Monday May 6, 2019


Prince Harry's wife Meghan went into labour early on Monday, Buckingham Palace announced.

"The Duchess went into labour in the early hours of this morning," it said in a statement, noting her husband the Duke of Sussex was by her side. 
The world now awaits the arrival of Meghan and Harry’s first child, which will be seventh in line to the throne.
Details of the new royal baby’s due date have been kept a closely guarded secret. However, the new Royal Baby was expected to arrive in late April or early May after Meghan went on maternity leave on March 18

The child will be the Queen’s eighth great-grandchild and Prince Charles’s fourth grandchild.
Sources have said the couple will remain tight-lipped, giving royal fans a tantalising wait for the first glimpse of the new royal baby.
