Everyone knows that Baby Sussex is coming soon. Meghan Markle is getting to the last stage of her pregnancy, and fans are getting very excited and they want to be in the know and know everything about the baby. Especially what the name is going to be.
Princess Diana has said that it was her decision to name her sons. She had the final say in giving her sons names William and Henry, who now goes by his nickname Harry. This information was revealed in Andrew Morton’s Diana: Her True Story.
“The alternative was Arthur and Albert,” the late royal said, adding how she reacted to the other possibility. “No thank you.”
She additionally said: “There weren’t fights over it. It was just a fait accompli.”
The two “A” names did end up being their middle names. The full name of her oldest son is William Arthur Philip Louis, and her younger son is Henry Charles Albert David. A funny coincidence about Meghan’s name is that it is actually her middle name and her first, real name is Rachel.
If the royal couple, Meghan Markle, who is 37 and her husband Prince Harry, who is 34, stick to the royal traditions they will not let the world know the name of their newborn baby as soon as it is born. They will, according to the tradition, wait a couple of days and then give a formal announcement. Since we also do not know the gender of the baby, that will be revealed at the same time.
In the case of Kate Middleton we waited 4 days until we learned the name and gender of the baby. The name they chose was Louis Arthur Charles. For their other two children we only had to wait 2 days for each. Their names are Prince George and Princess Charlotte. In case of the older members of the royal families the names were not revealed for weeks up to a month.
People are making bets as to which name to the couple will choose. If the baby turns out to be a girl, popular choices are Diana in honor of Harry’s mother or Elizabeth, just like the Queen.
