We love it, too
Since Kensington Palace announced that Meghan Markle is pregnant, the world has not been able to stop talking about anything else. We’re already so invested – from the most popular royal baby names, to the unique set of pregnancy rules she’ll have to follow, we want to know absolutely everything.
After touching down in Australia this week for their 16-day tour, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been proudly talking about the royal baby. Prince Harry made us all ‘aww’ when he rather shyly admitted during a conference: ‘We also genuinely couldn’t think of a better place to announce the, er, upcoming baby.
‘Whether it’s a boy or a girl. So thank you very, very much.’
Meghan has also been sharing details of her pregnancy, telling one mother that she was ‘feeling pretty good’ and ‘running on adrenaline’.
Fans are speculating that the former Suits star is due to give birth in March, but when it comes to the gender of the newest little royal it’ll be a closely guarded secret.
However, that hasn’t stopped Harry from admitting that there’s a girl’s name he’s really fond of.
At the Royal Botanical Gardens in Melbourne, Harry stopped to talk to new mum Jessica Bonaddido and her five-month-old daughter, Harriet.
Shortly afterwards, Jessica revealed: ‘As soon as I introduced my daughter to Harry, he said, “That’s a great name.
‘Maybe they will choose it for their own child, which would be fun. Meghan was right behind them and was playfully tickling her toes and said how sweet it was that I’d brought her out today.’
At the moment, the odds favour Alice, Victoria and Mary for a girl, and Alexander, Arthur and Philip for a boy.
But could Harriet be on the cards for Harry and Meghan’s little one?
We’re here for it.
