Whoops: Did the Palace just accidentally reveal the name and gender of Baby Sussex?

Whoops: Did the Palace just accidentally reveal the name and gender of Baby Sussex?

As Duchess Meghan has decided not to do the traditional royal photo outside of the hospital holding her new baby with Prince Harry, many believe that her due date – reported to be April 28 – has been and gone.

Fans of the royal family are getting eager to see a glimpse of Baby Sussex, but as it turns out, they needn’t look any further than the Palace's official website.

Eagle-eyed fans have noticed a technicality on the Palace website that might have accidentally revealed the baby’s name and gender.

Obsessed fans have discovered three pages on the Buckingham Place website that have been reserved for a “Prince Alexander”, a “Prince Arthur” and a “Prince James”.

Each link, if you search it as www.royal.uk/prince-arthur, is redirected back to the main page of the palace website.

However, when fans tried girl names that topped the “most likely” list for Baby Sussex, they appeared with a “Page not found” error.

This isn’t the first time this has happened, with eager fans noticing the same thing when Prince Louis was born. Instead of a URL that linked to Prince Louis, there was a new webpage built for www.royal.uk/prince-albert, which led fans to believe that was the new name for the latest royal baby.

Is it a ruse to throw eager fans off the scent or could they be right about the name of Baby Sussex? Only time will tell, but the Duke and Duchess of Sussex seem eager to keep things under wraps.
