Meghan recently let slip her due date of her first child with Prince Harry.

On their first joint engagement of 2019, the 37-year-old was overhead by several reporters revealing that their baby would be due in late April or early May.

The new parents-to-be are set to spend their first Valentine’s Day as a married couple apart though as Harry will be working away.

It’s also recently been revealed that Kensington Palace spend hours monitoring negative comments about Meghan and Kate. 

A source told Hello! magazine: “A lot of hours are being spent reviewing old material and moderating comments under posts. The Palace has always monitored comments but it’s a hugely time consuming thing.

“They can block certain words, but some of it is quite serious. Over the course of last year, with hundreds of thousands of comments, there were two or three that were violent threats.

“It’s something you have to manage because there’s no other way to control it… It follows a Kate vs Meghan narrative and some of the worst stuff is between Kate fans and Meghan fans. Arguments about who looks more appropriate, for example, that turn into personal attacks on other users.”

The backlash against the royals has led the publication to launch their #HelloToKindness campaign, which champions online positivity.
