The singer from Doncaster has met the duke and duchess on a few occasions, including last year at the Royal Variety Performance.

The really important question is, when will there be a royal baby Niall?
They were obvious very impressed. Liam also performed recently, maybe the next boy will be Liam!😂There's a Harry in the royal family already, how do we get Niall in?— Shell Survived HARRY (@ShellvpSmith) April 27, 2018
As for the man himself, he had his own take on the choice of name.
