Now that it looks like Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle have patched up their differences, a lot of fans can’t help but wonder if the Duchess of Cambridge is a top contender for the coveted godmother spot for Meghan’s baby. And while there is no doubt that the Duchess of Cambridge will play a very important role in the royal baby’s life – as a fantastic aunt no less – there’s a very little chance that she might actually be chosen to be a godmother. Here’s why.
According to reports, the royal family doesn’t choose close family members to be godparents for their children. As a matter of fact, Prince William and Kate Middleton chose friends from their college years to be the godparents of their three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.
And while there is a chance that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will break royal protocol (which is something they’ve been doing for months now), the royal family believes that immediate relatives will play a role in the child’s life, no matter if they are chosen to be a godparent or not. That, or Harry and Meghan might choose someone that is close, but not too close to them, such as Princess Eugenie, Princess Beatrice, or any of Meghan’s friends from Toronto and Los Angeles.

So far Kensington Palace has not made any comments about Meghan Markle’s pregnancy, nor has the palace revealed her due date. Yet, previous reports have indicated that the Duchess is due sometime in the Spring, which means that she is well into her second trimester already. With that said, it’s without a doubt that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are very excited about the arrival of their first royal baby. After all, Harry himself has been patiently waiting to be a father for the most part of his adult life!
