- Baby Archie's godparents are reportedly Prince Harry's childhood nanny Tiggy Pettifer and his friend/mentor Mark Dyer.
- Reminder: Harry, Meghan Markle, and Archie will be spending most of their time in North America henceforth.
Welp, looks like we finally (kinda) know who Meghan Markle and Prince Harry named as their son Archie's godparents. According to a new report from the Sunday Times, the Sussexes named Prince Harry's childhood nanny Tiggy Pettifer (formerly Legge-Bourke) as Archie's godmother, along with Harry's close friend and mentor, Mark Dyer as godfather. Note: it's likely that there are way more people on the list that are still unknown, as the royals typically choose a ton of godparents for their kids.
Keep in mind that Harry and Meghan themselves haven't confirmed Archie's godparents, and they're unlikely to do so as they seek a more private life in North America. The couple recently announced that they're stepping back as senior royals, a major decision that was met with the Queen's approval.
Harry recently gave his first public statement on the move, explaining in part that he and Meghan will continue to live a life of service:
"I was born into this life, and it is a great honor to serve my country and the Queen. When I lost my mum 23 years ago, you took me under your wing. You've looked out for me for so long, but the media is a powerful force, and my hope is one day our collective support for each other can be more powerful because this is so much bigger than just us. It has been our privilege to serve you, and we will continue to lead a life of service. It has also been a privilege to meet so many of you, and to feel your excitement for our son Archie, who saw snow for the first time the other day and thought it was bloody brilliant!"
