PREGNANT Meghan has hinted the royal baby could be born earlier than we originally thought.
On October 15, Kensington Palace announced Prince Harry, 34, and Meghan Markle, 37, would be expecting their first child in Spring. But when speaking to some royal fans at a Christmas church service at Sandringham, Meghan hinted she could be expecting the child a little earlier. The American-born Duchess of Sussex greeted crowds with other royals after leaving St Mary Magdalene Church on Christmas Day.
One royal fan, Karen Anvil, says she spoke to Meghan about her upcoming new arrival.
Ms Anvil told E! News: “She said, ‘We are excited. We’re nearly there.’
“I said, ‘Enjoy every moment, being a mother is a wonderful thing.’”
The amateur photographer added: “You know what? She was so genuine.

“She was doing her duty as a royal with the crowds, shaking hands, etc.
“But when I asked her about the baby, she changed totally.
“She was glowing and instinctively went for her stomach. It was lovely.”
Meghan’s comment that “we’re nearly there” has led many to think that she is expecting her baby a little earlier than previously predicted.

Bookies say March is the favourite month at the moment, with Ladbrokes having the odds on the baby arriving in March at 4/5, while it is evens for April.
The suggestion of a March arrival appears to be backed up by another comment from the Duchess that she made visiting a nursing home on December 18.
Meghan was heard saying to a resident she felt “very good” and “very pregnant” as she cradled her tummy in video footage captures by People magazine.
Speculation is also high over what the newly-weds will name their first child.

According to Ladbrokes Diana is the most popular pick.
But bookmaker Coral have Victoria as the current favourite royal baby name, leading with odds of 8-1.
The male names that top the list are Albert at 10-1 for Ladbrokes, and for Coral, Philip leads with the same odds.
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Victoria may be favourite in the betting but it’s Diana who is running away with things in the popularity charts for Harry and Meghan’s first born.”
