We Might Not Know When Baby Sussex Is Born Until Weeks After Meghan Markle Gives Birth

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have shown us one thing since they’ve been married –they aren’t afraid to break royal tradition. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been doing things their own way since their May 2018 wedding. From splitting their household with Prince William and Duchess Kate Middleton to moving away from London to Windsor –Markle and Prince Harry do what they want, when and how they want to do it. Now, the prince and the duchess are about to break another royal tradition when their first child, Baby Sussex, is born.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are keeping Baby Sussex’s birth a secret

Since Markle and Prince Harry announced they were expecting in Oct. 2018 –we’ve been obsessed with the birth of Baby Sussex. Though the royal couple understands the public excitement for their bundle of joy, they are also asking for privacy. The Palace has released a statement saying the Sussexes have made personal decision to keep plans surrounding the birth of their baby private. The statement said,

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.

When will we see the first photo of Baby Sussex?

We have no idea when we’ll even learn of Baby Sussex’s arrival, where Markle will give birth, or what her birth plan might be and from the sound of it, we may never know. However, we might see the first photo of the baby on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s newly minted Instagram –@sussexroyal.

Inside Baby Sussex’s nursery

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry might want to keep the details around Baby Sussex’s birth private, but we do have some insider info about the baby’s nursery. Markle used a mood board to help her get the perfect tone and feel for Baby Sussex’s nursery. Royal insider Katie Nicholl told Vanity Fair, “Don’t expect to see any baby pink or baby blue. Apparently, it’s going to be a monochrome palette—whites and grays, I’m told, will be the color theme for baby Sussex’s nursery.” The nursery will be painted with eco-friendly vegan paint that is eucalyptus-infused. From Markle’s fashion choices we know that she loves color as well –she and the prince may decide to add bold pops of color to the room like rugs and pillows once the little one is born.

Prince Harry also added some special touches of his own. As a technology nerd, the prince has outfitted the nursery with, “top-of-the-line cameras, security windows, and a state-of-the-art stereo system.”

When is Meghan Markle’s due date?

When Meghan Markle and Prince Harry announced they were expecting, the Palace only said that Baby Sussex would arrive in Spring 2019. However, in Jan. 2019 the duchess revealed her due date will be in late April or early May. At this point, it means the little royal will arrive any day now.
