When Kensington Palace announced Meghan Markle's pregnancy last October, the statement said the baby will be born in the Spring of 2019. Later reports narrowed the time down by saying Baby Sussex will be born in late April or early May, but the exact date has been kept a secret.

Usually, the exact date or sex of a royal baby is not revealed beforehand. The expecting parents might know the due date, but the Duke and Duchess admitted they do not know the sex of their baby because they want to be surprised. However, most predictions are that the couple will have a girl.

It is at the end of April and May will be here soon and so will Baby Sussex. There are some signs that the baby could be born at any moment.

1. Meghan Missing from Easter Church Service

Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, was noticeably missing from the Easter church service at St. George's Chapel in Windsor Castle on Sunday, April 21. Other royal family members attended. Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex, walked alongside his brother and sister-in-law, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Usually, the four royals are photographed together as they walk together when attending events.

Meghan was absent during the last days of her pregnancy. That is a very big sign that the 37-year-old mother-to-be is on the verge of giving birth at any time now.

2. Prince Harry Changed His Schedule

Prince Harry is changing his schedule, according to the Royal Family website. For example, he is ambassador to the Commonwealth's youth branch, but he will not attend the Anzac Day ceremony on April 25. The Duke of Gloucester will take Prince Harry’s place instead.

Last year, Prince Harry laid a wreath at London's Cenotaph to honor lost Commonwealth servicemen. More than likely he will be disappointed to be absent from the ceremony this year. It is understandable that he wants to be close by his wife when she goes into labor.

3. Arrival of Meghan's Mother Doria Ragland

Meghan's mother, Doria Ragland, has already arrived to be near her only daughter when she gives birth. Baby Sussex will be Doria's first grandchild. When Doria found out Meghan was pregnant, she said she was happy and excited about becoming a first-time grandmother.

It stands to reason that Doria would go to the UK as close to possible to her daughter's due date. At one time, reports went out that the new grandmother would move there to live. That was just a rumor because Doria will not be a live-in nanny. She will return to her permanent home in Los Angeles, California.

4. Prince Charles and Camilla's Tour

Clarence House announced that Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, will be traveling to Germany on a four-day tour from May 7 through May 10. The grandparents will either go before the baby is born or after the baby is born.

More than likely they scheduled their trip days after the birth of Prince Harry's first child. Based on that information, Baby Sussex might be born before May 7.

5. Arrival of Meghan's Makeup Artist

Meghan's longtime makeup artist is already in London before the royal birth. Like Prince Charles and Camilla, Daniel Martin has scheduled his trip in conjunction with the time of Meghan's delivery.

The American makeup artist flew to London to get Meghan camera ready for the photo shoot the royals promised the public after the birth of their baby. The Duke and Duchess will not show off their baby on the steps of St. Mary's Hospital. That had been a tradition for over four decades starting with Princess Anne, Princess Diana, and Kate Middleton.

Kensington Palace issued a statement a couple of weeks ago that the Duke and Duchess will keep the birth of their baby private. However, an announcement will go out to the public when Meghan goes into labor.

Other Signs

Preparations have been made for the birth of Baby Sussex. Meghan has had her two baby showers; one in New York City and one in London.

Prince Harry and Meghan have moved into their Frogmore Cottage and Baby Sussex's nursery is ready.

As seen above, some members of the Royal Family have changed their schedules surrounding the due date of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's first child.

It seems as though the baby might be born before the first anniversary of the parents who got married on May 19, 2018.
