Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are expecting a baby this spring. While royal watchers don’t know much about the child yet, they at least know where the baby will be in line for the British throne.

Currently, Prince Harry is sixth in line to the British throne, behind Prince Charles, Prince William, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. That makes his first child seventh in line. The royal baby will bump Prince Andrew down to eighth in line.

Less clear, however, is if the baby will be a Royal Highness. Technically, Prince Charles is the only one who automatically became a Royal Highness at birth. The Queen has to give special permission for anyone else in the family to use HRH.

She gave that special permission to Prince William and Kate Middleton’s children in December 2012, months before Prince George was born. It isn’t clear if Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s child will have the same permission.

According to the Sun, the royal baby will still have a title. If it’s a boy, he’ll receive Prince Harry’s subsidiary title, Earl of Dumbarton. A girl, however, will simply be called Lady Mountbatten-Windsor.

The sex of the royal baby is unknown. The Duchess of Sussex reportedly told well-wishers in January that they won’t know if it’s a boy or girl until she gives birth in late April or early May.
