Prince William Has ‘No Idea’ about Meghan Markle’s Due Date
Prince William is as out of the loop as the rest of the world when it comes to information about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s baby due date.
The Duke of Cambridge, 36, visited Christchurch, New Zealand, on Saturday, April 27. There he greeted and shook hands with fans gathered on the streets to see him.
As he walked down the line, a bold woman asked “Any signs of the royal baby?”
With no hesitation, the prince smiled and patted his suit, jokingly saying: “I haven’t got my phone on me. I have no idea! You guys will find out before I do at this rate!” as seen in a video shared by New Zealand's Woman's Weekly.
The father of three also made a joke about his parenting experience when asked if he had jet lag. “Jet lag? What jet lag? I’ve got three children now. Jet lag doesn’t happen,” he stated.

Today, The Duke of Sussex, Patron of The London Marathon Charitable Trust, attended the 2019 @LondonMarathon where he cheered on runners, thanked volunteers for their selfless support, and congratulated the winners. The Duke has been Patron of the Trust since 2012 because he believes that mental fitness is absolutely crucial to our wellbeing. These runners not only set a goal for themselves personally and emotionally, but the majority of runners choose to raise money for charity. It’s the perfect fusion of doing something good for yourself while doing good for others. The joyful atmosphere created by locals, tourists, families and friends speaks to the spirit of what community is all about - supporting one another, even complete strangers. The @LondonMarathon is the biggest one-day fundraising event on the planet. This year’s Marathon will see the total raised for charity surpass a record-breaking £1 billion. So for every runner, volunteer, sponsor and member of the public that has played a part in making today a success - thanks a billion! Photo credit: PA
According to a Kensington Palace’s spokesperson, Harry had always planned to attend the event. But since his wife’s due date is so close now, his appearance was not announced in advance in case he was not able to attend.
Fans and members of the media have been on constant royal-baby-alert for the past few days.
Back in January, Meghan reportedly told a few fans that her due date was on April.
However, earlier this month the Duchess and Duke of Sussex revealed through a statement shared by Kensington Palace, that it was their personal decision to keep the plans around the arrival of their baby private.
They also revealed they would share the news of the baby’s arrival once they have had an opportunity to celebrate privately as a new family.
As a preventive measure, it was reported that yellow signs prohibiting drones popped up around Frogmore Cottage. The new security measure aims to limit paparazzi access to the property and also ban drones in the area.
Markle is said to be following the Queen’s steps and, instead of giving birth at a hospital, she would go through a natural birth at home. The Duchess allegedly ruled out using the private Lindo Wing at St Mary's Hospital, Paddington, because it felt too much like a “goldfish bowl.”
