Prince Harry and Meghan Markle just revealed that they are not going to follow one major royal tradition surrounding the arrival of their baby. Meghan, who is due later this month, do not want any added stress or pressure at the birth of her first child, so she and Prince Harry have decided not to announce the birth of their baby to the public immediately. They have also made a personal decision against the traditional photo shoot outside the hospital just after the birth of their baby, something with which the public has gotten accustomed with both Kate Middleton and before her, Princess Diana.
According to sources, Meghan does not want to have to pose for pictures so soon after giving birth, and the royal couple has therefore decided to do a photo shoot after a few days when the Duchess feels ready for it. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have also expressed that they want to enjoy the special event of childbirth and growing their family privately before sharing it with the public. The parents to be will not keep the exciting news to themselves for very long though, royal sources have said that photos of the two with their new baby are likely to be shared within days after the birth of the child.
As reported by ET Online, Harry and Meghan have moved into their new home at Frogmore Cottage, and are therefore allegedly not going to give birth in the Lindo Wing at St. Mary's Hospital, as Kate Middleton and Princess Diana did. According to rumors, they are opting for nearby Frimley Park Hospital, where Prince Harry's aunt Sophie, Countess of Wessex gave birth to her children.
Meghan and Harry are however going to announce the press corps the moment she goes into labor, and they will also be allowing press on the Long Walk in Windsor. That is where their carriage passed by after their wedding ceremony last year, and they greeted people who had gathered for the joyous occasion, so it is a special place for everyone.
The royal family is reportedly supportive of Prince Harry and Meghan's choices, even though some of them mean breaking traditions. Either way, it is safe to say Baby Sussex's arrival is going to be a massive happening for the parents-to-be as well as for fans of the royal family.
