Yes, that's true, but the present Duke is an active patron of the Richard III Society and it's not beyond the realms of possibility that one or another of his parents had an interest in Richard III. After all, (Prince) Richard of Gloucester, as he was before his brother's death, has an evocative sound.

But some historians believe "that particular history" was rewritten by Tudor propagandists and Richard III wasn't guilty of the crimes he has been accused of. While I don't think the current Richard Duke of Gloucester was named for Richard III, I should point out he is patron of the Richard III Society and attended the re-interment services held at Leicester Cathedral in 2015.

I would just love to see them name their first after the royal grandparents that have made their marriage welcoming: Elizabeth and Philip. No one does use them as first names and I truly believe it would be wonderful. Middle names could incorporate their own parents.

Exactly so I can't see that they will be likely to give the name to anyone else, at present. and certainly not after the D of Windsor, who is harldy likely to be anyone's "favourite uncle" in the RF....

After all, Louis, Eugenie, Andrew, and Prince Michael all get their given names from non-British royals.
More like after people that were are part of their kinships, extended or not, British Royal or not,

Louis, after Earl Louis Mountbatten of Burma, Prince Philip's Uncle Dickie
Eugenie, whose full name is Eugenie Victoria Helena, after, Edna Queen of Spain, born Victoria Eugenie of Battenberg, Daughter of Princess Beatrice of the UK, granddaughter of Queen Victoria, and after Princess Helena, another daughter of Queen Victoria
Andrew, After Prince Philip's father, Prince Andrew of Greece and Danemark
Micheal after Grand Duke Michael Alexandrovich of Russia, who was one of his relative on his mother side. On a side note, His full name is Michael George Charles Franklin. Why Franklin some may ask, well US President Franlkin Delano Roosevelt was one of his Godfather

Might be nice to see some Greek or Russian names from Philip's side. Theodora, Nicholas, Alexander, Helen, Natalia, etc.

Third try:

For a girl my guess is Lady Alice Jeanette Frances Mountbatten-Windsor
For a boy: Victor Philip James, Earl of Dumbarton

Jeanette is after Meghan's grandmother and James after her grandmother's father while also a royal name.

While Jeanette is lovely I don't think she will over look her mother. They are so close. I'd be shocked not to see Doria.

Thomas is another matter. Another male family name from Meghan's family more likely. Perhaps from her father's side while avoiding Thomas.

Interesting that there are more votes than expected for twins - is there any history of twins in the Markle or Ragland families?

Twins tend to be more frequent in women over a certain age (35).

Ah, that's interesting, I wasn't aware of that (I just presumed twins were only possible if either family had a history of them or if the couple in question conceived via IVF).

How can twins be predicted if KP has already stated that they are expecting a baby?

This has been my thinking all along but there are many who predict twins. I honestly think if she were pregnant with twins that would have been announced just in the event she had to miss engagements or go on leave early. That isn't saying people who are pregnant with twins don't carry to term just fine but not all do. They were pretty transparent about Kate's difficulties due to the fact she was missing things. IMO they'd probably go that same route if Meghan were having twins.

Not that I think she'll have twins, but they wouldn't announce that just for something that could potentially happen months down the line. In fact, we don't even have the month of her due date yet. Usually that's announced later. All we know is Spring. They usually draw back on engagements a few weeks before due date. They aren't going to put it that close. And if somehow she goes into labor even before that, I'm sure everyone would understand if she had to cancel last minute. Regardless of one or two babies.

Who knows!

With that said, I'm still of the belief it's just one little one in there. I, personally, don't see the big deal in telling it if she were having twins.

I should say that if she were having twins, they would delay the anouncment. I don't really see why this idea has cropped up anyway..

[...]
Indeed, and although they did not hold British royal titles, Louis Mountbatten and Princess Victoria Eugenie of Battenberg were British subjects at birth and included as members of the British royal family as child/grandchild of a princess of the United Kingdom, much like Peter Phillips and his daughters. For the marriage of Victoria Eugenie with the King of Spain, the marriage treaty was made between the governments of Britain and Spain.

Agreed! I mean, to each their own by all means, but I am not exactly sure what sparked the certainty in so many people. I've seen the discussion in several other places too.
