News of the #royalbaby broke out and the internet lost it!
Just yesterday, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry announced that they would be expecting a baby in the Spring of 2019.

Her Royal Highness The Queen of England has yet to bestow a title for Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s first born. If Queen Elizabeth does not bestow a title for the #royalbaby then the eldest will likely adopt one of his father’s subsidiary peerage titles.
If their first born is a boy then he would become the Earl of Dumbarton and if they have a daughter, she would be called Lady Mountbatten-Windsor. Subsequent sons would be named Lord Mountbatten-Windsor. While Queen Elizabeth did make an exception for Prince William and Kate’s children, it is unclear if she will bend the rules to allow Prince Harry and Meghan’s children to be princes and princesses.
According to Express, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced their pregnancy to the royal family during Princess Eugenie’s wedding (how glad are we that Princess Eugenie isn’t like Monica Geller and accuse Meghan Markle of “stealing her thunder?).
