The Duchess of Sussex has revealed her excitement at waiting to find out the gender of her firstborn with Prince Harry. Though speculation continues as to whether the royal baby will be a boy or a girl, Meghan confirmed they wanted to keep the gender a "secret" so they can enjoy the surprise. Captured chatting to a guest at the recent Endeavour Fund Awards, she said: "We don't know. Yes we decided to keep it a secret, and then that way… it's one of those things, like, no matter what it is, it's still going to be a surprise." The footage was shared by royal fan account @harry_meghan_updates on Instagram.

There was plenty of chatter about the unborn royal baby during the evening, with Prince Harry also overheard telling one invitee, "there’s a heavy baby in her!" Meanwhile, Meghan praised her husband, saying: "He’s going to be the best dad." The pregnant Duchess showcased her growing baby bump in a chic Givenchy shirt and high-waisted maxi skirt, which featured a daring thigh high split.
