Prince Harry and his wife, Duchess Meghan, welcomed their son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor into the world on May 6 and George, who has a close friendship with the royal couple, previously admitted he doesn't want to be the child's godfather.
The 'ER' star thinks it would be a "bad idea" if they chose him to be a supporting figure in their son's life at his christening later this year because he already has his hands full with his and wife Amal Clooney's 23-month-old twins Alexander and Ella.
When asked if he would be Archie's godfather, he said: "That would be a bad idea. I shouldn't be the [godfather]. I'm a father of twins I can barely do that."
Asked if he would turn down the role if it was offered to him, the Hollywood star replied: "I'm not going to be the godfather. I promise you that. I'm fairly sure."
The Duke and Duchess announced the birth of Archie last week on Monday evening (06.05.19) but didn't give fans a glimpse of the tiny tot until a couple of days later (08.05.19) after he had been introduced to his great-grandmother, Her Majesty The Queen.
