Royal baby watch: Meghan’s home birth plans in doubt

As the world waits for the birth of Baby Sussex, Meghan’s apparent plans for a home birth may be forced to change

Well-wishers and the world’s media have swarmed Windsor as they patiently await the arrival of Harry and Meghan’s first child.

It has been reported that Meghan was planning to give birth at the couple’s Frogmore Cottage inside the grounds of Windsor Castle.


But with the baby now believed to be overdue, Meghan is facing the prospect of having to be induced in hospital.

While the exact due date has never been revealed, Meghan let slip that Baby Sussex was due in late April or early May.

Royal insiders believe the baby is now around a week overdue.

Prince Harry has postponed a planned trip to Amsterdam set down for this week raising speculation the royal birth could be imminent.

Buckingham Palace says the trip was put off for “logistical reasons”.

Prince Charles also has a three-day trip to Germany scheduled from Wednesday, prompting talk the birth could happen before then.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are attempting to keep the birth of their child as private as possible.

They’re not expected to show their new arrival to the public, but are instead expected to release photos within a few days.
