Royal commentator Omid Scobie said the Duchess of Sussex will have to heal the rift with her father Thomas Markle before Archie is involved.
Serena Williams could technically still be a godparent to Royal baby Archie even though she wasn't at his christening, says Royal expert Omid Scobie.
Meghan's mother has spent the past couple of weeks helping her daughter and Harry with their newborn in the UK.
Princess Diana's biographer Andrew Morton suggests Thomas Markle is trying to heal the rift with his estranged daughter Meghan. Speaking on Yahoo UK's 'The Royal Box,' Morton says: "Thomas Markle has been very quiet recently. "He’d been approached by Italian, French and German and other TV channels to talk about his relationship with Meghan, or non-relationship, and he turned them down." PR expert Nick Ede says: "I think Thomas of all them is going to be the one who actually wants to build this bridge and heal that rift. "I think Samantha, on the other hand, is very much about headlines, financial gain, so I don’t think she’s going to go quiet, but I do think Thomas will definitely." Historian Kate Williams adds: "I think you also have to accept the fact that we may not be completely privy to everything that is going on. "We do not know what kind of conversations may or may not have taken place. "Absolutely there is this sense that her father has been a loose cannon in the media, around the time of the marriage. In the last few weeks he has been notably absent from the air waves. "He did, I think, an appropriate statement on the birth, so I think we have to kind of give them the benefit of the doubt for that." Watch the full episode of Yahoo UK’s show ‘The Royal Box,‘ here .
"Sarah McCorquodale was the reckless one, the wild one, the one who was expelled from school, very much in the kind of Harry mould."
Princess Diana's biographer Andrew Morton thinks that one of Princess Diana's siblings could be chosen as a godparent for Meghan and Harry's baby son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. Speaking on Yahoo UK's 'The Royal Box,' Morton says: "It’s very interesting that Sarah McCorquodale was the reckless one, the wild one, the one who was expelled from school, very much in the kind of Harry mould. "And then Jane, the elder sister was very much the sensible one and she was the one who read a lesson at the wedding you may recall. "So it will be very interesting which Spencer they ask to be a godparent, will they go wild or will they go steady? Historian Anna Whitelock believes that Harry's cousin Zara Tindall and their A-list friends Serena Williams and George Clooney could also be chosen. She says: "I think we’ll see a blend of the celebrity and royalty in the choice of godparents." Watch the full episode of Yahoo UK’s show ‘The Royal Box,‘ here .
Last week William joked: “I'm very pleased and glad to welcome my own brother into the sleep deprivation society that is parenting.”
