Prince Harry wants a baby girl.
The 34-year-old Duke of Sussex and wife, Meghan Markle, ventured out to Australia a week ago for their first joint royal visit and hours upon their entry, Kensington Palace announced the two are expecting their first baby in the spring. Following a busy week of engagements, the castle reported late on Saturday that the Duchess of Sussex would cut down her schedule. On Sunday, she went to two events but skipped one, an Invictus Games cycling rivalry, and Harry went alone.
At the occasion, a female fan shouted to him as he strolled in favor of the cycling way, saying,
“I hope it’s a girl!”
“So do I,” Harry replied, as seen in a viral fan video posted on Instagram.
A day after Kensington Palace announced Meghan’s pregnancy, Harry told fans in Australia, “We also genuinely couldn’t think of a better place to announce the upcoming baby…whether it’s a boy or a girl.”
Additionally during their visit a week ago, Prince Harry and Meghan talked with a lady named Jessica and played with her 5-month-old little girl, Harriet.
“As soon as I introduced my daughter to Harry, he said, ‘That’s a great name.'” Jessica said, according to British press reports. “Maybe they will choose it for their own child, which would be fun.”
It was reported last week that Meghan, 37, recently had a 12-week ultrasound. It is possible to to find out the sex of the baby two weeks early with a blood test.
