Counting down the days until the arrival of their third child in April, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have reportedly already chosen their godparents.

And a trusted palace source has claimed that Prince Harry’s fiance Meghan Markle has made the list!

In fact, the source spilled that Kate, 36, was adamant she wants her future sister-in-law to play the important role of godmother.

“They’ve already formed a strong sisterly bond, and it’s Kate’s way of showing how close they’ve become,” they remarked.

And soon they will be five.

Prince George has seven godparents.

They are Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton, William van Cutsem, Julia Samuel, Emilia Jardine-Paterson, Zara Tindall, Earl Grosvenor and Oliver Baker.

Meanwhile Charlotte has five godparents: Sophie Carter, Laura Fellowes, Adam Middleton, James Meade and Thomas van Straubenzee.

This latest touching gesture comes off the back of reports Meghan and Kate share a “very special friendship.”
