Jenna Bush Has Theory on Whether Meghan Markle Has Already Given Birth

The royal baby watch is officially on! Jenna Bush opened up on "Today" with Meredith Vieira about her predictions and theory around the royal baby.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry‘s first child is set to arrive any day. Buckingham Palace just announced that the Duke of Sussex will visit the Netherlands on Wednesday, May 8 and Thursday, May 9.

The announcement sparked even more speculation amongst fans. The dates imply that that the royal couple will welcome Baby Sussex within the next few days.

Amid the speculation, Jenna Bush told Meredith Vieira during "The Today Show" that she thinks the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have already welcomed their royal baby. She believes they are just keeping it under wraps.

When Meredith questioned her theory, she replied that the dates of the Prince's engagements hint strongly that the baby is already here. She jokingly added, "I don't think that Palace would lie." 

She is not the only one suspecting the baby has already arrived. Royal fans suspected the newest member of the family would arrive before the second week of May.

Especially since Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall had previously announced that they will visit Germany on May 7 for a three-day tour. Since Charles and Camilla are expected to be close when the baby is born, it was assumed that Baby Sussex would be born before their departure.

Today is #earthday - an opportunity to learn about, celebrate and continue to safeguard our planet, our home. The above, Their Royal Highnesses in Rotorua, New Zealand. Of the 170 different species originally planted in the early 1900’s, only a handful of species, including these majestic Redwoods, remain today. Next, we invite you to scroll through a series of 8 photos taken by The Duke of Sussex©️DOS sharing his environmental POV including: Africa’s Unicorn, the rhino. These magnificent animals have survived ice ages and giant crocodiles, amongst other things! They have adapted to earth’s changing climate continually for over 30 million years. Yet here we are in 2019 where their biggest threat is us. A critical ecosystem, Botswana’s Okavango Delta sustains millions of people and an abundance of wildlife. Huge bush fires, predominantly started by humans, are altering the entire river system; the ash kills the fish as the flood comes in and the trees that don’t burn become next year’s kindling. Desert lions are critically endangered due partly to human wildlife conflict, habitat encroachment and climate change. 96% of mammals on our 🌍 are either livestock or humans, meaning only 4% remaining are wild animals. Orca and Humpback whale populations are recovering in Norway thanks to the protection of their fisheries. Proof that fishing sustainably can benefit us all. Roughly 3/4 of Guyana is forested, its forests are highly diverse with 1,263 known species of wildlife and 6,409 species of plants. Many countries continue to try and deforest there for the global demand for timber. We all now know the damage plastics are causing to our oceans. Micro plastics are also ending up in our food source, creating not just environmental problems for our planet but medical problems for ourselves too. When a fenced area passes its carrying capacity for elephants, they start to encroach into farmland causing havoc for communities. Here @AfricanParksNetwork relocated 500 Elephants to another park within Malawi to reduce the pressure on human wildlife conflict and create more dispersed tourism. Every one of us can make a difference, not just today but every day. #earthday

Harry's trip will include an official engagement in Amsterdam and then The Hague. He is set to officially launch the one-year countdown to the 2020 Invictus Games which will be held there.

Harry visiting another Invictus Games event after the baby is born very fitting.  Especially since they had announced their exciting baby news just before their October tour of Australia, Tonga, Fiji and New Zealand for the trip was the 2018 Invictus Games in Sydney.

They had also made their couple debut a year before that at the 2017 Invictus Games in Toronto. Fan speculation already increased after the due dates in late April  Meghan had previously disclosed passed without news.

The mounting speculation, however, has also led to a number of security concerns. The fear of paparazzi and overly eager fans led to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex implementing new security measures to ensure their privacy.

Bright yellow signs were even placed around the outskirts of their home. The signs read, "police flight safety notice: drones prohibited in this area."
