Prince Harry wants a baby girl!
The 34-year-old Duke of Sussex let the news slip about his little royal princess as he walked between events at the Invictus Games in Sydney over the weekend.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced on their arrival in Sydney that she was pregnant and they were having a baby, welcoming a new royal baby in April 2019.
Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, who is thought to be 15 weeks pregnant, wasn't with Harry when he made the cheeky announcement.
After a busy week of engagements, the palace announced late on Saturday that Meghan Markle would cut back her schedule. On Sunday, she attended two events but skipped one, an Invictus Games cycling competition, and Harry went alone. Harry told competitors that Meghan, 37, was 'resting at home [as] being pregnant takes its toll'.
At the event, a female fan shouted out to him as he walked on the side of the cycling path, saying, "I hope it's a girl!"
"So do I," Harry replied, as seen in a viral fan video posted on Instagram.
A day after Kensington Palace announced Meghan's pregnancy, Harry told fans in Australia, "We also genuinely couldn't think of a better place to announce the upcoming baby...whether it's a boy or a girl."
Also during there week Harry and Meghan chatted with a woman named Jessica and played with her 5-month-old daughter Harriet.
"As soon as I introduced my daughter to Harry, he said, 'That's a great name.'" Jessica said, according to British press reports. "Maybe they will choose it for their own child, which would be fun."
Next the couple will travel up to Fraser Island, off the coast of Queensland, to visit Lake McKenzie and a walkabout on the Kingfisher Bay.
