After bets were placed on gender, name and birth date of the royal baby, now the bookmakers are busy trying to guess who could be Princess Charlotte’s godparents.
According to oddsmakers Ladbrokes, Prince William’s cousins Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie are on top of the list. Peter Phillips, the Duke of Cambridge’s cousin, are among the favorites with 1/2 chances.
Pippa Middleton and Prince Harry also have high chances as potential godparents. With 4/6 chances is Hugh van Cutsem, who is William’s good friend, and already a godparent for Prince George.
Today the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge announced on Buckingham Palace’s official Twitter account the date and location were their daughter will be christened, and the event will be held on July 5 at St. Mary Magdalene’s Church.
The Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton, gave birth to her second child, daughter Charlotte Elizabeth Diana, on May 2.
