The royal baby’s arrival may be closer than we think! Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla just dropped a major hint about Meghan Markle’s due date, and it's so soon.

Clarence House announced on Monday, April 15, that Charles and Camilla will be embarking on a trip to Germany from May 7 to May 10—a date that's just three weeks away.

As People pointed out, however, Charles, 70—who walked Meghan, 37, down the aisle at her wedding to his son Prince Harry in May and was “very involved” in planning their wedding—and Camilla, 71, are unlikely to miss the birth of their newest grandchild.

Charles has also reportedly been incredibly supportive of Meghan since the nuptials — he even nicknamed her after the metal tungsten for her “strong and unbending” nature.

Given the evidence, one could safely assume that means the Duchess of Sussex will be giving birth ahead of their departure next month.

The timeline also matches up with reports that the Suits alum previously told a woman at an appearance that her son or daughter would be born in the month of April. “For those who want to know about these things: Meghan told one lady in the crowd that she is six months pregnant and another woman that her due date is around April 👶,” ITV News royal editor Chris Ship tweeted on January 14.

If that wasn’t enough proof enough that the little one is almost here, there’s also another hint that the Internet found courtesy of Markle's longtime friend and wedding makeup artist, Daniel Martin.

The Daily Mail reports that Martin recently revealed he’ll making his way back to the states by May 5. (He's currently in England and was the first guest at the couple's new Windsor home.)

“I’m very excited to share that I’ll be making my first ever main stage appearance @themakeupshow on Sunday, May 5th from 10am-11:30am,” Martin wrote on Instagram on Saturday, April 12.

If the buzz surrounding his overseas travels is true, that would mean the former actress will have already welcomed her child by the aforementioned date.

It may be a while before we get to see the newest royal addition, however: Kensington Palace announced last week that the couple had made “a personal decision to keep the plans around the arrival of their baby private,” adding, "The Duke and Duchess look forward to sharing the exciting news with everyone once they have had an opportunity to celebrate privately as a new family.”

Either way, we’ll be over here counting down the days!
