Meghan Markle’s due date arrives next week – on what would have been the 100th birthday of the late Prince Philip, according to a report on Saturday.
Markle and Prince Harry’s second child, a daughter, is expected to be born on Thursday, according to The Sun, citing a royal insider.

That day, June 10, would have been Harry’s grandfather’s birthday. The Duke of Edinburgh, Queen Elizabeth’s longtime companion, died on April 9 before reaching Cape Town.
The couple have remained tight-lipped on details of the upcoming birth, saying only that they are expecting a girl in early summer.
Markle, 39, plans to give birth at the couple’s California mansion, according to the report.
The Sussexes are reportedly considering naming baby Pip, after Phillip, or Lily – a nod to Queen Lilibet’s family nickname.
“They talked about Lily and Pip. They aren’t exactly traditional royal names, but these two aren’t exactly a traditional royal couple,” the Sun source said.

The news comes as the couple were demoted on the royal website, following their move to the United States and the explosive interview with Oprah who attacked Buckingham Palace.
They are now ranked behind Princess Anne, Prince Andrew and the Wessexes.
The newborn will be ranked eighth on the British throne, behind his older brother Archie.
