Royal Baby: Name, gender, birth location of Harry and Meghan's child revealed

What would the founding fathers think?

This isn't the only royal family tradition Markle is reportedly shaking up. The Duke is pleased he can attend today's Service, as planned. There are endless opportunities for toothy grins, from the very first shots we're bound to see following the baby's birth, to the christening, royal engagements and (fingers crossed!) a few candid Instagram snaps on the new Sussex account!

This is one thing all royal watchers look forward to with a new baby! As Kate was unaccompanied by her husband, she was joined by her brother-in-law.

Prince William and Kate Middleton have been married since 2011 and have three kids together - Princess Charlotte, 3, and Princes George, 5 and Louis, 1.

Harry's attendance led bookies to shorten the odds on the baby being born in May.

In the past, Harry and Meghan would have arrived before William and Kate, but the royals tend to only follow this strict protocol when the Queen or Prince Charles is present.

After Harry and Meghan released a statement saying they meant to keep the birth of their first child private, many had been speculating the former Suits actress may had already given birth.

That also makes the baby's American parentage less of a pressing issue, since it would take a series of tragedies to hit William's children for Baby Sussex to become monarch.

That hasn't kept the British media from speculating that Meghan will choose an American as a nanny - Mary Poppins be damned! - and possibly even put a man, or manny, in that crucial role.

Joe Little, managing editor of Majesty Magazine, claims that many people are welcoming of changing royal traditions. The publication also noted that although the royal family does not normally comment on cheating and divorce rumors, some lawyers from the palace denied the reports this time by calling them "false speculations".
