After what seems like the longest pregnancy ever, Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, finally gave birth on May 6th!
While we are all relieved that Meghan and the new royal addition is happy and healthy, let’s look back on her pregnancy journey that took the world by storm before we reveal every detail about Meghan and Harry’s firstborn.
It was on October 15, 2018, that the exciting news went public, a royal announcement was made at Kensington Palace just before the pair went on a 16-day tour to Australia.
They confirmed that the newest royal couple, Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry were expecting an addition to the family!
As you know, the news took the world by storm and it was only a matter of hours before the questions, rumors, and speculations began that would lead up to the birth.
One of the first things fans debated was which citizenship the baby will take on. An expert weighed in, according to Dr. Devyani Prabhat of the University of Bristol Law School the future royal will be automatically entitled to both citizenships, but speculation did not stop there!
Boy or Girl?
Will it be a boy, or will it be a girl is another question in everyone’s mind. The palace, however, has a strict tradition of keeping the baby’s gender mum until the last moment
Hilariously, throughout the pregnancy people were actually making bets with money about the sex of the baby! And yes, not giving away the gender is probably the only royal tradition Meghan is keeping.
Next… what gender would Prince Harry prefer?
