Meghan Markle and Prince Harry latest news – New royal baby name will be DIANA after Meg’s subtle tribute, bookies think

MEGHAN Markle and Prince Harry will name their second baby Diana if it's a girl, bookies believe.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex revealed earlier this month that they were having a second baby, with a spokesman saying: "We can confirm that Archie is going to be a big brother."

The baby's sex has not been made public, although it is claimed Harry and Meghan have already been told.

Bookies have listed Diana as the runaway favourite name if the child is a girl, after the couple paid a subtle tribute to Harry's beloved late mother.

The couple announced Meghan's pregnancy exactly 37 years to the day after Princess Diana revealed to the world that she was pregnant with Harry - something royal fans were extremely quick to point out.

Betvictor ranked Diana as the most likely name for a girl at 7/1, followed by Alice (9/1), Grace (10/1), Isabella (12/1) and Alexandra (14/1)

Top contender if it's a boy is Charles at 10/1, followed by Thomas (11/1), Arthur (11/1), Edmund (16/1), and Phillip (20/1).

  • AMAZON PRIME AND NETFLIX OUT OF THE QUESTION

    It’s understood that ViacomCBS Global Distribution Group, which has the role of selling the interview to overseas broadcasters, wants the interview to be aired on a free-to-air channel.

    This means that platforms like Amazon Prime and Netflix - who has already signed a £112m deal with the Sussexes - would be out of the running.

    It was further reported that the preference of Meghan, 39, and Harry, 36, will be taken into account.

    Appearing before MPs, Horacio Gutierrez, head of global affairs and chief legal officer for Spotify, said it was hoped the high profile couple would attract people to the service.
