A boy or a girl: this is what most Britons will think about until Meghan or Harry answer the tricky question. The happy and smiling Duchess said it would be a surprise for them as well.

Well, we still need to wait for it a little while longer. Since Markle is already 7 months pregnant, Baby Sussex is expected to be born in late April or early May. Royal author Victoria Arbiter noted on her Twitter that this is a great time, as the child’s birthday will be around the same period as her great-grandmother’s and her cousins’ – Charlotte and Louis. Although some experts believe that the baby might be born a bit earlier than everyone expects.

By the way, not so long ago, Arbiter also shared her opinion on why the Dukes of Sussex “hide” the baby’s gender. According to tradition, the royal family is allowed to do this, but it isn’t common to find it out in advance. Moreover, it concerns not only the Windsors. Many British people prefer to do the same. Since some people believe there are too few pleasant surprises in life, what could be more exciting than finding out who lived in the mother's tummy all these months.

According to rumors, Princess Diana knew the sex of both sons long before they were born, and she also hid the fact that the second child was a boy from her spouse. Andrew Morton in his book Diana: Her True Story confirms one interesting point. He claimed Prince Charles really wanted a daughter. Even his jokes were awkward when he first saw Harry. Probably this was the reason for not revealing the baby’s gender.
