Royal baby: Meghan Markle planning HOME BIRTH at Frogmore Cottage to avoid ‘goldfish bowl’

Baby Sussex is due any day now and Meghan, 37, is hoping to have a home birth at Frogmore Cottage with Prince Harry, 34, by her side. She would be following in the Queen’s footsteps, who gave birth to her four children at her royal residences. But Meghan has not ruled out a hospital delivery due to the increased risks of complications for mothers over the age of 35.

One of Meghan’s American friends claimed a home birth is a likely option as the former actress has “sailed” through her first pregnancy.

The insider told the Daily Mail: “It is her favoured choice but it obviously depends on how things are nearer the time.”

A home birth would be more private for the royal couple who are said to have rejected the Lindo Wing, favoured by the Duchess of Cambridge and Princess Diana, as it felt like a “goldfish bowl”.

Meghan is also not expected to pose with her newborn like Kate and Diana as it goes against her feminist beliefs.

Royal expert Richard Fitzwilliams has predicted that Meghan and Harry could share the first snaps of their tot on Instagram. 

Mr Fitzwilliams told The Sun: “There will be a huge demand for photos and it may well be no coincidence that they have just opened an Instagram account.

“The birth of Baby Sussex will be a global event.

“If there is no pose outside the hospital the couple, on this most personal of occasions, they will be sure to send photos to the millions awaiting them.

“It’s worth remembering they are a celebrity power couple and we know how significant they are in the royal family.”

It follows reports that Meghan has appointed an “unnamed female doctor” to lead her delivery team.

The 37-year-old has broken royal tradition by snubbing the Queen’s expert doctors, who attended the births of all three of the Cambridges’ children.

Meghan is due to give birth this month or in early May but the exact date has not been revealed.
