Buckingham Palace Addresses Theory Its Website Leaked Royal Baby Names

As the baby fever increases so do rumors surrounding the birth of the new royal. A recent rumor claimed that Buckingham Palace had accidentally leaked potential baby names and the Palace was quick to respond.

In the latest rumor about the impending birth of Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan's royal baby, Buckingham Palace emphatically denied that its website accidentally leaked potential royal baby names on Tuesday. 

Some royal fans discovered that if one typed potential baby names, such as "Prince Arthur," into the URL of the palace website, royal.uk, the page would redirect to the site's main page. However, if one searched other names, such as "Princess Grace" the site gave a "Page Not Found" message.

Just one week ago, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex asked that you kindly consider supporting various organisations around the world in lieu of sending gifts for the upcoming arrival of their first born. Not only did many of you lend your support, you took action. Their Royal Highnesses wanted you to know the impact of your support – the direct effect your donation, energy, and action made! YOU chose to be part of the collective good, and you have made a real difference. Whether a $5 donation, £1000 contribution, offering to volunteer, or spreading the word – you’ve played your part. And on behalf of The Duke and Duchess (and Baby Sussex), we thank you so much. YOUR IMPACT: @thelunchboxfund will now be able to provide a minimum of 100,000 additional hot nutritionally fortified meals to children in dire need across South Africa @littlevillagehq received donations from all over the world (from UAE to Hong Kong and the US), they’ve increased their monthly donors, had a surge in volunteer applications, and re-energized their hard working team of 200+ staff and volunteers @wellchild can now provide 300+ additional hours of specialist care by a Well Child Nurse for a child with serious health needs, allowing families to stay together at home vs in hospital @Baby2Baby have received over 5,000 products to disperse to children in need, including cribs, books, backpacks, diapers and have received monetary donations from around the globe - from Guadalajara to Italy. You made this happen. Thank you.

Fans also noticed that if they typed in the name of an actual royal, such as "Prince George," they were directed to the page reserved for the eldest child of Prince William and Duchess Kate of Cambridge. 

Fans immediately assumed that there are pages set up for the Sussex royal baby that are not activated yet. Many immediately assumed the findings were a hint at possible baby names.

Today is #earthday - an opportunity to learn about, celebrate and continue to safeguard our planet, our home. The above, Their Royal Highnesses in Rotorua, New Zealand. Of the 170 different species originally planted in the early 1900’s, only a handful of species, including these majestic Redwoods, remain today. Next, we invite you to scroll through a series of 8 photos taken by The Duke of Sussex©️DOS sharing his environmental POV including: Africa’s Unicorn, the rhino. These magnificent animals have survived ice ages and giant crocodiles, amongst other things! They have adapted to earth’s changing climate continually for over 30 million years. Yet here we are in 2019 where their biggest threat is us. A critical ecosystem, Botswana’s Okavango Delta sustains millions of people and an abundance of wildlife. Huge bush fires, predominantly started by humans, are altering the entire river system; the ash kills the fish as the flood comes in and the trees that don’t burn become next year’s kindling. Desert lions are critically endangered due partly to human wildlife conflict, habitat encroachment and climate change. 96% of mammals on our 🌍 are either livestock or humans, meaning only 4% remaining are wild animals. Orca and Humpback whale populations are recovering in Norway thanks to the protection of their fisheries. Proof that fishing sustainably can benefit us all. Roughly 3/4 of Guyana is forested, its forests are highly diverse with 1,263 known species of wildlife and 6,409 species of plants. Many countries continue to try and deforest there for the global demand for timber. We all now know the damage plastics are causing to our oceans. Micro plastics are also ending up in our food source, creating not just environmental problems for our planet but medical problems for ourselves too. When a fenced area passes its carrying capacity for elephants, they start to encroach into farmland causing havoc for communities. Here @AfricanParksNetwork relocated 500 Elephants to another park within Malawi to reduce the pressure on human wildlife conflict and create more dispersed tourism. Every one of us can make a difference, not just today but every day. #earthday

"A page on Buckingham Palace's website has been 'reserved' for 'Prince Arthur,' 'Prince James' and 'Prince Alexander,' " claimed The Sun, Britain's largest tabloid paper. Another paper added, "The reserved pages may be the biggest hint yet of the baby’s name and gende.

However, the Palace was quick to set the record straight. The Palace made an immediate statement that the claims were false.

“A large number of search term redirects were set up some time ago on royal.uk. This was in order to improve user experience,” the palace said in a statement. 

Though the statement was relatively vague, it denied that the palace was making any hints. It has been known that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex had a long list of possible baby names as early as October last year but the public has not been given any hints to its contents.

The Buckingham PalaceTwitter feed has been focused on babies for a different reason. The account has been following Countess Sophie of Wessex, wife of the queen's youngest son, Prince Edward, on her visit to India.

She is on official business and spent time at neonatal programs that help fight blindness in premature babies. The projects are supported by the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Trust.

The palace posted photos of Sophie with a newborn on Monday. Some fans jumped to the conclusion that Baby Sussex had arrived however that was not the case. 

While fans are eager to know all about Queen Elizabeth II's eighth great-grandchild. Harry and Meghan are determined to have as much privacy as possible.
