Duchess Meghan is on maternity leave ahead of the birth of Baby Sussex and it’s looking a lot like she’s going to follow in Kate’s footsteps when it comes to one particular birthing choice.
A royal welcome
There’s been lots of chatter about where Duchess Meghan will give birth to her and Prince Harry’s first child, with it now looking very much like she’ll continue with a tried-and-true royal tradition.
Initially, there was a theory that Baby Sussex might be welcomed at Frimley Park Hospital in Surrey. This hospital is a little closer to Harry and Meg’s new home (which they are yet to move into) at Frogmore Cottage and is where Prince Edward’s wife Sophie, the Countess of Wessex, gave birth to Lady Louise Windsor and James, Viscount Severn.

St Mary’s Hospital in London is now thought to be the chosen facility with measures already being taken to ensure that everything goes smoothly ahead of Meghan’s due date.
The popular expectant royal told fans that she is due at the end of April or early May during a walkabout earlier this year. The latest leaks appear to confirm this too.
