Ever since Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan announced that they were expecting their first baby this spring, speculation about the royal baby has been rife. Will it be a boy or a girl? Will Meghan be having twins? And where will baby Sussex live? It's not long until Harry and Meghan's first born arrives now and so we thought we should put an end to all the rumours...

Prince Harry (34) and Duchess Meghan's (37) baby will be arriving very soon. Meghan is already on maternity leave and all the royals are on high alert to welcome the newest member of the family. 

Royal baby fever has now officially hit and with it countless myths about the baby Sussex. Here are some rumours you definitely shouldn't believe...

Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry have announced the sex of their baby

We know that Harry and Meghan's firstborn will be arriving some time at the end of April, but we don't know whether they are having a boy or a girl. 

The bets are on though! With a girl being the nation's firm favourite. Only time will tell...

Duchess Meghan is having twins

The internet was swamped with rumours that Meghan would be having twins come spring, but it looks like she is only carrying one baby. Kensington Palace's official statement read:

"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", with no mention of two babies. 

Harry and Meghan will be raising with a fluid approach to gender

An article in the February Vanity Fair magazine caused quite a stir, when it stated that the Sussexes would be raising their baby with a fluid approach to gender. 

Kensington Palace has categorically denied that this will be the case.

Prince William and Duchess Kate will be the baby's godparents

Meghan and Harry's baby will not only have a set of very proud parents, but will also have a set of godparents. Even though Prince William (36) is Harry's brother, he will not be Harry's firstborn's godfather. It is traditional for close friends of the royals to become godparents. 

As Meghan was a successful actress before marrying Harry, the baby's godparents could well be A-listers, such as Meghan's close friend tennis pro Serena Williams (37).

The Sussexes baby will be a prince or princess 

While Harry and Meghan are a duke and duchess, their child will not have a royal title. The Sunday Times reported that they want their child to have as normal a life as possible and so want him or her not to have a title.

Traditionally, a royal's firstborn inherits his or her father's title. The following children are then given the title of lord or lady.

Meghan and Harry's baby will grown up in Kensington Palace

As Meghan and Harry will be living in Frogmore Cottage in Windsor and not in Kensington Palace it follows that their baby will be living in Windsor, too. Kensington Palace and Frogmore Cottage are a half and hour's journey apart by car.
