ARCHIE HARRISON MOUNTBATTEN-WINDSOR will be christened in front of family and friends at Windsor Castle today – but will Jessica Mulroney be one of the godparents after the stylist dropped a major hint on social media?
Meghan Markle’s best friend Jessica Mulroney is tipped to be one of the godparents to Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. The royal tot, who is seventh-in-line to the throne, will be christened tday at a private service inside the Queen’s private chapel at Windsor Castle. Members of the Royal Family and friends will be in attendance to enjoy the happy occasion – but the public will not know who is there. Meghan and Prince Harry have already stated their intention to keep the proceedings private, and the press and public at bay.
Buckingham Palace released a statement, saying: “The godparents, in keeping with their wishes, will remain private.”
This has not stopped royal fans from staying glued to social media in order to spot any slip-ups made by potential godparents ahead of their arrival.
And it appears Canadian stylist Jessica may have already misstepped by giving away an indication on Instagram she will miss her family due to being away from home.
According to Hello!, she shared the following post with her 319,000 followers: “I won’t be back with my family for a while so this ends the Instagram session of mum losing her [poop emoji].”

Fans quickly speculated as to whether Jessica was implying she was off to the UK for Archie’s christening.
One person wrote: “I hope you’re going where I think you might be going!! Love love love.”
The post was apparently altered or taken down, so we do not know for certain.
However, the fashionista shared another picture of her giving a kiss to daughter Ivy, which added: “Missing my bestie.”

Jessica and Meghan have been best pals since meeting in Toronto on the set of Suits.
Good Morning America fashion host Jessica was at Meghan’s lavish baby shower in New York in February.
She also played a pivotal role at the wedding to Harry at Windsor Castle, looking after the pageboys and page girls.
What do the bookies say?
The bookies believe Jessica is a sure bet for the role, playing her as favourite with odds of 1/7.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Meghan’s pals are over for the big day and while it’s all about Archie, our eyes are on exactly who’ll be given the Godparents honour.
Jessica Mulroney and Charlie Van Straubenzee continue to head the betting.”
Charlie Van Straubenzee is Prince Harry’s oldest childhood friend.
Other favourites are Linsday Roth 6/4 and Genevieve Hillis 6/4 – longterm friends of Meghan’s both spotted with her at Wimbledon on Thursday.
