"I don't know if you've heard... but we're family somehow."

While the Brits continue to speculate if Meghan's already carrying baby#2, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex made a surprise appearance at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park to see the Boston Red Sox take on the New York Yankees. 

The event was held in partnership with Harry's Invictus Games Foundation and marks the first time a Major League Baseball game was played in a European country. 

There was no sign of their newborn but the two were gifted with adorable mini jerseys from both teams in a pre-game meet and greet with the baseball teams. 

During their meet-up with the Boston Red Sox, Meghan met one of the players, Markus 'Mookie' Betts, with whom she shares an ancestor.

"I don't know if you've heard... but we're family somehow," explained the Red Sox outfielder, with Meghan responding with a hug. 

According to the Boston Globe, the baseball player had learned of their family connection a year ago and has been wanting to meet Meghan ever since. 

"That would be cool, to meet her," Mookie commented in 2018 when he first heard of the connection, adding that he'd be curious to know if she enjoyed watching baseball. 

Who knows, the baseball player might get an invite to Frogmore Cottage to meet little Archie.
