Meghan Markle’s Editor’s Letter Appears To Confirm She Knew Her Child's Gender All Along Despite Claiming She Didn’t

Date August 1, 2019 15:09

When Prince Harry and Meghan Markle set off for their royal tour to Australia, the palace announced that the couple is expecting their first baby.

As the pregnancy progressed, the Sussex duo was asked numerous times who they are expecting. Meghan was once filmed saying she and her husband don’t know as they decided to keep the gender in secret until the baby is born.

But some fans suspect that Meghan and Harry were lying to us.

The editor’s letter

The Duchess of Sussex wrote an editor’s letter for Vogue’s September issue, which she co-edited. In the letter, Meghan appears to confirm she and Prince Harry knew they were excepting a boy before he was born.

The new mom is believed to start working with the magazine in January – four months before she welcomed her son, Archie.

However, in the letter, Meghan referred to her child as ‘a baby boy’ when she wrote:

I was about five months pregnant when the process began and by the time you hold this issue in your hands, my husband and I will be holding our three-month-old baby boy in ours.

Traditionally, the gender of the royal baby is not announced to the public until he or she is born. The royal parents-to-be, historically, are not aware of the gender either.

We don’t know when exactly Meghan wrote her editor’s letter but could it be that she and Harry broke the protocol as they did many times before?
