Meghan Markle May Choose 'an African' Name For Her Baby, Expert Claims
Meghan Markle is due to give birth to baby Sussex anytime from now. All through her pregnancy, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have always given us something to talk about. It is either about Meghan Markle's exquisite fashion sense or the couple's show of minimal PDA. Sometimes, it is their charitable events all around the world. The Royal fans love the couple.
As we await the arrival of baby Sussex, there have been lots of deliberations. Conjecture on how long Meghan Markle will take for maternity leave. Likewise, contemplations about Prince Harry taking paternity leave and how long it may be. The newest guesstimate is about what the Royal baby may be named.
WHY AN AFRICAN NAME
The Royal child is expected to pop out anytime from now, and the speculations on what the baby will be called have been much. Myka Meier, an etiquette expert, disclosed that the Duchess of Sussex might choose a name to mirror her love of African or American roots. Myka Meier informed Fabulous Digital that though the first name of the baby might be more traditional, the couple may play around with the middle name, saying,
"In the wedding, she had several nods to her American heritage, and I think we will see the same with the baby. I think we will see them playing with a middle name. I don't believe it will be one of Meghan's family name. But I do believe it could be a name with a significant meaning. Maybe something symbolic of their travels together."
“They both have a love of Africa, and maybe it could be something there, something that has meaning. Maybe they could have a middle name that is symbolic of the work that they do together or a country they have visited or have a mutual love of.”
Myka Meier went on to say that,
"I think the baby's first name will be British and classic, perhaps a family name."
She also added that,
"they don't have the same pressure that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have in terms of next in line on the throne. So I think we might see little more playful in the naming, but I do think that the first name will still be something more British and classic.”
A POSSIBLE RELOCATION AFTER THE BIRTH OF THE ROYAL BABY
It was reported that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have plans of moving to Africa after their baby is born. There are also claims that the reason the couple moved from Kensington Palace to the Frogmore Cottage in Windsor may have been to deflect some of the unwanted attention they are getting.
"They are worried that Harry and Meghan are going to establish a totally separate enterprise that nobody can get under control,"
said a source to the Sunday Times.
"There are discussions in palace circles about how do we harness Harry and Meghan and this tremendous global attention they get. How do we draw them back, because laying down the law and ticking them off doesn't work at all."
WHEN IS THE BABY DUE
Even though the couple has revealed that the Royal baby will be here in spring, 2019, they didn’t mention the exact date. Kensington Palace announced the news of the pregnancy five months after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tied the knot at St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle.
Kensington Palace released the news several weeks after fans speculated about Meghan Markle being pregnant. Earlier, fans had spread thoughts on Twitter with claims that the Duchess of Sussex is expecting after she was seen in Sydney. This was hours before the royals confirmed the truth about her pregnancy.
A PRIVATE ARRIVAL
The Royal couple has plans of keeping the arrival of their baby private. On the 11th of April, Buckingham Palace released a statement on behalf of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. The note was a thank you to the well-wishers then it said,
"Their Royal Highnesses have taken a personal decision to keep the plans around the arrival of their baby private. The couple hopes to share the good news with the public after they have privately celebrated their bundle of joy as a family. In 42 years, for the first time, an enwrapped Royal newborn won't be paraded on the steps of the Lindo Wing of St. Mary's Hospital. The New York Times characterized the entrance to the hospital as "the most stared at doors in the world."
"Short of having a birthing pool in Kensington Palace and having a flock of storks fly over, it's in the book. Having the baby at Lindo is what they do, they won't change it."
It looks like the British press was as sure as he was that when they heard the news, it wasn't pleasing. After all, Royal baby content means lots of money. British citizens feel entitled to an early, first glimpse at the nation's potential future heir.
