Harry and Meghan Markle ‘have Diana high up on list of baby names’, says expert

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are keeping 'Diana' near the top of their list of names for their soon-to-be-born baby girl, according to a royal expert.

The royal couple announced on Valentine's Day 2021 that they were expecting their second child.

The announcement is believed to have been a heartfelt nod to Harry's late mum, Princess Diana, who announced her own pregnancy with Harry just a day before Valentine's Day.

Now Katie Nicholl, a royal expert, has spoken out as the Duke and Duchess get closer to welcoming their second child, which they revealed to be a baby girl in their explosive Oprah interview.

Katie Nicholl believes that Harry and Meghan have "probably got a very good idea of what they're going to call their little girl".

She told Entertainment Weekly: "What we know about this couple is that they do put a lot of time and thought into names."

She continues: "I think many people are expecting that Diana is going to be one of her names. I absolutely think they'll want to include Diana as one of the names for their little girl. Maybe not as her first name, but I'm sure it's very high up on the list in terms of a second Christian name."

It has also been announced that their will be a statue dedicated to Harry's late mum, the Princess of Wales, to mark her 60th birthday.

The official unveiling of her statue is set to take place on July 1, which would have been Diana's birthday, at Kensington Palace.

Harry and Meghan welcomed their first son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten Windsor, back on 6 May 2019, who is now almost 2 years old.

Nicholl adds: "I think that's quite simply because, for Harry, it would be a wonderful way to pay tribute to his mother. Of course, the Cambridges gave Charlotte Diana as a middle name, but I don't think that precludes Harry and Meghan from doing exactly the same thing."
