This isn’t the first time Meghan has hinted that her baby is due in April.

The 37-year-old pregnant royal kicked off the Sydney Invictus Games in October with three stacked rings with different coloured stones by Canadian brand Ecksand

Royal blogger @DuchyOfSuccess noticed that the stones may represent the birthstones of Harry and their future son or daughter.

“I’m hoping Meghan’s stacked rings represent their birthstones and Baby Sussex is an April baby,” she shared on Twitter.

In addition to revealing that she’s due in late April, Meghan also responded to a young fan who asked whether she was having a boy or a girl.

Kitty Dudley, 9, from St Anne’s Primary School in nearby Rockferry, said, “Meghan came up to me and asked me how old I was and where I went to school. I could see her bump and I asked if she was having a boy or a girl and she said, ‘We don’t know whether it’s a boy or girl, we are keeping it as a surprise’.”
