One of the most obvious choses may be Harry's brother Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton but it's quite unlikely. Traditionally, the royal family steers clear of choosing Godparents within the family since aunts and uncles already play an important role in the child's life.

"The likelihood is that Harry and Meghan will choose godparents who reflect both his or her British and American roots and are non-royal,” royal expert, Richard Fitzwilliams, told Express.

Another possible contender is one of Meghan's closest friends, Jessica Mulroney. The two are reportedly very close as the stylist's three children, were all key parts of Meghan and Harry's wedding in May 2018.

Harry's long-time best friend, Charlie van Straubenzee could also be a likely option for the job. Harry was the English businessman's best man at his wedding to Daisy Jenks in August 2018 and the friends grew up together.

George Clooney and Amal Clooney, who was one of the select fifteen women to attend the Duchess' stateside baby shower in NYC on February 19, are very close with the royal couple and could be a nice choice as Godparents.

A more likely contender could be Serena Williams, who helped plan the Suits alum's baby shower and has been giving Meghan baby advice during her pregnancy. As OK! readers know, Serena, 37, has her own little one, Olympia, 1, with husband Alexis Ohanian.
