Meghan and Harry will follow these royal baby traditions experts predict

The Duke And Duchess Of Sussex Visit Birkenhead

The Duchess of Sussex may be bringing a certain free spirit to the royal family, but there are a set of protocols which even she and Prince Harry are expected to follow when it comes to the birth of their baby.

On a recent royal visit the happy couple told an onlooker that they didn't know the sex of the baby, and there's a reason for this.
