George and Amal Clooney will reportedly be godparents to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s baby
Amal and Meghan have been close for years, and Harry and George have become buddies because of that. They're much closer than the headlines let on, reveals a source
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will reportedly be naming George and Amal Clooney as the godparents of their first baby who is due in Spring 2019. The actor's family revealed that the two couples have become extremely close.
George's cousin Ben Breslin spoke to DailyMail and shared, "I'm all for it. He'd make a wonderful godfather, he'd make a wonderful just about anything - he's a good guy." The couple regularly socialize with the royal parents-to-be and the pair also flew Meghan and Harry via private jet to George's luxury residence located on Lake Como. In fact, George and Amal's one-year-old twins, Ella and Alexander might have already given Harry and Meghan a first-hand taste of parenting.
A source added, "Amal and Meghan have been close for years, and Harry and George have become buddies because of that. They're much closer than the headlines let on." The source then continued that George has "told a couple of people he has a strong hunch" that they would be considered for such a special and important role. It has also been reported that Meghan and Harry will be attending a dinner party next month at George and Amal's London home along with very distinguished guests such as Barrack and Michelle Obama.
George's family are very hopeful that he will one day get his royal friends along with their baby, shares Ben. "Absolutely, that would be crazy but fun. It's kind of a laid back place to be, lots of family around, we always do two or three family events a year, that's fun and enjoyable," he added.
"I'm not in on those royal circle talks, but that's not to say next time he comes in we might sit down for an hour over bourbon and talk about it. George's like the rest of us, he's as common as an old shoe, but he likes to hobnob with the big people, so that's great," he continued.
The couple won't be expecting any sort of special treatment as Ben predicted that George would love to show Prince Harry a good country-style American time. He also added that George would like to show Harry his favorite hangout which is the Augusta Irish Pub. The pub features a life-sized cardboard cutout of the town's most famous export and Ben shared, "They'd have to go and get a picture with that. [There's the] basketball court that he loves in Augusta, and maybe the pool, his nieces and nephews loved the pool. And [they'd] probably just drive around the country roads."
"They would probably go out to Micky's Bakery and get some transparent tarts, and to Hutchison's Country Ham to get some country ham, and he likes the barbecue over here too. There's also a nice little restaurant, General Store, We had a family 'do there one Saturday morning when he was here last. [It's] always about eating, and maybe just a smidgen about a drink," Ben added.
In February, Amal Clooney confirmed that the family would be relocating to America when the twins are ready to start school.
