The moment we’ve all been waiting for has arrived: the Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle is in labor!
The news broke on the morning of May 6th and an official confirmation from Buckingham Palace followed shortly after. “The Duchess went into labor in the early hours of this morning. The Duke of Sussex was by Her Royal Highnesses’ side. An announcement will be made soon,” the statement read.
The royal couple previously decided to keep the details of their baby’s arrival more private than we’re used to with Kate Middleton. This means royal fans should not expect that Meghan will pose on the steps of a hospital like Kate Middleton after the birth of each of her three children. Instead, Meghan and Harry have decided to take some time for themselves for a few days and then do an official photo shoot with their new baby on the grounds of Windsor Castle.
The new Royal baby will be the seventh in line for the throne after Prince Charles, Prince William, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, Prince Louis and Harry.
