Harry and Meghan are expected to pick a traditional name for their son so it’ll come as no surprise to hear that the top three names predicted are James, Albert and Arthur.

Other popular predictions include Alexander, Louis and Philip.

However, the new parents are more likely to stray away from tradition and may opt for a non-traditional name like Oliver, Spencer and Robert.

We will just have to wait until Wednesday to see what name Harry and Meghan have chosen for their baby boy. There’s no doubt the family-of-three are enjoying every second together.

Meghan gave birth to their son in the early morning on May 6th, 2019. Their Royal Highnesses’ son weighs 7lbs. 3oz.

They stated: “The Duchess and baby are both healthy and well, and the couple thank members of the public for their shared excitement and support during this very special time in their lives.”

We couldn’t be happier for Harry and Meghan. They’ll make the most fantastic parents.

Prince Harry has rescheduled a planned trip to Amsterdam, in the Netherlands. 

The British royal was scheduled to fly to Amsterdam on May 8th in order to launch the one-year countdown to the 2020 Invictus Games – a sporting event for military veterans. 

The trip has been postponed by one day, to May 9th, with fans of the royal family speculating that the decision has come due to Harry's wife Meghan Markle being due to give birth.

'Due to the logistical planning for the travelling press to cover visits and engagements by the Royal Family, we have taken the decision to postpone the Duke of Sussex's scheduled visit to Amsterdam,' reads an official palace statement to PEOPLE. 

'The Duke is currently scheduled to travel to The Hague on Thursday 9th May for the launch of the Invictus Games The Hague 2020 as planned.'

There is major global anticipation for the birth of the new royal, so this postponement has made many believe that the Duchess of Sussex is on the cusp of giving birth. 

The couple have thus far kept the gender and due date a secret. along with maintaining privacy around their birth plans.

On April 11, Buckingham Palace issued a statement on behalf of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to let the nation know that they would not be immediately sharing their birth experience and details of the royal arrival.

‘Their Royal Highnesses have taken a personal decision to keep the plans around the arrival of their baby private,’ the statement declared.

‘The Duke and Duchess look forward to sharing the exciting news with everyone once they have had an opportunity to celebrate privately as a new family.’

'The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are very grateful for the goodwill they have received from people throughout the United Kingdom and around the world as they prepare to welcome their baby.'

The bookies have some very traditional favourites when it comes to naming Baby Sussex – with Alice, Grace or Victoria favourited for a girl or James, Edward or Arthur for a boy. Diana and Grace are two less traditional royal lineage names that have found favour at the bookies, with Diana of course being the name of Prince Harry and Prince William's late mother, Diana The Princess of Wales.

Prince William and Kate Middleton paid tribute to Diana by choosing Diana as one of their second child, Princess Charlotte's middle names.

Whether it is her dislike for bloodsports or her fondness for breaking royal dress protocol, Meghan Markle has faced more scrutiny than any other royal spouse in recent memory.

The former actress has had every act dissected since she was first connected to her now husband, Prince Harry, and with the announcement of the couple’s first pregnancy, the fishbowl-like surveillance on Meghan’s every move increased ever further.

From critical articles claiming that Meghan has a vice-like control over her husband, leading to alleged distancing between Harry and his family, to accusations of animosity between Meghan and Kate Middleton, Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge – Meghan has not been painted as a pleasant character by much of the media and the public.

Even George Clooney, a close friend to Meghan, told Who that Meghan ‘has been pursued and vilified and chased in the same way that Diana was and it’s history repeating itself,’ amid reports that he and wife Amal would be godparents to Baby Sussex.

Critique of the Duchess of Sussex has not eased off since the announcement of the conception of Baby Sussex, and so Meghan and Harry’s recent and somewhat controversial choice to keep their birth plan and child’s arrival a secret from the public is understandable.

On April 11, Buckingham Palace issued a statement on behalf of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to let the nation know that they would not be immediately sharing their birth experience and details of the royal arrival.

‘Their Royal Highnesses have taken a personal decision to keep the plans around the arrival of their baby private,’ the statement declared.

‘The Duke and Duchess look forward to sharing the exciting news with everyone once they have had an opportunity to celebrate privately as a new family.’

