Meghan Markle & Prince Harry Welcome A Baby Boy — Find Out Why He’s NOT A Royal!

Published

Baby Sussex is here! That’s right, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have finally welcomed their brand new bundle of joy, and according to their royal Instagram page, it’s a boy!

If this pregnancy seemed a bit long to you, you were right. The royal family announced Markle’s pregnancy back in October, saying she was due this Spring. Soon, it was revealed that her due date was actually late April.

However, baby Sussex ended up being about a week late (according to Royal editor Chris Ship), arriving on May 6th.

New papa Prince Harry gushed about his newborn and wife soon after the birth.

And although baby boy doesn’t have a name yet, people have placed their bets. According to PageSix, The top choice is Arthur at 5/1 odds. Albert and Philip — the name of Queen Elizabeth’s husband, the Duke of Edinburgh — come in second at 6/1. Next up are James at 8/1, Alexander and Alfred — both at 10/1 — and Thomas at 12/1. And for those who hoped the baby would be a girl called Diana, after his late grandmother Princess Diana, there might be some solace. Her maiden name, Spencer, has odds of 14/1.

One thing you won’t be calling the baby is His Royal Highness — well, that is, unless the Queen intervenes, this according to DailyMail:

Harry and Meghan’s baby boy is not officially a royal, despite being seventh in line to the throne, after George V limited titles within the family during the First World War.

HRH status normally lapses after two royal generations – except for the eldest son of the eldest son of the eldest son of the monarch, which is Prince George.

But the Queen decreed all of William and Kate’s children should be HRH – which is why Princess Charlotte is not Lady Charlotte, and Prince Louis is not Lord Louis.

So, maybe the Queen will do the same for baby Sussex — once he gets a name, of course.
