Prince Harry just admitted what gender he wants his and Meghan Markle’s first child to be.

While a pregnant Meghan is taking it easy by cutting back on public appearances during the couple’s royal tour, the Prince is still flat out. And he is more than happy to talk about the royal baby.

Kensington Palace announced the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were expecting their first child last Monday, just hours after they touched down in Australia.

It is believed Meghan is in her second trimester and is due in autumn.


A week after the news was made public, Harry has uh, given away that he wants his first child to be a girl.

During an event this morning a fan yelled out to Harry that she hopes the baby is a girl and Harry quickly turned to her and said “So do I!” as he walked away.

Lucky for us, this was all captured on video:


This is the first hint we’ve had of the royal baby’s gender… Except for when Prince Harry said he liked the name Harriet. Because, of course he does.

Kensington Palace is keeping strictly mum on the gender – which is general royal protocol – so we’ll just have to wait and see if Harry’s hopes become reality.
