Meghan Markle is believed to be giving birth to the royal baby any day now, as Prince Harry's dad Prince Charles, as well as the Duchess of Sussex's make-up artist recently hinted.

Although the royal couple insist they won't publicly announce the news of the arrival straight away, or pose outside the Lindo Wing like Kate Middleton and Princess Diana, there is something else in store to keep parents on tenterhooks this month.

Pure Leaf Tea are giving away a whopping $10,000 to newborns, born in America, who will share the same birthday as baby Sussex, and the huge sum is set to go towards their future education.

As part of the Royal Tea contest the first 10 entries, who will be chosen at random, will also be given the opportunity to have a formal family portrait taken by American photographer Yaron Leshem.

The lucky winners will be jetted to a location of their choice to shoot the photo, which you could even copy and send out to relatives over Christmas like the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

But the runners up do not miss out either, as 50 families will be selected to receive a $100 Shutterfly gift card.

The competition is simple to enter. All you need to do is:

  • Follow Pure Leaf on Twitter or Instagram
  • When your baby is born on the same day as the royal baby, submit a picture of the full family, the new addition to the family or a baby accessory on social media
  • Make sure to use the hashtag #PureLeafRoyalTEABaby and #Sweepstakes

Entries can be entered up to seven days after the birth.

Once the submission date has come to a close within 48 hours the successful candidates will be selected and notified by direct message, but they MUST reply within two days of finding out they've won to claim the prize.
