A BBC journalist took to Twitter to hint that some exciting news could be shortly announced. However, the palace is emphatically denying that the sighting was connected to Meghan Markle.


BABY Sussex is due any moment now. Fans are constantly on the lookout for any hints that Meghan Markle has gone into labor.

Early today, a BBC journalist tweeted that a private ambulance with a police escort had been spotted driving through Windsor. The news sent royal fans into a frenzy.


However, the sighting is apparently a false alarm. A  palace representative firmly denied that the sighting was connected with the Duchess of Sussex.

It’s not the first ambulance sighting near Frogmore Cottage has proved to be unconnected to the duchess. Last week another sighting turned out to be a false alarm as well.


Last week an NHS South Central Ambulance Service was spotted in a car park near the back entrance of Frogmore. However, it was revealed the ambulance was there to pick up some food.

A spokesperson said it had parked up in a farm shop so paramedics could grab lunch for students working in the local area.  The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have kept fans guessing over the birth of their baby.


Meghan, 37, is not planning to pose on the hospital steps with the newborn. They posted a statement on April 11explaining they had "taken a personal decision to keep the plans around the arrival of their baby private".

The secretiveness around the birth of Baby Sussex has fans and press eager for news. The hype has resulted in the need for stricter security for the couple.


The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were forced to implement new security measures after a near-fatal incident caused by an eager fan trying to snap a pic of the pair. The fan used a drone to fly over to Frogmore cottage.

Unfortunately, a miscalculation by the fan resulted in the drone flying too high and into the path of a passenger jet. The drone went well above the legal altitude and strayed into one of the busiest paths for planes coming and going from Heathrow Airport.

Shortly after the incident, bright yellow signs prohibiting drones around Frogmore Cottage were put up. Police also enforced new safety measures amid the preparations for the arrival of Harry and Meghan's baby.
