Meghan is now thought to be nesting at the couple's new home, Frogmore Cottage in Windsor, in the last few weeks of her pregnancy. It continues, "Their Royal Highnesses wanted you to know the impact of your support - the direct effect your donation, energy, and action made!" The response was clearly overwhelming, since the Duke and Duchess of Sussex took to Instagram to thank their fans on Monday (April 15). "YOU chose to be part of the collective good, and you have a made a real difference".
As you may be aware, Meghan and Harry made an official announcement later that month but there was considerable speculation before this.
Bookmakers have slashed the odds for the royal baby's due date in the lead-up to Easter.
They will earn approximately $126,000 (£70K) a year and live in Windsor, at Frogmore Cottage with the Sussexes. It would certainly mean a double celebration for the royal family as the Queen is turning 93 on Easter Sunday.
So it's very possible that in future the new royal baby will have joint birthday parties with one of their little cousins.
"The Duke and Duchess look forward to sharing the exciting news with everyone once they've had an opportunity to celebrate privately as a new family".
"The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are very grateful for the goodwill they have received from people throughout the United Kingdom and around the world as they prepare to welcome their baby", a statement released from Kensington Palace read. Fortunately, there have been a few clues that may reveal whether the baby is a boy or girl. Since Kate and Will have a nanny to help, and they're all well-versed in caring for young kids, it's possible Kate and Will would want to spend some time with their nephew while Meghan and Harry recuperated a bit.
The exact date is a secret but one royal commentator believes that the first sign of Meghan's pregnancy in public was when she attended Princess Eugenie's wedding in October 2018.
