Kate may do her own thing though. When George goes out on outings with his mother he dresses as most little boys do. Yes, there was the photo of him wearing a rather conservative dark blue jumper and shorts, but that does seem to have been an exception.

Now that the baby will be born in May, maybe it will be baptized in August.

Considering that we see pictures of George during informal outings, it's a given that he'd be dressed comfortably, rather than formally. I think that on formal occasions George (and his sibling) will be dressed accordingly, and based on what George wore on his trip to Australia last spring, it will be in a classic/conservative style. Personally, I think it's great that Catherine tends to stay away from more modern looks for formal appearances. It's more appropriate to look elegant, and on a conservative side. In any case, it will be interesting to see what both of these children will be like as they grow.

The dressing conservatively seems more apparent in little royal girls for some reason. Go figure.

Ok. The sex is known and there's a brand new Princess of the UK. We still have guessing to do on the godparents.

I just had to post this here because it is definitely the Daily Mail's "laugh it up cuz its too far out of the box to be believed item of the day" report in the form of Sebastian Shakespeare. He is putting the buzz out that is just may be possible that Michelle and Barack Obama will be asked to be godparents for Princess Charlotte. Whatever he's been smoking, I want some.

Scroll down past the story of the Earl of Dunham and his woe-be-gone pile and you'll se the rumor.

I would like to see Laura Lopes as a godmother. It would be a lovely nod to Camilla. She must be close to William and Catherine, her daughter was on their wedding as a flower girl.

Surely there are other females in the Cambridge circle whom William might wish to give a nod to rather than the woman whom his mother hated and resented.

That's silly and absurd and not how the family dynamic works. Technically speaking, Laura Lopes is William's step sister. No reason she couldn't be asked if that's what they want.

I wonder if maybe Rebecca Deacon could be in the running.

Of course, they can ask anyone they want. I'm assuming that they are closer to some others who may have no unpleasant associations.

If that was the case, I doubt Eliza Lopes would have been in their wedding. I think they have no unpleasant associations at all with that part of their family, and probably would frown on it being insinuated otherwise

What about a nod to the woman his father loves and makes him happy?

The Duke of Cambridge doesn't strikes me as someone who'd keep resentments for almost 20 years. People who do that are pitiful.

Of course not. But he might very well consider how his late mother would have felt about it.

Yes! How dare William honour a woman who has made his father very happy and very likely plays a positive role in William's life now. Best to continue punishing her for something that happened 30 years ago.

I suspect they might choose Tiggy Legge-Bourke as one of Charlotte's godparents. I'd also love if they picked Lady Sarah Chatto but I reckon that might be unlikely (although it would be so neat if they chose both her and Prince Harry – who himself is Sarah's godson).

There's no reason for him to live according to what his late mother would have felt about anything.

He has shown that he still loves his mother and honours her memory, but keep Diana's resentments alive after 20 years would be ridiculous and quite pathetic.

Even Diana herself seemed to be reconciling with Charles before her death they seemed to be at a good place. I think in the heat of things she may well have hated Camilla but I think by the time she died she was past that. She was free of it. I've not seen anything indicating otherwise.

Can't imagine there would be a reason to not involve Camilla's family as godparents etc.

Exactly. He has a life of his own to live.
