We’ve been waiting for a sign that the royal baby is on the way, but maybe it’s time to consider the little one is already here!
The expected due date for the bundle of joy is unknown, aside from late April to early May, so they could realistically be here by now!
Meghan Markle was last seen publicly in mid-March, while Prince Harry has been spotted out as recently as this past weekend, so it’s possible the baby has already made an arrival and the new parents are just waiting for the right moment to announce while they soak in these precious moments with the new addition!
Here’s what we know so far that could point to the baby already being here!
Opting For Privacy
Unlike royal mothers of the past, Meg has opted not to give birth atÂ Lindo WingÂ inÂ St. Maryâ€™s HospitalÂ in Westminster, whereÂ Princess DianaÂ deliveredÂ Prince WilliamÂ and Harry, as well as whereÂ Kate MiddletonÂ deliveredÂ Prince George,Â Princess Charlotte, andÂ Prince Louis.
Buckingham Palace issued a formal statement on April 11 about the Duke and Duchess’ decision to keep the baby’s birth private, confirming what many already believed to be true:
“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are very grateful for the goodwill they have received from people throughout the United Kingdom and around the world as they prepare to welcome their baby.Â Their royal highnesses have taken a personal decision to keep the plans around the arrival of their baby private. The Duke and Duchess look forward to sharing the exciting news with everyone once they have had an opportunity to celebrate privately as a new family.”
This makes it highly likely that there will be no photocall after the birth, which was started by Di in the 1980s. In fact, it seems far more modern that the new parents would share the happy news on their new Instagram account.Â Since things are being kept SO under wraps, we wouldn’t be surprised if the baby had already made their entrance!
LA To London
Doria Ragland, the grandmother-to-be is rumored to already have made her way across the pond in anticipation of her grandchild’s birth. A dog walker was recently spotted by Miz Ragland’s El Lay home walking her pups (see the pics HERE), so it’s possible she flew to London Town to welcome the royal!
Sharing With Charlotte and Louis
While we’re unclear on her exact due date, the baby (as long as they were not born before April 20), will be a Taurus — just like Louis and Charlotte! The little prince celebrated his first birthday on April 23, and Charlotte rings in four on May 2.
We can only hope that the Princess will look this sweet visiting her new cousin!
Kate and Meg are reported to have been at odds for quite some time, and the birth of a new baby on the same day as either of the babies would definitely heat things up in our opinion, so the baby may have a birthday right in between!
Headed To The Netherlands
While the 34-year-old has made a few recent appearances, including at Easter Sunday, the London Marathon, and Anzac Day services — none of those were scheduled in anticipation for the baby’s birth.
However, it was announced by Buckingham Palace that the Duke of Sussex would be making a voyage to The Netherlands on May 8 and 9, and while he likely won’t want to leave his new baby and wife, it makes sense that the trip would come after the baby so he doesn’t miss the birth!
Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall are expected to head to Germany for a three-day visit on May 7, giving an even tighter window of time for them to get in lots of newborn snuggles before they depart!
What do you think, Perezcious readers? Is the baby already here or still cookin’? We’re anxious either way!!
