Wild speculation has engulfed the nation since the couple announced they were due to have a baby in October. And after betting firm Paddy Power slashed odds on the baby being born this week, many experts feel this is a clear sign of what we should expect. According to The Sun, the bookies used to believe the royal youngster would be born on April 21, sharing its birthday with the Queen.
Currently, the odds Meghan will give birth this week stand at 2/1.
Those odds make the coming days most likely of all for the baby to arrive.
The following week odds are priced at 4/1 as well as in two weeks time.
A spokesperson for Paddy Power said: “We’ve slashed the odds of Meghan and Harry’s first child to be born this week, as fans anticipate an April arrival.

“Who knows, the baby could even arrive as a perfect distraction to the UK’s latest Brexit departure date – Friday.
“Meanwhile, it is now odds-on that they have a little girl, with Diana still rated the most-likely choice of name.”
The latest development comes after tennis star Serena Williams mistakenly said the word “she” when referring to her friend Meghan Markle’s new baby.
The pair are known to be close, with the legendary sports star recently at Meghan’s New York baby shower.
Ms Williams also offered the mother-to-be some advice, saying: “Accept mistakes and don’t expect to be perfect.
“We put so much pressure on ourselves.”
“My friend is pregnant and she’s like, ‘Oh, my kid’s gonna do this,’ and I just looked at her and I was like, ‘No, she’s not.’ I’m like, ‘No, you’re not.’
“Everything is not gonna go as planned. You just gotta go with the flow.”
