Prince William and Kate Middleton appear to have made an offer to a friend he couldn't refuse.

It seems as if the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have asked Guy Pelly to be one of Prince George's godfathers.

A source reportedly told The Sun that the 31-year-old nightclub owner is "thrilled to bits" and "everyone was congratulating him," adding: "Guy's been a very discreet and good friend to William over the years. Those are qualities he wants to pass on to George."

Of course, since George will supposedly have six godparents total, several other names have been thrown around as possible contenders.

The frontrunners evidently include William's longtime pal Thomas van Straubenzee, Kate's friend Alicia Fox-Pitt and, not surprising, George's aunt and uncle, Pippa Middleton and Prince Harry.

The Palace, meanwhile, tells E! News that it will not be commenting on godparents at this stage.

George's christening will reportedly take place later this year.
