Only 15 generations?

As for godparents, another idea. This might be a long shot, but I would like to see Duchess of Cornwall be included.

I keep thinking of the Cartier watch that Meghan brought for herself that she had hoped that she would have a daughter to give it to some day. The inscription on this watch has "from MM to MM". If we think about it, the chid's surname will be M for Montbatten-Windsor. So I think that a first name will begin with M - maybe Mary?

That would be cute. I like that it was a gift from herself to herself as a celebration of her 3rd season on Suits.

I would imagine Mark Dyson, Charlie van Straubenzee, Jessica Mulroney and Markus Anderson might be possible godparents. Also perhaps Benita Litt (a childhood friend of Meghan's whose daughter was a bridesmaid/flower girl in the royal wedding).
She is also the godmother to Benita’s daughters. I predict Lindsay, Heather, and Benita. I don’t think Jessica will be a godmother to this one.

They could decide to have more and include all four of them. And it doesn't even have to be equal in numbers of men and women. But I don't think Jessica will be left off. The Mulroneys have been trusted from very early on and have stood by Meghan despite harassment.

Maybe you are right. People keep saying Serena and I really really really don’t think for the first one. Maybe later. I think Charlie, Benita, Heather, Lindsay and Tom are shoe-ins. I don’t know much about Harry’s friend group to guess any more though.

As Serena is a Jehovah’s Witness she may not be able to serve as a godparent for a child baptized into the Anglican Church.

Btw, what kind of rules, if any, does the Anglican Church have on who can be godparents?

The "rules" regarding godparents have relaxed over the years - the main requirements are:

- godparents must be baptised, with a preference to those confirmed (though not necessary)
- godparents don't have to be of the Church of England, but can be any of the Christian denominations (Catholic, Methodist, Baptist, URC, Orthodox, etc)
- a minimum of three godparents are required, two of the same sex as the child and one of the opposite sex

The Church of England may say no to Serena being made godmother because she is a Jehovah's Witness (though JW falls under the 'Christianity' umbrella), while it is likely IMO that she herself would decline the role because as a JW, they do not believe in baptism until the individual in question is old enough to understand the significance of baptism.

I think the baby will be a boy. It would be lovely if their first name was Philip.

Also, do you think KP will release the month the baby may be born? After the initial announcement; KP later revealed Cathrine was expected to give birth April of 2018 when she had Louis.

For a daughter: Joan
There have been previous princesses named Joan. Joan of England was the daughter of King Edward II of England. She became the wife of King David II of Scotland.

I personally dont think they will as I think it will be a very late March to very early April baby so the due date month could be up in the air.

Serena could be a option, since she is not a strict JW, she plays in competitions and attended weddings in churches that do not belong to her religion. A regular JW would not do that I believe. So if she was asked to be a godparent I doubt she would decline.

Looking at Meghan lately, I’m beginning to think it’s a boy.

Just for fun, apparently it’s not just people at TRF think it’ll be twins. Bookies have suspended bets on twins after a flurry for bets came in for it. Just want to point out, it doesn’t mean there is any rumors or news regarding this. Betting for McQueen as Meghan’s wedding dress designer also had to be suspended for the same reason at one point. But it is certainly fun to watch this.

I just don't understand how people think that it's twins when it's already been announced that they are expecting a baby as in ONE!

I doubt they would mention they are having twins. That would have sent the media into overdrive. I believe if they are having twins they would announce it prior to the birth.

I don’t think they are having twins or at least they wouldn’t say a baby and this lie in the original announce (now that I’ve said this, watch them announce it is twins ).
