Parents-to-be Megan and Prince Harry have chosen not to use the Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital, The Sun reports.
The Paddington hospital has an illustrious history, having been used by Princess Anne, Princess Diana, and the Duchess of Cambridge.
Instead, Meghan, 37, will reportedly give birth closer to the couple’s home in Windsor.
The source claimed: “This child will not be born at the Lindo.
“She just wants a normal, natural birth and to bond with her baby”
“The talk of all the senior clinicians there is that Meghan doesn’t want to copy what Kate did.
“Harry and Meghan realise there is intense public interest but this baby is not a direct heir to the throne and they want the birth to be as private as possible.
“Meghan is nervous about complications such as an emergency Caesarean and doesn’t want the pressure of having to look immaculate on the hospital steps just hours later.
“Like any anxious first-time mum, she’s worried about the birth itself.”
“She just wants a normal, natural birth and to bond with her baby without, being primped and blow-dried to within an inch for a life just for the pictures,” the source added.
Meghan is classed as having a “geriatric pregnancy” due to being older than 35, which carries a slightly higher risk of complications according to the NHS.
Bookmakers have recently slashed the odds of Meghan giving birth to twins.
Allegedly, she could give birth “any day now”.
The Palace has denied claims that Meghan and Harry will raise their child to be “gender neutral”.
Kensington Palace declined to comment when approached by Daily Star Online.
