Madison & Prentice for our future King's grandchildren? Seriously?

I don't see a name like Madison or Prentice. The child is going to be a British royal...

These are suitably American names, to reflect their US and UK heritage.

The Queen has a great grandchild called Savannah.

No, I am not sure that Prentice isn’t going to be bullied on the playground, just as I am not sure George is. That said, I am reasonably sure Charlotte will not be bullied.

Savannah doesn't have a title.

I doubt George will, at least not for his name. Prentice as a name on the other hand...

I think they'll go with simple names for their children that won't have a connection to anyone else as in being named after or such. Something, perhaps like Jane for a girl and Jack for a boy.

Maybe I'm old fashioned but to me it would sound very strange to have the future Duke of Sussex with anything other than a traditionally British or royal first name (subsequent names don't matter that much).

I am not sure these things matter very much these days.

The queen has an untitled granddaughter who is a totally private citizen named Savannah. Baby Sussex is not in the same league.

Madison and Prentice scream preppy nouveau riche names, not royal grandkids.

I also highly doubt a son will share two names with George

'Prentice' or 'Madison' - VERY best laugh/snigger of today...

Its possible, he might since they do use a lot of similar middle names, because part of royal naming is to honour other members of the family. Most of the queen's great granddaughters have Elizabeth.. There's Lena Eliz TIndal, Isla Elizabeth Phillips, Charlotte Eliz of Cambridge.. and W and Kate have given the name Louis to the new son, though its one of George's names.
However while they mgith put in an American sounding name as a second or third, I can't see them giving one as a first name..

What a wonderful opportunity for Meghan to help modernise the monarchy

When has Meghan ever said that she wants to modernize the monarchy? I wish people would stop attributing the made up tabloid BS to Meghan!

Wouldn't giving the children American style first names be a big change? And a sign of modernising…

I would imagine that both Harry and Meghan would agree on the first name of their child whatever it will be. As this child will slip further down the line of succession, their parents have leeway to name their child what they want... including honoring the heritage of the child's mother.

I think they should be able to reach some kind of compromise.. a Bible name..would be acceptable even if a bit unusual...
