Since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced that they’re expecting their first child together, royal fans have been dying to know the baby’s gender. And since the couple is currently on their first joint tour together in Fiji, fans have been taking every opportunity to congratulate Harry and Meghan on their upcoming bundle of joy.
One student did just that when he met Harry, 34, at the University of the South Pacific in Fiji. He told the royal that he thinks Meghan will be having a healthy baby boy, which seemed to surprise Harry and prompted him to respond, “Everyone else is predicting it’s going to be a girl!”
Harry even admitted to having the same prediction when he spoke with a royal fan in Australia a few days ago. During a walkabout, a woman yelled to him that she’s hoping he and Meghan, 37, welcome a baby girl and Harry replied, “So do I!” The adorable moment was captured on video by an Instagram account called @harry_meghan_updates.
Whether the royal baby is a boy or a girl, Harry and Meghan still have to decide on what they will name their first child. A few fans have speculated that they might name their potential daughter after Princess Diana or Harry could even name the baby after himself.
In Melbourne, Australia, he reportedly spoke with a new mom who told him that her daughter’s name was Harriet and Harry appeared to be very smitten with the moniker. According to Cosmopolitan, he told her, “That’s a great name!” so he might add Harriet to his long list of baby names to consider.
“We’ve been given a long list of names from everyone. We’re going to sit down and have a look at them,” Meghan previously told a royal fan during the tour. It won’t be long until they announce their baby’s name and gender and we can’t wait!
