At a recent royal outing, Meghan Markle has let slip when she and Harry expect their bundle of joy to arrive and it’s not as soon as we first thought.
While chatting to fans at the unveiling of the new Wilfred Owen sculpture in Birkenhead, Meghan revealed she was six months pregnant with the royal baby due around the end of April or early May.

Thank you to everyone that gave The Duke and Duchess of Sussex such a warm welcome to Birkenhead today! The Duke and Duchess viewed a new sculpture erected at Hamilton Square in November 2018 to mark the 100th anniversary of Wilfred Owen’s death. The statue, named after one of the war poet’s poems ‘Futility’, is cast in bronze and represents an exhausted #WW1 soldier. #RoyalVisitBirkenhead #Birkenhead
Duke and Duchess set to have a newborn in time for their first wedding anniversary
In the original announcement of the pregnancy all Kensington Palace gave away was that the baby was due in the Northern Hemisphere’s spring, which starts in March, but didn’t specify a month which led a lot of speculation as to the exact due date with most guessing earlier rather than later.
But the Duchess has now confirmed that the baby is set to arrive late April or early May, during her chatting with fans Meghan also said that they were sticking to the royal tradition of not finding out the sex of the baby before it is born.
If the baby comes in late April it could end up sharing a birthday with its cousin Louis who will turn one on 23rd April or even the Queen who’s birthday is 21st April. No matter when the baby is due the couple will be nursing their newborn child as they celebrate their first wedding anniversary on 19th May.
All we know is that excitement over the birth is set to reach fever pitch by the time the English spring arrives.
Check out the meal and exercise plan we worked out for Meghan to help support a healthy pregnancy.
