Royal Baby Watch 2019 shows no signs of ending anytime soon. Royal betters have closed the books for wagers on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's baby, amidst rumors that she's already given birth. There was also a Bentley with pink blankets in the window being escorted by a police escort through a town near Windsor on Friday.

  • The car apparently belonged to Queen Elizabeth, but it caused people to wonder if Baby Sussex has already made his or her debut.

    Motorist Tamoor Ali, 37, told the Daily Mail, "We had got off the M4 and a police motorbike stopped us and asked us to pull to the left. Then we saw a vehicle that had pink paraphernalia at the back of the windscreen go past -- it was going very slowly over speed bumps." He added, "It seemed like someone was in there who couldn't handle speedbumps -- a baby. It seems to me that the baby is here and they haven't announced it yet." 

    Later the same day, Queen Elizabeth presided over a service of the Royal Victorian Order at St. George's Chapel in Windsor, so presumably the car was hers, not Baby Sussex's.

    Also according to the Daily Mail, bookmakers have stopped bets on Meghan's baby, as some people are convinced that she has already given birth. A flurry of bets that recently came in had bookmakers wondering if "someone knows something" from inside the royal inner circle. 

    A Paddy Power spokesman said, "We've suspended betting on which day Harry and Meghan's baby will arrive following a huge increase in wagers which indicate to us that someone knows something -- and perhaps the child is already born. That, combined with the rumours and speculation has us convinced that the royal arrival has already happened and if the betting is anything to go by, it's almost certainly a baby girl."

  • Meghan also hasn't been seen in public in nearly two months.

    Her last appearance with with Prince Harry, when they visited New Zealand House in London on March 19, after a terror attack on a Mosque in Christchurch that killed at least 50 people.

    The Duchess of Sussex told fans earlier this year that she was due in late April or early May, but had people convinced it was going to be on the earlier side by beginning her maternity leave so early.

  • The palace has reportedly said they'll announce when Meghan is in labor, but we're still not totally convinced.

    Daily Mail reporter Rebecca English tweeted on May 1, "#BabySussex isn't secretly here, I’m assured. This is a long standing engagement that they have had to announce." Buckingham Palace also reportedly confirmed to Entertainment Tonight Canada that "the media will be notified when Meghan is in labor."

    But what if there was an emergency and there wasn't time to report? All we know at this point is that we're waiting on the edge of our seats for more news. Come on, Baby Sussex! We're all waiting for you
