Sure and Kate gave birth on July 1st to a daughter that William named Diana and the RF forced W&K to give up the baby. Or is it that George is really a girl born on July 1st and his real name is Diana.

Kate had tea with Guy Pelly and his wife. Rumor has it that he'll be named godparent to the new #RoyalBaby2

Is this the same Guy Pelly who filmed racy commercials for his club in front of Buckingham Palace?

I believe so. Its also the same Guy Pelly that recently had his wedding in Tennessee if I remember right. He's been close friends with William and Harry for years although I doubt anyone would call him a friend with a reserved nature.

I've no doubt that William and Harry have enjoyed Pelly's friendship. But they have plenty of (more reserved) friends to choose from when it comes to a godparent relationship! In other words- don't get a new tie for the occasion just yet, Guy.

I believe Guy also has at least one drunk driving conviction. I think stories about his being a godparent are just meant to rile up people -but hey, you never know.

As recent history as shown us Windsor men have a habit of sticking with friends with reputations and not seeming to care what people think. I would not be suprized if Pelly is a godparent to this or maybe the next.

Ah the recklessness of being young and adventurous and sometimes down right stupid. To those that know him well, he might have some very redeeming qualities they admire and would like their children to be able to emulate.

He has 3 drunk driving convictions. The last one got him a 2.5 year ban from driving. So many other people that they can choose from.

I get what you're saying. I think one can compare Pelly to Crown Princess Mary of Denmark's open-mouthed friend, Amber Petty. Petty was her bridesmaid, they see each other privately, but she wasn't chosen as godmother to either of the four children. Don't know if Pelly's, eh, nature will prevent William and Catherine from choosing him as godfather though.

For a man in Will's position to chose a guy with three drunk driving convictions to be a godparent, they'd have to be very redeeming qualities.

At least on the site I looked at, Sam Waley-Cohen is now even money to be a grandparent.

Guy is off at 6:1. Bea is at 1:4, Hugh Van Cutsem 1:3 and Peter Phillips 5:6. The house always wins, you know.

I'm just imagining how much they have made already on due dates that have passed.

I looked at To Be A Godparent - Royal Specials Betting

I had never noticed this emoticon - but it sure fits how we feel about this baby being born:

Sophie is also hoping the baby is a little girl..

Paris Match

Quote:
She said the industry was surely “keeping its proverbial fingers crossed that it’s a girl,” and predicts “a mass explosion of pink Champagne if it happens. A baby princess would be a welcome addition to the fashion coffers. Mind you, Prince George isn’t doing too badly, either,” she said during the reception. Sophie also stressed that she did not have the inside track on the baby’s sex.

So..Are white tights and Mary Janes and dressing conservatively going to be all rage if a baby princess is born? Because you know that is the style she will almost certainly sport. And that would not be a thing at all :)

Other royal princesses wear white tights and Mary Janes currently so it wouldn't be a shock. Princess Estelle and Princess Leonore wear them a lot (today for example Leonore is wearing white tights and silver Mary-Janes).

The British royals do dress their children much more conservatively and some would say "old fashioned" but it's not necessarily a bad thing. (Lady Louise is different as I still don't think she should be wearing white tights and Mary Janes at 11...but that's another story altogether.)
