This Very Unusual Girls' Name Is The New Hot Favourite For Harry And Meghan's Baby

As the birth of Baby Sussex approaches, a flurry of last-minute bets have been placed on one unusual first name being chosen for Meghan and Harry's new arrival - making the Italian moniker one of the hot favourites to be given to the newest royal.

Ever since Meghan Markle first announced that she was expecting back in October, punters have been flocking to the bookies to place bets on what the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will name their firstborn. Whilst traditional royal names such as Arthur, Albert and Elizabeth have all been given good odds, some reckon that Harry and Meghan will opt for a more unusual name for their child.

As Harry and Meghan's baby will be seventh in line to the throne behind Charles, William, George, Charlotte, Louis and Harry - and therefore highly unlikely to ever become King or Queen - the royal couple are able to be more free with their naming choice than Wills and Kate were.

Less traditional names that have been suggested as possibilities for Harry and Meghan's baby include April, Joseph and Grace, whilst many believe that the couple will choose Diana in tribute to Harry's late mother if the baby is a girl - despite the fact this is already one of Princess Charlotte's middle names.

Now, though, many people seem to believe that Prince Harry will pay tribute to his mother in a different way - by choosing a name she adored and would have used had either of her children been girls...
