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.


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."
