Prince Harry revealed the adorable nickname for his and Meghan Markle’s unborn baby during moving speech
The Duke of Sussex melted hearts at Abel Tasman National Park in New Zealand
Prince Harry is proving to be the most adorable dad-to-be. During a speech at Abel Tasman National Park in New Zealand, the Duke revealed the nickname he and Meghan have given their unborn child.
The Duke told the crowd of their visit, “The weather forecast was a lot worse than this and we are really fortunate to be here. The rain is a blessing and a reminder of our connection to the land… From my wife, myself and our little bump, it’s a blessing to be here,” he said.
“We bring you greetings from my grandmother.”
Calling your unborn baby “our little bump”? So cute.

On Monday afternoon, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex walked in the wilderness reserve, where they talked with conservation staff. The parents-to-be had planned to visit a beach barbecue, followed by tree planting with local students, but the weather meant they instead joined the students for brownies and tea under a marquee.
According to the Daily Mail, “Under the marquee, a kaumatua (elder) from the local iwi (tribe) Barney Thomas spoke in Te Reo Maori, wishing them well with their pepi (baby).”
As customary, the Duchess sat slightly behind the Duke. One of the elders explained: “The middle represents the god of war and we don’t want to put our women into that space…We want to be inclusive, but especially Meghan, because she’s expecting, we don’t want to put her at any risk.”
The couple looked loved-up as they strolled through the beautiful reserve, wearing practical clothes in the light rain.
