Missy Higgins has admitted to making an awkward mistake after meeting Meghan Markle.

It was just one line in an Instagram post by Missy Higgins, but it caused excitement all around the world.

You see, last month the Aussie singer met the Duchess of Sussex at an afternoon reception at Sydney’s Admiralty House, one of her and The Duke of Sussex Prince Harry’s many official engagements during the royal tour of Australia and the South Pacific.

Following the meeting Missy posted photos of the pair chatting on Instagram and uh, let slip something the world didn’t know.

“What an honour to meet the beautiful Duchess today! She was such a sweetheart. I said I felt sorry for her having to do all these meet-and-greets while 4 months pregnant! What a trooper,” the 35-year-old Scars singer captioned images of herself and The Duchess.

No one knew how far along in her pregnancy Meghan was, so Missy seemed to have scored a major scoop… Except, well, she didn’t.


Appearing on Monday night’s episode of The Project, the singer said she just made up the number.

“I read somewhere that people had worked out that she was three-to-four months pregnant because she said she was due in the Spring.

“So I just wrote that without even thinking, because I thought, ‘everyone knows she’s about four months pregnant,’ and then it was all over newspapers in England and France. Yeah no, we weren’t hanging out like best buds and she wasn’t telling me her deepest secrets.”


So, if they weren’t trading secrets, what did they actually talk about?

“She was just asking about Luna and how it’s all going and you know, she was super sweet,” Higgins recalled.

She said Prince Harry came over afterwards and squeezed the “chubby legs” of Luna, Missy’s second child who was born in August.

“He squeezed Luna’s little chubby legs and said ‘who’s this little cutie’ and he made some joke about never having being seen in the same room as Ed Sheeran because they’re both redheads – he was charming!”

So, Meghan’s exact due date remains a mystery, but Kensington Palace’s pregnancy confirmation said the baby was expected “in the Spring of 2019.” That’s autumn for us down under, meaning Meghan, 37, and Harry, 34, will welcome a gorgeous baby during the month of March, April or May.
