Queen Elizabeth Just Paid a Secret Visit to Prince Harry & Meghan Markle’s New Home

It’s housewarming time for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have already hosted Prince William and Kate Middleton at their new Frogmore Cottage home, but the Cambridges aren’t the only royals who have come to celebrate with the expectant parents.

According to People, Queen Elizabeth reportedly made the trip to Windsor to visit the 34-year-old duke and 37-year-old duchess’s new digs recently and we can’t help but wonder: Does that mean Baby Sussex has arrived?

Honestly, there’s no telling if the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s first born is here just yet, but royal protocol does state that the 93-year-old monarch must be the first person to be given details about any and all royal baby births. Once she gets the deets, Prince Harry and Markle are welcome to tell anyone and everyone about their newborn. The catch? Harry and Meghan have opted to go the non-traditional route with their child for safety reasons and will not immediately announce the arrival of Baby Sussex. Markle is also expected to not deliver at the Lindo Wing in London, like Kate Middleton and Princess Diana did before her. (She may even swing for a home birth—who knows!)

So, all signs point to Queen Elizabeth’s visit being more of the social variety. And there’s more where that comes from. Harry and Meghan’s five-bedroom Frogmore Cottage is on the Windsor Castle estate, a favorite respite of Her Majesty. The main home and Frogmore are so close, in fact, that Baby Sussex and his/her parents can walk on over to Gan-Gan’s for tea any time she’s in town.

Is there anything better than having a babysitter a hop, skip and a jump away? Nope.
