Not long to wait now...

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced the news that they were expecting a baby in Spring 2019, just months ago, with the exciting news sending the internet into a frenzy.

What will be the royal baby name of choice? Could Meghan be expecting twins? Who are the favourites to be God parents? And of course, when is the due date?

There are so many questions in fact that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle must be finding keeping the secrets at royal engagements increasingly difficult, with Harry even joking at an event last week that he didn't know his wife was pregnant at all.

Now that an April birth has reportedly been confirmed, speculation is spreading wider, with rumours that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex would be raising their child with a ‘fluid’ approach to gender.

‘Meghan has been talking to some of her friends about the birth and how she and Harry plan to raise their baby,’ a source told Vanity Fair’s Katie Nicholl. ‘Her exact word was fluid. She said they plan to raise their child with a fluid approach to gender and they won’t be imposing any stereotypes.’

As the comments were spreading across the internet, Kensington Palace made a rare statement, putting an end to the speculation.

According to Hello!, the Palace informed them ‘this story is totally false’.

Well, that’s that.
