After a seemingly long time of waiting, Meghan Markle has finally given birth to a new member of the royal family. Unfortunately, the world will have to wait for a few more days in anticipation of what the royal couple is going to name their firstborn.
Don’t worry, though. The guessing game commences as Prince Harry reportedly drops new hints of baby Sussex’ possible name.
Speculations began anew with the release of Prince Harry’s official announcement informing the press of the birth of his first son.
Speaking to the press with some horse stables in the background, the new father excitedly updated everyone that he and wife Markle, welcomed a healthy baby boy, 7 lbs 3 oz, around 5 a.m. on May 7th.
Admitting that he’s only had two hours of sleep since the baby’s delivery, the 34-year-old royal appeared both jubilant and tired in his announcement video. Some royal reporters even say that Prince Harry has already gone ‘full dad mode’.
While the couple wants to share the good news with their constituents, they decided to skip the traditional posing for photos outside of the hospital. Instead, the family went home straight to Frogmore Cottage where they spent their first night as a trio together.
They are set to formally introduce the young royal to the press this Tuesday though, according to royal reporter Omid Scobie.
Baby Sussex’ Name
Prince Harry hasn’t made any official statements yet to reveal what they’re planning to name their baby boy but the media has caught on possible ‘hints’ that the Prince allegedly dropped.
Noticing how the excited dad was standing in front of two stables of horses named George and Sir John, new outlets believe that these are likely contenders for the royal baby’s name.
But considering the fact that Prince William’s eldest son is already named George, the media is betting that John could be a more obvious choice. The Duke and Duchess will soon settle the score in a few days when they finally announce their child’s name as per tradition.
How Meghan is Doing
Prince Harry also assured the press that his wife is doing well. Markle’s own mother, Doria Ragland has even flown in from the States to be with her daughter. Meanwhile, Queen Elizabeth II is set to also pay the family a visit on Tuesday.
The royal family has been known to reuse the first names of other family members when naming their kids. For example, names like Charles, Arthur, Philip and Albert has come up again and again in different generations of British monarchs.
However, there is still a possibility that Prince Harry and Markle might go for a more modern name. Some people are wishing that they can incorporate the name Spencer to the baby’s name to honor the late Princess Diana.
One thing’s for sure though, the baby won’t be getting the His Royal Highness and Prince titles to his name considering he’s only seventh in line to the throne.
