What will Prince Harry and Meghan's royal baby call Prince Charles?

By Meaghan Wray

Prince Charles is gearing up to become a grandpa for the fourth time, but it'll be the first grandchild he welcomes outside of Prince William and Kate's adorable crew – Prince George, 5, Princess Charlotte, 3, and nine-month-old Prince Louis. While royal watchers know what the Cambridge trio calls their royal grandpa, many are wondering what Prince Harry and Meghan's royal baby will call him...

There's no doubt that Baby Sussex will spend a lot of time with his or her royal cousins once old enough. And by the time he or she starts talking, it's likely the sweet bundle of joy will call the future King "Grandpa Wales," just like George, Charlotte and soon, Louis.

The adorable nickname was revealed last year by royal author Robert Hardman, who'd chatted with people very close to the 70-year-old. What's even sweeter is the name the Queen called her grandfather George V... "Grandpa England." Too cute!

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been busy bees stepping out for causes close to their hearts – like their recent artsy outing to see The Wider Earth and their red-carpet appearance at The Endeavour Fund Awards. Making them even busier, of course, is their baby who's due to join the royal fold around the end of March or early April. But the couple won't be without the loving support of Prince Charles and his wife, the Duchess of Cornwall.

The doting grandpa has previously said: "It's a different part of your life. The great thing is to encourage them. Show them things to take their interest. My grandmother did that. She was wonderful... It is very important to create a bond when they are very young." And it's plain to see that Charles fostered quite a beautiful bond with his children, Princes William and Harry, who still look up to their father for his environmental awareness and love for his grandchildren.

And Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, won't be far behind when it comes to bonding with the future Baby Sussex! She has five grandchildren – two granddaughters and three grandsons – from her previous marriage. "My grandchildren adore him, absolutely adore him," she revealed on the BBC documentary Prince, Son and Heir: Charles at 70. "He reads Harry Potter and he can do all the different voices and I think children really appreciate that."
