Could it be? With Meghan Markle due to give birth any day now, the whole world is seemingly watching for clues that the duchess has gone into labor. Eagle-eyed fans noticed an ambulance parked near the duke and duchess’s new digs at Frogmore Cottage, sending them into baby fever overdrive.
According to the U.K.'s Express, "an ambulance [was] spotted parked near Frogmore Cottage," as reported on Friday morning. What’s more, a helicopter was also spotted near their home, leading many to believe the royal baby’s birth was “imminent.”
It would certainly make sense: ITV royal editor Chris Ship told Good Morning Britain on Friday, April 26, that Meghan’s due date is basically here. "We know the baby is due, in fact I can tell you that the due date is pretty much today,” he revealed to viewers. “Today, tomorrow, we really are in the realms of imminent arrival.”
However, according to Inside Edition, the ambulance spotting is just a false alarm, stating that Telegraph associate editor Camilla Tominey claimed the ambulance is just a "driver training vehicle picking up food for students while out and about all day, according to South Central Ambulance Service," adding, "Keep calm tweeps. It could be another few days yet."
Just one day ago, Prince Harry also seemingly confirmed that his wife had not yet given birth when he was spotted out and about for the Anzac Day Service of Commemoration and Thanksgiving at Westminster Abbey with his sister-in-law, Kate Middleton.
The Duchess of Cambridge was also at Meghan’s side on Easter, according to Harper’s Bazaar.
“William and Catherine visited because Meghan was unable to attend the service,” an insider revealed to the magazine. “They wanted to be supportive and see how she is doing. It was a lovely afternoon.”
So while Kate may or may not become an aunt today, it's safe to say that this baby is coming—and soon.
In addition to Ship, the Suits alum dropped a hint to the crowd in January 2019 while appearing in Birkenhead, Merseyside—her first royal engagement of the year—telling fans that her little one was due “around April.” We narrowed it down even further earlier this month, when Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla announced an upcoming trip to Germany on May 7—a likely clue that the newest royal will arrive before then.
According to Ship, despite Kensington Palace’s earlier announcement that Meghan and Harry will “keep the plans around the arrival of their baby private,” we’ll at least be in the know when the time does come.
"We will be told when she’s comfortably in labor, when she’s given birth to a boy or a girl and then there will be a photo call of some sort some days afterwards, very small, very controlled and very much arranged by the Sussexes themselves," he said on GMB.
Hey, we'll take it!
