Meghan Markle may be holding the birth of her baby to make sure that her firstborn won’t arrive on Queen Elizabeth II’s birthday, according to some netizens.

Royal fans think that the Duchess of Sussex wants to show her respect for Her Majesty by making sure that her special day will be entirely hers. Prior to Easter Sunday, bookies predicted that Markle’s baby will be born on April 21 and will share the Queen’s birthday.

But by the looks of it, Markle and Prince Harry’s baby was not born on the said date. The Duke of Sussex attended an Easter church service with the other members of the royal family and royal fans are convinced that Prince Harry would’ve skipped the gathering if his wife gave birth on the same day.

On Twitter, several royal fans shared their thoughts about Markle not giving birth on the Queen’s birthday.

“Is it true Meghan is holding the baby because the Queen’s birthday is coming soon???” one person tweeted.

“So my theory is that Meghan’s secret baby day is all a ploy to not clash with the Queen’s birthday. Imagine Baby Sussex was born on the same day as Queenie? Imagine stealing her thunder? Never be tolerated!” another person tweeted.

Another fan said that it would be nice for Markle’s firstborn to share a birthday with Her Majesty for the simple reason that the Duchess of Sussex shares the same birthday with the Queen Mother. The monarch’s mom was born on Aug. 4, 1900, while Markle was born on Aug. 4, 1981.

Meanwhile, there has been no indication that the Queen would be unhappy to share a birthday with Markle and Prince Harry’s child. This is because Markle is believed to have forged a close relationship with Her Majesty throughout the past couple of months.

On her birthday, Markle and Prince Harry also paid tribute to the Queen by posting a series of photos with her via their official Instagram account.
