Prince Harry delays overseas trip, cancels plans

Prince Harry will delay a trip to the Netherlands by one day until May 9, cancelling engagements planned in Amsterdam for the previous day, a palace official says.

Harry's wife Meghan is due to give birth to their first baby any day now, with the cancellation fuelling speculation the baby may be overdue.

"Due to the logistical planning for the travelling press to cover visits and engagements by the royal family, we have taken the decision to postpone the Duke of Sussex's scheduled visit to Amsterdam," a palace official said in a statement to media on Friday.

Harry remains scheduled to travel to the Hague on May 9 to open the Invictus Games, his sporting event for disabled military veterans, the palace added.

British media earlier reported that the trip to the Netherlands had been cancelled.

Royal fans are on tenterhooks waiting for any news of the royal birth.

Meghan gave a clue about her due date when she told a well-wisher, during a visit to Birkenhead in January that her baby was due at the end of April and beginning of May.
