Meghan Markle Reveals Her Due Date on a Walkabout With Prince Harry


In the past, Paddy Power has suspended betting on other royal announcements such as Meghan and Harry's engagement and pregnancy, after an insurgence of bets came through that clearly favoured a particular outcome.

Meghan and Harry were on a walkabout in Birkenhead this morning on a day of engagements on The Wirral.

Meghan, wearing a striking purple dress from Aritzia's Babaton collection and a vivid red coat by Sentaler, held on to her sizeable baby bump as she chatted to waiting dignitaries. According to royal biographer Andrew Morton, Meghan is very into food: "He loves cooking, exploring new foods, and experimenting with fresh flavours".

The statue, which is named after one of the Birkenhead war poet's poems, "Futility", is cast in bronze and represents an exhausted World War One solider.

They will also visit organisations supporting vulnerable women and local youth. While visiting Tomorrow's Women Wirral, the Duke and Duchess heard first-hand accounts of the women's experiences, before visiting the Inspiration Hall.

A report from Daily Mail says the top female officer - the first woman to ever work as a key security officer for the Royals - is leaving Scotland Yard. They then met local veterans and members of the Birkenhead Institute Old Boys, of which Owen was a member.

The royal couple will meet young members as they take part in a number of activities and workshops throughout the centre, before unveiling a plaque to mark the visit.

Their visit was welcomed by Frank Field, Birkenhead's MP, who said he had invited the couple to his constituency, with the planned day reflecting their interests, allowing them to get a real feel for the area's people.
