The Child Will Probably Go by the Last Name "Sussex"

Technically, the royal family’s last name is Mountbatten-Windsor, but it’s rare for the members of the family to use that surname in day-to-day life. Prince William and Prince Harry went by William Wales and Harry Wales during their own school days, as well as their years in the armed forces. Why? Because their father, Prince Charles, is the Prince of Wales. It’s an homage to their father’s title, for occasions when “Prince” just feels a bit too formal. Similarly, Prince George is known as "George Cambridge" at school. Since Harry and Meghan’s royal titles are the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, their child will likely use that as their last name in such occasions.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry want every day to be Earth Day.

The royal couple, who are expecting their first child any day, celebrated the environment conservation holiday on Monday with a post on their newly launched Instagram page.

“Today is #earthday – an opportunity to learn about, celebrate and continue to safeguard our planet, our home,” they captioned a series of photos.

The first snap in the series showed Meghan, 37, and Harry, 34, during their visit to the Redwoods Treewalk Rotorua in New Zealand during their October royal tour. The couple stroll hand-in-hand through the majestic trees.
