Prince Harry surprises fans and leaves BIG clue about Baby Sussex's arrival
Prince Harry has surprised fans with an appearance at the London Marathon.
Many thought that he would be at home with Duchess Meghan, awaiting the arrival of Baby Sussex, but were delighted by the popular royal's appearance.
The Prince couldn’t contain his joy as he attended the marathon, which was a surprise even to him as to whether he could attend.
A spokesperson from the Palace told People:
“He had always planned to go but with the birth of his child due it was not announced in advance in case he was no longer able to attend. He was pleased he was able to attend.”
The appearance of Prince Harry at the London Marathon confirms one thing to eager fans: Baby Sussex still hasn't made their debut into the world.
Prince Harry took to the Sussex Royal Instagram account to share some of the best photos from the day, with the caption explaining how he has been personally involved with the London Marathon since 2012 as he believes “mental fitness is absolutely crucial to… wellbeing”.
He also congratulated those who entered the marathon, saying:
“These runners not only set a goal for themselves personally and emotionally, but the majority of runners choose to raise money for charity.
“It’s the perfect fusion of doing something good for yourself while doing good for others.”
Whilst the Prince couldn’t contain his joy at attending the event, this was a sentiment felt by many who attended the marathon.View this post on Instagram
