Buckingham Palace did their best Thursday to shut down speculation that Meghan Markle has already given birth to her first child with Prince Harry.

“The baby hasn’t been born yet,” a representative from the royal household confirmed to E! News as the world waits for news of the newest member of the royal families’ birth. (RELATED: Duchess Meghan Markle Reportedly Plans To Raise Royal Baby Gender Neutral)

It all comes following reports Wednesday that began surfacing after a British radio D.J. speculated that he might know something and claimed that the expectant Duchess of Sussex had already given birth to her and the duke’s first child and they were just keeping it a secret.

“I think I know something,” D.J. Chris Evans shared, as reported by Vanity Fair. “There might be a new royal baby already.”

“Well, there’s more than a hint, what more of a hint do you want, other than the fact that I think there might be a new royal baby already,” he added, when pressed. “I’m just saying, I’m just putting it out there, right?”

Evans continued, “The Queen has been to see Meghan and Harry . . . at their place, right? Now, she doesn’t do that. That’s all I’m saying.”

The rumors were also fueled by reports of Prince Harry’s upcoming official schedule which had him leaving for the Netherlands next week, traveling there Wednesday, May 8th and Thursday, May 9th.

Given this news, it is almost certain that Markle will deliver her child within the next few days. As previously reported, Kensington Palace already announced that news of the birth will be a private matter until the duke and duchess have had time to celebrate the birth.

All royal baby watchers know is that the child’s due date was described as sometime in spring 2019 and have been eagerly waiting for signs of the baby’s birth.
