Prince William Gives Surprising Baby Sussex Update and Fans Are Freaking Out

Everyone wants to know when Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s baby arrives, but royal baby watchers feel totally in the dark. It sounds like Harry’s brother, Prince William, doesn’t know any more than any of the royal fans, based on his answer to the question: “Any sign of the royal baby?”

Prince William visited New Zealand

During Prince William’s visit to New Zealand, he spoke at a mosque, addressing the recent terrorism attacks. Kensington Palace explained the nature of his visit, sharing he was there to “pay tribute to those affected by the Christchurch mosques terrorist attack, and recognize the incredible empathy and unity displayed by the people of New Zealand.”

Prince William called the attack at the Al Noor mosque in Christchurch, where more than 40 worshippers were murdered on March 15, an “unspeakable hate” and noted: “I stand with you in firm belief that the forces of love will always prevail over the forces of hate.”

Prince William shared that the terrorists wanted to promote “fear and distrust,” but “New Zealanders had other plans. The people of Al Noor and Linwood mosques had other plans. In a moment of acute pain, you stood up and you stood together. And in reaction to tragedy, you achieved something remarkable.”

Prince William was asked about the baby

When Prince William met up with fans during his New Zealand visit, of course, there were those hoping to get a Baby Sussex update from someone who would likely be the most in the know.

William, it turned out, either didn’t have any information or was doing his best to stay mum on the topic and not given anything away.

A video shows the moment William was asked, “Any sign of the royal baby?” and he shared: “I haven’t got my phone on me, I have no idea. You guys will find out before I do at this rate!”

So far, no one has found out anything because Prince Harry and Markle asked for privacy during this time, but there has been wild speculation about when the baby will arrive or if Markle gave birth already and the couple isn’t yet sharing the news.

Prince William and Kate Middleton visited Meghan Markle

It’s interesting to note as well that Prince William and Kate Middleton paid a visit to Markle at Frogmore Cottage following the Easter Sunday church service in Windsor. Markle didn’t attend the service, as fans believed she was at home resting for the baby’s arrival but, according to Harper’s Bazaar, William and Middleton popped in to check on Markle.

The report noted that the Cambridges brought a housewarming gift along, with a source telling BAZAAR: “William and Catherine visited because Meghan was unable to attend the service. They wanted to be supportive and see how she is doing. It was a lovely afternoon.”

Four days later, Prince Harry and Middleton attended a service of commemoration and thanksgiving for Anzac Day at Westminster Abbey. Many royal baby watchers assumed that Prince Harry’s attendance at the service meant Markle hadn’t yet given birth.
