Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry are expected a baby in the new year, a ROYAL baby with a fancy Royal title if it’s a boy (if it’s a girl, well…tough scones, kid). The new royal baby gets their own fancy backyard, one they won’t have to share with their cousins. According to The Daily Mail, the baby might also have a very fancy set of famous godparents.
George and Amal Clooney went to Harry and Meghan’s wedding this year, which means they’re either obviously very close friends, or George and Amal won some kind of radio contest for two tickets to the Royal wedding. Clearly it’s the first. They’re such good friends, Kashi should put them all on a box of cereal. George must think so too, because according to George’s cousin, George thinks he’s bound to be named Godfather George when Harry and Meghan’s baby is born.
George’s Kentucky cousin Ben Breslin spoke to The Daily Mail, which is very “My aunt’s cousin’s brother’s mechanic said…” Ben says George is a good guy who would make a “wonderful” godfather. Ben also said that George thinks he’s got a hunch that he’s the first in line to be asked to be the baby’s godfather. A source adds to that, saying that George has told a couple of people that he thinks he’ll be asked. The same source goes on to say that George, Amal, Harry, and Meghan are all much closer than the public know. Is that source implying a Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice situation? I don’t think so, but now I can’t stop picturing all four in a giant bed.
The Daily Mail believes that George and Amal are “all but confirmed” to be the godparents, so we’ll have to see how this plays out. Some Royals might think that Harry and Meghan are slumming it by having the worst Batman and a lawyer be the godparents, but I don’t think so. Later in life, their baby could always hit up Godfather George for a job at his tequila company, and getting day drunk on tequila sounds way more fun than getting day buzzed at the palace on whatever drops of gin were left by The Queen.
