The royal baby isn't even born yet, and already it's amassed a staff of Palace officials to tend to its every need. But good help only goes so far. When Kate Middleton becomes a mom in July, she'll have the task of selecting a new set of baby minders—the Godparents. It's a decision—like so many others—the royal family doesn't take lightly.

“Theoretically, the Godparents have to look after the child if anything were to happen to both parents, but that’s very rare and unlikely,” Royal expert Phil Dampier, author of What’s in the Queen’s Handbag and Other Royal Secrets told Yahoo! Shine.
“I would be amazed if Pippa and Harry aren’t named,” says Dampier. “However, it’s likely that Will and Kate will decide to name six or seven godparents, striking a balance between older and younger friends and relations, male and female, and are likely to hold off on asking some friends now so they can approach the rest for their future children.”
