And he will soon be a father, what coincidence.
Prince Harry and his wife Meghan have just announced that they are currently expecting their first child, who is said to arrive sometime in spring.
And it seems that the future-dad is already thinking about baby names. It was revealed during one of his walkabouts in Melbourne in Thursday.
After spending 25 minutes greeting and talking to well wishers as well as accepting a ton of sweet gifts such as cuddly toys, flags newspaper cuttings and handmade trinkets, the Duke and Duchess stopped to meet with five-and-a-half-month-old Harriet Bonaddido and talk to her mom, Jessica.
The 28-year-old mother said: “As soon as I introduced my daughter to Harry he said, ‘that’s a great name’. Maybe they will choose it for their own child which would be fun.”
Aw! Of course, the Prince is most likely alluding to the similarity to his own name – and we doubt he was giving any clues as to his own choices.
Jessica added: “Meghan was right behind him and was playfully tickling her toes and said how sweet it was that I’d brought her out today.”
Eh, a fitting name for a royal, however I think the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will go for something more modern.
The royal couple is having a great time down under, and have spent most of their time meeting plenty of children and young people, showing their natural affinity with youngsters. Now that the news of the pregnancy is finally out, both of them have talked freely about the upcoming arrival.
On Thursday, they discussed possible baby names, after they were questioned about their thoughts on baby names by an excited group of schoolchildren, who joined the couple on a short tram ride to the beach.
Charlie Wolf, a 12-year-old student from Middle Park primary school, asked if the couple had any names for their baby. The children said Meghan replied with: “We’ve been given a long list of names from everyone, we’re going to sit down and have a look at them.”
Ella Burns, a 12-year-old pupil from Albert Park primary school added: “She said that she hadn’t thought of one as it was still quite early.”
Earlier in the trip, Harry even commenting on the gender of the baby. He concluded a speech on Tuesday by saying: “And we also genuinely couldn’t think of a better place to announce the upcoming baby, whether it’s a boy or a girl, so thank you very, very much.”
The Duchess has also spoken about her first pregnancy, stating that is was going “pretty well”. But she is suffering a little from tiredness.
This is the very first official tour for Meghan, who during the tour, told a fellow mother on Wednesday that so far she is “running on adrenaline”. You just keep doing what you do Meghan!
