Could this be the major clue that Meghan Markle could give birth any day now? It certainly seems that way after the Duchess's makeup artist sparked intense speculation when he posted an 'innocent' Instagram message to his followers about his upcoming travel plans. Daniel Martin, a long time friend of Meghan's, was spotted in London earlier this month before visiting Prince Harry and Meghan at their residence in Windsor.
This prompted many to assume the New York-based makeup artist would be doing Meghan's makeup after the royal baby is born. Well, Martin has now shared a post about being back home in New York for his new makeup show on May 6, which excited fans have taken to mean the mum-to-be would have given birth by then. He wrote: "I'm very excited to share that I'll be making my first ever main stage appearance @themakeupshow on Sunday, May 5th from 10am-11:30 am. I'll be sharing my journey, doing makeup, tips and tricks and spilling the tea on some of my favourite products in my kit!"
Many are already convinced she will give birth this weekend so this has only further sent the rumour mill into overdrive. Bookies Ladbrokes have already seen a flurry of bets in the last few days after slashing odds to 3/1 of Harry and Meghan's firstborn making an appearance towards the end of this week. And if it does happen, fans could even be in for a double royal celebration if the tot arrives on Sunday as it is the Queen 's 93rd birthday.
Jessica Bridge, a spokesperson for the company, said: "Royal fans would love a double celebration over the Easter weekend with Her Majesty's birthday on Sunday, and potentially Baby Sussex arriving as well. Punters are still convinced the Duke and Duchess will be welcoming a little girl into the world."
Yesterday, the couple thanked fans for donating to their favourite charitable causes as part of an online baby shower. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex wrote online: "Just one week ago, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex asked that you kindly consider supporting various organisations around the world in lieu of sending gifts for the upcoming arrival of their first born. Not only did many of you lend your support, you took action. Their royal highnesses wanted you to know the impact of your support – the direct effect your donation, energy, and action made! YOU chose to be part of the collective good, and you have a made a real difference. Whether a $5 donation, £1000 contribution, offering to volunteer or spreading the word – you’ve played your part."
