Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have the globe waiting in anticipation for the arrival of their first child together.
Prince Charles, make-up artist Daniel Martin and Serena Williams have all hinted to the Duchess of Sussex's due date, but the pair will not welcome their little one the traditional way Kate Middleton and Princess Diana did as the couple will not pose on the steps of the Lindo Wing with their newborn.
Now Queen Elizabeth II has sparked speculation baby Sussex has arrived as she has recently visited Frogmore Cottage, where Meghan and Harry live.
A source told The Sun newspaper: 'Her Majesty wanted to formally welcome the Sussexes to their new home so she was their first visitor.
'After all, they’ve practically moved into her back garden.
'She visited with other family members and Harry and Meghan were delighted to show them round.'
The 93-year-old monarch was reportedly the first person to see the couple at their home, ahead of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and makes frequent visits to the duo every Sunday.
A separate source told PEOPLE: 'When the Queen is there on a Sunday afternoon, it is a five-minute walk up the hill for tea with Granny. It is gorgeous.'
Does the secret visits mean Harry and Meghan's baby has arrived?
