It looks like Miguel Head, Prince William's soon-to-be former private secretary, is the predicted favourite to be godfather to the new Prince - since Ladbrokes have slashed his odds from 2/1 to 5/4 in recent weeks.

Magazine Just behind in the betting is Tiggy Pettifier - formerly Tiggy Legge-Bourke - Prince Harry and Prince William's beloved former nanny, with odds of 2/1. Tiggy, who now lives on the Glanusk Estate in Wales, cared for the young Princes in the nineties - joining Prince Charles' household while he and Princess Diana were separating. She is thought to have a close bond with both William and Harry to this day, and was a guest at the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's royal wedding.

A representative at Ladbrokes said: "It's looking increasingly likely [that] the Duke and Duchess will turn to trusted aides over family members and right now the betting suggests Miguel Head is set to be a Godparent to little Louis."

In 2015, they chose five close family members and friends for Charlotte's, with Sophie Carter, James Meade, Adam Middleton, Laura Fellowes and Thomas van Straubenzee being her official custodians. It's thought that William and Kate will again choose a large handful of godparents for Louis.

Other high contenders include David Jardine-Patterson, Hugh van Custom and Princess Diana's sister Lady Jane Fellowes. But who's your money on?
