Meghan Markle and Prince Harry to welcome first child soon. Royal baby myths busted
Ever since the news broke out that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were expecting their first child, it has given birth to various myths. We are going to break most of them for you.
1. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been dropping hints about the gender of their first child.
The onlookers are trying to decode if there is a hidden meaning behind the colours that a heavily pregnant Meghan Markle is wearing. If it is any kind of clue about the sex of baby Sussex?
According to a report by an entertainment magazine, during an outing in Birkenhead in January, a 9-year-old, Kitty Dudley asked Meghan, if she was having a boy or a girl. To which Meghan replied, "We don't know whether it's a boy or a girl, we are keeping it as a surprise."
2. Baby Sussex will be raised in a gender-neutral environment.
For the first time, Kensington Palace released a statement denying any such reports that the couple will avoid gender stereotypes.
3. Duchess of Sussex is expecting twins.
This myth has people going crazy and a lot of bets were coming in with enormous amounts of money. The online betting portal, Oddmakers paddy Power stopped taking bets because the number of bets coming in, was huge. In a statement they released, they said, "Since the day began, the stream of bets has led us to believe that perhaps the punters or an insider source knows something more than we do."
However, neither the Duke nor the Duchess have ever given a hint about being pregnant with more that one kid.
4. Baby Sussex's childhood will be spent in Kensington Palace.
The royal couple has been staying in Nottingham Cottage which is a 2 bedroom cottage in Kensington Palace. However, the couple is all set to move out to Windsor Castle's Frogmore Cottage. This will give them time to settle in before the baby comes.
5. Prince William and wife Kate Middleton will be godparents to baby Sussex.
According to royal tradition, uncles and aunts cannot be godparents as they already have important roles to play in the child's life. Therefore Meghan might pick one of her closest friends like Priyanka Chopra or Serena Williams to be the godmother of baby Sussex.
Prince Harry to is not godfather to any of Prince William and Kate Middleton's children.
The royal baby is expected to be delivered in Spring of 2019.
