Is Baby Sussex Here? A New Hint About Meghan's Actual Due Date Leaks From British Betters

May 6, 2019 12:41

Last month, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry made an unprecedented decision regarding their baby.

A statement from the Palace revealed the royal couple’s decision to keep the details about the baby’s birth under wraps until they’ve celebrated the new arrival privately. Such a choice proved to be divisive, as some commentators praised the royal couple, and some said the privacy angered the media and royal fans.

The statement didn’t make it clear whether Baby Sussex’s arrival would be announced that same day, which has generated speculations that the baby is already here and we just don’t know it!

Many royal watchers are convinced that Meghan has already given birth, and there’s a credible sign that it may very well be true.

Meghan’s due date bets are on hold

British bookmakers, including Coral and Paddy Power, have suspended betting on the date of Baby Sussex’s arrival.

It’s not hard to guess why! A statement from Coral reads:

The announcement of the birth of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's first child is expected any day now and if some speculation is correct, it may have already arrived therefore we have pulled the plug on our birth date betting.

Paddy Power’s statement expresses the same sentiment:

We've suspended betting on which day Harry and Meghan's baby will arrive following a huge increase in wagers this evening which indicate that someone knows something – and perhaps the child is already born.

As for Meghan and Harry’s baby’s likely name, betters’ top pick at the moment is Ivy, followed by Diana, Alice, Victoria, and Elizabeth (in case the baby is a girl), and the more traditional Arthur, James, and Alexander if it’s a boy.
