Prince Harry and Meghan Markle recently announced they were expecting and were met with congratulations from people around the world.

The royals are over the moon for this next step in their relationship together and cannot wait to meet their little boy or girl.

Now, one of the next decisions the two will have to make is who their child’s godparents will be.

Royal tradition rules out honouring siblings with this title, but there are quite a few family friends in the running.

Here are the current godparent contenders:

Serena Williams

Serena’s close friendship with Meghan is often talked about. Being a mum herself as well, the tennis star is an obvious candidate for the godparent role.

Jessica and Ben Mulroney

As one of Meghan’s best friends and her personal stylist, Jessica is a clear contender. Her and her husband’s children were in Harry and Meghan’s wedding party as well.

The Duchess of Sussex was the maid of honour at her wedding. Lindsay is one of Meghan’s closest friends from university and the two have remained close ever since.

Zoe and Jake Warren

Jake was one of Princess Diana’s godsons and both him and his wife have grown up with Harry. Their daughter Zalie was also a bridesmaid in the royals’ wedding.

Misha Nonoo

Not only is the designer one of Meghan’s favourite travel companions, but her ex Alexander went to school with Harry as well. There are no more double dates but the four remain close.

Tom Inskip and Lara Hughes-Young

Since their days at Eton, Tom has been buddies with Harry ever since. Both Meghan and Harry attended his wedding in Jamaica.

Benita and Darren Litt

The couple’s two daughters were in the duke and duchess’ wedding party and Meghan is the girls' godmother. So it would only suit if the royals reciprocated the gesture.

However, we will just have to wait and see who Meghan and Harry choose as godmother and godfather for their baby.



Despite the Duke of Sussex's ample experience in giving public speeches, it seems that he still gets nervous in front of crowds.

In preparation of the Invictus Games 2018, Prince Harry wanted to practice his speech in front of the person whose opinion he values most – his wife.

Meghan Markle walked over to the rows of empty chairs set up for the big event and took a seat in the front row.

Her hubby took the stage with microphone in hand and began his practised words.

Outside the Sydney Opera House, Harry looked at his partner’s reassuring smile and found the words he knew would be spoken in front of a full house that evening.

With the support of his duchess, he knew he could do anything.

The royals’ official Instagram shared the intimate moment with the caption: “Almost time for The Invictus Games 2018.

“The Duke of Sussex makes his final speech preparations ahead of tonight’s Opening Ceremony.”

Many fans have already commented on how sweet Harry and Meghan’s relationship is.

“What a great picture. Duke and Duchess are showing their commitment to each other and to the causes close to their hearts,” said one comment.

“They truly are an amazing team”, said another.

Prince Harry started The Invictus Games four years ago after seeing the positive impact sport could have on the recovery and rehabilitation of wounded, injured and ill servicemen and women.

Wounded warriors compete from all over the world in sports like golf and wheelchair tennis.

It is sweet to see the couple supporting each other in all that they do, and we are seriously jealous of how perfect they are for each other!



Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have made their first public appearance since announcing their joyous pregnancy news yesterday.

The couple are currently on tour in Australia. Meghan and Harry greeted the public in Sydney on their first day of royal engagements.

The Duke is Sussex seemed quite moved when he delivered a speech during their first day in Sydney.

Harry gushed about the public’s reaction to their pregnancy announcement.

“We genuinely couldn't think of a better place to announce the upcoming…err…baby," he shared.

The couple were welcomed by the Governor-General Sir Peter Cosgrove and Lady Cosgrove at Admiralty House, Kirribilli to mark the beginning of their royal visit.

They even gave Meghan a toy koala. The Duchess told them that she would put it ‘in the nursery.’

Kensington Palace confirmed that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be welcoming their first child into the world in the spring of 2019.

The lovebirds told the royal family their huge news at Princess Eugenie’s wedding on Friday, October 12.

Queen Elizabeth, the Duke of Edinburgh, Prince of Wales, Duchess of Cornwall and Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are said to be “delighted for the couple”.

The parents-to-be extended their gratitude to the public in a statement through Kensington Palace: “Their Royal Highnesses have appreciated all of the support they have received from people around the world since their wedding in May and are delighted to be able to share this happy news with the public,” they shared.



Mere hours have passed since the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced they were expecting their first child together, and the bookies already have a list of the top names for their baby.

The couple has yet to confirm whether they are expecting a boy or girl, and more than likely won’t because it doesn’t follow royal tradition, but that hasn’t stopped the betting houses from conjuring up a list of potential names for the parents-to-be.

Harry and Meghan will be welcoming their bundle of joy into the world in the Spring of 2019, but the couple won’t have to be as strict when it comes to their newborn’s title.

Alexander, Arthur and Philip are amongst the top names for a baby boy, which come as no surprise. The royals tend to pick from a list of traditional, family names.

Other potential options include Nicholas at 10/1, Alfred at 6/1, James at 50/1 and Thomas, after Meghan’s dad.

If the Duke and Duchess welcome a baby girl in the new year the odds of naming her Alice and Victoria are exceptionally high.

