Godparents for Autumn and Peter's Baby

Seeing as we have a thread guessing the name, can we guess godparents as well?

If moderators wish to merge this with the name thread, please do so.

IMO the contenders include

1) Zara
2) One of Beatrice or Eugenie
3) One of Margaret's children?
4) Possibly Harry
5) Others from Autumn's side of the family

Autumn has a brother Kevin.
Peter also has two half sisters Felicity and Stephanie.

I also think William is a serious contender because he is supposedly very close to his cousin. They became close after Diana's death.

My guess would be William as godfather, since he is the future king and Zara. Others will likely be friends and maybe someone in her family. If the baby is a boy, I would imagine William will be in among his names.

These guessing games are always fun.

Probably?

1) Peter's best friend
2) Autumn's best friend
3) Kelly cousin
4) royal cousin
5) Phillips family relation

Why William just for the reason he's going to be King?

From what I understand, which of course could be wrong, Peter is closer to William than Harry, so if its one of the Wales boys it would be William. I don't think they'd just pick someone just for prestige, after all Peter's pretty proud of his not having a title and being regular.

Peter was there for William a lot after Diana passed away, which I have posted twice I think in this thread.
So no one is going to be picked for their title.

I'd say Zara for sure and either one of Autumn's brothers Kevin or her twin Chris. I think they're half siblings are maybe a bit too young. I think Autumn half brother and sister are 15 and 13 and Peter's half sister Stephanie is only 13 as well. For sure a close friend, Peter has a lot of friends from his school days that were at his wedding that he might want to honour with being a godparent to his firstborn. As for William I'm not sure I do think that one of his cousins will be a godparent maybe either Eugenie or Beatrice. I don't think either have godchildren.

Felicity is 25.

They probably never see Felicity. Doesn't she live in Australia? They may not even acknowledge her as their sister seeing that she doesn't seem to have a relationship with them as Stephanie does.

How many godparents do they usually have for a Church of England baptism?
I think for sure Zara and someone from Autumn's side of the family.

Generally what I have noticed in the current royal family is that most people seem to have five or six godparents, so that's how many I would assume that the new baby would have.

I actually think they were close before Diana died which made it possible for William and Harry to seek out Peter in that week. William always looked up to Peter as the older brother he didn't have.

However, remember William didn't go to their wedding (yes I know he had another commitment elsewhere - Jecca's brother's wedding) so I wonder just how close they are now.

I would like to see them have one of the York girls as the 'royal' godparent reflecting the fact that the child has royal connections but is also some way from the throne.

I would imagine it would be Zara and Eugenie (she did do a reading at the wedding) and one of Autumn's brothers and her friend Jackie.

Call me crazy but if my cousin and a friend's brother (or a friend) are getting married the same day, I am going to go my cousin's wedding. But's just me and off topic.

I Think Zara will be a Godmother

Well, the Prince of Wales is Peter's godfather and I imagine at his age HE won't be picked! Although it's certainly not unheard of in royal circles--King George V was among several of his grandchildren's godparents as was Queen Mary and Queen Victoria. I think as William will be head of the Royal Family in this child's "day" it would be appropriate.

Do they stick to the old rules of so many god parents of the same sex as the child and fewer of the opposite sex?

I think we'll see William and Zara for sure. Possibly one of the York girls. But I can't see them going hog wild with godparents either. And would they sell the publishing rights to the baptism like they did with their wedding?
