The Royal baby wait isn’t over as name remains a mystery | UK News
Although the Sussex’s baby has arrived, supporters of the Royal Family are being kept on the edge of their seat waiting to find out what the baby boy will be called – and what he looks like.
The Duchess of Sussex gave birth to a baby boy who weighed 7lb 3oz at 5.26am on Monday morning.
Speaking to the press while Meghan and their child rested, Prince Harry said: “Mother and baby are doing incredibly well. It’s been the most amazing experience I can ever have possible imagined.
“How any woman does that, what they do is beyond comprehension. We’re both absolutely thrilled and so grateful to all the love and support of everybody out there.”
He added: “It was amazing, absolutely incredible and as I said, I’m so incredibly proud of my wife and as every father and parent would ever say, your baby is absolutely amazing so this little thing is absolutely to die for so I’m over the moon.”
Seventh in line to the throne, the child will not be bestowed the title HRH unless the Queen steps in. The boy is likely to be an earl, possibly Earl of Dumbarton.
Not only is the baby’s title not clear yet, the infant’s name has still not been decided.
Prince Harry said: “[We are] still thinking about names. The baby is a little bit overdue, so we’ve had a little bit of time to think about it.”
Those trying to guess what the baby will be called may be considering Meghan’s habit for side-stepping traditional royal protocol and wondering if the child will have an unusual name.
Sky News has taken a look at the names the royal couple could give to their boy.
Odds are from SkyBet and correct as of 7 May.
The infant is thought to be the first mixed-race child born to a senior member of the royal family in centuries, but those hoping for a glimpse of the baby will have to wait.
Harry said: “We’ll be able to see you in two days time as planned and be able to share it with you as a family and share it with you guys and so everyone can see the baby.”
Baby Sussex’s birth comes less than a year after Harry married the American former actress in a glittering ceremony in St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle.
Harry, 34, and Meghan, 37, became engaged after dating for 16 months after being set up on a blind date in London.
