Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced last week that they’re planning to keep the arrival of their first child private, unlike the births of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s kids. So, royal fans are going to take any clue about Baby Sussex’s arrival they can get. The latest point of interest? Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla’s next royal tour.
The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall just announced that they’ll visit Germany from May 7 to 10, which means it’s likely that Harry and Meghan’s baby will arrive before then, People points out. Meghan had previously hinted to fans that her child is due at the end of April (this month!) and other reports have predicted her due date to be in early May. Either way, Charles and Camilla will probably take off after the baby is born and they’ve been able to meet the newest member of the family.
Prince Charles has previously expressed his excitement for another grandchild. After the Sussexes first announced Meghan’s pregnancy in October, the Prince of Wales said he “absolutely” toasted to the news during a public appearance at a distillery. “Several times, at the moment!” he jokingly added.
Prince William might also be traveling around the time of Baby Sussex’s arrival, but there’s a possibility he won’t be around for the child’s birth at all. He is set to travel to New Zealand in “late April” to honour victims of tragic mosque shootings in Christchurch, according to an announcement from Kensington Palace. (The exact date has not yet been disclosed.) Will he be M.I.A. if the delivery happens later this month?
