It’s a very exciting time for Meghan Markle and Prince Harry as they’ve just told the world they are expecting their first baby.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will welcome their new arrival in the spring, and like all parents-to-be they’ve got a lot of things to sort out.
One of the big decisions to make is a name – but it turns out they’ve already worked out how they’re going to discuss it.
During a tram ride with a group of excited schoolchildren, 12-year-old Charlie Wolf asked if the couple had any names for their baby.
Royal family he replied: “Probably not, but they can come and visit any time they like.”
Meghan and Harry appeared completely at ease as they took a tram to their last engagement of the day at the beach.
The youngsters who travelled with them are all captains in their schools, and were given the exciting news that they would be meeting the Duke and Duchess of Sussex just two weeks ago.
While the journey lasted less than five minutes, the pupils still managed to get in some pressing questions.

Lola Marinis, 12, from Middlepark Primary School, sat near Harry and told her she wanted to be a teacher when she grows up.
Harry told her it was “a really good thing,” adding: “There is always going to be one bad teacher that you remember, we need more good teachers.”
D’Artagnan Holt, an 18-year-old student from Elwood College, confided in Meghan that he wanted to become an actor.
He said: “She told me to pursue it, that there was a good industry [in] Australia.”
Meanwhile Felix Asser-McCallum, 12, from Albert Park primary school, had a very special family connection to share with Harry.
Many years ago, his grandmother had danced with Prince Philip in Canberra. Felix had only discovered the story after he knew he would be meeting the Royal couple.
He said Harry had been “surprised,” but responded: “Cool! That’s great!”
