There's always been something about the Royal Family that we Americans simply can't get enough of. Whether it's their constant grace and glamor or simply the fact that we don't have our own clan of Royals, there's something about them that has always had us hooked.
And ever since one of our own moved into Buckingham Palace, we've felt more connected to the Royals than ever before. American actress, Meghan Markle, has been making waves ever since she swam across the pond, and the world has become obsessed with her relationship with Prince Harry and, more recently, the birth of their first child, Prince Archie.
Meghan's journey to royalty hasn't been a smooth one, as the Duchess has found herself being constantly criticized by the press and the public. It seems like the girl can do no right!
And her latest move while visiting her friend and tennis star, Selena Williams, at Wimbledon may have revealed a huge royal secret... Let's just say that Prince Harry won't be too happy.
Let's start from the beginning...
via: GettyMeghan reportedly met Prince Harry when a mutual friend set the pair up on a blind date while she was visiting London back in 2016.
Though Harry had apparently never heard of the actress when he first met her.interview together, Prince Harry sheepishly admitted that he had "never, never even heard of" his now-wife. Awkward...
But the pair hit it off immediately.Though they initially kept their relationship under wraps for the first 6 months, the couple began appearing in public together, and the world was struck by their natural chemistry.
It wasn't all smooth sailing for the actress, though.
via: GettyThe Brits really weren't impressed with the presence of an American in their Royal Family, were they? Though the majority of people welcomed Meghan with open arms, she was still subject to torrents of horrendous abuse, from both the public and the press.

Despite the abuse, Meghan stuck by Prince Harry.
via: GettyAnd they announced their engagement the following year. Speaking in an interview with Vanity Fair before their engagement, Meghan had gushed about their relationship. “We’re a couple," she explained. “We’re in love. I’m sure there will be a time when we will have to come forward and present ourselves and have stories to tell, but I hope what people will understand is that this is our time. This is for us. It’s part of what makes it so special, that it’s just ours. But we’re happy."
The couple got married the following year.In May 2018, the world watched in awe as Prince Harry and Meghan tied the knot in a lavish ceremony fit for a queen... Literally. As is of royal tradition, the pair wed in St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle in London.
And the highly-anticipated pregnancy announcement came shortly after...

And, this year, Baby Sussex finally arrived.On May 6th this year, Harry and Meghan welcomed their first child, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.
Though the couple have taken a less royal approach with the arrival of Archie.Rather than giving birth in St. Mary's Hosptial in London, where generations of royal women have delivered their children, Meghan and Harry opted for a private home birth at Frogmore Cottage instead.
And they didn't reveal their new addition immediately.
They have remained notoriously private.
Apart from the identity of baby Archie, there has been one other question bubbling on everyone's lips...
Sadly, the identity of Archie's godparents is remaining a firm secret.

The world has been left guessing who the new godparent could be...Meghan has a star-studded group of friends, and her baby shower line-up prior to Archie's birth said it all. An array of her celebrity friends attended the glamorous New York baby shower. Amongst the select few invited were former Suits star, Abigail Spencer, and tennis champion, Serena Williams.
Meghan and Serena have been close friends for years now.
via: Hello MagazineThey met at the 2010 Superbowl in Miami, and reportedly hit it off from the get-go. Speaking in a Q&A for DIRECTV's Celebrity Beach Bowl, Meghan discussed how they met, "We hit it off immediately, taking pictures, laughing through the flag football game we were both playing in, and chatting not about tennis or acting, but about all the good old fashioned girly stuff. So began our friendship."
Williams actually co-organized the shower with Meghan's long-term friend, Genevieve Hillis.
via: GettyThough details of the baby shower have been kept tightly under wraps, Serena spoke briefly about the event to Business of Fashion: "Planning something like that takes a lot of effort. I’m a perfectionist, so I’m like, 'Let’s make it perfect,'" she told the outlet. "It’s been a lot the last few days."
It sounded like a lavish event.
via: GettyThe shower took place at the Grand Penthouse of the Mark Hot; it included a flower arranging lesson by floral designer, Lewis Miller, and featured food from Michelin-star chef, Jean-Georges Vongerichten.
That's what friends are for, right?Meghan has seemingly returned the favor by surprising her friend at Wimbledon to watch her match against Kaja Juvan on Court One.
This is where things get suspicious...The Duchess' presence at Wimbledon has stirred a bit of excitement amongst eager Royal fans, with some people saying she may have accidentally revealed the identity of Archie's godparents.
And they don't think that it's Serena...Nope. Though the Duchess was there to cheer on Williams, people don't think that she's made the cut to be the godparent for Archie. Poor Serena...
Meghan attended the event with 2 of her oldest friends.
via: GettyMeghan was pictured sat in between 2 of her old university friends, Lindsay Roth and Genevieve Hillis.
Speculation was sparked...
via: GettyRoyal fans have been quick to jump to conclusions after the trio's appearance, with many excitedly assuming that these women could be Archie's godparents. The duo will be attending Archie’s private Christening this Saturday, with Lindsay Roth thought to be one of Meghan’s closest friends.
People believe that she has accidentally showcased the godparents.
If indeed the two ladies sitting either side of Meghan - Genevieve Hillis and Lindsay Jill Roth - are two of Archie… https://t.co/jZLRv4xrvh— Russell Myers (@Russell Myers)1562258298.0
Other people agreed with him...The presence of Meghan's 2 closest friends together is apparently confirmation that they are indeed Archie's godparents. Because, apparently, you and your friends can't hang out without giving them custody of your child...
And others thought that it was a load of nonsense.
@rjmyers Maybe, perhaps, but maybe they’re just invited guests. I think she’s trolling you guys. 😂 🐱🧶— From700Isles (@From700Isles)1562265442.0
