With Meghan Markle‘s due date quickly approaching, royal fans can’t help but wonder where she will give birth. While many believe she’ll follow in her sister-in-law Kate Middleton‘s footsteps and welcome her baby at St. Mary’s Hospital in London, a source recently told Us Weekly that Meghan will “likely” go to a local wellness center to deliver her child.
With Meghan expected to give birth in late April, Harry has been making sure she has everything she needs to feel comfortable. “He’s decreased a lot of his work to be there for his wife,” another source recently explained. “Like any new mom-to-be, [Meghan]’s feeling somewhat nervous as the due date approaches, but Harry is there by her side.”
According to royal spokesperson Dickie Arbiter, Harry will also be taking paternity leave. “It’s a modern thing. Prince William did it for his children and Harry’s going to do it for his, when his child is born. I mean, the older generation didn’t do it. The older generation just got on with it,” he said. “It’s a new thing. People do it, William did it and Harry is going to do it. [The length] depends on him. I would have thought no more than about two or three weeks.”
With all of the parenting books that Meghan and Harry are reading, they’re sure to be great parents to Baby Sussex. “They started reading up on this as soon as they found out they were expecting,” a royal insider previously told Closer Weekly about the parents-to-be. “They want to do everything right.”
As much as we’re sure Meghan and Harry are anxiously awaiting their bundle of joy, the world is waiting on the edge of their seat for the big arrival!
