George's cousin Ben Breslin tells NW that the 57-year-old would make a "wonderful" godfather to the couple's royal bub.

"I'm all for it," Ben says. "He'd make a wonderful godfather – he'd make a wonderful just about anything, he's a good guy."

George and his wife Amal,40, are both friends of the couple.

Sources say they've flown Harry, 34, and Meghan, 37, to their Italian home in Lake Como, where they received a crash course in parenting after meeting the pair's one-year-old twins, Ella and Alexander.

Now Ben's hoping his cousin will bring his royal pals along next time he visits his hometown of Augusta, Kentucky.

"That would be crazy but fun. It's kind of a laid-back place to be, lots of family around – we always do two or three family events a year, that's fun and enjoyable," he said.

It's no surprise that the pair are top contenders, as the foursome have been friends for quite a while.

The Clooney's were in the VIP pews at the royal wedding and even holidayed with the Sussex's in Lake Como.

And as Meghan settled into London life, Amal was there to lend a hand while she settled in.

A source told People magazine back in May, "Meghan and Amal have known each other for a while [and share] many interests.

"Amal has been helping Meghan settle into London life, it was a very natural friendship from day one."

The British lawyer and the Duchess of Sussex met through a mutual friend and both share the same passions for activism, especially those related to human and women's rights.

Meghan was a UN women's advocate for political participation and leadership and famously spoke at the headquarters about how she protested against a sexist dishwashing soap advertisement.

Amal has spoken at the UN headquarters numerous times including working with Kofi Annan for a United Nations commission on Syria and acting as counsel during a 2013 inquiry into the use of drones in counter-terrorist activities. Together, these two will probably save the world!

And now, the women can add another shared title to their common interests - motherhood!

We're sure they'll swap war stories and titbits once Baby Sussex is here! Can you imagine the play dates?
