She also revealed they don't know the gender yet.

Meghan Markle has accidentally let her baby's due date slip while speaking with well-wishers in England.

The 37-year-old revealed her baby is due in late April while meeting locals in Birkenhead with Prince Harry.

The Duchess of Sussex also revealed she didn't know if she is having a boy or a girl because they want it to be a surprise. 

Until now we'd never had any public confirmation about when Meghan's due, but many believed she was due in March due to the size of her bump.

Kim Thompson, a royal fan who met Meghan during the public appearance, told Daily Mail:

"She said she is six months pregnant and due at the end of April, beginning of May."

She also added:

"Another woman in the crowd joked that she was a trained midwife. Meghan said that one of her friends had [given birth] five weeks early and [the midwife] said the baby comes when they are ready.

"I said, as long as they are healthy, and Meghan agreed. Then she said, pointing to Harry, 'He's going to make a fantastic father'."

Meghan also told a young girl in the crowd she and Harry wanted the gender of the baby to be a surprise.

Kitty Dudley, a student from St Anne's Primary School said:

"Meghan came up to me and asked me how old I was and where I went to school. I could see her bump and I asked if she was having a boy or a girl and she said 'we don't know whether it's a boy or girl, we are keeping it as a surprise'."

Another member of the crowd asked the important question of how Meghan is actually able to cope walking in heels all day, to which the Duchess replied:

"One day at a time!"

One painful day at a time, no doubt!
