Meghan Markle Drops Major Due Date Hint

by at .

We interrupt our near-daily update about Meghan Markle and her frosty relationship with Kate Middleton to bring you an update about Meghan Markle and her miraculous relationship with someone else...

Meghan Markle and Supporters

... her unborn child!

On Tuesday, the Duchess of Sussex made her way through a throng of supporters on her way to church.

She was accompanied on this important occasion by her husband, Prince Harry, and also by her rumored rivals, Prince William and the aforementioned Middleton.

(By now, you must have read all about the alleged feud between Middleton and Markle, right?)

While in Sandringham for the holiday, Markle was greeted by many fans, most of whom expressed well wishes for Meghan over her pregnancy, which she confirmed in October.

"She said, 'We are excited. We're nearly there,'" one of these citizens, Karen Anvil, told E! News. "I said, 'Enjoy every moment, being a mother is a wonderful thing.'"

Hmmm... nearly there, huh?

We had heard that Markle's due date was May 2.

This was notable because it also happens to be Princess Charlotte's birthday, although it's also notable that no one from Kensington Palace has verified this date.

We may be reading too much into Markle's above reply, but being nearly there seems to imply that Meghan is due long before May, doesn't it?

Megs and Kates

As for chatter that Markle is all pretentious and self-centered and stuck up and a general pill to be around?

This one person disagrees with that assessment at least.

"You know what? She was so genuine. She was doing her duty as a royal with the crowds, shaking hands, etc.," Anvil said, adding:

"But when I asked her about the baby, she changed totally. She was glowing and instinctively went for her stomach. It was lovely."

For once, however, few eyes were on Markle's stomach.

Instead, they were trained on her interactions with Middleton, considering the constant talk over how these two simply don't get along.

Delighted Duchesses

Anvil says she no signs of tension, though.

She told E! that Meghan and Kate seemed to get along just fine during their very public outing.

During her annual Christmas address, meanwhile, Queen Elizabeth made a rare mention of her personal life, giving the polarizing Duchess a shout-out in the process.

"It’s been a busy year for my family, with two weddings and two babies and another child expected soon," she told the world.

What is she talking about here?

Well... Markle and Harry exchanged vows in May.

Then, nearly five months later, Princess Eugenie married businessman Jack Brooksbank.

Elsewhere, William and Kate, welcomed their third child, Prince Louis, in April -- and Elizabeth’s granddaughter, Zara Tindall, welcomed her second daughter in June with husband Mike.
