“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are overjoyed to be expecting their second child.”
However, royal commentators have predicted that Meghan will give birth around the end of Spring.
When the Sussexes’ announced their baby news they released a black and white picture which highlighted the Duchess’ prominent baby bump.
After the baby announcement, royal commentator Camilla Tominey told Today Extra: “Normally you would expect news to come along when she is three months, but we think she is about five months.”
If Ms Tominey’s predictions are correct, Meghan and Harry’s second child is likely to be due in the middle of 2021.
A source also told Us Weekly: “Meghan fell pregnant again toward the end of last year. The baby is due at the end of Spring.”
Prince Harry’s cousin and friend Zara Tindall is also thought to be expecting her third child in May making her and Meghan’s possibly due dates very close.
Prince Harry is known to share a special bond with his cousin Zara after growing up together, showing support to each other and sharing a love of sport.
