Many of these possible names, of course, have very special meanings for the royal family. Harry’s father is Prince Charles and his mother was the late Princess Diana, while his grandparents are Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip.
Kensington Palace announced early Monday that Meghan, 37, is pregnant with her first child with Harry, 34. “Their Royal Highnesses have appreciated all of the support they have received from people around the world since their wedding in May and are delighted to be able to share this happy news with the public,” the palace said in a statement.
The baby — who is due to arrive in early May 2019, according to a source — will be seventh in line to the British throne behind Charles, Prince William, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, Prince Louis and Harry.
“Harry is elated and beside himself,” a source told Us Weekly exclusively. “[Meghan is] feeling amazing. She is excited, happy and over the moon. She’s in great health and has had a very easy pregnancy so far.”
