Counting down the days until the arrival of their third child in April, Prince William and Kate Middleton have reportedly already chosen their new baby's godparents! A trusted palace source recently told Woman's Day that Prince Harry's fiancée Meghan Markle was their top pick! In fact, our palace source spilled that Kate, 36, is adamant that she wants her future sister-in-law to play the important role of godmother — and we couldn't be more excited!

"They've already formed a strong sisterly bond, and it's Kate's way of showing how close they've become," the insider remarked. William and Kate take the responsibility of picking godparents very seriously — after all, they're entrusting their little ones into their care. 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, Princess 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" and that pregnant Kate will do all she can to help Meghan join the royal family. We're sure that the godmother title will surely do the trick in including the starlet into the family! Congrats Meghan — can't wait to see who else will be joining the godmother committee for the new baby royal!
