11 Celebs Who'd Make Awesome Godparents to the Royal Baby
ELTON JOHN AND DAVID FURNISH
As the very famous rock on Kate's left hand shows, it's important to the couple to keep William's mother's memory alive. And as one of Princess Diana's closest friends, John (and husband Furnish) would be a lovely choice for godparent.
She's the matriarch to end all matriarchs (don't tell the Queen). Plus, she's helped propel each of her children to stardom … not that Will and Kate's newest addition will need much help in that area.
ANGELINA JOLIE AND BRAD PITT
Streep has the Midas touch: Seriously, everything she touches turns to gold. Who better than the closest thing Hollywood has to royalty to lead a real little prince or princess through life? And maybe then the Queen would be compelled to (finally) give Streep the honorary damehood she so deserves.
BEYONCé AND JAY Z
After the two couples bonded over their respective power couple statuses at a Brooklyn Nets game (at least that's what we assume they discussed), the next logical step would be godparenthood. Not to mention, Blue Ivy would make a fabulous godsister and playmate for the little royal.
Fine, Smith isn't exactly like her Downton Abbey character in real life, but she's as close as it gets. If Will and Kate were to choose Dame Maggie as their child's godparent, the little one would grow up to be witty, self-assured and most definitely regal. And as a Dame Commander, you know she's already got the Queen's approval.
