Kate Middleton and Prince William's third child, Prince Louis, is due to be christened on July 9, 2018.
But People is reporting that, out of all of the possible candidates for the role, it's unlikely that the Duchess of Sussex will be asked to be Prince Louis' godmother.
As a spokesperson for British bookmakers Ladbrokes said in a statement (via People), "As with George and Charlotte, [William and Kate] chose close and trusted friends and aides, rather than immediate family members, and the odds suggest that will be the same with little Prince Louis."
People also notes that Prince Harry isn't godfather to any of his brother's children, so it's unlikely that either the Duke or Duchess of Sussex will be asked to become a godparent on July 9.
Instead, according to Ladbrokes (via People), "the favorites include William and Harry’s former assistant and nanny Tiggy Pettifer... and William’s outgoing private secretary Miguel Head. Head is William’s most trusted employee, which was evident in the warm comments he made when Head announced he was leaving the palace."
Louis' baptism will take place at the Chapel Royal of St. James' Palace in London, which also just so happens to be where Meghan, Duchess of Sussex was secretly baptized ahead of the royal wedding.
The Archbishop of Canterbury, who conducted Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding, will be the one baptizing baby Prince Louis, within the very same chapel that Princess Diana's body was laid prior to her funeral in 1997.