So, unlike Kate and WIlliam’s three births, Meghan and Harry will not be descending the steps of the Lindo Wing of St. Mary’s Hospital with a new babe in arms following Meghan’s labour.

While it is true that the royal family has a duty to maintain a public image for those living under the monarchy, starting a family is a joyous concept that many of us reading this article has had the pleasure of experiencing – and having a baby is not a royal duty, nor a female duty, nor a wifely duty, it’s a cherished gift.

The apprehension, tension, excitement and often fear all culminating in the birth of a child, a love for whom you will share with your partner for as long as you both live, is overwhelming, and it seems unsurprising that Meghan may not want to culminate this sacred experience with a postpartum performance.

Even the beloved Princess Diana, Harry’s mum, admitted that ‘she had “felt the whole country was in labour’ with her, which is reflective of the level of surveillance placed on these women.

Juggling royal duty and the joy of motherhood cannot be easy (despite Kate making it look like an absolute dream), so perhaps Meghan knows that as her life, and by extension the life of her child, will be filled with public appearances, dutiful events and photo ops for eternity, she wants to keep a few cherished days or weeks with her baby to herself.

This longing for privacy doesn’t make her a ‘diva duchess’ or call for a ‘Mexit,’ it makes her a mum, a human, and displays the person she was before she traded her past life for one of public royal duty.

UK and global citizens alike may feel disappointment that they will not know immediately whether Baby Sussex is male or female, or how much they weighed at birth, or how the couple are feeling following Meghan’s labour, but the public will be privy to every detail of the child’s life from the moment Meghan and Harry go public onwards – and we need to accept that.

Labour and birth are difficult experiences, and Meghan’s reluctance to play a role once becoming a new mum is admirable – if the couple feel that some days of privacy are what is best for themselves and Baby Sussex, then who are we to parent-shame them for doing so?

With Doria Ragland’s arrival in the UK signifying that Meghan is soon due to give birth, we can only wait in hope that Baby Sussex has a safe arrival, and rejoice with the new parents when they feel comfortable enough to share their news with the world.

It looks like the Duchess of Sussex will follow in the footsteps of Princess Diana and the Duchess of Cambridge after all as the mum-to-be is planning on giving birth in the famous Lindo Wing at St. Mary’s Hospital.

It was previously reported that Meghan was going to give birth to her baby boy or girl at Frimley Park Hospital in Surrey.

The hospital is closer to their new home Frogmore Cottage taking only half an hour to get to.

However, it looks like Meghan may have changed her mind about where she gives birth to her and Harry’s first child.

According to Hello! the former actress is set to give birth in the London hospital after all.

It is believed the staff at the hospital have been asked not to take any holidays in April, which is when Meghan’s due date is.

A standard room at the Lindo Wing costs £5,900 and deluxe rooms cost £6,275.

The package includes midwifery care, routine blood tests, nursery care, celebration afternoon tea, routine medications and dressings, meals and daily newspaper, postnatal physiotherapy and theatre fees.

Meghan is set to have at least 20 medical staff looking after her when she goes into labour.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are set to welcome their first child into the world in the coming months. Picking a baby name is one of the biggest decisions any new parents will face and it’s no different for Harry and Meghan.

There’s even more pressure on the pair as the world will be waiting to hear what name the beloved couple pick for their baby.

Many people believe they will pick Diana if they have a daughter, after Harry’s late-mum, however, new reports have seen a spike in one girls name and we adore it.

Bookmaker Coral has found that Victoria is officially the front-runner if former Suits actress Meghan gives birth to a baby girl.

Victoria has been a popular name with the royals for generations and is a perfect option for Harry and Meghan’s first born.

The name Victoria is the Latin word for 'victory' or 'conquer' and is used as the feminine form corresponding to the name Victor.

Victoria was the name of the goddess of victory in Roman mythology.

The name is the current favourite at 8-1, followed by Diana at 10-1 and Alice at 12-1.

If the Duke and Duchess welcome a boy it is believed they will call him Albert. However, other reports claim Harry is hoping to honour his grandfather Prince Philip by picking Philip as his son’s moniker.

Albert is currently at 10-1. Other popular choices include Arthur and Alfred.

We are so excited for Harry and Meghan to become parents. There’s no doubt they’ll pick the perfect name for their baby boy or girl when the time comes.
