Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, reportedly revealed her due date to a crowd of well-wishers at an engagement today, so let the countdown officially begin.

In October 2018 Kensington Palace announced that Meghan Markle is pregnant and due in the spring. The Duchess of Sussex reportedly confirmed this herself to well-wishers at an engagement today (January 14) in Birkenhead, England, according to several royals reporters on site. Not only that, she apparently offered some insight about when specifically her royal baby is coming next season.

"For those who want to know about these things: Meghan told one lady in the crowd that she is six months pregnant and another woman that her due date is around April," Chris Ship, the royal editor for ITV News, tweeted on Monday.

Emily Nash, the the royal editor for Hello!, corroborated this, tweeting, "Meghan has told well-wishers in Birkenhead that she is six months pregnant, due end of April/beginning of May! Lots of baby chat today!"

It's been a whirlwind few months for Markle and Prince Harry. Their baby announcement came at the beginning of their royal tour of Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, and Tonga. This took them right into the holiday season, during which they reportedly spent some quality time with the queen. Their engagement in Birkenhead is the couple's first official business of 2019.

Markle hasn't said much about her pregnancy to the public, as is royal protocol. She did, however, joke last month that she was "looking very pregnant" at an event. We love a relatable duchess!

"Their royal highnesses have appreciated all of the support they have received from people around the world since their wedding in May [2018] and are delighted to be able to share this happy news with the public," Kensington Palace wrote at the time of Markle's pregnancy announcement in October. Let the countdown to the royal baby begin!
