Meghan Markle’s baby will face royal title SNUB if Duchess of Sussex gives birth to a girl
The Duchess of Sussex is expecting the Baby Sussex either in late April or early May. But Royal historian Robert Lacey revealed the royals will treat the baby differently if it is a girl. Presenter Fiona Foster explained: “There are some traditions that stay true to form.
“And this leads to an interesting conundrum for Meghan who is the only person described as a feminist on the official royal website.
“If her child is a girl rather than a boy, there will be a difference in how they’re treated.”
Mr Lacey elaborated: “If the baby is a boy, it is likely to take on one of Prince Harry’s lesser titles.
“He’s ‘Duke of Sussex’ but he’s got a lesser title of ‘Earl on Dumbarton’.
“So maybe they’ll choose to call the baby the Earl of Dumbarton.”
But he added: “No such option for the daughter.”
As Ms Foster added, no hereditary titles pass down to the daughter.
Leading bookmaker Coral has taken a flurry of bets over the last couple of days on Meghan Markle and Prince Harry giving birth to their first child over the Easter weekend (Friday, 19th April – Monday, 22nd April) and as a result, now go 2-1 (from 4-1).
The firm continues to see hundreds of bets daily on the name of the child where Elizabeth is the 6-1 favourite, Diana can be backed at 8-1, while Albert and Philip are both 12-1.
In their gender betting, a girl is the odds-on favourite at 4-7 and a boy is 13-10.
“The odds continue to shorten on the Royal baby being delivered over Easter which would make the long bank holiday weekend even more special this year,” said Coral’s John Hill.
“Elizabeth remains the most popular selection in our name betting, although we have also seen a lot of interest in Diana, while many punters are not ruling out Meghan giving birth to twins,” added Hill.
