Hattingdon’s hatmaker Mrs Farrell was experimenting with the idea of a see-through brim.
While she was working on it, it was announced that Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, had delivered a healthy baby boy. So she made the hat in baby blue and introduced it in his honour.
In the News
The BBC reports:
A beaming Prince Harry said they were “absolutely thrilled” and thanked the public for their support.
He said Meghan and the baby were doing “incredibly well”, adding that they were still thinking about names for the infant, who was delivered at 05:26 BST [May 6th, 2019]
Buckingham Palace said the baby weighed 7lbs 3oz (3.2kg), and that the duke was present for the birth.
The baby boy is seventh in line to the throne, behind the Prince of Wales, the Duke of Cambridge and his children – Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis — and Prince Harry.
He is the Queen’s eighth great-grandchild. End quote.
So. . . . what do you think they will name Baby Sussex?
The Telegraph reports:
Today, William Hill have a new favourite name — Alexander goes 4/1. Arthur is offered at 5/1, with Spencer the big mover (cut from 20/1 to 9/1).
In the US, the most popular name is Liam for a baby boy. In the UK, the most popular name for a boy is Oliver. End quote.
We took a poll at Hattingdon HQ, and everyone without exception took a big shine to the name Spencer, the late Princess of Wales’ family name. We love that.
