According to royal expert Katie Nicholl, Meghan dropped a clue about one of her son's godparents during a recent royal outing.

The Duchess returned to work from maternity leave this month with the launch of her Smart Set clothing collection for the charity Smart Works, which supports unemployed women through interview coaching and personalised styling.

And royal writer Katie claimed that Archie's godmother, Isabel May, was at the event, telling Entertainment Tonight: "I was there at the launch and spotted in the audience Isabel May, who is in fact Archie’s godmother, although that's been kept very, very quiet.

"She's a great friend of the Duchess and, of course, she would have known all about this launch."

"They are just like any two young female friends. They totally support one another and enjoy lots of social activities together."
