Speaking of which, I was at the grocery store this evening and saw big headlines that its twins and they are identical. It happened to be right in my line of sight as I put my stuff on the belt so I couldn't miss it. However, just to show how much I believe it, I couldn't tell you which rag it was on.

If Prince Harry and Meghan have a daughter, Georgina could be a middle name. The name originated in Scotland in the 18th century.

Today I saw that OKAY magazine declared that Prince Henry and Meghan have chosen George and Amal Clooney to be the godparents of the baby.
I do not know the religion of either George or Amal. But does not one of them have to be Anglican in order to be a godparent?

Okay is a gossip magazine so I would take what they say with a very firm grain of salt. I highly doubt that they will be chosen to be godparents, as I think the Sussexes would choose closer relatives and friends over the Clooneys first.
But to answer your question; George Clooney was raised as a strict Catholic however recently has identified as more agnostic. Amal comes from a Muslim family. All godparents have to have been welcomed into the church in some way, either via adult baptism, christening or confirmation/communion.

But I think the question is do they all have to be Anglican? Considering it's about 1% of UK population, that's some serious slim picking.

The Church of England includes about 26 million people. And then there is the church of Scotland that is a separate identity within the Anglican community. So, it's at least 40% of the population not 1%.

And even if it were a small numbdr, godparents to a christening is a church issue not a state issue. So, the church can of course put the (very sensible) requirement that those with an official role in their church adhere to their rules, such as the requirement to be a baptized christian or, more specific, be a confirmed member of an Anglican church.

Hmm, that was solely based on some of the posts that have been posted on here before, so that might be off. But regardless, it'd be nice if they have more lenient rules given that most of Meghan's close friends aren't from England.

I don’t understand why the Anglican church should break the rules on godparents, especially when this baby’s grandfather will one day be Defender of the Faith. Meghan chose to join the church, I’m sure she understands the rules.

That's not usually the way churches work, though. If you are a member of a church, the rules apply to you, even if you have friends who are not members. If that is indeed what the rules are in the Anglican Church, I think it would be appalling if those rules were bent to accommodate someone just because they were royal and wanted to choose a godparent for their child who didn't meet the criteria.

After some quick research, it seems that it’d hardly be the first non Anglican godparents in BRF. While we don’t know the religion of each private individual that’s been named as godparent to royal children, there has been a history of foreign royals as godparents. It certainly wasn’t required of them to convert. King Haakon of Norway is one of the future Defender of Faith (Charles)’s godparents.

So Meghan’s friends that are non Anglican being named as godparents shouldn’t be a problem at all.

ETA: I just remembered based on recent news that Princess Theodora of Greece and Denmark is a goddaughter to HMQ, so it does seem the rules on who can be godparents in each church might not be as strict as only those that belong to that particular branch of Christianity.

I am the godmother to two children who were Baptized in the COE. I am not Anglican, but at least at my friend's parish, you only had to be baptized in the Christian faith generally, to serve as a godparent, no matter the denomination.

I can imagine that the Sussex baby will be baptized possibly by a high level member of the clergy in the COE so they may be less permissive, but I think the "christian baptism" requirement stands overall.

I think one person that we can rule out at this point is Jessica Mulroney, unless she has converted since her marriage. Although there is that special person role.

Why would she be ruled out? I don't know much about her personal background...

She’s Jewish. Or at least at the time of her wedding, she was. The Mulroneys has a joint faiths ceremony at St. Patrick’s Basilica. Ben is Catholic.
