UK News | Published:

The royal mother-to-be has said she is six months pregnant and does not know whether she is having a girl or a boy.

With the Duchess of Sussex revealing that her due date is late April or early May, who might the new royal baby share their birthday with?

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Meghan’s latest comments have forced us into action, and while we’re convinced it’ll be an early April baby, there’s every chance the latest royal will share a birthday with his or her Great Nan.”

The baby looks set to arrive around 11-and-a-half months after Harry and Meghan’s wedding – and before their first wedding anniversary on May 19.

Harry’s older brother Prince William, now the Duke of Cambridge, was born in June 1982 – 11 months after Diana wed Charles in July 1981.
