Baby Sussex

Today we got our first glimpse of Baby Sussex.  He's adorable and we're so happy for Harry and Meghan, who are delighted with being parents.

I was worried that a frenzy was building, due to the way people were reacting to the Sussex's desire for privacy regarding their baby's birth.  I think people over reacted, but that's the nature of people on social media these days isn't it?

Now, the wait for Baby Sussex's name.  Any guesses?

I think Philip will be one of the names, if not the first name.  Harry is very close to his grandfather, and none of the other children have Philip in their name.

I also think they could diffuse the complaints of her half siblings, and father and use his name Thomas as one of the names.

Also I think, because Harry is close to Diana's side of the family, and they made the point in their announcement of saying that Diana's siblings had been informed of the birth (not just the Queen and Royal family), they may use the name Spencer.

Philip Thomas Spencer would be an appropriate name. Of course there are other family names that are not as common - David and John come to mind.  

The Queen has 8 great-grandchildren - Savannah and Isla Philips, Mia and Lena Tindall, and Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.  The only traditional royal names are William and Kate's children, and William will be king one day.  Harry and Meghan could go non traditional with his names. 

I think we'll know in the next few days.

I'd love to hear what you think in the comments!


  1. I do like that combination of names. We'll see! You couldn't miss the joy spread all over Harry's face when he was interviewed after his sweet!

  2. Spencer!

    Took my breath away. I wouldn't be surprised if they did that.

  3. So now that they have named him, what do you think? Where did the name Archie come from? Hmm... curious minds want to know.

  4. Phew! I’m just glad that his name is not Sussex. I wish the new family well.
