MEGHAN Markle and Prince Harry referred to their new arrival as “Baby Sussex” for the first time today, sending royal fans into a meltdown.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex thanked well-wishers on their official Instagram page for donating to charities for children and parents instead of sending them gifts.
While the total amount donated is still being counted, the soon-to-be parents added: “On behalf of The Duke and Duchess (and Baby Sussex), we thank you so much.”
The couple’s post also used the American word “diapers” instead of nappies – maybe a sign Meghan wrote the message herself.
On social media, the royal couple’s reference to “Baby Sussex” melted the hearts of fans, who have been anxiously awaiting for the little one’s arrival.
Commenting on the couple’s post one said: “I get anxiety every time you guy post thinking it’s baby news.”
One said on Twitter: “I think this is a GREAT way to communicate. And mentioning Baby Sussex is the cherry on top!”
Another added: “SussexRoyal IG account is such an uplifting place to be, so much positivity.
“I love that the Sussexes always make sure to thank supporters.”
Many simply shared crying emojis and hearts as they couldn’t find the words to express their delight.

‘SO MUCH POSITIVITY’
The post informally concluded with: “You made this happen. Thank you.”
The heartwarming message comes a week after Meghan and Harry asked well-wishers to donate the Lunchbox Fund, Well Child, Baby2Baby and Little Village, instead of sending royal baby gifts.
The couple are keeping a tight lip on details surrounding the birth as they said the baby’s arrival will be made public after celebrating privately as a family.
However, there are rumours the Duchess is going to have a home birth at their new home Frogmore Cottage, a stone’s throw from the Queen’s Windsor Castle home.
It is also said they have personally picked their own team to oversee the arrival of the Queen’s eighth great-grandchild.
In today’s update, the account also shared how Lunchbox can now provide 100,000 additional hot nutritious meals to children in need across South Africa.
Little Village, a clothes, toys and equipment bank for young children, has received donations from around the world and had a surge in volunteer applications.
