Prince Harry announces surprise trip to the Netherlands next week with Baby

Oprah Winfrey’s podcast series was also on the list along with paid-for mindfulness app Headspace, presumably because Prince Harry – who last year told a monk about his own daily meditation practice – is a fan. The Duke of Sussex is to make a surprise two-day visit to Holland next week, it has been announced, increasing speculation that his first baby will arrive before the weekend.The Duke will travel to Amsterdam on Wednesday, May 8, for the trip, which has been arranged to launch the one year countdown to the Invictus Games.The Duchess is due to give birth any day now, with fans left confused as to the timing of the announcement and whether the Duke would leave either his newborn child or very heavily pregnant wife at home.It is understood that the Duke will cancel the trip at the last minute if necessary.In a short statement, Buckingham Palace said: “While in the Netherlands, the Duke will undertake an official engagement in Amsterdam.”His Royal Highness will then travel to the Hague to officially launch the one year countdown to the Invictus Games – The Hague 2020.

The unexpected visit will pose a significant diary conflict for the Royal Household, with the Duke’s father, the Prince of Wales, already confirmed as making a major trip to Germany at the request of the Government from May 7th to 10th.
