Royals are known for their traditions. They always stick by them, and Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are not exceptions. They, too, have to follow royal protocols in naming their baby.


In October 2018, the Duchess of Sussex revealed that she was expecting a baby five months after she and the Duke of Sussex exchanged vows.

As per tradition, the couple has to wait a couple of days before revealing the name of their first born.A royal commentator revealed that there are two reasons why.

Before officially announcing the royal baby’s name to the public, the parents must first and foremost be sure of the name they have chosen, according to royal commentator Victoria Arbiter.

She added that the couple should also inform the Queen and the rest of the royal family first.


In an interview with Town and Country, Arbiter explained, “On one hand there's a desire to inform the families before a public declaration is made and any new parent appreciates having a little private time to get to know their new addition before the onslaught of announcements.”


"Royals, however, also have to consider the great responsibility in naming a new member of the family and I expect they want to be a hundred percent certain of their choice before announcing the name and sealing the baby’s place in history," she added.


Markle made the announcement of her pregnancy as soon as she arrived in Sydney with Prince Harry as they began their Commonwealth tour.

Royal fans have been making guesses about the baby’s name since the pregnancy news surfaced.

According to bookmakers, some fan favorites are Diana, Victoria, Albert, Arthur, Philip, Alice, and Alexandra.

Although, Standard revealed that Alexander, Alice, and Arthur are the top picks.
