Following their much-hyped nuptials earlier this year, it is very possible that Meghan and Harry, the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex are thinking about having babies and starting a family.

Both Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have previously spoken about their desire to have a family.

 

However, it turns out should any tiny Royals arrive for the couple, there'll be one noticeable difference between them and their cousins George, Louis and Charlotte.

According to royal insiders, they will likely have different surnames.

Despite them all historically sharing the surname Mountbatten-Windsor, as direct descendants of The Queen, it is most likely they will take the name Sussex.

Notably, when William and Harry were at school, they were known as William and Harry Wales - a consequence of their dad being Prince Charles of Wales.

Kensington Palace has confirmed George would be known as George Cambridge on the school register - his dad is Prince William, Duke of Cambridge.

It is likely any future children Harry and Meghan have will adopt the surname Sussex.
