While we likely won't know the name of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's child until he or she is born, the Duke of Sussex just shared what he and his wife are calling their baby in the meantime. On one of the couple's last outings of their Australian tour, Prince Harry thanked the locals for welcoming him, his wife, and their baby-to-be, and revealed the moniker in the process, reports E! News.

 

"From myself, my wife and our little bump, we are so grateful to be here," he said, after the couple arrived in New Zealand. "We bring blessings from my grandmother the Queen and our family. We are so grateful for your hospitality and the work to look after this beautiful place."

Following Prince Harry's remarks, the duo took part in a traditional hongi greeting (this involves touching noses with the person you're meeting!) before taking a walk on the beach. This leisurely, low-key event followed a much more high-profile one at a war memorial the night prior, where Prince Harry was presented with the "Badge in Gold" (New Zealand's highest military honor!) for his work with injured veterans. This was a proud wife moment for Markle, who did her husband the honor of pinning the medal to her husband's lapel.

 

The couple's Australian tour—which is nearly at a close—has been full of these proud moments. The mom-to-be snapped a photo of Prince Harry rehearsing a speech for the Invictus Games' closing ceremony on Saturday, which she promptly posted on Twitter. This marked the Duchess' first contribution to the Kensington Royal Twitter account, which she now shares with her husband, Prince William, and Kate Middleton.
