Heartbreaking reason William may not be there for the birth of Baby Sussex.


The Duke of Cambridge, William might miss the birth of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s first baby. And, the reason behind missing it, is simply heartbreaking.

Meghan Markle is now in her last few days of pregnancy. She is expected to give birth to her baby in a matter of 4 weeks, at most. 

The exact due date of the baby is not known. However, Kensington Palace did reveal it was going to come into the world sometime this spring. Royal fans are speculating whether baby Sussex will arrive in April or early May. However, many people speculate that the baby will arrive in April. 

But, this might be a problem for Prince William.

Those dates may coincide with Prince William’s planned trip to New Zealand next month. There, he will meet bereaved families of the victims of the Christchurch massacre. The future King will visit those affected by the heinous terrorist attack to pay his respects.

He will be travelling to the Commonwealth country on request of Her Majesty in a show of support from the British royal family after the country’s Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern asked for a visit. 

A Palace statement said:-

“The visit will be another sign that this nation will always stand with those affected by the terror attacks. The Duke of Cambridge will visit New Zealand on behalf of The Queen to honour the victims of the Christchurch mosques terrorist attack. The visit in late April will be made at the request of the Prime Minister of New Zealand”.

The Duke of Cambridge also went to Christchurch after catastrophic earthquakes hit the city.

Speaking at a moving memorial service held in a park close to the worst-hit parts of the city, the Duke of Cambridge, delivered a message of support from Her Majesty. He said:-

“My grandmother once said that grief is the price we pay for love. Here today, we love and we grieve. We honour the lives and memories of all those who died in this devastating earthquake. Put simply, you are an inspiration to all people”.
