Meghan Markle drops huge hint over royal baby’s gender and reveals due date

The Duchess of Sussex took the name suggestion from someone in the crowd in Birkenhead, Merseyside, and appeared to love the idea

Meghan Markle has dropped the biggest hint yet about her baby’s gender and appeared to reveal her due date.

The Duchess of Sussex also gave her backing to a name suggestion while meeting crowds on a royal visit in Birkenhead, Merseyside alongside Prince Harry .

The mum-to-be even told one lady in the crowd that she was six months pregnant and another that her due date is around April.

At another moment, Meghan asked the crowd, which was full of schoolchildren, what she should call the baby if it was a girl.

One said: “Amy” which Meghan replied was a “great name”.

Meghan who was with her assistant private secretary Amy Pickerill, seemed to love the name too.

The glowing Duchess can’t seem to keep her hands off her baby bump.

Dressed in a red coat and matching heels she is pictured cradling her large bump throughout today’s visit.

The couple have been working the crowd, with hugs for schoolchildren from Harry as the receive gifts including a giant teddy and flowers.

Along with Harry the royal pair are due to visit a number of organisations that support and empower groups within the local community.
The couple will firstly visit Hamilton Square to view a new sculpture to mark the 100th anniversary of war poet Wilfred Owen’s death.

They will then visit Tomorrow’s Women Wirral, an organisation that supports women in vulnerable circumstances and helps them make positive lifestyle choices and changes.

Finally they will visit the Hive Wirral Youth Zone.
