Harry and Meghan to keep details about their baby’s birth private
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are to keep details about the arrangements for the birth of their baby private, Kensington Palace has said.
The decision comes after growing speculation Harry and Meghan are planning a home birth for their first child at their new home Frogmore Cottage, close to the Queen’s Windsor Castle home.
It has also been reported the couple have picked their own medical team to directly oversee the arrival of the Queen’s latest great grandchild – dispensing with senior medical staff associated with the royal family.
Kensington Palace said in statement: “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.
“Their Royal Highnesses have taken a personal decision to keep the plans around the arrival of their baby private.
“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.”
