The child won't be Prince/ss until Charles becomes King unless the Queen issues letters patent deeming them HRH Prince/ss of the United Kingdom. Right now, the letters patent state that children and grandchildren (in the male line) of the monarch are born with the HRH Princ/ess but it doesn't apply to great grandchildren.

The Queen issued letters patent specifically for William's children.

I think we've seen that the younger generation of royals are not very interested in saddling their children with four given names. Three names seems to suffice.

Henry for a boy?
Dad’s official name that isn’t used much. It’s a nice name.

These names are the ones that I'd choose but Harry isn't always conventional & could go for something unusual like Princess Anne did with Zara.

Alice Diana Elizabeth
or
Charles Philip Henry

I suspect Harry would love to call a daughter Diana as a first name but might be anxious that there would be constant media comparisons that could be a burden to the child. I don't think a little Charles would have that as much.

Honestly, I prefer Frances far more than Diana if they are going to honor Harry’s mother. One, I just like the name. Two, it’s a more subtle tribute where the press wouldn’t be making the obvious point ALL.THE.TIME.

I had that concern about Charlotte's name, but it doesn't seem to be a focus of anything. Just the normal (sometimes OTT) Diana/grandmother stuff.

I'm going to go way out on a limb and suggest a name that was the middle name of Diana's great grandmother. Ellen.

It'd be a salute to Harry's American origins and an unique name for the British royal family without being totally unheard of.

Given that next year is the 200th birthday of Queen Victoria, I wonder if Victoria or Alexandrina would be used if it’s a girl.

Franklin Peter Charles David
Edmond Charles Henry Philip
John Franklin Charles

Victoria Frances Mary Camilla
Frances Eliza Meghan Loyce
Rosalind Mary Elizabeth

A girl born on 9th March
Godparents: Serena Williams, Sarah Spencer, Samuel Chatto, two friends and Catherine

I think it’d be nice if the Sussexes involved both Diana and Camilla in the bmame one way or another. Harry has spojen about the false evil stepmother narrative the press tried to paint with Camilla before. It’d be nice to honor both his mother and stepmother in the name Along with Meghan’s mother.

Random thoughts,

I think they will pick a name used by royal in past but not living relatives or ancestors from recent generations as the first name, and their parents/grandparents/great grandparents' names as the middle names.

First name: Norah, Edwina, Adelaide or Victoria for girl; Arthur, Edmund, Alexander for boy (I just go through Wikipedia and pick some names of previous British princes/princesses that sound nice )

Middle name: Frances, Loyce (mother), Elizabeth, Jeanette (grandmother) for girl, Philip, Alvin (grandfather), Albert, James (great grandfather) for boy.

I'd say hightly unlikely that they will give the name Charles - Victoria is not likely but more possibele.
