Meghan Markle Made A Big Announcement About Her Due Date

Kensington Palace previously announced the couple were expecting a child in spring 2019.

Meghan Markle revealed some exciting baby news during a visit to Birkenhead with Prince Harry on Monday. 

The Duchess of Sussex told people in the crowd that she’s due to give birth at the end of April or early May, according to Emily Nash, the royal editor at Hello. 

A fan interviewed by People magazine said that Meghan revealed just how far along she was in her pregnancy. 

“We asked her how her pregnancy was going and she said she was six months and she tapped her tummy,” Carla Gandy told the outlet.

When Kensington Palace announced the duke and duchess’ baby news in October, it only said that the former “Suits” actress was due in spring 2019.

The palace typically doesn’t announce specific due dates, the sex of the child, or comment on speculation (particularly the rumours that Meghan might be having twins).

Meghan and Harry spent part of their visit to Birkenhead at the city’s town hall and stopped by a supermarket and cafe that ensures people can access affordable food.

The duke and duchess also visited with crowds who’d gathered in Hamilton Square to meet them and unveiled a plaque next to the “Futility” statue also located in the square.

For the visit, the duchess wore a bright outfit, similar to the queen’s own preference for bold colour-blocking. 

She paired a bright red coat from the label Sentaler with matching red heels and a purple dress from Babaton by Aritizia, according to Harper’s Bazaar. The duchess also carried a cognac-colored Gabriela Hearst “Nina” bag.
