Has Buckingham Palace accidentally revealed the name and gender of Baby Sussex?

Eagle-eyed royal fans have spotted some tell-tale signs on the official royal family website that could give away a big clue of what gender the baby is going to be.

While it's been reported that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex don't know the gender of their baby yet, choosing to find out once the child is born, eagle-eyed fans have spotted some curious details that could suggest the couple actually do know the gender (and even their favourite picks for the name) thanks to a potential slip-up by Buckingham Palace.
Dedicated fans discovered that the Royal Family's website has reserved pages for a "Prince Arthur", "Prince James" and "Prince Alexander", reports The Daily Star.
When trying to access the pages www.royal.uk/prince-arthur or substituted for 'prince-james' or 'prince-alexander', the site returns to the home page, however when entered with any of the other picks touted to be a front-runner, the website loads to a "Page not found".
Could this mean that those three names are Meghan and Harry's top picks for the newborn? And, that Baby Sussex is a boy?

Before we get carried away, it should be noted that during the wait for Prince Louis' name to be announced following his birth last year, a page was discovered to have been set up under the URL 'prince-albert' on the official website, and as we all know, Prince Louis turned out to be called, well, Louis.
A Buckingham Palace spokeswoman has also told the The Daily Star, "A large number of search term redirects were set up some time ago on royal.uk.
"This was in order to improve user experience."
The bookies on the other hand, are pretty certain the new royal baby will be a girl, with the top picks for names being Diana, Victoria, Alice, Grace and Elizabeth.
Meanwhile Albert, Arthur and James are popular picks for if the baby is a boy.

Well, only time will tell, as the world waits with bated breath for its imminent arrival.
It's expected that Buckingham Palace will release a statement when Meghan goes into labour, however unlike the birth of her sister-in-law Duchess Catherine, it's thought no details of where she will be giving birth will be released.
In a statement released earlier this month by the Palace, it was also announced Meghan will forego the post-birth photo call practiced by her late-mother-in-law Diana and Kate, opting to have a private shoot a few days after the baby's arrival, once her, Harry and the family have had a chance to celebrate in private.
"The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are very grateful for the goodwill they have received from people throughout the United Kingdom and around the world as they prepare to welcome their baby," the statement begins.
"Their Royal Highnesses have taken a personal decision to keep the plans around the arrival of their baby private.
"The Duke and Duchess look forward to sharing the exciting news with everyone once they have had an opportunity to celebrate privately as a new family," the statement concludes.
And with Meghan's mum already at Windsor with her, that celebration will be coming very, very soon.
