The Duchess of Sussex's due date was believed to be at the end of April. Forgoing the start of May, she has almost come a week past it. The royal pair had announced the final days of her pregnancy to be kept private. They are left secluded at their new Windsor home, the Frogmore Cottage where a female-led team is on standby. However, Meghan's committed wish to give birth naturally is now threatened.

The clock is ticking

With no sign of Sussex baby's arrival, Meghan faces the possibility of induced labor. If nature doesn't take its course in the next 48 hours, it is increasingly likely she will be transferred to Frimley Park Hospital in Surrey.

Obstetrician, Clive Spence-Jones told Daily Mail UK:

A recent study found that women over 36 should consider induction around their due date, as they are at higher risk.

He further warned that upon induction, either physical manipulation or drugs to trigger contractions. The Duchess will lose her shot of home birth as it is against national guidelines.

Public's reaction

People are getting desperate and they are actively opinionated about it. Social media users expressed how Meghan should have known better.
