If you’ve had a baby, you’ll know that going into labour can
be quite an ordeal. Sometimes it goes smoothly, sometimes the process can take
far longer than you (and all your doctors) anticipated.
If you’ve never given birth, but you’re a fan of all things
Royal Family, you’re probably feeling just a bit of anticipation yourself.
Meghan Markle, the darling of the Royals, is due to give birth…. sometime soon. But when exactly? Nobody actually knows. Markle and the family have been low key about the due date, so of course, speculation will swirl whenever there is the slightest hint that Markle might have gone into labour.
Has Meghan Markle gone into labour?
Twitter went into a tailspin on Friday afternoon with
speculation that Meghan Markle has gone into labour. Rumours started
circulating after an ambulance was spotted near to the royal couple’s new home,
Frogmore Cottage in Windsor.
As it turns out, it was just a false alarm.
Telegraph royal editor, Camilla Tominey, quickly gave the internet a reality check.
“Ambulance spotted near Frogmore Cottage yesterday is a driver training vehicle picking up food for students while out and about all day,” she tweeted, after contacting South Central Ambulance Service. “Keep calm tweeps. It could be another few days yet.”
When is Meghan Markle’s due date?
The Palance isn’t sharing details of how, where, or when
Meghan will give birth to the newest royal baby. But the general consensus is
that the public will be told once the Duchess has gone into labour.
Markle is due to give birth “any day now”.
Baby Sussex: Boy or a girl?
Again, we don’t know and the Palace isn’t sharing anything.
But, as with the labour speculation, fans also think Markle might have already dropped a hint about what the baby will be called. When she was still working on Suits, she said in an interview:
“I’ve always coveted the Cartier French Tank watch. When I found out Suits had been picked up for our third season – which, at the time, felt like such a milestone – I totally splurged and bought the two-tone version.
“I had it engraved on the back, ‘To M.M. From M.M.’ and I plan to give it to my daughter one day. That’s what makes pieces special, the connection you have to them.”
There are also some suggestions that once the couple and the baby have settled, they might consider a move to the African continent.
