The Duke and Duchess of Sussex (commonly referred to as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle) are about to welcome their first child.\nThe baby will occupy a unique position in the strange world that is British royalty. It will be the child of an American former actress and the eighth great-grandchild of Queen Elizabeth.\nHere's everything we know so far about "Baby Sussex."\nALSO READ: Opinion: All The Reasons Why Toronto Is Better Than Montreal\nTL;DR Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will welcome their first child in the coming weeks. Here are the details about its birth and life thereafter that we know so far.\nView this post on Instagram 🇨🇦🇬🇧 The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are marking #CommonwealthDay by celebrating the diverse community of Canadians living around the UK.

Elizabeth and Diana, after the child's paternal great-grandmother and grandmother, are top contenders for a girl. Alice and Victoria are also in the running.\nClassic royal names are also likely for a boy: George, Charles, Albert.\nThough, it would be cool if the couple mixed it up with something either really edgy or too classically royal. We are rooting for the name Egbert (after an early medieval Saxon king), which is basically gender-neutral at this point.\nView this post on Instagram Their Royal Highnesses see more of the vibrant Moroccan culture – joining a cooking demonstration with Chef Moha and children, who were cooking traditional dishes. Many of the children are from underprivileged backgrounds, and are part of a scheme to help open up the restaurant industry to young people. Children were also making Cherine Mallah’s Moroccan Pancakes from ‘Together: Our Community Cookbook’ – the charity cookbook, supported by The Duchess, which celebrates the power of cooking to bring communities together. #RoyalVisitMorocco #CookTogether. 📷image 2 PA / image 1 +3 @kensingtonroyal A post shared by Kensington Palace (@kensingtonroyal) on Feb 25, 2019 at 5:49am PST\nIf it's a boy, it will likely be "Earl of Dumbarton"\nMultiple sources, including The Express and The Telegraph, anticipate that a baby boy will be named Earl Of Dumbarton — which is frankly a pretty unfortunate name.\nA girl will still be subject to the antiquated, patriarchal scheme of British aristocratic naming and may be denied a title until marriage.\nThe baby will be an American citizen — and will have to pay U.S. taxes\nBecause Meghan is an American citizen, her child, by law, will also be an American citizen. That will also make the chld subject to U.S. tax laws, which apply regardless of country of residence, according to CBS News. The child could eventually renounce its American citizenship, however.\nView this post on Instagram Wishing all of our followers a Happy New Year and a fantastic 2019!

Mayhew looks for innovative ways to reduce the number of animals in need through pro-active community and educational initiatives and preventative veterinary care. Among the people she met was Wully, a formerly homeless pet refuge service user, and his two dogs Azzy and Gallis – The Duchess found out about the different ways Mayhew’s animal welfare officers have supported Wully and his pets over the past 11 years. Her Royal Highness also met Roobarb the dog, who is part of Mayhew’s dog therapy programme TheraPaws, which puts smiles on the faces of vulnerable individuals. The Duchess met volunteers who dedicate their time to Mayhew community programmes, including the trap, neuter and return programme, which controls and cares for the feral cat communities in London. And Her Royal Highness was also able to meet the team behind Mayhew’s international work, which includes an overseas vet training programme in countries like India and Afghanistan to help improve animal welfare.

Good thing this child will be royal. Baby Sussex is sure to become a stereotypically bumbling and pretentious British aristocrat in a tweed jacket.\nIt will have a modern upbringing\nIf Meghan and Harry follow the example of William and Kate, Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, they will break with royal tradition and place their child in schools to socialize with other children, rather than locking them away with private tutors.\nMeghan and Harry's work style also suggests a more modern approach to parenting. The couple is currently in the process of founding its own royal household, distinct from the daily operations of the central court and complete with its very own rule-breaking Instagram page.\nSo far, it seems Meghan and Harry aren't afriad to defy protocol, engage with the general public, and take on some more politically-charged initiatives. Meghan, in particular, already has a reputation as a hard worker with little patience for the protocol that defines the behaviours of royal women. Meghan and Harry also seem to want to abandon royal formality — they signed their first Instagram post "Harry & Meghan."\nA progressive parenting style would fit in with these themes. Even before the birth of the child, it seems its upbringing will represent a break with the past. Meghan and Harry have opted for a private birth over the public spectacle that surrounded the births of George, Charlotte, and Louis.\nView this post on Instagram Probably the Sussex will move to Frogmore Cottage in March ☀️ 🍃 Honestly I thought they will move earlier but I think March is a good time to move💫☺️It‘s a month before Baby Sussex‘ arrival so thecouple has enough time to prepare everything 👶🏻❤️ Btw tomorrow we will see the parents-to be as they‘re visiting Bristol☺️☺️ #dukeandduchessofsussex #dukeofsussex #princeharry #harryofwales #harryofsussex #duchessofsussex #duchessmeghan #meghanmarkle #babysussex #moving #frogmorecottage #windsor #bristol A post shared by Cambridges and Sussexes✨ (@duchessesofuk) on Jan 31, 2019 at 2:22pm PST\nIt will grow up in Frogmore Cottage\nMeghan and Harry's secluded home also points to a more private life for their new family. Frogmore Cottage, which is actually a mansion, is not far from other royal residences but lightyears away in terms of its size and design. The home appears much more modest, for example, than the soaring halls of Kensington and Buckingham Palaces.\nMeghan is also reportedly determined to personalize the estate. Elle reports that the Sussexes plan to grow some of their own food.\nStay tuned for more news about the royal baby!
