Harry hints Meghan Markle’s baby will take important record from Prince Louis

Prince Harry tonight revealed he and Meghan Markle are expecting a “heavy baby”.

The Duke of Sussex, 34, joked about the weight of his unborn baby as he joined his wife in celebrating the achievements of military veterans at an awards ceremony .

Meghan Markle , 37, was pictured cradling her baby bump, more than six months into her pregnancy .

And Harry quipped “there’s a heavy baby in there” at the glittering function at the annual Endeavour Fund Awards at Drapers’ Hall, a posh central London hotel.

Meghan praised her husband saying: “He’s going to be a good daddy.”

The couple’s unborn baby could potentially be the royal family’s heaviest baby. Prince Louis currently holds the record after weighing 8lb, 7oz when he was born in April last year.

Louis was heavier than both his siblings and took the ‘heaviest baby’ gong from his big brother.

Princess Charlotte tipped the scales at 8lb 3oz in May 2015, and Prince George weighed 8lb 6oz two years before.

In contrast, Prince William weighed a lean 7lbs 1.5oz back in 1982 and Harry came in at just 6lbs 14oz in 1984. George and Charlotte’s grandfather, Prince Charles, was a little heavier than his sons at 7lbs 6oz back in 1948.

The royal couple, who wed in May last year, attended the event recognising the achievements of men and women who, despite life-changing injuries, accidents or illnesses, have excelled in a sporting or adventure challenge.  

The former Suits actress opted for a monochrome look from her wedding dress designer Givenchy for the occasion.
