Did Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Accidentally Reveal Baby Sussex’s Gender?

Meghan Markle’s due date is right around the corner. The Duchess of Sussex and her husband, Prince Harry are expecting their first child in late April or May 2019. The duo is super prepared to welcome their new bundle of joy. They are moving from their 2-bedroom apartment at Kensington Palace to a sprawling estate at Frogmore House where they have already furnished Baby Sussex’s nursery.

Breaking with royal tradition, Markle just had a baby shower in New York City –thrown by her best friends. In her excitement, it looks like Markle and Prince Harry might have just accidentally revealed Baby Sussex’s gender to their friends.

Did Meghan Markle and Prince Harry accidently reveal Baby Sussex’s gender?

Though the British Royal Family technically aren’t allowed to reveal the gender or due dates of their babies–Markle walks to the beat of her own drum. As a result, the duchess and the prince might have decided to find out their baby’s gender. According to US Weekly, during Markle’s baby shower she told her friends that she and the prince are expecting a baby boy.

Why are royal fans speculating the couple is having a baby girl?

Prince Harry had previously said that he was hoping for a girl. Just after the royal couple announced they were expecting in Oct. 2018, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were in Australia when a fan yelled out, “I hope it’s a girl,” to which Harry replied, “So do I.” Many fans assumed that that Prince Harry was hinting at his child’s gender, but now –we’re not too sure.

Prince Harry isn’t the only one who is hoping for a girl. His father, Prince Charles always wanted a daughter and he’s very close to his granddaughter –Princess Charlotte. According to Good Housekeeping, “Princess Diana had said she saw Harry’s gender prior the birth but refrained from telling Charles because she was worried about what he would think.”

Prince Harry already has a nickname for Baby Sussex

Though we refer to the unborn royal as Baby Sussex — Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have their own adorable nickname for their little one. Apparently, Prince Harry refers to his unborn child as a “royal-to-be” and “our little bump.” 

Do Prince Harry and Meghan Markle actually know their baby’s gender?

In early Feb. 2019 — Markle was filmed saying, “We don’t know,” when asked if she is having a boy or a girl. The duchess explained, “Yes, we decided to keep it a secret.” Unless the royal doctor just recently revealed the baby’s sex to the royals the exclusive source who claims that Markle revealed the gender at her baby shower might be just pulling out leg.
