Sources share the latest Meghan Markle update

The latest news out of Frogmore Cottage is that everything is pretty relaxed ahead of Baby Sussex’s birth. According to a report from Harper’s Bazaar, a friend of Markle’s said she is “comfortable and content,” adding, “She’s got this.”

Prince Harry and Markle’s mom, Doria Ragland, are with the mom-to-be and maintaining privacy from the media and royal fans, with the source noting, “They’re in their own bubble at the moment. Meg is with the most important people in her life… she’s calm.”

Prince Harry and Markle are keeping the baby details sparse

Prince Harry and Markle made it very clear that they want to keep the details of their baby private and make the birth announcement on their own time.

Buckingham Palace released a statement that explained: “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. Their Royal Highnesses have taken a personal decision to keep the plans around the arrival of their baby private. 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.”

Prince Harry shuffled his schedule

In anticipation of the baby’s arrival, Prince Harry made a change to his schedule, as he was expected to visit The Netherlands on May 8, but shortened the trip from two days to just one. Buckingham Palace released a statement that attributed the change to logistical reasons.

The statement noted: “Due to the logistical planning for the traveling press to cover visits and engagements by The Royal Family, we have taken the decision to postpone The Duke of Sussex’s scheduled visit to Amsterdam on Wednesday 8th May 2019.”

Additionally, the statement shared: “The Duke is currently scheduled to travel to The Hague on Thursday 9th May for the launch of the Invictus Games The Hague 2020 as planned.”

The media will reportedly be alerted when Markle is in labor

While the world awaits the arrival of Baby Sussex and feels a bit in the dark about it, ET Canada reports that Buckingham Palace confirmed the media will be notified when Markle is in labor.

According to a report from PEOPLE, it’s expected that the couple will pose with their baby on the grounds of Windsor Castle for photos in the days after Baby Sussex is born.

Royal correspondent Rebecca English addressed the rumors that Markle already gave birth, noting in a tweet: “No. Am assured that if they are able to tell us she has gone into labour, then they will. I think the misunderstanding about how much is being kept private came as a result of the initial, slightly badly-worded, press release.”
