It looks like Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are going to be having a baby boy! The Duchess of Sussex, who attended a star-studded baby shower thrown for her by close pals Serena Williams and Amal Clooney, is seven months pregnant and due to give birth in April.

Daniel Martin, the makeup artist behind the Duchess' exceptionally natural makeup on her wedding day, too was a guest at the baby shower. And Martin couldn't help but share some insider pics from the lavish shower, and accidentally give away the royal baby's gender.

Martin, who is also Meghan's close friend, shared a sweet photo of the baby-themed treats given to guests as part of the baby shower. The photo featured biscuits that were shaped and decorated in white and pale blue icing, an indication that the royal could be having a baby boy, reported Express UK.

The baked goodies from the baby shower had a stork carrying a newborn in a blanket with a blue tinge, as well as a rattle and a bib with the word "baby" written in black icing. Martin posted the photo with the caption, "Such an incredible day celebrating", along with the hashtag "#babylove" with three emojis: confetti, a teddy bear and a balloon.



 

 

Moreover, on Tuesday, Meghan's friend and former 'Suits' co-star Abigail Spencer was spotted making an entrance to The Mark, where the Duchess was staying, for her baby shower with a bag covered in blue wrapping paper. This led many to believe Meghan could be having a boy.

However, according to royal expert and commentator Victoria Arbiter, Meghan and Prince Harry are not allowed to find out the gender of their upcoming baby as per protocol. While the Queen has not banned the exercise, it definitely is something that most Britons follow on a general basis.

Arbiter said, "There's a belief that there are so few surprises left in life. Why not save the biggest one for the moment a child is born. This is not just a Royal philosophy, many parents across the UK choose not to find out." Another shocking revelation from the commentator pointed out that members of the royal family cannot hold baby showers.

She said that although baby showers are a "longstanding American tradition, most Brits prefer to bestow gifts once the baby’s born and the sex revealed." She added that there exists a royal rule that the Queen must be informed of the baby’s birth first, which "comes down to a mark of respect."
