Looks like Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan could be new parents sooner than we thought!

The Duchess of Sussex has let slip her baby’s due date as she chatted to well-wishers in Birkenhead.

Speaking after her royal encounter, local woman Kim Thompson said: ‘She said she is six months pregnant and due at the end of April, beginning of May.’

Meghan, 37, revealed that she is six months pregnant, with her first child expected in late April as she met locals in the Merseyside town during her and Prince Harry’s first joint engagement of the year.

She also revealed the couple don’t know whether they’re having a boy or a girl, as they want it to be a ‘surprise’.

The brief exchange took place as Meghan chatted to locals who had gathered to meet her and Harry.

While Kensington Palace have not publicly revealed Meghan’s due date, royal fans had previously speculated that Baby Sussex could be expected as early as March due to her blossoming baby bump.

  • Who really cares?


  • Babys come when they are due and ready :)


  • She wasn’t exactly being specific, she just gave an approximate time frame, I don’t why the big


  • Baby’s don’t follow anything official so why is a a slip! She was just saying how far along she was.


  • Wow that will throw betting into a spin!! It was always suggested April-ish. First babies are rarely on time so how about we just wait and see instead of trying to predict everything.


  • Due date is only an estimate. It may or may not be close to the date a baby is born. You can’t rely on the size of the “bump” either. At 7 months he nurses at a hospital thought my SIL was going to give birth any day.


  • Ok I’ll share my birthday with them, not like Kate and William didn’t already steal it hahaha


  • It will come when it wants to – there is no schedule for babies.


  • The baby will come when ready. I wish them both the very best.


  • I like Meghan and I hope her pregnancy will continue going well.


  • She looks beautiful. Hope all goes well for them !


  • I can’t wait for the Royal Baby to be born!! ????????????


  • It’s very exciting. I can’t wait for the news of the new royal baby!


  • You could say your 6 months pregnant when you’re a day off 7 months or when you are over 5 and a half months everyone needs to calm down.


  • Means nothing… I constantly got confused about how pregnant I was…
