Prince William makes surprising revelation about Meghan and Harry’s royal baby

Prince William has been away from the UK on a royal visit to New Zealand, where he made a very surprising revelation about his niece or nephew…

The dad-of-three went on a royal visit to New Zealand last week, which actually made him miss his son Prince Louis’ first birthday.

It’s also been speculated that the trip could make him miss the birth of his new nephew or niece, as Meghan was said to be due in late April.

During the trip, Prince William was asked if he had any updated on the arrival of the new royal baby, but his response was very surprising.

When someone asked him ‘Any signs of the royal baby?’, he revealed he would probably know after the reporters and royal fans.

‘I haven’t got my phone on me. I have no idea! You guys will find out before I do at this rate!’, he said jokingly.

Of course it’s very likely he will be one of the first people to know, as it’s his brother’s first child.

Meghan and Harry recently revealed they decided to keep the birth private and only announce the news once they’ve had a chance to celebrate as a family, which probably includes William, Kate and their three little ones.
