SALT LAKE CITY — No, the royal baby name hasn’t leaked.

Fans reportedly searched through the royal family’s website and found that some suspected baby names direct back to the main page. For example, "/prince-arthur," "/prince-alexander" or "/prince-james," all direct back to the homepage, according to E! News.

However, others like "/princess-grace” bring up a “page not found” error page.

According to E! News, fans “thought they had narrowed down the baby name search, but according to the palace, it just isn't so.”

"A large number of search term redirects were set up some time ago on royal.uk," Buckingham Palace told E! News in a statement. "This was in order to improve user experience."

Fans previously thought that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry had already given birth to their first child, who is due any day, according to People magazine.

Photos of a baby posted on the Buckingham Palace’s official social media page on Monday led many to believe that the new baby had been born.

However: It turned out that the photos were of Sophie, the countess of Wessex, visiting newborns as a part of a program from the Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Trust. The program will help tackle blindness in premature babies, according to People magazine.
