Rumours are flying that the Duchess of Sussex is in labour after an ambulance was spotted near her home.

The ambulance was seen on Thursday afternoon (local time) in the area of Windsor, near Frogmore House, where Prince Harry and his wife Meghan live.

"Private ambulance with police escort seen driving through Windsor," BBC TV news presenter Simon McCoy said on Twitter.

Rumours have been swirling Meghan has already given birth but hasn't announced it after Prince Harry announced on Wednesday (NZ time) he will be headed to the Netherlands next week.

The child won't have its debut on the steps of the Lido Wing, going against tradition. Instead the Duke and Duchess will make the announcement when they're ready.

The announcement is expected in the days - not hours - following the birth. Baby Sussex will become seventh in line to the throne behind Harry.
