It's quite special

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's first child is still another two seasons away from being born, but they're already a celebrity in their own right, dominating headlines left and right since the royal couple announced they were expecting on Monday. In keeping with the royal baby craze, Entertainment Tonight has unearthed an old interview from Hello! magazine in which the Duchess of Sussex revealed she already has a present in store for her unborn child—and it may hint at the baby's name.

"I’ve always coveted the Cartier French Tank watch," she told Hello! back in 2015. "When I found out Suits had been picked up for our third season—which, at the time, felt like such a milestone—I totally splurged and bought the two-tone version."

While that's already quite a fitting gift for a tiny royal-to-be (ET discovered it retails for around $6,900), it's what she says next that might clue us in to Meghan and Harry's baby name choices.

"I had it engraved on the back, 'To M.M. From M.M,'" she added. "And I plan to give it to my daughter one day. That’s what makes pieces special, the connection you have to them."

In other words, if Markle decides to stick with what she said in the interview, then she might be thinking about naming the child something that starts with 'M' (and maybe even with a matching middle name) to make the inscription all the more special—that is, if they turn out to be a girl. Of course, the duchess could have changed her mind since then (and it'd be a cool gift even if the baby's initials aren't M.M.), but it might be something you want to keep in mind once it's time to place your bets.
