When Is Meghan Markle's Due Date?

Raise your hand if you've actively looked for news about Meghan Markle's pregnancy in the past week.

We kind of expected that, to be honest. The Meghan Markle baby hype is a very real thing, and it begs the question — when will this baby-obsessed madness end? Well tough luck, royal haters, because it's only just beginning.

Markle and her husband Prince Harry announced the impending arrival of their first child right before jetting off on a royal tour of Australia, but thanks to royal sources, we can calculate just how long we can expect the Duchess of Sussex to don maternity wear.

Kensington Palace already clarified that Meghan and Harry will welcome Baby Sussex in spring 2019, but a People source added that as of October 15, Markle was 12 weeks along. According to Baby Center's calculation tool, this puts the baby's due date at April 15, 2019.

This means the newborn's potential birthday is only a few short days away from both great-grandma Queen Elizabeth, who was born on April 21, and cousin Prince Louis, who was born on April 23. Maybe the baby will even share a birthday with one of them!

Can you imagine a joint 1st/94th birthday party for Meghan and Harry's baby and the queen? We're keeping our fingers firmly crossed for April 21.
