Prince Harry and Meghan Markle shared their birth plan with the world and people are shook. While Kate Middleton and Princess Diana gave birth at St. Mary’s in London and then gamely posed for photos shortly after welcoming their kids, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are playing by their own rules.
“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,” read a statement from Kensington Palace on Thursday. “Their Royal Highnesses have taken a personal decision to keep the plans around the arrival of their baby private.”
In other words, no photo opp and not announcement until they’re good and ready.
The statement concludes, “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.”
The 37-year-old will likely give birth at Frimley Park Hospital in Surrey, or their home at Frogmore Cottage, according to reports.
