Meghan Markle and Prince Harry baby watch has officially taken over my life. It seems like every hour some new tidbit of information comes out that hints at when the Duchess of Sussex is—or isn't—giving birth. When her mother, Doria Ragland, flew into London on April 21, everyone thought that meant Baby Sussex was en route. But this conflicted with reports that Markle's due date is in late April or early May. The Internet finally decided on an early-May birth when Baby Sussex hadn't arrived and news broke Prince Charles is traveling to Germany on May 7. He and Markle are apparently close, so there's no way he'd miss his grandchild's birth. Right?
Well, now we have even more evidence Meghan Markle is giving birth in early May. It was just announced on Wednesday, May 1, that Prince Harry will be traveling to the Netherlands on May 8 and 9, which means it's likely Baby Sussex will arrive some time before then.
This news comes courtesy of royals expert Omid Scobie, who tweeted, "JUST IN: Prince Harry will visit The Netherlands on May 8 and 9 (unless Baby Sussex arrives that late!). While there he will undertake an engagement in Amsterdam (details TBA) and then travel to The Hague to launch the one year countdown to @WeAreInvictus Games The Hague 2020."
He continued, "It’s worth noting that this @InvictusGamesNL trip has been in the works since last year. And if Harry has to go away for one night just after the birth, Meghan has mom Doria by her side (and other visitors soon-to-be en route!)."
Of course, there's a theory floating around that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have already welcomed their first child. The Sussexes are keeping this birth relatively private, after all: On April 11 Buckingham Palace announced Markle and Prince Harry will be privately celebrating the newest addition to their family before sharing her or him with the world.
