Prince Charles has joked that Harry and Meghan could take inspiration from their recent royal tour by choosing a very Aussie name for their first child.
While William and Kate chose very royal names for their children, the 70-year-old hinted that his other son might go down a different path, The Mirror reports.
Speaking at a reception celebrating the centenary of Australia House in London, the Prince of Wales claimed the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have quite a long list of potential names since their trip down under. And some iconic Australian names could even make it to the top.
“Incidentally ladies and gentlemen my son Harry tells me that during their recent tour of Australia, he and his wife were offered countless thoughtful suggestions for the naming of their forthcoming baby,” he told the crowd of Aussies and UK residents.
“Just between us, I suspect that Kylie and Shane may possibly make the shortlist”. Charles was of course making reference to Aussie singer Kylie Minogue and cricketer Shane Warne.
However, it seems the couple wouldn’t go as far as naming their royal baby after Aussie comedian Barry Humphries who is known for his stage and television alter egos Dame Edna and Sir Les Patterson.
“But ladies and gentlemen I would not hold your breath for Edna or Les,” The Mirror reports Charles joked.
Harry and Meghan have been quite busy since the announcement of the royal baby last month. The pair haven’t had a moments rest since their whirlwind tour that took them around Australia, New Zealand, Tonga and Fiji.
The Duchess of Sussex showed off her growing baby bump on Monday evening at the Royal Variety Performance 2018 at The London Palladium.
The former actress was all smiles as she arrived at the star-studded event and happily waved and interacted with fans who had been waiting for her arrival. The Royal Variety Performance takes place every year in aid of the Royal Variety charity, of which the Queen is a Patron.
For the outing, Meghan opted for a sparkly black and white dress that showed off her growing baby bump. The sleeveless sequined frock was complete with a complimentary halter neck neckline and featured a long train for the elegant event. As always, she accessorised perfectly with a black bag, matching stilettos and a sparkly pair of earrings.
Meanwhile, a handsome Harry opted for a smart tuxedo and matching black tie and he walked arm in arm with his loving wife. In a video shared on the Kensington Palace Twitter page, Meghan could be seen walking the red carpet with Harry and receiving a stunning bunch of flowers from an adoring fan.
