Prince Harry and Meghan Markel seem totally ready to welcome the newest addition to the royal family. It was revealed to the public in a very non-traditional way.
Usually, the news of the birth to the royal family is announced by the royal palace and just after the birth the baby and the mother poses for pictures. The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton also participated in the photo shoot ritual for all three of her children’s birth.
Meghan apparently will not follow this practice as she reportedly feels “sorry ” for the Royals for following this practice. She is keeping the matter of her child’s birth very private. She is reportedly going to give a home birth at the Frogmore Cottage owned by Harry and Markle which was just recently renovated. Although it is a home birth they have made full preparation to move Meghan to the hospital in case she needs hospitalization.
Meghan is due for the birth reportedly in the last of the month April or the beginning of May. So the date isn’t very far.
This is the first baby of the royal couple and they are planning a tour to Africa with the royal baby soon. According to The Sunday Times newspaper, the trip is two weeks long and they are planning to do it when the new baby turns about six months old. It is very likely that the tour will happen in the fall of 2019 and the focus of this year is subjects like youth empowerment, education, and conservation.
It is not clear which countries the couple will visit along with the new baby. Meghan and Harry already visited North Africa in February on an official engagement. They toured the beautiful country of Morocco during the trip.
The Sunday Times newspaper also quoted a royal source that stated “They hope to take the baby with them but will make a decision nearer the time. Potentially, Meghan and the baby could do some, if not all, of the trip.”
