Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have plenty of fans excited about the birth of their new baby, but they will have to wait longer. Keri Lumm reports on what we know so far.
Despite being part of a centuries-old institution with myriad rituals and customs, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle aren’t afraid to break from tradition. Their culture-blending wedding ceremony last spring proved that, and now, as they prepare for the imminent arrival of their first child, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are deviating from recent royal precedent once again.
This morning, Buckingham Palace announced that Harry and Meghan are keeping the plans surrounding the birth of their baby “private.”
“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are very grateful for the goodwill they have received from people throughout the United Kingdom and around the world as they prepare to welcome their baby,” reads the statement released today.
“Their Royal Highnesses have taken a personal decision to keep the plans around the arrival of their baby private. The Duke and Duchess look forward to sharing the exciting news with everyone once they have had an opportunity to celebrate privately as a new family.”
Thus far, there has been no announcement of where Meghan will give birth, in a hospital or otherwise, and there will be no photocall with the newborn royal baby outside the hospital.
