Are the Horses at Windsor Castle a Clue to the Mysterious Baby Sussex Name?

Meghan Markle gave birth to a baby boy on May 6. Prince Harry announced the exciting baby news outside Frogmore Cottage, but there is still one big question surrounding the baby. What is the baby’s name?

Fans believe they might have found a hint into what it could be through Prince Harry’s appearance. Here is everything you need to know about the latest Baby Sussex theory.

It was previously believed the baby’s name was revealed on the royal website

The baby name has yet to be announced, but people have been keeping an eye out for clues. Many believed the potential names for the baby were already leaked by the Royal Family’s website.

People use the fact that there are landing pages on the website for royal family members. Fans started looking to see if any landing pages have been reserved for the new baby under different names. After testing multiple names, some came up with the theory that Arthur, Alexander, or James are being considered.

Buckingham Palace claimed redirects were set up a long time ago

In response to the rumored potential names, Buckingham Palace gave a statement. The statement put doubt on the landing page theory.

“A large number of search term redirects were set up some time ago on This was in order to improve user experience. For guidance you will note that other names preceded by ‘prince’ or ‘princess’ produce the same result,” a spokesperson told Yahoo UK.

The royal couple has since announced that Markle has given birth and the baby is a boy. However, the baby’s name is still a mystery and now there is a new theory.

Some believe the horse named “Sir John” could be the baby’s name

Prince Harry stood outside the Windsor Castle stables where people could clearly see the names of two horses behind him. One of them has a plaque reading “George” outside the stable. That name could be after Kate Middleton and Prince William’s son.

The other one is making royal fans suspicious. The stable on the right has the name “Sir John” on a plaque. Some people believe this could be a reveal of the baby’s name since there currently isn’t a royal named John, according to Page Six.

Prince Harry did talk about baby names during his appearance before the stables. “We’re still thinking about names. The baby’s a little bit overdue, so we’ve had a bit of time to think about it, but that’s the next bit,” he reportedly said. “We’ll be seeing you guys in two days’ time as planned, so everyone can see the baby.”

Only an official announcement will prove or disprove this latest theory. It might be a little far fetched to think the baby will share the same name as the horse, but it’s also a common name that could be used. Fans will have to wait to find out for sure.
