With Meghan Markle due to pop at the end of the month, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are giving us an update on their post-birth plans for their bouncing bundle of joy.
A statement from the Royal Household confirms that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have “taken a personal decision to keep the plans around the arrival of their baby private.”
The statement reads: “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.”
This means we probably won’t see the new parents posing on the iconic steps of the Lindo Wing like Prince William and Kate Middleton have become famous for doing.

The Duke of Sussex has proudly been patron of UK based organization Well Child since 2007. Over 100,000 children and young people are living with serious illness or exceptional health needs across the UK. Many spend months, even years in hospital vs at home because there is no support enabling them to leave. Well Child’s vision is for every child and young person living with serious health needs to have the best chance to thrive properly supported at home with their families. Both the Duke and Duchess attended the Well Child Awards in the winter of 2018, supporting the incredible families and children who benefit from the Well Child programs. For those who have inquired, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex ask that you consider supporting @wellchild and three other select charities in lieu of sending baby gifts for their upcoming arrival. Thank you for the support and kindness! Photos via: @wellchild #worldhealthday
It’s been a busy few weeks for the Royal Bump. The latest reports suggest that the pair plan on raising their baby as a vegan. A source told Woman’s Day: “It’s created tense discussions between Meghan and Harry, who doesn’t want to upset his grandmother.
“Meghan keeps pushing the boundaries with the Royals and it’s not being well received, least of all by Her Majesty.
“Bringing the baby up as a vegan simply won’t be tolerated by the monarch.”
While there’s soon going to be the sound of tiny footsteps at Kensington Palace, some trolls weirdly think that Meghan is ‘faking her pregnancy’.

What an incredibly special surprise the grassroots led #globalsussexbabyshower was last Sunday! The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are immensely grateful for the outpouring of love and support in anticipation of the birth of their first child. In lieu of sending gifts, the couple have long planned to encourage members of the public to make donations to select charities for children and parents in need. If you already made a donation, the couple send you their greatest thanks. If you are thinking about it, they ask that you kindly consider the following organisations they’ve selected, which we will highlight here over the next few days: @thelunchboxfund @littlevillagehq @wellchild @baby2baby The Duke and Duchess remain appreciative for your warm wishes and kindness during this especially happy time in their lives! Thank you for sharing the love ❤️
Previously, people spotted a picture of the Duchess bending over with her bump and said they didn’t think it looked ‘natural’. The latest conspiracy theory takes that idea one step further.
Claiming that Markle is always touching her stomach to hold a prosthetic belly in place, this is one of the weirdest royal stories I’ve heard in a while. Admittedly, it’s not as out-there as Prince Philip being a humanoid lizard…but it’s close.
The British public can’t seem to get enough of Harry and Meghan. Only recently, their shared @sussexroyal Instagram account became the fastest to earn one million followers. With their baby just around the corner, expect to see a lot more of the jewels in the Royal crown.
