Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle Did Not Have The Type Of Birth She Planned For According To Reports

It is no longer news that the royal 1st baby of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle arrived earlier in the week. What is news however is that, the Duchess’s dream of having a home birth did not materialise according to reports.

Meghan had her baby in a London hospital and not at home as she wanted, a report by Daily Mail revealed. The Duchess who was overdue by a week was reportedly rushed to an unnamed hospital on Sunday by Prince Harry and their Scotland Yard security team. According to the publication, the Duchess, who was a week overdue, was whisked off amid such secrecy that even senior royals weren’t told.

It is understood she was taken to a London hospital where even a ‘basic’ delivery costs upwards of £15,000. The publication continued to say, it is not known whether Meghan, 37, was induced but sources say she remained there overnight before her baby was born at 5.26am on Monday morning, with an elated Prince Harry at her side.

Buckingham Palace declined to comment but sources confirmed that a hospital delivery had taken place. In a break with tradition, the Sussexes announced last month that they wanted to keep details surrounding the birth of their first child private.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, by contrast, had faced a mass photocall at the private Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital, Paddington hours after all three of their children were born.
