Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, could give birth on June 10, that is the birthday of Prince Philip of England, who passed away on April 9 at the age of 99. And the bookmakers are betting on the name.
Meghan would be closer to giving birth than we think. According to some rumors, the daughter could be born on Thursday 10 June, the same day that Prince Philip was born who if he were alive would have celebrated 100 years of life. The Dukes of Sussex announced their second pregnancy with a post on Instagram and soon after confirmed it was a baby girl in the now infamous interview with Oprah Winfrey on March 7, but never revealed when Archie’s little sister would be born. . The idea that it could arise between late June and late July was a mass media speculation based on the few existing photos of Meghan pregnant.
While waiting for the happy event, the name was taken: according to “The Sun”, the most likely name is Diana, in honor of Harry’s mother, followed by Lily or the nickname of Queen Elizabeth II and finally Philippa, a tribute to her grandfather Philip, who died on April 9 last.
However, although suggestive, the idea of calling her Philippa or Pip is to be excluded because it reminds too much of Pippa, that is the name of the sister of the future Queen Kate Middleton, for which Meghan has shown that she does not feel great sympathy. “If the baby was born for Philip’s birthday it would be so special, it would be a nice way to remember his beloved grandfather,” a source told the newspaper. But the bookmakers are betting on Diana, quite discounted and quoted 4-1, or on a surprise name as it was for Archie who is now 2 years old.
Speaking of names, the nickname with which Prince Charles called his daughter-in-law and former actress came out. The writer Christine-Marie Liwag Dixon revealed it to the “Daily Express”: “It seems that Prince Charles had a lot of respect for Meghan’s resilient nature to the point of giving her the secret nickname ‘tungsten‘”. It is a great compliment because tungsten is the hardest and heaviest metal on the planet, it resists stress, high temperatures and oxidation, therefore it is the recognition of the strong and inflexible nature of the Markle.
But even the Duchess of Sussex has an Achilles heel: next week “The Bench” will be released, her first children’s book, which she dedicated to her husband Harry: “To the man and boy who makes my heart beat” .
