Royal baby is coming: Meghan Markle to deliver soon; Duchess of Sussex’s NHS maternity unit on standby

Royal fans, brace yourself for reports suggest Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are set to welcome their baby. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who tied the knot in May 2018, could announce that the royal baby has arrived. The former Suits actress had confirmed her pregnancy a few months after the royal wedding. While the couple chose to keep the due date under the wraps, they had confirmed that the baby would arrive in Spring 2019, sometime in April.

As per new reports, it wouldn’t be long before we hear that Meghan has delivered her baby. The Sun reports that Meghan was due to deliver on Sunday, April 28. It is also revealed that NHS Frimley Hospital, which is 30 minutes away from the Duke and Duchess’ Frogmore Cottage, has been placed on standby.

A source told the UK publication, “It won’t be long now. Meghan’s really excited. Of course she’s nervous like any first-time mum but she and Harry can’t wait. She’s been preparing for the birth – she wants it to be as natural as possible – and so has been practising hypnobirthing and breathing techniques with Harry.

It’s been a huge support having her mum by her side and now she’s just getting as much rest as she can.”

The outlet also shares that Meghan wants to stay at home long after she goes into labour and deliver the royal baby in her home. However, in case of complications, she will be transferred to the hospital.

“The plan has never changed, Meghan has been very clear what she wants. She is taking medical advice daily and she and Harry are very flexible and will be guided by their team. When she goes into labour, she wants to remain at home for as long as possible but she’s in a situation where if something did go wrong and she had to be whisked to hospital, she would be.”
