Last week, the name Elizabeth (which would be a nod to Harry’s grandmother the Queen) was in first place. Since the announcement of their first child in October, Meghan, 37, and Harry, 34, have remained mum about the details.

In honor of International Women’s Day in March, the Duchess – who was just weeks from maternity leave – expressed her vision for her child. “It’s funny, I’ve actually been joking the last few weeks," the Duchess of Sussex responded during a panel. "I had seen this documentary on Netflix about feminism, and one of the things they said during pregnancy was ‘I feel the embryonic kicking of feminism.’ I loved that, so boy or girl, whatever it is, we hope that that’s the case with our little bump."
