UK pop star Sophie Ellis-Bextor has revealed she knows the name of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's first child. "[Meghan] adores your music, she adores you. She's said you're very close friends — do you know the name of the baby?" presenter Susanna Reid asked Ellis-Bextor.
"Obviously, but she's sworn me to secrecy. I'm a big disappointment if you're looking for more," she responded.
In 2017 Ellis-Bextor told HELLO! she'd met Markle a few times, and she was "a lovely girl".
Well done to Sophie Ellis Bextor on Good Morning Britain for dealing with Piers Morgans many stupid questions. 'are you gonna keep having kids til you have a girl?' 'I just wanted people, actually'— 🦇 Sarah (@SkullsGlitter) May 7, 2019
"We met her a couple of years back and she said she really liked the song [Murder on the Dance Floor] and we sort of spent a weekend away at something together and she was really lovely," she explained.
In Markle's blog The Tig, which she closed in 2017, she spoke fondly of Sophie's music, especially her song Come with Us, which featured in one of her many playlists.
I'm happy for Meghan and Harry but this sycophantic trash on TV this morning is doing my head in. A woman said on #bbcnews that the baby may one day be King AND President of the US. Susannah also managed to like Sophie Ellis Bextor's new music to the baby on #GMB. FFS.— 🌹ɖàռìɛʟ ʊì ռèɨʟʟ🌹 (@HomoSocialist) May 7, 2019
Despite Ellis-Bextor's tight-lippedness, royal family fanatics won't have to wait much longer to learn the child's name — the couple could reveal it 8th May, when they pose for photographers outside their home, Frogmore Cottage, with their newborn son.
