Did Prince Harry just confirm that we still have some time to wait for the royal baby?

It certainly looks like it…

It certainly looks like it…

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle could welcome their royal baby any day now with the Duchess of Sussex said to be ‘nesting’ in Frogmore Cottage until the birth of their ‘little bump’.

Last week the royal couple announced that they would be keeping the birth of their child quiet for a little while in order to ‘privately celebrate’, and ever since the whole world has been speculating about everything from potential baby names and nursery decor to God parent choices and baby gifts.


But of course, the most talked-about topic is undoubtedly the royal baby’s due date, with Baby Sussex expected to arrive in April.

Meghan’s mum Doria Ragland arrived in the UK earlier this week, fuelling rumours that the royal was on its way, and seeing as Prince Charles and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge both have travel plans in early May, it is thought that the arrival will come fairly soon.

Prince Harry however may have unintentionally revealed that his wife was not yet in labour, as he stepped out today for an engagement with his sister-in-law Kate Middleton to attend the Anzac Day Service of Commemoration and Thanksgiving at Westminster Abbey.

It is reported that Prince Harry was not expected to attend, making the decision on the day to make an appearance.

It is thought therefore that we still have some time to wait, with fans doubting that Harry would take the risk if Meghan was ready to go into labour at any minute.

When will Baby Sussex arrive? Only time will tell!
