Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles got everyone’s attention Monday when they dropped news that they are planning a trip to Germany on May 7, hinting that Meghan Markle will deliver before that date.

The Duke and Duchess of Cornwall announced plans to go on a three-day trip next month to the country, with the first stop being in Berlin and others in Leipzig and Munich, per People magazine. (RELATED: Celebrate Prince William’s Birthday With Unforgettable Shots Of Kate Middleton [SLIDESHOW])

Since the Duchess and Duke of Sussex have only announced that their first child is due sometime in the spring of 2019, royal baby watchers have tried to piece together that the former “Suits” actress will deliver sometime in April early May. During a reception at Buckingham Palace, Markle recently shared that it was going to happen soon.

When asked if she was tired of people asking about the baby, the newest member of the royal family said not at all: “No, it’s actually very sweet. It’s a very sweet, nurturing thing to ask. We’re nearly there!”

This news from Prince Charles, who has already talked about how excited he is for this child’s arrival, has many concluding that they wouldn’t leave on the trip until they have met the newest member of the royal family.

Which means Markle and Prince Harry’s child will arrive sometime between today and before the duke’s trip to Germany.

This all comes following recent reports that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will break tradition and not be announcing that their baby has arrived until the family privately has had time to celebrate the child’s birth.

“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are very grateful for the goodwill they have received from people throughout the United Kingdom and around the world as they prepare to welcome their baby,” a statement released from Kensington Palace read.

“Their Royal Highnesses have taken a personal decision to keep the plans around the arrival of their baby private,” it added. “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.”

As previously reported, this is quite a change from the way Kate Middleton and Prince William handled the birth of their three children, as the world knew each time of each birth. On top of that, the Duchess of Cambridge always posed for pictures on the steps of the Lindo Wing at St. Mary’s Hospital with the newest member of the royal family.
