The Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced they were having a baby on October 15, 2018 – five months after they wed and following weeks of speculation. Ahead of the birth, the duke and duchess made a personal decision to keep their arrangements private, amid speculation they had opted for a home birth at their new home, Frogmore Cottage, close to the Queen’s Windsor Castle home. Meghan, 37, has been staying close to home with her mum, Doria Ragland, by her side at Frogmore Cottage, Windsor, for more than a week. Speculation has surrounded where she will give birth – with rumours she opted for the Kensington wing of the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital – where pals George Clooney’s wife Amal had their children. The royal couple have said they will only share the news of the baby’s arrival once they have had a chance to celebrate privately as a family. The newest addition to the Windsor family will be a first cousin of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, and a fourth grandchild for the Prince of Wales. The Sun on Sunday revealed April 28 was Meghan’s official due date – but Prince Harry, 34, surprised fans when he arrived at the London Marathon last weekend to hand out medals.
