Baby Sussex is due soon

While the details of Meghan Markle’s due date continue to be a mystery, it’s known that she will have the baby sometime in the spring. As we’ve now moved into that season, it’s time to bump up the royal baby watch!

When asked recently about the baby’s arrival, Markle revealed that possibly the baby will come sooner than expected. Welsh Secretary of State Alun Cairns had asked Markle: “All in good order? I’m sure everyone is asking,” to which she shared: “No, it’s actually very sweet. It’s a very nurturing sweet thing to ask. We’re nearly there!”

When Markle was asked during a visit to Birkenhead when she was having the baby, however, she noted, “end of April, early May.”

Royals share the same zodiac sign

Interestingly, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s baby may share the same sign with Princess Charlotte, Prince Louis, and the Queen. If the couple’s new addition is born in late April or early May, he or she will be a Taurus, which is the zodiac sign for those born between April 20 and May 20.

According to, Taurses are described as: “Smart, ambitious, and trustworthy, Taurus is the anchor of the Zodiac. Amazing friends, colleagues, and partners, Taureans value honesty above all else and are proud that their personal relationships tend to be drama free. Bulls get the reputation of being stubborn, but they’re not always stuck in their ways. This searching sign is willing to see another point of view, but they won’t flip-flop on an opinion just to make someone else happy. They will shift their thinking only if they truly have a change of heart.”

Princess Charlotte was born on May 2, Prince Louis’ birthday is April 23, and the Queen’s birthday is April 21.

The Queen’s work ethic is a characteristic of a Taurus

The Queen reportedly values working hard, as a palace aide told Vanity Fair last month: “She respects hard work and loyalty above everything.” 

Dermot Morrah, author of the Illustrated Story of Twenty-one Years in the life of the Heir Presumptive spoke to this characteristic of the queen more fully: “She is a hard worker… She hates to leave any task unfinished, or to abandon any problem until she has mastered it. She is always ready to take great trouble over small things, especially when she suspects that things which are small to her may be of great importance to humbler people.” 

Baby Sussex could potentially be another sign

Given the range of months for a spring due date, Baby Sussex might not fall in the window of the Taurus star sign. Depending on his or her birthday, the baby could be an Aries or a Gemini.

Aries falls between March 21 and April 19, while Gemini covers birthdays from May 21 to June 20.
