Kensington Palace has dropped a major hint that Meghan Markle may have welcomed her first child with Prince Harry.
The palace issued a note yesterday saying that the Duke of Sussex is going to be visiting the Netherlands next week to undertake an official engagement in Amsterdam. According to Metro UK, it has been seen by many as a hint that the Duchess has already given birth to the royal baby in secret.
It’s been expected that Prince Harry will take paternity leave following the birth of his and Meghan’s first child. This, some believe, could mean that the baby was born as recently as Sunday or Monday.
A royal aide said: “He had always planned to go but with the birth of his child due it was not announced in advance in case he was no longer able to attend. He is pleased he is able to attend.”
Kensington Palace said: “His Royal Highness will then travel to The Hague to officially launch the one year countdown to the Invictus Games The Hague 2020.”
Also, it was revealed yesterday that The Queen visited Meghan and Harry at their new home in Frogmore Cottage and this fueled speculation that Meghan has already given birth.
However, there has been no official confirmation yet that the baby has arrived. This comes as no surprise as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex released a statement weeks ago, revealing that the birth of their baby will be kept private as they intend to enjoy their new baby with family and settle into life as new parents first, before making the news public.
