Meghan Markle, 37, and Prince Harry, 34, are expecting their first child to be born any day now. The Duchess has been keeping a low-profile since the beginning of March this year as she prepares for life as a first-time-mum. Traditionally, members of the Royal Family have posed with their newborn children very quickly after the birth, but Meghan is unlikely to do this. Instead, royal enthusiasts may have to wait days to see the new baby and Meghan may even break tradition and release the first photo herself.
Recently, members of the Royal Family have given birth in the maternity ward, the Lindo Wing in St Mary’s Hospital.
Princess Diana and Kate Middleton, 37, both chose to give birth to their children in this exclusive ward.
Just hours after having their children, the royals stepped out with their partner to show the world their newborn, but it is unlikely Meghan will do this.
Meghan and Harry have chosen to keep the location of where the baby will be born a secret, and some people believe the child could be born home or in a different hospital completely.
Whether she gives birth at home or in hospital, Meghan is not expected to show her baby off the same day.
A palace statement noted the pair want more privacy during the birth and in the following days.
The statement said: “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.”
Royal fans may not find out straight away when the Duchess has given birth or get an immediate glimpse of the baby, although they could pose a few days later.
Meghan and Harry have been known to break royal protocol and could do so again by releasing their own photos of the royal baby instead of posing publicly.
Their sister-in-law, Kate Middleton, values the privacy of her own three children and they are rarely seen in public.
