Convincing conspiracy theories abound that Meghan Markle has already given birth.
An ambulance was seen near Meghan and Harry’s Windsor mansion last week, and Harry has announced a trip to the Netherlands next week, fuelling rumours Baby Sussex has arrived healthy, so Harry can head overseas for two days, no problem – Meghan’s mum Doria Ragland is on hand to help, along with a full staff, after all.
But a strong sign that Meghan is yet to give birth comes in the form of an innocuous seeming Instagram comment the @SussexRoyal account left on the @KensingtonRoyal account, AKA William and Kate’s account, overnight.
Wishing Princess Charlotte a happy fourth birthday, Meghan and Harry wrote:
“Happy Birthday Charlotte! Lots of love, H and M xo”

Thank you for the lovely messages for Princess Charlotte’s fourth birthday! The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to share three new photographs of Princess Charlotte ahead of her fourth birthday. The photographs were taken in April by The Duchess at Kensington Palace and at their home in Norfolk.
If Baby Sussex had arrived, wouldn’t they instead sign-off “the Sussex family” or “the Sussexes” or “H, M and BS [Baby Sussex]”?
Nobody puts Baby Sussex in the corner.
Just an instinct.
Meghan’s due date was Sunday April 28. The couple previously said they would spend a few days celebrating “privately” before announcing the news.
