#PrinceHarry & #MeghanMarkle: It's A Boy! Royal Baby Here Already

Has The Queen already visited her new great grand daughter?

 

Has The Queen already visited her new great grand daughter?

As a British ex-pat I am going to go all out here and place my bet, faith, journalistic research and good ole British sources and wager that HRH Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle have already welcomed a beautiful son. There it is, I said it.

And here is why.

Firstly, let us look at the dates leading up to this much anticipated arrival.

Markle's engagement to Prince Harry was announced on November 27, 2017, by Clarence House and Kensington Palace. Markle announced that she would retire from acting, and began the process of becoming a British citizen.

In preparation for the wedding, the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, baptized Markle and confirmed her into the Church of England on March 6, 2018.The private ceremony, performed with water from the River Jordan, took place in the Chapel Royal at St James's Palace.

The marriage ceremony was held on May 19 at St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle.

Royal watchers and worldwide fans are holding bated breath for the big official announcement, which is traditionally posted on the palace gates of Buckingham Palace and are speculating what the baby will be named.

Some royal watchers think Diana would be the perfect name in honor of Harry's beloved mother, in my humble opinion, I strongly think that the Queen would never ever allow this, maybe Diana will be one of the baby's names because lets face it, traditionally the baby will have at least four names.

Rumors are also abound that the royal couple would name their daughter Allegra, which allegedly Princess Diana had revealed she would have chosen this name had she given birth to a daughter.

Back to the timeline and Royal movement. Harry and Megan have had a few royal visitors recently at their new home. On Sunday Queen Elizabeth paid a visit to the couple to see the newly renovated Frogmore Cottage which was given to the couple by the monarch. At 93 years young, the Queen is very particular about her tiring schedule and would have scheduled taken the time to visit their home after the baby was born, I very much doubt she would visit before the due date only to come back a few days later. It is a 25 mile trek from London.

She is far too busy for that.

The Queen isn't the only member of the royal family to drop by recently. Meghan and Harry recently hosted Kate Middleton and Prince William, who visited Frogmore Cottage for the first time since the move following Easter church services at St. George's Chapel in Windsor Castle.

Meghan's mother, Doria Ragland, also arrived from her home in Los Angeles before the Easter holiday, I am convinced she was here for the birth or to meet her new grand daughter. This all adds to me that a new royal is amongst us.

A very telling statement in my opinion from Buckingham Palace explained that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex "look forward to sharing the exciting news with everyone once they have had an opportunity to celebrate privately as a new family".

In conclusion, I summarized they have indeed been celebrating their new daughter with close family members for a couple of weeks and will make an official statement very soon.

I just wanted to make it first.
