name of the baby Sussex, but part of the public and royal fans have questioned about who will be a godfather to a newborn.
The royal couple has not yet named the person who will be a godfather to a baby royal. We are only sure that Prince William and Kate Middleton are not on the list for a baby`s godparents.
Why is not Prince William the baby`s godfather?
The brothers are very close, since the early ages of their childhood, but it does not matter when it comes to the running for a godfather because it is practice in the royal family that they do not pick close family members for this role.
The explanation is very simple; close family members will already have a big and important role in child life, so a godfather must be someone out the royal family, for example, a close family friend. Children of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge pick close family friends for all their three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.
Prince Harry is not a godfather to Prince William`s children either
Prince William and Kate Middleton stick to the royal family tradition when it comes to godfathers for their three children, they did not pick Prince Harry for that role, but they looked for godfathers in the not so close family members.
Zara Tindall, daughter of Princess Anne, is one of the Prince George`s seven godparents. She has got a royal title, so she was perfect for that role.
Adam Middleton, Kate`s relative, was one of the five godfathers of Princess Charlotte. The close family of Kate Middleton did not name for this important role.
Will Prince Harry and Meghan Markle stick to the tradition?
It does not mean that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle must follow the royal family tradition and pick a spiritual guide for the list of close family friends, they could pick whatever they want in their child`s life.
According to the press Duke and Duchess of Sussex has a huge inner circle of close family friends. Harry and Meghan have strong friendships with many Hollywood famous celebrities. Among them are Jessica and Ben Mulroney, Serena Williams, Princess Eugenie, and Jack Warren. These are all great picks for the spiritual guide for the new royal baby.
George Clooney is also on the list for the baby`s godfather
High on the list for the potential godfather of Sussex firstborn is a famous actor, George Clooney. It is known that Clooney is a supporter of Meghan Markle, and he said that she has handled herself excellent during her rise as a Duchess of Sussex.
According to the press, Clooney said that he will not be a godfather to a new royal baby and that he has not had any free time in his life because he has full hands with his twins, Ella and Alexander. He is married to Amal Clooney, a human rights lawyer, since 2014, and they have babies in 2017.
