The christening of the two-month-old baby boy won’t be until July 9, but speculation from royal fans has of course begun.
And it turns out there’s a good reason why the odds that Meghan Markle will be selected as godmother are only 14/1. And that’s because traditionally, royal parents choose close friends or even former staffers with the honour of being a godparent.
Prince Harry, 33, was not made godfather to Prince William and Kate Middleton’s first two children. Prince George, 4, has seven godparents, among them Julia Samuel, a good friend of Princess Diana, while three-year-old Princess Charlotte has five godparents, including Prince William’s cousin Laura Fellowes.
A bookmaker from British betting company Ladbrokes, Jessica Bridge, explained the odds in an interview with People.
“As with George and Charlotte, [William and Kate] chose close and trusted friends and aides, rather than immediate family members, and the odds suggest that will be the same with little Prince Louis,” she said.
