Kate Middleton Asked Meghan Markle To Be The Godmother Of Her Third Child, But The Queen Is Not Pleased With This Decision

Date February 5, 2018 13:57

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expecting a baby number 3, which can set up another “royal baby” craze. And now when Kate’s sickness is far behind her, many mums-to-be can get inspired by the Duchess’ maternity wardrobe.

The new baby is expecting to appear in April 2018, which should happen before Prince Harry and Meghan Markle go to the altar. The royal wedding was announced to be in Windsor, on May 19.

This is a great honor because when the baby arrives, Meghan won’t be officially a part of the royal family just yet. A palace insider states:

Kate and Meghan get along so well already and Kate wants her to know how loved she is by the family. It's such a big honor - and Harry was overjoyed by the gesture too!

There’s one person, who’s not very happy with Kate’s decision. The Queen, 91, is not very pleased with Kate and Will’s choice, calling it “hasty” because Harry and Meghan aren’t married yet. Kate is reported to be confused by the Queen’s disapproval, saying that her decision is “entirely sentimental.”

At this point, it’s not a big surprise that there’s another exception made for Meghan to make her feel like a part of the family. But it would be hard to find a better person to fill in the shoes of the godmother. It will be a good practice for the royal couple, especially considering that Prince Harry mentioned he and Meghan want to start a family “soon.”

Although the gender of Kate and Williams’s third baby hasn’t been announced yet, it will be especially notable this time because he or she will be the younger sibling of Princess Charlotte.

Years ago, if it would have been a boy, he would have usurped Charlotte’s place in the line of succession to the throne, but not anymore. A new law was introduced in 2011 giving equal rights to any daughter of a future British monarch. So the new baby could be the first to test it.
