Has Meghan Markle broken the royal tradition of discovering Archie's sex? Duchess referred to a & # 39; baby boy & # 39; in editorial letter for Vogue edition that she edited during her pregnancy
- Meghan Markle, 37, wrote editor's letter for the September issue of Vogue
- The piece appears to have been written well in advance of publication this week
- She thinks when the problem comes out that she & # 39; three month old baby boy & # 39; hold
- Started working on the magazine in January and hinted that she knew the sex of the baby before birth
The Duchess of Sussex seems to have hinted that she and Prince Harry knew that they were expecting a baby boy before his arrival.
Meghan, 37, and Harry, 34, welcomed son Archie in May, but insisted during pregnancy that they would only discover the gender of their baby at birth, according to royal tradition.
However, in the letter from her British Vogue editor, Meghan explicitly mentions & # 39; holding a baby & # 39 ;, and wrote: & # 39; I was about five months pregnant when the trial started and by the time you experienced this problem hold in your hands, my husband and I will hold our three month old baby boy in ours. & # 39;
Although it was not known when she wrote the letter, it is thought that the duchess began working on the problem with editor-in-chief Edward Enninful in January – four months before Archie's arrival.
Some royal guards, including those at Cosmopolitan, read this as an indication that the royal already knew she was expecting a son when she wrote the play.

Although it is not known when Meghan wrote the letter, the duchess said that she had been working on the magazine since January
The Cosmopolitan article notes: & # 39; We don't know exactly when Meghan wrote her editor's letter, but considering how far ahead magazines work (the issue is the September issue, don't forget it and it will be out in a few days published) & # 39; time) there is every chance that it was written before the birth of Archie. & # 39;
Meghan and Harry said at different stages of pregnancy that they had not discovered the gender of the baby.
In January, during a visit to Birkenhead, Meghan heard good wishes that she and Harry had chosen not to find out if it was a girl or a boy, so they thought it was a & # 39; surprise & # 39; can keep.

However, rumors continued during pregnancy, with royal guards reporting suspected signs that the couple had discovered the birth.
After Meghan & # 39; s New York baby shower, it was speculated that the royal baby would be a boy after the former Suits co-star Abigail Spencer of the Duchess was spotted with a blue flower gift bag filled with blue paper tissue.
And Meghan was regularly attracted to the color blue during her pregnancy, and in particular on important royal occasions such as the Christmas Day service in Sandringham, which could have been a nod to the gender of her baby.

She wore navy blue or blue on a third of her public activities during pregnancy, with only a handful of pink.
Royal commentator Victoria Arbiter stated in May that the & # 39; royal philosophy & # 39; is to keep the sex of the baby secret until the day of birth.
Kate Middleton and Prince William kept the sexes of all three of their children a secret until they were born, and they were public about their decision.
Although this is usually a standard rule for members of the royal family, Queen Elizabeth II has not made it an official ban.
