Oops! The Royal Family May Have Accidentally Revealed Meghan Markle’s Baby Name

As Meghan Markle’s due date rapidly approaches, predictions surrounding the new royal baby are swirling like crazy. The official royal website has only added more fuel to the fire with what some are calling a massive flub.

U.K. publication The Express discovered something fishy that just might be a major clue. A little background info first: The royal website (Royal.uk) hosts official pages for major royal family members (kids included). For example, Princess Charlotte’s page has the URL Royal.uk/Princess-Charlotte. Apparently, through a painstaking series of trial an error, The Express came to realize that similar URLs for potential royal baby names Arthur, James, and Alexander have been created — well, sort of.

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.

The URLs Royal.uk/Prince-Arthur, Royal.uk/Prince-James, and Royal.uk/Prince-Alexander reroute to the main website, which might imply they’ve been reserved by the royal family for a new member, leaving fans to believe that the Duke and Duchess are having a boy and have narrowed his name down to Arthur, James or Alexander.

But the palace has been quick to shut down the speculation, telling Yahoo UK, “A large number of search term redirects were set up some time ago on Royal.uk. This was in order to improve user experience. For guidance, you will note that other names preceded by ‘prince’ or ‘princess’ produce the same result.”


It’s tough to decipher whether or not this is true, but either way, royal fans won’t have to keep waiting much longer. Meghan Markle is said to be due any day now, so all will be revealed soon.
