People Think Buckingham Palace 'Revealed' Prince Harry And Meghan Markle's Baby Name

People Think Buckingham Palace 'Revealed' Prince Harry And Meghan Markle's Baby Name

While we all wait with baited breath for the arrival of the next royal baby, some think they've worked out what Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are planning on calling him/her.

Royal watchers believe Buckingham Palace has dropped a huge clue over potential baby names by 'reserving' three URLs on its website for Prince James, Prince Arthur and Prince Alexander.

All senior members of the royal family have their own page on the official royal family website. For instance Prince Harry's is 'www.royal.uk/prince-harry' and Meghan Markle's is 'www.royal.uk/duchess-sussex'.

But if you type in a royal who doesn't actually exist, for example Prince Graham, you'll be taken to 'page not found'.

However, if you do the same for these three potential names - Prince James, Prince Arthur and Prince Alexander - you're instead redirected back to the homepage. Suspicious, right?

It's unclear if any other names have been reserved on the site ahead of the birth, although it seems like just these three for now - which are interestingly all boys' names.

However, the palace says the search term redirects are to improve user experience.

"A large number of search term redirects were set up some time ago on royal.uk. This was in order to improve user experience," the palace said in a statement to USA TODAY on Tuesday.

However, there were similar reports floating around last year too.

Ahead of Prince Louis' birth last year, it was also revealed that the website"reserved" a URL for the name 'Prince Albert' - one of the monikers Prince William and Kate Middleton were believed to be considering for their third tot together.

When typing in 'www.royal.uk/prince-albert', users were taken to an 'accessed denied' page in 2018, although this name now takes you to Queen Victoria's husband Prince Albert.

Obviously, Kate and William didn't choose this name, but it still doesn't rule out the names James, Alexander and Arthur for Meghan and Harry's baby.