Obviously, many people hope Harry will honour his late-mum Princes Diana by naming their daughter after her. Isabella is currently at 6/1, followed by 12/1 Eleanor and Rachel at 25/1.

Who knows what name Harry and Meghan will choose for their first child, but there’s no doubt it’ll be traditional.

We do hope they honour Diana in some way. There’s no doubt his mum would be overjoyed to hear her son’s incredible news on this special day.



Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tied the knot in the most magical May wedding this year. Their love story is like something out of a fairytale and we couldn't be more jealous. 

They may be one of the most-loved celebrity couples of the 21st century, but like all of us, former Suits actress Meghan couldn’t help but worry after her first date with the prince.

A close friend of the royal couple set them up on a blind date back in 2016. 

Meghan only had one question to ask about her now-husband when her friend recommended going on a date with him.


A post shared by Chris Jackson (@chrisjacksongetty) on

All she asked was “Is he nice and kind?”

The couple enjoyed an “intoxicating first date” but Meghan was extremely worried about one thing in particular.

According to royal biographer Andrew Morton, the Duchess of Sussex was afraid she came across as too eager after she agreed to a second date with the prince.

"As she relived that fateful evening in her mind, she perhaps wondered if she had been too eager to accept his invitation to meet again the following day.”

We’re sure the Duke of Sussex was thrilled when Meghan agreed to a second date: "They were mesmerised by one another, Harry enthralled by her beauty, sophistication and perceptiveness.”

Now if only we could find a fella like Prince Harry.


Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been one of the most talked about couples of the year. The royals have been on the cover of every newspaper and magazine across the globe. Their wedding was watched by billions and their public engagements draw thousands to the streets.

This summer, the stunning duo took some time away from the spotlight, along with the rest of the royal family. During the month of August, Queen Elizabeth and co. tend to take a step back from their duties.

We must admit we've missed seeing snaps of the couple on our Instagram feeds, but fear not, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex made their welcome return to the spotlight at a charity event.

Harry and Meghan attended a gala performance of Hamilton last night. The special event was held to raise awareness and funds for children’s charity Sentebale.

Prince Harry established the children’s charity alongside Prince Seeiso. The charity gives hope and works with children and young people affected by HIV in southern Africa.

After the show, Prince Harry took to the stage with the cast of Hamilton and the creator of the musical Lin-Manuel Miranda.

The Duke delivered an impassioned speech about how the money they raised will help ill children, but before doing so he broke into song.

The audience cheered as Harry briefly sang  a snippet of You’ll Be Back from the musical.

It’s evident that the prince is a huge fan of the show. Meghan even told one of the cast members that Harry never stops singing the songs from the popular musical.

Maybe the Duke of Sussex could have a future in musical theatre? Who knows.



Heartthrob Tom Hardy recently spilled about him and Prince Harry's total bromance, and it is actually adorable.

Tom and Harry have been seen in public before on several occasions and have also been known to do some charity work together.

The English actor has been an acting ambassador for The Prince’s Trust, which helps disadvantaged people aged 14 to 30 overcome obstacles and transition into work, education, or training.

His passion may be based on his own troublesome past, as Tom is no stranger to surviving life’s darkest depths as a youth.

He told The Daily Mail that he used to struggle with drug addiction himself and has now been sober for over a decade.

“The only thing that saved me through that dark time was acting,” he divulged.

Everyone needs a purpose or a passion to push them through the ups and downs that this world throws their way.

Tom and Harry understand that without this focus, it can be easy to lose sight of our goals and let the hard parts of life drown out our potential.

Despite the obstacles thrown his way, Tom has survived into fame and success through his love of acting. “I found that I was good at it, I wanted to make the effort to invest time and effort into doing it.

“These days, I’m lucky enough to do it for a living; and I love it and I learn from it every day.”

It is this same driven outlook that he hopes to share with troubled youth in the Prince’s charity.

Perhaps it is this shared interest for disadvantaged youths that Prince Harry and Tom share.

In May, Tom made sure to attend the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's royal wedding with his wife Charlotte Riley.

At the time, the actor had been filming Fonzo, in which he plays the iconic role of Al Capone.

And after six weeks of 19 hour days, he flew home the morning of the Prince’s wedding day.

He would never miss the most important day of his friend's life. #bros4life

When Esquire asked Tom about his relationship with Harry, all he would say is that it was ‘deeply private’ and ‘Harry is a f****** legend.’

Just last year, Tom co-sponsored a campaign with The Prince’s Trust called "Youth Can Do It," which helps build young people's self-esteem.

The pair has also been spotted attending the Audi Polo Challenge cup in London in 2016 and filming a cameo for Star Wars: The Last Jedi film.

The scene was later cut because Harry and his brother, Prince William, were too tall in comparison with the other stormtroopers.

It seems the pair has a bit of bromance brewing, whether this is based on the same charitable passions or a shared Star Wars fandom is hard to tell.

I guess we will just have to wait and see what the compassionate, bromantic duo do next.
