Prince Harry and Meghan Markle sweetest moments

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle sweetest moments

It's sure to be a huge disappointment to many, but let's not forget that royal mothers posing for the press on the hospital steps hours after delivering a child wasn't always a thing. Surely she had to be overwhelmed, exhausted, and ready to get home and out of the spotlight, so we can't blame Meghan for wanting to take some time to bond with her baby in private.

A statement from Kensington Palace officials on Thursday says that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex "look forward" to sharing the news of their baby's birth once they have had a chance to celebrate privately. Granny Jeannette also has another photo of Markle.

The Duchess will no doubt have mum Doria by her side as soon as baby arrives. But both sons of Princess Diana are equally as adored by the public, and the excitement about this baby far belies his or her position in the royal hierarchy.

Buckingham Palace has officially revealed that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will keep the birth of their baby private.

Last year, Prince Harry had chosen not to follow in the footsteps of his grandfather Prince Philip, father Prince Charles and older brother Prince William even during his wedding with Markle.

According to royal protocol, the doctors can not be excluded from the process entirely, and should anything go wrong in the birth they will be present to step in.

"It's very important for Prince Harry and Meghan to flower and create a new direction", says royal historian Robert Lacey. She was adamant that she wanted her own people.

Meghan, 37, has already snubbed the royals' preferred maternity ward, the Lindo Wing at St Mary's Hospital in London, breaking a four-decade tradition.

"She just wants a normal, natural birth and to bond with her baby, without being primped and blow-dried to within an inch of her life just for the pictures", the source told the paper.

In Prince William's family, Kate Middleton's latest pregnancy with Prince Louis, for instance, spanned exactly a month after she temporarily suspended her royal duties, which may hint at Meghan's due date - around 20 April.
