At least until the birth of her third child Duchess Catherine are still a couple
months, she’s already seriously worried about the preparations for this event. According to
available information, currently the Duchess and her husband are busy choosing
godparents for the baby, which, as is declared by the official representative
Kensington Palace, should be born in April. As it became known,
Catherine and William have already decided with the selection of at least one godparent. Her
will Meghan Markle, the bride of Prince Harry. This candidate insisted
Duchess Catherine, who sympathizes with Megan and have already managed to make friends with her.

Incidentally, the choice of godparents for
members of the Royal family is serious business. Because, among other things, young
princes and princesses are supposed to have not a few, as is usually the case in simple
mortals, and much more. For example, the oldest child of the Duchess — Prince
George, who went through the ceremony in 2012, there were seven godparents.
And the younger sister of the Prince — Charlotte — “only” five.

In fact, according to tradition, instituted by the ancestors of Prince William, in the
“command” godparents” would certainly include members of the Royal
family. However, the Prince and his wife allowed themselves, as they did not already
time to deviate from the unwritten rules. As a result, among the godparents of George was
only one royalty – Zara Tindall, daughter of Princess Anna and
granddaughter of the Queen. Moreover, “team” Charlotte there were no immediate
relative of Elizabeth. However, among the godparents of Princess turned out to be
niece of Diana, ex — wife of Prince Charles, William’s dad.

Recall: the rite of baptism offspring of the Royal family involves not
only the presence of a solid group of godparents, but also the use of two indispensable
attributes. We are talking about the famous baptismal shirt, an exact copy of the one that
was once made by order of Queen Victoria, and the silver Lily font,
made by craftsmen in 1840.
