What an incredibly special surprise the grassroots led #globalsussexbabyshower was last Sunday! The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are immensely grateful for the outpouring of love and support in anticipation of the birth of their first child. In lieu of sending gifts, the couple have long planned to encourage members of the public to make donations to select charities for children and parents in need. If you already made a donation, the couple send you their greatest thanks. If you are thinking about it, they ask that you kindly consider the following organisations they’ve selected, which we will highlight here over the next few days: @thelunchboxfund @littlevillagehq @wellchild @baby2baby The Duke and Duchess remain appreciative for your warm wishes and kindness during this especially happy time in their lives! Thank you for sharing the love ❤️
Congratulations to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle! Last night, the Duchess of Sussex finally gave birth to a healthy baby boy, and Prince Harry was obviously excited, evident in this video, where he was just smiling the whole time.

In the clip, he also revealed that they’re still thinking about names. “That’s the next bit,” he said, and suggested they will announce it in two days. Well, he and Meghan need only to check Twitter because netizens have some ideas.
Some predictable ones:

And some… um, interesting ones:
They should name the royal baby something badass like Angus Nitro.

Still trying to help the royals name the new baby. Something that blends British tradition with brash American ideals.
I like both Allistair McAllister and H. Salt, Esquire.

They should give the royal baby a traditional American name and call him ‘Chip’
