The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s first baby is due “any day” now, a royal source tells ET. The happy news comes just ahead of Queen Elizabeth‘s 93rd birthday, making it possible that the monarch could share the special day with her newest great-grandchild.
While ET’s source notes that Easter — which falls on the Queen’s birthday this year — is always a family day for the royals, Meghan’s appearance at Windsor Castle for Sunday’s traditional service is up in the air. It is very much “wait and see,” the source says.
Though she may not make it to Easter services, Meghan is likely busy getting settled in Frogmore Cottage, where she and Harry recently moved. ET’s source reveals that the couple have had lots of family visiting their new abode near Windsor Castle, and adds that Meghan’s closest friends have also been there to help her get ready for the impending birth.
Moving when you’re nine months pregnant is not easy, the source says, but Meghan has been her normal organized self just “enjoying her pregnancy and anticipating the days ahead.”
“It is such a happy and exciting time for Meghan,” the source says. “She looks absolutely radiant and is taking each day at a time. [She is] looking forward to becoming a mother.”
Though the birth could happen anytime now, royal fans won’t know exactly when Baby Sussex makes his or her arrival. Meghan and Harry announcedthat — unlike Prince William and Kate Middleton — they will not pose for photos with the newborn outside of the hospital, rather they’ll share photos taken on the grounds of Windsor Castle at a later date.
“Meghan Markle does not want the pressure of having to pose on the steps for cameras so soon after childbirth,” a source recently told ET, adding that, while the couple is “extremely excited” for the birth of their first child, they intend to “enjoy the magic of childhood without any undue expectations.”
