It’s very possible!

This morning, Kensington Palace announced that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, are expecting their first child together.

The weekend was filled with rumours that the pair are expecting after they arrived at Princess Eugenie’s Windsor Castle wedding.

And how fans are heavily speculating that their child was conceived during their trip to Dublin in July.

People rushed to Twitter to speculate… and we have to say, it’s not unlikely:

The official statement released by Kensington Palace says that the 37-year-old is due to give birth in spring 2019 and of course, now royal fans are trying to pin down an exact timeframe.

Earlier today, ITV News Royal Editor, Chris Ship tweeted about the news, estimating that the Duchess of Sussex is about twelve weeks pregnant.

Now, there’s no confirmation on whether this is true or not but it is commonplace to wait until the 12-week mark, the end of the first trimester, before sharing baby news with people.

Meghan and Harry, proud parents-to-be, are thought to have shared their news with the royal family including the Queen, Prince Phillip and Prince Charles at the royal wedding on Friday which would suggest there’s some truth to the 12 weeks estimate.

If this is the case then you could expect that Meghan is likely to give birth in April but again this is all just speculation and her due date will remain a closely-guarded secret as is standard procedure from those in the know at Kensington Palace.
