Breaking royal tradition

In a break with long-time royal tradition, Meghan will not give birth in the Lindo Wing, at St. Mary’s Hospital, Paddington, which has been used by several other royal mothers like Princess Diana and Kate Middleton.

Fans were pretty sure that Meghan will give birth to her baby in the Lindo Wing.

According to the information obtained by The Sun, the Duchess of Sussex will skip the long-time royal tradition and give birth to her baby in a maternity unit near their home in Windsor.

As the baby will not be a direct heir to the throne, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are said to believe they should not have to pose for the media with the child and want the birth to be as private as possible.

A brief announcement is expected shortly after the birth of baby Sussex with a picture released later.

Her team of doctors

The 37-year-old has declined help from the Queen’s doctors. Meghan is insisting she doesn’t want them to oversee the birth of her first child.

She decided not to use the delivery team that has been present for the birth of all three children of Prince William and Kate Middleton.

In a report by The Mail, Meghan appointed her own delivery team, which is led by an unnamed female doctor.

Alan Farthing and Guy Thorpe-Beeston, the royal household gynecologists are among the best doctor's in the world, but neither has been given the leading role in Meghan’s case.

However, the Queen’s doctors cannot be excluded completely in keeping with protocol. There will be some role for them, should something go wrong the Queen’s doctors would step in and take over.

Meetings to discuss the birth of Prince Harry and Meghan's child will be held following the arrival of the baby expected next month.

Other royals mothers to have given birth under the care of Royal Household gynecologists include Princess Diana and Princess Anne.
