Fans think this Instagram post proves that Meghan Markle has given birth
Fans think this Instagram post proves that Meghan Markle has given birth.
It's a tenuous link.
However, that hasn't stopped people speculating that a post from the Sussex Royal official Instagram account means Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have welcomed their first child.
Earlier this week, an Instagram post thanking people for charitable donations in lieu of baby gifts received a major reaction on social media.
An excerpt from the post read:
"Whether a $5 donation, £1000 contribution, offering to volunteer, or spreading the word – you’ve played your part. And on behalf of The Duke and Duchess (and Baby Sussex), we thank you so much".
The mention of Baby Sussex caused many to speculate that the royal baby has already arrived and they think that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are keeping the news private for now.

Just one week ago, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex asked that you kindly consider supporting various organisations around the world in lieu of sending gifts for the upcoming arrival of their first born. Not only did many of you lend your support, you took action. Their Royal Highnesses wanted you to know the impact of your support – the direct effect your donation, energy, and action made! YOU chose to be part of the collective good, and you have made a real difference. Whether a $5 donation, £1000 contribution, offering to volunteer, or spreading the word – you’ve played your part. And on behalf of The Duke and Duchess (and Baby Sussex), we thank you so much. YOUR IMPACT: @thelunchboxfund will now be able to provide a minimum of 100,000 additional hot nutritionally fortified meals to children in dire need across South Africa @littlevillagehq received donations from all over the world (from UAE to Hong Kong and the US), they’ve increased their monthly donors, had a surge in volunteer applications, and re-energized their hard working team of 200+ staff and volunteers @wellchild can now provide 300+ additional hours of specialist care by a Well Child Nurse for a child with serious health needs, allowing families to stay together at home vs in hospital @Baby2Baby have received over 5,000 products to disperse to children in need, including cribs, books, backpacks, diapers and have received monetary donations from around the globe - from Guadalajara to Italy. You made this happen. Thank you.
As we said, this is putting two and two together and getting ten.
Like any new parents, they deserve to have some privacy at such an important time but many have argued that the royal family are in the public eye and so they are not afforded this luxury.
A couple of weeks ago, the couple released a statement via Buckingham Palace explaining that they have planned to keep the birth private and will release the news in due course.
The official statement was as follows:
"Their Royal Highnesses have taken a personal decision to keep the plans around the arrival of their baby private.
"The Duke and Duchess look forward to sharing the exciting news with everyone once they have had an opportunity to celebrate privately as a new family."
