Though the palace has yet to confirm, this is big news, considering the royal family hasn’t revealed much about her pregnancy. You know, protocol.
Kensington Palace announced that Prince Harry and Markle were expecting their first child back in October 2018, just five months after the royal wedding. “Their Royal Highnesses have appreciated all of the support they have received from people around the world since their wedding in May  and are delighted to be able to share this happy news with the public,” a statement read at the time of the announcement.
As for whether we can expect a little prince or princess, it looks like we will just have to wait and see. In addition to revealing that she’s due in late April, Markle also responded to a young fan who asked about the baby’s gender. “We don’t know whether it’s a boy or girl, we are keeping it as a surprise,” she said. So sweet!
