Betters Predict Princess Charlotte's Godparents Will Be the Last Two People We Expected

Now that Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana is here, and details about Kate Middleton's birth are almost done trickling in, the collective conversation has moved on to "Who will be Charlotte's godparents?" As with Prince George, the Duke and Duchess will choose several people to be their daughter's godparents ... and as with Prince George, everyone has an opinion of who those people should be. 


Bookies are betting that the most likely candidate for Charlotte's godparent is Princess Beatrice, followed closely by Princess Eugenie, both who are William's cousins. Next up, people have their money on Princess Anne's son Peter Phillips and Prince William's close friend Hugh van Cutsem. And rounding out the potential candidates are Prince Harry and Kate's siblings, Pippa and James Middleton.

Typically, royal godparents are, well, royal, but William and Kate broke the tradition with Prince George by choosing close friends and family. (The little prince's godparents are Oliver Baker, Emilia Jardine-Paterson, Earl Grosvenor,Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton, Julia Samuel, William van Cutsem, and Zara Tindall.) Odds are, they'll do so again. 

In fact, the Duke and Duchess wanted to keep things so low key last time around that many members of the royal family, such as Prince Andrew, Prince Edward, and Princess Anne, weren't even invited to the royal christening. Chances are, Charlotte's christening will be even more casual this go round. 

Personally, I'd love to see Prince Harry, Pippa, and James be among the little princess' godparents, but clearly there's a lot more that goes into the decision than merely being an aunt or an uncle. And, hey, if Princess Beatrice is chosen, at least we know she'll wear a really great fascinator to the ceremony!

Who do you think will be Prince George's godparents?
