Regardless of the gender, Meghan and Harry are already making some big decision for their child. It was recently revealed that the couple will not seek a royal title for their baby, despite a range of options.
According to Express, if the couple welcomes a boy, he will receive the title of Earl of Dumbarton, a title given to Harry by Queen Elizabeth on his wedding day. If a girl, the title Lady Mountbatten-Windsor would be given, and any sons after would be named Lord Mounbatten-Windsor.
