If all the buzz surrounding Meghan Markle is true, there’s a strong likelihood she has already given birth to baby Sussex.
The noise surrounding this rumor gained volume on Sunday when Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland, was reported to have arrived in England. Now, if one were to surmise that a mom would arrive to be by her daughter’s side before she gave birth, it’s not out of the realm of possibility that Meghan could have given birth sometime between her mom’s arrival and today.
Also, on April 15, Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, announced they’ll be visiting Germany May 7 for a three day tour. And since it’s assumed they’re both expected to be nearby when the royal baby is born, it’s probably also safe to assume Meghan is expected to give birth before the trip begins. So if she’s already given birth, all of this information adds up.
Couple this with the facts we already know: Meghan and Harry don’t plan to announce their baby’s arrival until days after it’s born, and Meghan’s due date has been announced several times as late April/early May.
SheKnows speculates Meghan could have gone into early labor:
“Meghan could have been experiencing early signs of labor or possibly have been informed by her doctor that baby Sussex’s arrival was imminent. When you’re that close to the end of your pregnancy, doctor’s appointments typically take place weekly — and given that she’s a royal, perhaps even more frequently. Suffice it to say, Meghan and Harry probably had a pretty good beat on when their baby might make its big debut.”
Meghan also missed Easter service Sunday, which was also the Queen’s birthday. According to the Daily Mail‘s royal correspondent Rebecca English, it wasn’t exactly a surprise.
No, I don’t believe she will be there. That’s certainly not what was being said this week – she is days away from having her baby, after all.

Even if Meghan has not yet given birth, it’s likely we can expect to hear about a royal arrival sooner than later.
