After Kate Middleton and Prince William have had their third baby – Prince Louis on April 23, 2018 and Pippa Middleton is pregnant, there’s is one more royal baby announced.

Kensington Palace released a statement on October 12 announcing that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, are expecting a child in the spring.

While a due date has not yet been confirmed, speculation has it around late March or early April.

Now the couple started their three-week tour of Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga – their first major international trip since they married in May.

The inappropriate moment for the big news?

While the public seems to be happy about the news, they definitely can’t ignore the giant elephant in the room – the royal couple completely stole Eugenie and Jack’s thunder. “Talk about pissing on someone’s parade,” one Twitter user wrote.

On Friday, October 12th, Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank had their ceremony. It was at this grand event that the Duke and Duchess reportedly decided to announce their baby news.

From the moment Meghan was spotted at the wedding, people were already speculating she could be expecting on a count of a long navy jacket covering her figure.

Baby’s name

As for the first name, the couple may decide to go for a traditional royal name like Alice, Mary, Elizabeth, or Victoria for a girl or Philip, Frederick, Charles, Arthur, Edward, or James for a boy.

If the child is a girl, rumors are circulating that the name Diana, in honor of Harry’s mother, may be another option.

According to The Telegraph, unlike the children of Kate Middleton and Prince William, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex AKA Meghan and Harry’s baby will not be a prince or a princess unless the Queen steps in.

However, if this child is a boy, the baby will likely be given the title “Earl of Dumbarton.”

What could Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s baby look like?

As the first baby of a royal couple that everyone adores, of course, there’s already speculations about how the baby will look like.

United States-based forensic artist Joe Mullins studied recent photos of Harry and Meghan to predict what a son and daughter for the couple could look like, and the results are amazing!

If Meghan gives birth to a baby girl, Mullins’ photo prediction definitely favors Meghan’s looks, given the child’s dark brunette locks and big brown eyes.
