Meghan Markle Just Announced She's Having a Boy ... Right??

by at .  Updated at .

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are having a baby.

You probably already knew this.

But the public does NOT yet know whether the Royals are expecting a boy or a girl.

This information was not included in the official statement by Kensington Palace that confirmed the major news.

However, a handful of astute (and/or possibly misguided) Internet users think they have cracked the gender code. They think Markle revealed the sex of her impending child via the color of the dress she wore for a state dinner in Fiji.

No, really. They think this.

Scroll down to see the gown in question, along with these excited responses to it...

1. Wearing Blue

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?!?
Internet users really are convinced that Markle is wearing this color dress as a way to tell the world the gender of her impending child.

3. Boom! It's a Boy!

Boom! It's a Boy!
Why else would Markle wear blue, right?!?

4. She's Carrying a Boy!

She's Carrying a Boy!
That's it. Twitter is convinced.

5. Yes. We All Know This...

Yes. We All Know This...
... but we're here to blindly guess the gender, okay?!?

6. Here's the Thing, Though:

Here's the Thing, Though:
Markle and her famous husband were attendinga reception and State Dinner hosted by Jioji Konrote, the President of Fiji. This marked the latest stop on the couple's tour of the Commonwealth -- and it would have been a very odd time to announce a gender in such passive fashion.

7. And Here's the Other Thing:

And Here's the Other Thing:
The color choice was likely a tribute to Fiji because the specific hue of her dress is known as "Fijian Blue," mainly as an ode to that nation's gorgeous water.

During a stop in Australia as part of this tour, a fan yelled to the Duke: "I hope it's a girl!" Harry replied, "So do I!" while walking away.

What About the Baby's Name?
This is also TBD. But Markle has said the following so far: “We’ve been given a long list of names from everyone. We’re going to sit down and have a look at them."

10. And a Due Date?

And a Due Date?
Sorry, but this hasn't been announced yet, either. We do have it on strong authority, however, that Markle is due in early May; specifically, on May 2.

The Announcement, Revisited
This is what the Palace told the world just several days ago: "Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Sussex is expecting a baby in the Spring of 2019. Their Royal Highnesses have appreciated all of the support they have received from people around the world since their wedding in May and are delighted to be able to share this happy news with the public."

12. Everyone is Psyched!

Everyone is Psyched!
Prince William and Kate Middleton have said they are "delighted" over this news, while even Thomas Markle sounds happy. He tells The Daily Mail: "I was filled with love, joy and happiness for both my beautiful daughter and my son-in-law. A new baby is a blessing and I look forward to seeing a little Meghan or a little Harry."

13. When Will We Learn the Gender for Real?

When Will We Learn the Gender for Real?
Most women need to wait until their 20-week ultrasound to be told the gender. HOWEVER, Markle is considered a "geriatric" mother at this point in her life. (By the medical community, not by us.)

14. So What?

So What?
This means she has already undergone NIPT (noninvasive prenatal testing), which is a blood test used to screen for Down syndrome and a few other chromosomal conditions. You can find out your baby's sex when you have this test.

15. Did She Have the Test? Did She Learn the Gender?

Did She Have the Test? Did She Learn the Gender?
We don't know. We have a call in to find out and we'll let you know as soon as we do!
