It’s already been determined that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s baby will make history in several ways. Since Meghan has lived in the U.S. for a minimum of five years, her baby will have dual citizenship; he or she may be welcomed into the world during a home birth (even though it’s protocol that royals give birth at the Lindo Wing of St. Mary’s Hospital); and the newest royal will also be the first newborn to live in Frogmore Cottage.
And now, we’re learning that the baby could also make history by being the heaviest baby born into the royal family. As Hello! reports, the title of heaviest heir to the throne currently belongs to Prince Louis, who weighed 8 pounds 7 ounces. That’s just barely more than his older brother Prince George, who weighing 8 pounds 6 ounces when he was born. Their sister, Princess Charlotte, is a close third, clocking in at 8 pounds 3 ounces.
But Louis isn’t the heaviest royal. Hello! says that title belongs to Mike and Zara Tindall’s baby daughter Lena, who weighed 9 pounds 3 ounces when she was born last summer. And before Lena came along, Peter and Autumn Phillips’ daughter Savannah held the record at 8 pounds 8 ounces.
And if the rumors are true that Kate and Meghan are competitive, Kate might actually break Baby Sussex’s potential record by having an even heavier baby, if the rumors are true that she and Prince William are trying for baby number four. If Kate needed a reason to have another kid, winning this competition may be it.
