Prince Harry’s official schedule suddenly changed Friday and now he’s not going to be out of town for two days as previously announced ahead of Meghan Markle giving birth.

The Duke of Sussex was previously scheduled to fly to the Netherlands next week and be gone both Wednesday, May 8 and Thursday, May 9. But now, his trip will only involve a one-day visit to the Hague that is only a one-hour flight away from his home in London where the expectant Duchess of Sussex is believed to be due any day now, according to People magazine.

“Due to the logistical planning for the traveling press to cover visits and engagements by The Royal Family, we have taken the decision to postpone The Duke of Sussex’s scheduled visit to Amsterdam on Wednesday 8th May 2019,” a spokesperson for the palace shared.

“The Duke is currently scheduled to travel to The Hague on Thursday 9th May for the launch of the Invictus Games The Hague 2020 as planned,” the person added.

Royal sources confirmed to the outlet that the change in plans was regarding the logistics of covering members of the royal family by the press and nothing to do with the former “Suits” actress’ due date.

It comes after reports surfaced this week speculating that Queen Elizabeth II visit to the couple combined with Prince Harry leaving next week for a royal visit was because the duchess had possibly already given birth. It started after a British radio D.J. speculated that he might know something and it was that Markle had reportedly already had her child.

“I think I know something,” D.J. Chris Evans shared, as reported by Vanity Fair. “There might be a new royal baby already.”

“Well, there’s more than a hint, what more of a hint do you want, other than the fact that I think there might be a new royal baby already,” he added, when pressed by his co-host. “I’m just saying, I’m just putting it out there, right?”

Evans continued, “The Queen has been to see Meghan and Harry . . . at their place, right? Now, she doesn’t do that. That’s all I’m saying.”

Buckingham Palace has since responded to those rumors and shut them down.

“The baby hasn’t been born yet,” a rep from the royal household shared.

I guess for now, royal baby watchers will just have to wait and see what happens next.
