Who will be the lucky ones, allowed to lean over the royal crib of Lilibet Diana Mountbassen-Windsor? After the birth of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s daughter, rumors are starting to fly about the names of the child’s future godmothers.

By her first name, she joins a prestigious line of women. The choice of godmothers could reinforce the aura of prestige that already surrounds the cradle of Lilibet, the daughter of Meghan Markle and Harry, born this Friday June 4. According to people close to the couple, the personalities that the Sussexes could call upon to guide their daughter by their side compete for prestige: from Oprah Winfrey to Beyoncé.

Our source understands that Oprah Winfrey leads the list: “If one of the godparents is Oprah – and I’m not saying it is – it’s understandable that they might want to keep it to themselves, since the mere fact that Oprah did their interview was controversial enough in itself.” An assumption that is also relayed by a close to Meghan Markle, who confided to Heat World in early May that the “coveted role” of godmother “was reserved” for Oprah, since the shock interview in March. For the Duchess of Sussex, the presenter would be the ideal godmother for Lilibet. “She wants her daughter to be surrounded by strong female role models, and Oprah fits the description perfectly. She has been a real support to her and Harry since they arrived in California, and Meghan knows she can rely on her, no matter what the circumstances,” the same source details.

And of strong women, Lilibet Diana will not lack. Among the other personalities who could compete for the title of royal godmother to Oprah, all are certainly. Close to Oprah Winfrey as well as the Sussexes, there are whispers that journalist Gayle King could also be appointed. The journalist has become close to the couple, and does not fail to regularly recall the tensions between the husband of Meghan Markle and his prince brother, especially during the funeral of Prince Philip. So much so that some go so far as to call her “spokesperson” of the couple.

Accustomed to the competition, a competitor of size to these two iconic journalists could be Serena Williams. The tennis player has had a friendship with Meghan Markle for several years, and attended the couple’s wedding in 2018. Meghan Markle has repeatedly supported the player on the courts, and she has returned the favor, strongly defending Meghan during the storm. “I’m so proud of you, that you’re so brave. I know it’s never easy. You are both strong, you and Harry,” she had written on social media.

Will the list of godmothers be known this time?

The Sussexes had been able to find support in the singer Beyoncé. A mark of friendship that they could return, placing their daughter under the patronage of the ex-Destiny’s Child, who met the royal couple in London in 2019, during the premiere of the musical The Lion King. The Sussexes could also use the birth of Lilibet to pay tribute to a longtime friend of the former Suits actress. Katharine McPhee, also an actress and former American Idol contestant, was supposed to be the godmother of the Sussexes’ first-born, but was not chosen, even though royal tradition allows children to have at least six godparents. To reach this number, they could ask the Clooney couple to close the circle around the cradle of Lilibet. Will George Clooney have changed his mind about his ability to be a good godfather? The actor had joked publicly that the fact of being born on the same day as Archie, but that this common birth date did not make him “a good godfather”.
