Meghan Markle and Prince Harry announced they were expecting their first child in October and its been some long six months for royal baby watchers since. Earlier this year the Duchess of Sussex revealed she was due to give birth in late April or early May. And not long ago, the royal couple revealed they would be keeping the birth of their son or daughter out of the public eye to have the “opportunity to celebrate privately as a new family” first.
This means that unlike with the births of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s children, we won’t know anything about when Meghan goes into labour.
After the statement a flurry of reports and claims have emerged the former American actress may already have given birth.
After all, the duchess has not been seen out in public since March 19 – over a month ago.
Read below to see all the clues suggesting Meghan has already welcomed her first child.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex Instagram account launched less than a month ago, but it’s already become a massive part of a theory the pair have already had their baby.
On Tuesday the royal power couple posted a photo thanking the public for donating money to various charities instead of getting them gifts for the royal baby.
The post read: “Whether a $5 donation, £1000 contribution, offering to volunteer, or spreading the word, you’ve played your part.”
The pair then signed off the post with “The Duke and Duchess (and Baby Sussex)”.
The Instagram caption has led some fans to believe it is a hint the baby has already been born.
And this isn’t the only sign Prince Harry and Meghan has welcomed their child.
Meghan’s good friend and make-up artist Daniel Martin was recently spotted in Windsor near the royal couple’s new home at Frogmore Cottage.
Mr Martin did Meghan’s makeup for her wedding to Prince Harry 11 months ago and he also attended her baby shower earlier this year.
As the American stylist posted an Instagram story showing his location some royal baby watchers are questioning whether he is in town to help his friend prepare for her first picture with the newborn.
After Buckingham Palace released the statement Meghan and Prince Harry would keep the birth of Baby Sussex private, speculation have emerged the royals will introduce their child with a photo on their newly launched Instagram account.
So while we wait for an official confirmation, fans will likely have their eyes glued to the Instagram account waiting for the announcement.
