The Duchess of Sussex has let slip the due date of her and Prince Harry’s first child as she met locals in Birkenhead on Monday.
Meghan revealed that she is around six months pregnant while she chatted to well-wishers, who lined the streets to get a glimpse of the royal couple during their first joint royal engagement of the year.
The 37-year-old was overhead by several reporters revealing that their baby would be due in late April or early May during a brief exchange as she showed off her blossoming bump during their trip to the northwest.
Royal fans had previously speculated that, due to the size of the Duchess’ bump she could be due as early as March.
Meghan looked happy and relaxed as she chatted to well-wishers for 45 minutes – many of which had been queuing for hours to meet the couple – wearing a red wrap dress over a figure hugging purple dress from Babaton by Aritizia.
Prince Harry also gave a four-year-old a hug after spotting her sign ‘Gingers Unite – I love you Harry’.
The 34-year-old stopped to tell her: “I love this! Do you love your hair? The sign is amazing.”
Fans handed Meghan multiple bouquets of flowers as well as a gift of handmade paper flowers from a young fan from Fun Train Day Nursery.
The Duke and Duchess were on the trip to meet organisers of groups that support and empower groups within the local community.
Their first stop was at Birkenhead’s Hamilton Square to view a sculpture erected to mark the 100th anniversary of war poet Wilfred Owen’s death.
The couple then met local veterans and member of the Birkenhead Old Boys who played a part in the creation of the tribute.
Later, the couple will visit Tomorrow’s Women Wirral before moving on to the Hive Wirral Youth Zone.
