Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are expected to welcome their first baby in April after announcing their pregnancy in October 2018 – but what are the latest odds on the baby’s name?

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have made no secret of the fact they’re both very excited to become parents for the first time this year.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced the news they were pregnant in October 2018, only five months after they married at Windsor Castle in May.

While happy to share some details of the pregnancy, Kate Middleton’s brother and sister-in-law have remained tight lipped about any potential baby names.

Baring in mind the couple are not planning on finding out the sex of the baby, the public have been left questioning if the couple will opt for a traditional name or not.
