MEGHAN MARKLE is pregnant with her first child. Earlier this week, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were pictured stepping out in London, with the Duchess giving a glimpse of her growing baby bump. When is her due date?

Meghan Markle, 37, and Prince Harry, 34, are expecting their first child together. The pair married in May this year, having announced their engagement to the world in November 2017. In October 2018, Kensington Palace confirmed Meghan’s pregnancy, announcing that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were to become parents for the first time in the near future. So, when is the next royal baby due to be born?

However, Kensington Palace have provided some information on when they are expecting the happy arrival.

In the public announcement earlier this year, the statement revealed that the royal – and retired actor – is due to give birth in spring 2019.

According to the calendar, that means that the baby could be expected between March 20, 2019 right up until June 21, 2019. The official statement read: “Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Sussex is expecting a baby in the Spring of 2019.

“Their Royal Highnesses have appreciated all of the support they have received from people around the world since their wedding in May and are delighted to be able to share this happy news with the public.”

Meanwhile at the time, some reports claimed that Meghan could be about 12 weeks pregnant, meaning that she could be likely to give birth in April or May next year.

The news about the impending arrival of a royal baby came shortly after Prince William and Kate Middleton welcomed their third child into the world: Prince Louis.

The youngster, who is the youngest nephew of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, was born in April this year at the Lindo wing of St Mary’s hospital.

Earlier this week, the Duchess was pictured making her exit from a carol service in Chelsea, London, with Prince Harry.
