JUST IN: Meghan reveals she will give her baby the initials MM - thanks to a secret engraving on her watch
The Duchess of Sussex revealed the news in an interview - and a secret watch engraving
Editor / April 25 2019
With the birth of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's baby expected any day now, royal fans think they have found a major clue about the baby's name.
And one royal watcher on Instagram has revealed that it looks like 37-year-old Duchess will opt for a baby with the initials MM - leading them to think it might be named after our very own Princess Mary if it is a girl!
And how have they worked this out? It all comes down to a watch engraving that Meghan has on a special watch dedicated to her first child.
Posting a quote from an interview with Meghan, @harry_meghan_updates reminded followers that the Duchess of Sussex once revealed she planned to gift her daughter a Cartier watch she had bought especially for her.
And it seems the royal also revealed the potential name for her daughter - or at least the initials.
Speaking to HELLO in 2015, Meghan explained, "When I found out Suits had been picked up for our third season – which, at the time, felt like such a milestone – I totally splurged and bought the two-tone version [of the watch].
"I had it engraved on the back, 'To M.M. From M.M.'
"And I plan to give it to my daughter one day.
"That's what makes pieces special, the connection you have to them."
With Meghan revealing the £8,800 watch would be "to M.M" royal fans think this could indicate the royals will name their baby Mary - if it turns out to be a girl.
"In an interview before Harry, Meghan made an interesting point to one day give her Cartier watch to her daughter one day 'From M.M to M.M'," wrote the fan account.
"But of course one should consider Daddy’s opinion now."
According to betting companies, the hot favourite names for a baby girl are Diana, Elizabeth and Alice while Arthur and Edward are in the running for a baby boy.
But a royal etiquette expert believes that while the royal couple will stick to a name like Mary for the first name, they will be more playful with the second name and that it will be a nod to Meghan's cultural heritage.
Myka Meier said: “In the wedding she had several nods to her American heritage and I think we will see the same with the baby."
