Yeah, the Ulsters or Davina or Rose.... maybe them. But I think Edward is closer to James Ogilvy and Helen Taylor, so I would guess them first, then the Gloucesters second.

Another one I consider as a good possibility is Crown Prince Willem-Alexander because, I think he is a good friend of Edward and Sophie, isn't he?

Prince Joachim and his future wife, Marie
Serena Linley
The Earl of Ulster (his father was godfather to Edward)
James Ogilvy
Gabriella or Frederick Windsor

That's what I have so far in the way of selection

A poll was added to this thread, so now you can vote for those, you think are likely to be named Godparents for the little Viscount.

You can make multiply choices, or if the person you think has chances to become a Godparent is missing, you can vote for the "Other" choice and specify who you meant.

Another good idea.

I can't imagine them choosing any foreign royalty, and I can imagine the ceremony being a low-key event.

So...my predictions are David or Zara Rhys-Jones, Lady Helen Taylor, and close friends of the couple.

Because the baby is a boy and Edward's heir, I think they will choose higher profile godparents than they did for Louise. I don't necessarily agree with it but that's my suspicion.

I wouldn't be surprised if they chose Prince William - or maybe even Harry - as one. Perhaps Zara Phillips. Def. someone in Sophie's family. And probably a friend of the couple. But as for members of the RF, I'd say William, Harry, Zara. Maybe Andrew.

Andrew Lloyd-Webber would be an awesome godfather choice!

Since we now know little James' name, I have changed my prediction. Instead of Lady Helen, I predict James Ogilvy or Alexander Ulster.

Who are the godparents to their daughter? I would think that would give a good indication of how they choose...

Lady Louise's godparents are: Lady Sarah Chatto, Lady Alexandra Etherington, Francesca Schwarzenbach, Lord Ivar Mountbatten, and Rupert Elliot.

So three of them are relatives, and two are friends of the parents; and there are three godmothers and two godfathers

Jeez...I'm used to their only being two in the US. Is that normal in Europe or just a royalty thing?

Personal I would not expect Camilla or any of the younger royals. Judging from Louise's choice this will be totally a private choice of close friends.

I certainly expect David Rhys-Jones and maybe Princess Anne.
Lord or Lady Dalmeny (close friends)
Lady Ivar Mountbatten (Ivar is Edward's best friend and Edward and Sophie are godparents of all their kids)
Abel or Belinda Hadden (friends)
Sarah Warburton (former Personal secretary)
Sophie's cousin don't know her name?
Viscount Fitz-Harris (current personal secretary)

Of all the foreign royals Edward and Sophie are only close to Prince Joachim, prince Frederick, Prince Williem - Alexander, Princess Martha-Louise and Prince Haakon. So it would probably be among them if they decide to go this route. But I doubt that.

^ Maybe they would choose a royal godparent(s) for James because he is the heir, and heirs frequently have more ranking godparents than the others. I recall reading that Diana Spencer's parents chose second-rate godparents for her, but for Charles Spencer, The Queen. Then again, the Spencers were always much more rank-and-status conscious than Edward or Sophie, neither of whom seem to put much stock in those concerns. So who knows.... we wait and see, I suppose.

They may not put much thought into rank since neither of their kids is getting the HRH treatment, although they do have titles unlike Anne's children. So there may be a slight difference.

Titles flow from the father. Mark Phillips had no title so there was nothing to pass to Peter and Zara. Edward was born with a title, and acquired others later.

i think that either beatrice or eugenie will be godparents because they seem really close to the countess
my guess is that they will have one friend of the earl, one friend of the countess, someone who works with them, one senior royal and one distant relative

I think the Wessexes are going to choose from several branches of the family.Camilla,one of the Phillipses,one of the Chattos or Linleys,William,Anne or her husband, one of the Yorks,and one of Sophie's family.

Are any of Edward's nieces of nephews His godchildren? Perhaps he'd go that route: his child will have a godparent that he himself is godparent of. Sort of like the way Prince Charles is w members of the Greek RF.

My bank is on the following people:
1) At least 1 senior Royal (Anne, Camilla, Peter or Zara)
2) A Greek Royal (Philip's relatives)
3) A member of the extended Royal Family (Chattos, Linleys or Lascelleses)
4) A member of Sophie's family
5) A personal friend of both Edward & Shophie

If the are going to choose a foreign Royal (apart from the Greek ones), it is going to be Prince Joachim.
