Make-up artist Daniel Martin attended Meghan's baby shower in New York in February.

Kensington Palace has kept the Duchess of Sussex’s due date under wraps, with the pregnancy announcement simply stating the baby is due in spring 2019.

But her make-up artist Daniel Martin has sparked speculation about the arrival of Baby Sussex with one of his latest Instagram posts.

He’s announced that he will be appearing at The Makeup Show in New York on May 5, 2019.

It’s believed that US-based Daniel is currently in the UK, after he posted photos of scenes around Windsor last week on his Instagram Stories.

His visit fuelled rumours that he has flown over to make Meghan look camera-ready after the birth.

If Daniel is set to head back to New York before May 5, it could suggest that the baby’s arrival is imminent.

While the duke and duchess have opted out of doing a post-birth media photocall, it’s understood that there will be photographs of them with their new arrival a few days afterwards.

Buckingham Palace announced last week that Meghan and Harry have taken the personal decision to keep details around the birth private and would like to spend time with their little one before sharing images with the world.

Harry’s father Prince Charles may have also inadvertently hinted at Meghan’s due date.

He and wife Camilla are set to head off on a four-day visit to Germany on May 7 and this has lead royal commentators to believe that the baby could arrive before then.
