Every day, we are all closer more and more to the birth of the first child of Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Bookmakers throughout the United Kingdom are stating whether baby Sussex will be a prince or a princess, and which will be the name of a new royal. And while it is fairly easy for ordinary people to choose a name for their child, the case with royal family members is completely different. They have to respect the royal protocol and tradition.
That’s why the information about the name that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s newborns will have, appeared in the past days. Opinions are divided and part of the public believes that the list of names is already known and that it will be a name that is related to the tradition. On the other hand, there are those who believe Meghan and Harry will introduce changes when it comes to the names of royal babies and that they will decide for something completely different.
But remember that there are rules in the royal family that are strictly respected and according to which they should respect tradition, and therefore, decide for a name that some famous ancestor of baby Sussex had previously had. However, there is another fact that we must not forget, which is Meghan Markle’s American origin. It is well known that celebrities in the United States like to give their children quite unusual and unique names. That is why the biggest question these days is, will Her Majesty support her grandson and daughter-in-law?
What names are on the list of Duke and Duchess of Sussex?
There are still no details about the name of the new royal baby, and therefore there is no information about the names of the royal couple considering. If they think as Prince William and Kate Middleton, baby Sussex should be named as some famous monarch of the United Kingdom, such as Mary, Victoria, or perhaps Elizabeth, as the present Queen. Of course, this short list is for the case if baby would be a princess, but if it’s a prince, then names such as James, Alexander or Albert can be expected.
Also, some time ago we could read about the alleged intention of this royal couple to name their first child just like People’s Princess, Diana. In addition, the media speculate on the names Hunter, Taylor and Cohen.
When will we find out the name of a new royal baby?
Although very little time left until the birth of a baby, we still do not have any official information about the events of Duke and Duchess of Sussex. It is known that couple want more privacy, so it is possible they not to go public with new notifications.
However, the whole process of selecting a name is quite complicated. First of all, the couple must choose the name they want, and then inform the Queen about it. After that, Elizabeth II must confirm the agreement with their decision or reject it. In addition to the name, Her Majesty has to decide which title will receive a new royal baby. Therefore, the Queen will definitely need time to make the right decision. Just take a look at the name of the last royal baby, Prince Louis, whose name is His Royal Highness Prince Louis Arthur Charles of Cambridge.
Will Her Royal Highness support the choice of name for baby Sussex?
Certainly, something like this is possible to happen. For example, if Prince Harry and Meghan choose some too “extreme” name, the queen will probably reject their idea.
If they suggest names such as Coco, Apple or North, the Queen will probably not support this, but should agree with Doria, Alice or Diana. Another fact that will affect the Queen’s decision is that Meghan and Harry’s baby will most likely not become a competitor for the throne of the United Kingdom.
Whatever decision would be made, the whole of Britain and the world will closely follow this great event, because royal babies are particularly interesting to everyone.
