Royal baby watchers freaked out after a “glitch” in the British royal family website revealed what people thought were possible names for Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s baby.

Some fans discovered that if one types in the following male names: “prince-arthur, “prince-alexander” or “prince-james” after www.royal.uk, the user will be redirected back to the main homepage, according to “Today” magazine on Tuesday.

But when people typed in less traditional names like “Rupert or Donald,” users discovered a message that reads, “Page not found,” or an error message. (RELATED: Celebrate Prince William’s Birthday With Unforgettable Shots Of Kate Middleton [SLIDESHOW])

Buckingham Palace has since responded to the numerous reports about the possible name or gender reveal.

“A large number of search term redirects were set up some time ago on royal.uk. This was in order to improve user experience,” a spokesperson for the palace told NBC and shared that other “names preceded by ‘prince’ or ‘princess’ will result in the same experience.

It all comes following reports that Queen Elizabeth II has quietly visited the expectant Duchess and Duke of Sussex at their new home at Frogmore Cottage on the grounds of Windsor Castle, as the world awaits news that the next member of the royal family has arrived, per People magazine.

As previously reported, the royal household recently announced that the former “Suits” actress and her husband will not be posing for pictures on the steps of the Lindo Wing at St. Mary’s hospital like Kate Middleton did after all three of her pregnancies.

Instead, the royal couple will be keeping news of the baby’s arrival to themselves until they have had time to celebrate their child’s birth, which has only been described as happening in spring 2019.
