Those Prince Harry and Meghan Markle daughter name predictions are constantly circulating, and the royally obsessed have plenty of theories about the Duke and Duchess' second child. Some people are even beginning to wonder if the little one has already arrived! 

Earlier this year, we learned during Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's Oprah Winfrey interview that the two are expecting a girl, a baby sister for Archie.

"Just to have a boy and a girl, what more can we ask for?" Harry said during his sit-down with Winfrey. "We’ve got our family. We’ve got, you know, the four of us and our two dogs, and it’s great.”

From that moment on, fans have been anxious to learn all of the details—and make some up along the way, naturally. 

Is Meghan Markle having twin girls?

Are Prince Harry and Meghan Markle expecting two times the fun? The latest buzz surrounding the couple speculates that they are expecting twin girls, not just one.

Supposedly, a source revealed to Star Magazine that Palace staff overheard Prince Harry and Prince William discussing Meghan's pregnancy, and theories have escalated from there. 

Despite talk of twins, neither Harry or Meghan has publicly confirmed or denied this. They've only announced that they were having a (singular!) baby girl during that surprising Oprah interview

Meghan Markle due date predictions

When is Meghan Markle due? That's the million-dollar question amongst royal fans. 

Although Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have said that their little girl would be arriving this summer, they have not explicitly revealed her due date. 

The wait has apparently been long for some, as people are even beginning to ask: "Did Meghan Markle have her baby?" Considering the Duke and Duchess have remained fairly quiet, it doesn't seem like a surprise birth is out of the realm of possibilities.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle daughter name predictions

Although royal experts allege that the couple hasn't decided on a name quite yet, one thing is for certain: there will be a special meaning behind their selection. 

According to US Weekly, Diana is among the possibilities, but it is probably unlikely, given the pressure it would place on the child. It is in the cards for a middle name, although the baby's cousin, Princess Charlotte, also shares the middle name Diana after Prince William and Harry's late mother. 

Other royal experts believe that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are actually planning to honor the Queen with their name choice. Queen Elizabeth II was unable to pronounce her own name as a little girl and would call herself "Lilibet," a sweet nickname that was also taken up by the late Prince Philip for his bride. Experts believe the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will name their daughter Lily to honor the baby's great-grandmother. 

Meghan Markle baby shower: Is the Duchess of Sussex celebrating?

Although Meghan Markle celebrated Archie's arrival with a star-studded baby shower in 2019, she and Prince Harry have chosen not to have a party ahead of their daughter's birth.

In light of what is going on with the world right now—and whether or not people can gather safely—the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have chosen to remain focused on their humanitarian efforts and preparing for their second child's arrival quietly. 

While the world continues to make predictions, the Duke and Duchess are subtly dropping clues about their expanding clan. Meghan Markle’s feminist necklace made headlines during her virtual Vax Live concert appearance. The piece, the "Woman Power Charm Necklace" from Awe, is believed to be a way to celebrate the couple's second child.

"The Woman Power Goddess Charm combines the female Venus symbol with a protesting fist. It is embellished with a genuine purple amethyst, a protective stone associated with abundance and enlightenment," according to the brand.

During Vax Live, Meghan Markle took the time to discuss the impact that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on women. She even made mention of her unborn daughter and future generations. 

Markle said: “When we think of her, we think of all the young women and girls around the globe who must be given the ability and support to lead us forward."

She continued: "Their future leadership depends on the decisions we make and the actions we take now to set them up, and set all of us up, for a successful, equitable, compassionate tomorrow. We want to make sure that as we recover, we recover stronger. That as we rebuild, we rebuild together."

We still have some time to go before everything unfolds, but we're anxious to see what's in store for Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, Archie, and the new baby (babies?) on the way.
