Meghan Markle and Prince Harry to celebrate royal baby birth ‘in PRIVATE’


Prince Harry and his pregnant wife Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, say they have made a decision to keep plans around their first baby's arrival private. They will be a fourth grandchild for the Prince of Wales and an eighth great grandchild for the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh.

They said in their statement they are grateful for the goodwill messages they have received from around the world.

The Duke and Duchess, who are expecting their first child later this month, said they would be "celebrating privately as a new family" after the birth as a first priority.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have announced their plans for when the Duchess of Sussex gives birth.

William and Kate staged public photocalls to present their newborns to the waiting press, and the comings and goings, by royals and the Middleton family, from St Mary's in London were screened live around the globe.

In one of those incredible coincidences, just hours before CBS News's announcement, King BFF Oprah Winfrey announced her partnership with Prince Harry in creating a mental-health series to launch next year on Apple, where Oprah has a deal.

The new arrival will be seventh in line to the throne from birth.

"Punters have leapt to the conclusion that Harry and Meghan have opted for a home birth", said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.

There have also been numerous bets on what name the child will be given, with Diana the top pick (4/1) followed by Victoria (8/1) and Alice (10/1).

Royal correspondent Rebecca English revealed that Harry and Meghan have made the decision to keep the plans of the arrival of their baby "private for now".
