In case you've been living under a rock, we are officially in Royal Baby Countdown time. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are expecting their first child together this spring, and the anticipation is getting real! Sure, they're technically not our royals. But Meghan is one of our own! An American-gone-royal. So it's almost like we have our very own Duchess, right? Ever since the palace announced Meghan's pregnancy, the rest of the world has been clamoring for as many details as we could get our hands on. But, as is typical of the royal family, details have been scarce. We don't even know when she's due! We'll hand it to Kensington Palace - they know how to keep a secret.
However, that won't stop the rest of the world from making some pretty educated guesses when we get a clue. The Duchess of Sussex recently celebrated her pregnancy with a baby shower in New York City, and eagle-eyed royal watchers think they may have cracked the case when it comes to what Meghan and Harry are having. It's all in the flowers, people.

"You do not have to be defined by your injury or disability. You may not realise or appreciate it yet, but do not underestimate the incredible impact you are having on those around you, by simply being yourself." — The Duke of Sussex, as he and The Duchess attended the #EndeavourFundAwards. The Duke presented Shaun with the Endeavour Fund Henry Worsley Award — swipe to watch Shaun’s story. Shaun Pascoe was diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress after numerous tours around the world with the @RoyalAirForceUK Medical Emergency Response Team. He has now set up the Forces’ Sailing Charity @TurnToStarboard, providing more than 1200 sailing opportunities to service personnel and veterans. The Endeavour Fund Awards celebrate the achievements of wounded, injured and sick servicemen and women who have taken part in remarkable sporting and adventure challenges over the last year to help with their recovery.
Meghan and baby were showered with love at an intimate affair held at The Mark Hotel in NYC last weekend. And now we're getting a sneak peek at some of the insider details! Author and illustrator Darcy Miller shared some darling photos on Instagram of the personalized sweets and treats she provided for the shower (with the help of none other than Serena Williams!). We definitely see some pink details there, which could point to Baby Sussex being a girl!
The big clue comes in the form of the gorgeous floral arrangements that were at the shower. Meghan donated everything to local organization Repeat Roses, which recycles and redistributes flowers to other charitable organizations. What an amazing idea! Some of Meghan's flowers ended up at Hope Lodge in NYC, which provides support and accommodations for cancer patients and their caregivers.

That is a lot of pink flowers, you guys! So what do you think? Could these floral arrangements be the clue we've all been waiting for? Is Baby Sussex going to be a girl? We're sure the official royal response will be silence, but this is definitely a sign!
