Meghan Markle Is Officially In Labour With Her First Baby

Meghan Markle has apparently gone into labour early this morning. The Duchess of Sussex prepares to welcome her first baby with Prince Harry. Everyone is unsure of where she's in labour since the couple planned to keep birth details a secret. 

Royal couples usually allow the media to wait at the hospital doors for the royal babies to be announced to the world. The fact that the details are being kept under wraps, the world might have to wait a little while to welcome the new baby into the world. 

Hours after giving birth, Princess Diana and many other Duchesses have stood on the hospital steps to present their new child to the world.

The couple is breaking the mould and doing things a little differently. Usually, royal couples announce when and where their baby will be born. They've decided to keep all details of the birth under wraps. 

In a statement, they said that they will "celebrate privately as a family". The statement also says that "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.

"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 week, Prince Harry attended the London Marathon which was kept low-key just in case the baby arrived. Early this month, in another surprising turn of events, the Royal couple moved to Frogmore Cottage in the region of Windsor. 

The Royal Baby will grow up on the property which once housed Queen Charlotte and Henry James Sr. Nottingham College on the property of the Royal Palace in London is typically where they would stay. 

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been known to veer off the beaten path as a Royal couple and it's no surprise that the announcement of their baby is being kept a secret.

The Royal baby is expected sometime in the next few hours so stay tuned for updates! 

There is much speculation of what the name will be, with people thinking that if they have a girl, the baby's name could potentially be "Ivy".
