Clover was born on February 26 and could be paid a special visit by Prince Harry, who is presently in the UK, performing his final duties before he and Meghan Markle finally leave their roles as senior members of the British Royal Family. 

Charlie and Harry have been friends since their youth when they attended Berkshire's Ludgrove Prep School together. Charlie is also the godfather of Prince Harry's son, Baby Archie.

This makes many people believe that Harry would also become godfather to Clover, given that Charlie's older brother, Thomas, plays the same role to Prince William's daughter, Princess Charlotte. 

The special friendship shared by Harry and Charlie extended to their weddings, with Charlie and his brother, Thomas, being ushers at Harry and Meghan's wedding. Charlie also spoke during the reception.

Harry returned the favors months later when the Duke of Sussex was the Best man at his best friend's wedding. They have remained close ever since, and the news of Clover's birth is sure to warm Harry's heart. 

Charlie Van Straubenzee acts as one of the heads of an investment firm, in the United Kingdom, called "Brown Advisor," while his wife owns a video company, Jenks & Co, which she runs with the assistance of her sister.
