The Real Reason Royal Fans Are Now Convinced Baby Sussex Is a Boy

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle could announce the birth of their child any day. But despite the due date being so close, people are still trying their best to learn the inside details about the baby. And now, the royal family may have accidentally given away some major information about Meghan and Harry’s little one, convincing fans the two are having a boy.

Meghan and Harry have kept their pregnancy details under wraps

If there’s one thing the royal family can do well, it’s keep a secret. For months, Meghan and Harry have kept the baby details hidden from the public, leaving everyone to speculate every little thing about Baby Sussex. When the couple announced the pregnancy last October, the only detail given was that he or she would arrive in the spring. Later, Meghan let it slip that the baby was due in late April, but now that it’s May, people are questioning whether her due date was true. The couple hasn’t revealed the baby’s gender or any potential names, either.

The public has gone back and forth about the baby’s gender

Since Meghan and Harry have chosen to keep details private (and they suggest they don’t know the baby’s gender), the public has played its own guessing game. There have been rumors that Baby Sussex will be a boy, but Meghan’s New York City baby shower led some to think she was having a girl. Plus, the bets placed were in favor of a girl. But nobody has been able to figure out exactly what the two are having, nor what they might potentially name the child. Some feel that if they welcome a girl, they will name her Diana.

The royal website had some explaining to do after certain URLs hinted that Baby Sussex is a boy

Some seriously obsessed fans actually figured out that certain royal names worked as URLs for the royal website. For example, entering the website of the royal family followed by “/prince-arthur/” or “/prince-alexander” sent users back to the homepage. However, non-royal names, such as “Joey” or “Fred” would lead to a page that didn’t exist. This led people to think the royal family had already taken steps to secure a URL for the new baby, essentially giving away both the gender and potential names.

Despite the find, according to various media outlets, the royal family insists that it created several URLs of that sort ages ago to create a more user-friendly experience; the names are only redirects and supposedly don’t indicate anything about the royal baby.

Meghan and Harry likely won’t announce the birth until several days after the baby arrives

Meghan and Harry have kept things private for a while, and they recently announced they will continue to do so even after the baby arrives. Meghan will not welcome her baby outside the Lindo Wing the way other royals have done in the past. Instead, it appears the couple will spend a few days with their little one before posing for photos on the grounds of Windsor Castle. For now, the public must just sit and wait to hear the details as they actually unfold.
