Our wait is finally coming to an end. It seems that the arrival of Baby Sussex is imminent and because of that Harry’s trip to Netherlands next week will be cut short. The initial plan for the visit was to be a two day thing, on May 8th and 9th, with Prince Harry travelling to The Hague to launch the one year countdown to the Invictus Games in 2020.
“Due to the logistical planning for the travelling press to cover visits and engagements by The Royal Family, we have taken the decision to postpone The Duke of Sussex’s scheduled visit to Amsterdam on Wednesday 8 May 2019,” a statement read.
“The Duke is currently scheduled to travel to The Hague on Thursday 9 May for the launch of the Invictus Games The Hague 2020 as planned.”
The news of the change went public just as the world is eagerly anticipating the announcement that Meghan has given birth, who is due any moment now. But if the Duchess gives birth soon, the whole engagement will be no doubt reviewed.
Last week, the royal couple went on social media and their official Instagram account to wish their niece, Prince Charlotte, a happy birthday.
“Happy Birthday Charlotte! Lots of love, H and M xo,” they wrote on Instagram. They finished the caption with a birthday cake and red balloon emoji, and the must have xo.
Later this month, we got the news that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle decided to keep the plans of the birth private. However they assured that they will inform the media when the Duchess goes into labor.
A statement from the Palace specified back in April that: “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are very grateful for the goodwill they have received from people throughout the United Kingdom and around the world as they prepare to welcome their baby.
“Their Royal Highnesses have taken a personal decision to keep the plans around the arrival of their baby private. The Duke and Duchess look forward to sharing the exciting news with everyone once they have had an opportunity to celebrate privately as a new family.”
