Baby Sussex will be here sooner than we know!
When Prince Harry and Meghan Markle married on Mary 19th, 2018, the world watched in captivated by the endearing couple. There was no secret about it: these two were what fairytale dreams were made of.
Once the wedding came and went, attention immediately shifted towards a pregnancy announcement. While Harry and Meghan were staying busy with royal duties, fans anxiously awaited seeing the confirming tweet from Kensington Palace announcing that everyone’s favorite newlyweds were pregnant. Finally, on October 15th, 2018, everyone learned the truth.
In a post shared with an excited picture of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, the words, “Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Sussex is expecting a baby in the Spring of 2019.” Within seconds, the announcement went viral as the adored newlyweds finally announced the big deal!
Immediately following the announcement, PEOPLE confirmed that the Duchess had already had her 12-week ultrasound. Judging from the timeline, it would appear as though Meghan and Harry would be welcoming their firstborn in April 2019. However, true royal watchers are thinking that Meghan is due much sooner than April.
The first clue to an earlier due date came during Harry and Meghan’s tour in Australia. During a visit, Meghan spilled the beans about her very private pregnancy; Missy Higgins, who met and spoke with Meghan Markle, took to social media where she shared about her experience meeting the Duchess.
On her Instagram, Missy revealed, “What an honor to meet the beautiful Duchess today! She was such a sweetheart. I said I felt sorry for her having to do all these meet-and-greets while 4 months pregnant! What a trooper. Prince Harry was gorgeous too, a real charmer. He squeezed Luna's legs and said 'who's this little cutie?' Looking forward to telling Luna she slept through it all one day."
Did you catch that?? She said, “...having to do all these meet-and-greets while 4 months pregnant!” Four months - not three!
The second clue came in December when Harry and Meghan were photographed leaving a Christmas Carol at St. Lukes church in South West London. Just as they left, paparazzi managed to snap some pictures of Meghan’s growing baby bump.
The third and most recent clue came on Christmas Day when Megan Markle and the rest of the Royal Family spent the morning at Sandringham for a Christmas Morning church service. While Meghan was dressed in a deep navy dress and coat, she still humored some curious fans by chatting about her baby.
In a video shared on Twitter (That has since been made “unsharable”) by Emily Spencer, Meghan gets congratulated on her on the family’s new addition. Meghan responded with a smile and placed a hand on her baby bump and told the crowd, “We’re nearly there!”
Eeek! “Nearly there!” Immediately, fans took to social media to share about what “nearly there” means in terms of Baby Sussex. Many believe the baby will arrive before Spring 2019, which is when Kensington Palace announced it. I think Baby Sussex will be arriving in February 2019. What are your guesses?
