The Duke and Duchess of Sussex who married in May 2018 are due to welcome their first child this spring. They are currently enjoying a 3-day royal tour of Morocco. During one of their trips, Harry, known for his cheeky sense of humour, joked that Meghan’s baby might not be his.

Whilst the Royal couple visited Education For All, a boarding house that supports female education in the rural communities of the High Atlas mountain range, the pair chatted with a few of the school’s teachers.

“I wish to say congratulations for your pregnancy”, said one of the women in attendance.

Harry smiled and turned towards his wife and said, “Wait, you’re pregnant?”

“Surprise!” Meghan replied as people in the room laughed.

“Is it mine?”, he added mischievously.

Paternity testing fit for royalty

An accredited and experienced DNA testing laboratory such as AlphaBiolabs can provide a probability of paternity in excess of 99.999% to confirm a biological relationship. Alternatively, the alleged father will be excluded as being the biological father.

There are two types of paternity testing: peace of mind and legal. Peace of mind paternity tests involve collecting DNA samples in your own home and returning these to the laboratory for processing. Legal paternity tests require DNA samples to be collected via a controlled chain-of-custody procedure. In these cases, a witness is used to verify the authenticity of the sample.

AlphaBiolabs prides itself on offering the fastest and most accurate UKAS-accredited testing services in the UK and would be happy to help the Royal couple resolve any paternity disputes. Harry can also take comfort in the knowledge that his grandmother awarded AlphaBiolabs with a Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Innovation for its next-day DNA testing services. Although, we highly suspect such services won’t be required. Maybe Harry needs to stop with his ‘dad jokes’ and rein in his mischievous sense of humour.
