The Duke and Duchess of Sussex almost chose a different name for their eldest child.
According to royal expert Katie Nicholl, the Duchess of Cambridge had her "heart set on" this name Alexander, but they instead decided to use it as his middle name.
The Times reports that they enlisted the help of their pet dog Lupo to decide the name, putting pieces of paper with the options on the floor, and choosing the one he went to.
