Meghan Markle baby: Four ways Meghan’s pregnancy has been different than Kate Middleton’s

No morning sickness 

Kate, during her pregnancies, suffered from a severe form of morning sickness known as Hyperemesis Gravidarum. 

This saw Kate hospitalised on a few occasions, as it can leave expectant mothers dehydrated and needing intravenous fluids. 

Other side effects can include weight loss, fainting, rapid heart rate and extreme fatigue. 

It is not known whether Meghan experienced morning sickness, but if she did it was mild enough not to interfere with her royal duties.

Different hospital 

Kate attended the same hospital for the births of all three of her children, the private Lindo Wing in St Mary’s Hospital, Paddington. 

This hospital is one famed for its royal and celebrity clientele, with Princes William and Harry both born there, as well as Lady Gabriella Windsor and Zara Phillips.

The hospital Meghan has chosen is not known yet, but it is thought to not be the Lindo Wing. 

There are suggestions Baby Sussex will be born either at home at Frogmore Cottage or at the NHS Frimley Park hospital close to the couple’s home in Windsor. 

No photo

Kate and Prince William posed on the steps to the Lindo Wing with each of their three children, showing them to the world. 

However, it seems Meghan and Harry will not follow suit at whichever hospital they have chosen – issuing a statement detailing how they intend to celebrate as a family privately before releasing information to the public. 

The statement read: “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.”

This could perhaps mean an official photograph is released instead of standing outside the hospital in front of the world’s press.

Baby shower in NYC

Another distinct difference between the two Duchess’s pregnancies is the fact Meghan flew to NYC for a baby shower. 

Kate, Duchess of Cambridge did not have a baby shower for any of her three children as the tradition is something which originates from the United States.

Meghan flew to New York City in February to celebrate her pregnancy with close friends.

Those in attendance included Meghan’s former Suits co-star Abigail Spencer, designer Micha Nonoo, Meghan’s best friend Jessica Mulroney and tennis player Serena Williams among others. 

Flowers were seen entering the Mark Hotel in New York, but what went on inside the exclusive party was kept quiet.
