We recently discussed the report that Meghan Markle is expecting a boy and a girl — fraternal twins — with Prince Harry.
There is also a report that Kate Middleton is already pregnant with her fourth royal baby.
A new report confirms them both … and says that Kate and Meghan may end up giving birth on the same day
A new InTouch cover gleefully announces this story to the world.
“They’re both pregnant!” the cover proclaims.
The cover goes on to proclaim that both Kate and Meghan are “due the same day!”
That would be a real gamechanger, though, as we all know, due dates are more of an educated guess.
“A girl for Kate,” the headline continues. “And twins for Meghan!”
InTouch’s report continues with further details.
“Meghan,” they explain. “Conceived just a few weeks after Kate.”
And apparently this has forged a closer knit between the two duchesses.
“Kate and Meghan bonded over the men they married,” they reveal. “Now they’re bonding over being pregnant together.”
It wasn’t so long ago that the two were rumored to be royally feuding, but this report says that “That’s all water under the bridge now.”
InTouch offers a few more details.
“Meghan,” they say. “Wants to give birth in the U.S.”
Some people are more comfortable giving birth at home. Especially when that means that their child will also be an American citizen.
The repot says that, because Meghan’s “due date is around the same time as Kate’s,” there’s a very real possibility that “they could give birth the same day!”
“While the pregnancies are the subject of plenty of palace buzz,” the report confides. “The duchesses have only shared their news with a small group of friends and family.”
That all sounds so exciting.
But, as Gossip Cop points out, there are some apparent holes in the story.
First of all, InTouch says that the “palace confirms.” Kensington Palace has done no such thing, and reportedly said as much to Gossip Cop.
Second of all, do they have the same due date or are their due dates merely close to each other?
We know that due dates can sometimes be given as a range, but … it sounds like the story isn’t entirely straight.
Finally, and perhaps most importantly, Meghan and Harry were recently spotted on a lunch date in Dublin.
The two shared some beer with lunch. That might be standard in the British Isles, but it’s definitely not something that anyone should do when pregnant.
The world has just seen photos of Prince Louis’s Christening. Kate’s youngest looks so precious and cute — and Kate herself looks so radiant — that it’s easy to understand why people are eager for another royal baby.
But there is no indication that Kate or Meghan are pregnant.
Remember, Kate has extremely bad morning sickness — which is how we were able to predict her pregnancy last year a couple of weeks before it was announced.
And Meghan, as we mentioned, was washing down her lunch with Guiness.
Reports like these are always tempting because they can be exciting, but let’s keep a cool head and wait for news that we can verify.
We just got the latest royal baby a couple of months ago. We can be patient.
