Prince Harry, Meghan want baby's birth kept 'private'

Prince Harry, Meghan want baby's birth kept 'private'

Markle's Californian childhood is a world away from palace life, but she will likely want the influences from her upbringing to remain strong, with mother Doria Ragland playing a pivotal role. Like the ones after Kate gave birth to her three children.

"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", Buckingham Palace announced in a statement on Thursday. If so, she would not be the first royal to do so as Queen Elizabeth II did not give birth to any of her four children there nor did Sarah Ferguson. The couple made headlines several months ago as they moved out of Kensington Palace, where they lived side by side with Kate and Prince William, favouring a more secluded place - Frogmore Cottage, their own home in Windsor.

"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", the statement concluded.

Judging by Harry and Meghan's focus on privacy, it sounds like they plan on doing royal birth a different way.

The couple's decision to keep details of their baby's birth private, is not too dissimilar to that of Zara and Mike Tindall with their daughters Mia and Lena.

Now it seems she wants to get on that train again, as in a new interview, she said that she's releasing one half of her new book, which will expose more gossip about the Duchess. Both royals appeared for a photo call outside the Lindo Wing - the private maternity ward at St. Mary's hospital in west London - shortly after the delivery of their children.

CNN's royal commentator Victoria Arbiter tweeted: "There is obviously massive global interest in the Sussex Family but this baby will be 7th in line and unlikely to be an HRH".

Royal Correspondent Emily Andrews reported that the mum-to-be wants a more private, normal birth and to bond with her baby without the pressure of looking picture flawless.

So when will we see Baby Sussex for the first time? Kate received praise and criticism, after appearing on the steps of the hospital looking fully recovered, just hours after giving birth to her third baby Prince Louis in April past year.
