The couple today announced that they are to keep the details about the arrangements for the birth of their baby private.

Meghan Markle gave fans more insight about her pregnancy during her first joint engagement of the year with Prince Harry telling some her due date is in late April or early May.

Reports this week said Meghan is planning a midwife-led home birth at Frogmore Cottage.

"We can only assume that Harry and Meghan don't want to look out of their window and see cars coming and going and members of staff walking into the club". With a keen interest in design and interior, the Duchess will no doubt have had a lot of involvement in the décor of their new home and will be using her time putting the finishing touches to the baby's nursery.

But while we're used to Kate and William following the tradition the pressure for Harry and Meghan is a lot less - meaning they'll be able to keep it low key - after all, Harry's only sixth in line for the throne!

It's a historic image that will instantly be beamed around the world; the first picture of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and their newborn baby.

CBS This Morning co-host - and Winfrey's good friend - Gayle King, who attended Meghan's baby shower in February, added that the Duchess of Sussex "doesn't seem to buy into" rumours or gossip about herself.

"It's opportunity for them to take ownership of their child's privacy". Their account broke a world record, gaining one million followers in less than six hours.

"They're calling the shots". "For me, it's a tricky one, because I'm not part of any of that".

In a statement released by Buckingham Palace, there was also no confirmation about which hospital the couple have chosen to have their baby in. As there's no expectation for the child to have a full-time royal role, he or she is instead expected to carve out their own career.

Now it has been revealed the former actress wants to shake up her birthing method as well.

Meghan's arrival in the royal family was greeted with optimism that her star power and modern culture savvy would help make the institution relevant in the era of social media and celebrity mania.
