And with Meghan’s stylist/BFF Jessica’s three children playing an important role in the duchesses May 2018 wedding, it looks likely that Jessica will be given the title of godmother.
Harry’s older brother, Prince William, and sister-in-law, Kate Middleton, currently have 3/1 odds, but it’s an unlikely choice. In royal tradition, uncles and aunts already have a role in the child’s life, so godparents are usually friends of the parents or less direct relatives.
“Harry & Meghan have a load of options for the godparents, and I have a sneaky feeling that we could see a celeb or two get the call,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.
George and Amal Clooney are frontrunners when it comes to the stars at 8/1. Serena Williams is 10/1, David Beckham 20/1 and Elton John (who performed at the couple’s wedding reception) and Oprah Winfrey are both 33/1.
