Plus, I haven't seen anything anywhere that confirms their child will be titled. (I believe it will be) There's been no confirmation or even talk of that from official sources that I've seen. From what I understand that's up to the parents to decide. Anne declined for her children. A smart move on her part too I think. Her children have the wealth and privilige but more freedom and less 'fish bowl' than titled royals.
There needs no confirmation. The baby is the son or daughter of a Duke. They will be Lady/Lord X, a son Earl of Dumbarton. And when their grandfather is king, they will be HRH Prince/Princess of GB. The only reason an announcement would be needed is if they were going to be denied the Prince/ss title when Charles is king, which would take LPs.

Anne didn't decline titles for her children. Her children would never had titles. It was her husband who declined the title. The children take their titles from their parents. Mark had no peerage, so his children had none.

Anne had three siblings and there was a large royal family only growing. Harry on the other hand is only one of 2 kids of the future king.

Anne did not decline a title for her children. They were never going to be Prince/Princess and because Mark declined the Earldom offered, Peter and Zara are not Lord/Lady.

Harry's children will be Lord/Lady immediately upon their birth-a girl will be Lady Name Mountbatten-Windsor, a first boy will be known as Earl of Dumbarton, additional boys will be Lord Name Mountbatten-Windsor.

As things stand now, unless something is changed, immediately upon Charles becoming King, Harry's children will become Prince/Princess as they will be male line grandchildren of the monarch.

Mary is a huge possibility. Very lovely, SLV.
It is also made up of letters from Meghan and Harry.

Mary has always been one of my favourites; and it's not widely used on younger generations anymore here (or at least in my part of England) so it would be really refreshing if Baby Sussex was given Mary as a first name should she be a girl. Lady Mary Mountbatten-Windsor does have a lovely ring to it
After the recent discussions I'd now like to see: Mary Elizabeth Alice or Mary Alice Doria - and as an Alice myself I wouldn't mind it at all if I shared my name with the newest royal!
For a boy I'd love to see Edmund Philip Arthur or Edmund Leopold Charles.

SLV, That is why, in a previous post I suggested Mary. Mary not only honors Queen Elizabeth II but also her grandmother Queen Mary.

Surely both Harry and Meghan are intelligent enough to know it would be a millstone round her neck and an even greater reason for media intrusion into the poor child's life.

Oh, I know that others suggested it. I had just not realised before that the Queen had this name too.

When you look at her name, the Queen was named after her mother, her grandmother and her great grandmother.

But isn't it great that those rules don't apply to Baby Sussex. Just imagine if it were the Danish heir . . . would they have called her Christianne or (heaven forfend) Frederika?

Oh, even worse . . . If they were Swedish we'd have to wait three months or more! 🤤

I think you're thinking of the Danes, who wait until the christening to announce the name. The Swedes announce the name a few days after birth.

Still hoping for Alice, Mary or Maude to be in the names if a girl.

Still hoping for David, Phillip or Alexander to be in the names if a boy.

Will there be a Sussex baby this week? Apparently odds are at 2/1.

And some odds on names--

And Queen Mary was Victoria Mary. Queen Victoria was Alexandrina Victoria. It was quite common for them to go by a secondary name. Edward VIII was usually called David.

No one would question if they named a child Mary, that it would be an honor to Queen Mary. Same with Alice.

Would be neat to see a Mary used and then May as a nickname.

Also would be neat to see Frances/Francis used.

As a first name Mary has a better chance. They are both quite old fashioned. But Mary at least they could pull a Harry and call her May or Molly or such.

I could see using Frances instead of Diana as a middle name though.

I am hoping we don't see a Diana repeat...Frances/Francis would be a nice way to nod to Diana.

As the Earl of Snowdon called his dau Margarita after his mother Princess Margaret, perhaps a girl child could be Alicia, after Philip's mr P Alice; just a thought...
