Baby Archie's mystery godparents have been revealed today as Prince Harry's closest childhood mentors, who helped him through his mother's death.

Harry and William's former nanny, Tiggy Pettifer, and his mentor, Mark Dyer, were appointed Archie's godparents ahead of his christening last July.

At the time, Buckingham Palace released a statement saying the names of the baby's godparents "will remain private".

Harry and Meghan have never publicly revealed their choices, another royal tradition the couple have broken among many.

However, a source told the Sunday Times that Harry's closest childhood mentors had been chosen.

Since Diana's death, when Harry was 12, Pettifer has remained close to both of the boys.

It is believed Meghan was introduced to the former nanny when the pair started dating.

The former nursery school teacher - who once called Harry and brother William "my babies" - was invited to Meghan and Harry's wedding in May 2018.

Harry is godfather to Pettifer's son, Fred.

Archie's other godparent, Dyer, who is a former Welsh Guards officer, acted as a surrogate second older brother to Harry after Diana died.

Harry has remained close with the former Army officer along with his Texan heiress wife, Amanda Kline.
