Harry and Meghan’s Baby Already Has A Name – Earl

There is much breathless anticipation over the naming of Harry and Meghan’s – more correctly, the Duke and Duchess of Suffolk – new baby boy. Which is odd for, as we reported a time back, we already know what the young one’s name is/will be. For he will be Earl of Dumbarton. As is between usual and likely for the first son of a Duke.

Or at least can be, if that’s what their parents wish them to be.…

It appears that we’ve got to educate the Americans in how these titles things work again. It could be that it’s just they don’t have any so don’t understand the functioning of these important things, could be just that they’re colonials and thus don’t know any better. But while it’s entirely true, as things stand right now, that Meghan Markle’s upcoming child won’t be a Royal Highness there will still be a title involved.
