As of yet, the baby’s name remains unknown, with Harry confirming that he and Meghan hadn’t yet settled upon what their boy will be called.
“Still thinking about names,” he said. “The baby’s a little bit overdue, so we’ve had a little bit of time to think about it, but, yeah, that’s the next bit. But for us, I think, we’ll be seeing you guys in probably two days time, as planned, as a family, to be able to share it with you guys, so everyone can see the baby.”
