Following The Queen? Meghan Markle’s Rumored Decision To Have Home Birth Sparks Big Concern On Social Media

It’s not a secret that Queen Elizabeth gave birth to all of her children in Buckingham Palace. Home births used to be an old tradition for the royal family and the monarch just simply followed the footsteps of other royal women who gave birth before her.
Princess Diana was the first who decided to opt for the hospital. She gave birth to both William and Harry at the private Lindo Wing and Duchess Kate did the same with her own three children.
But what option will Meghan Markle choose?
She might take the Queen’s example
It’s possible that the Duchess of Sussex will decide to change things up and return to the Queen's birth plan. Royal author Katie Nicholl once said that Meghan actually might favor home birth.
Her words sparked a heated discussion online with some people claiming that it’s not the best choice for the Duchess while others were saying that it’s her body and she can do whatever she wants with it.

PLZ don't publish or allow OPEN free speech. Which doctor allows a 37 years old first birth in renovated (may have new paint) home❓ Got 3 doctors as cousins; and only a spiritual healer's "concern", ahem - #MeghanMarkle's home birth 'plan' https://t.co/laEx2FcNJO— Jesus ❤️ Lara Marie, Easter Queen 💝 # Liverpool😘 (@BlackQueenLara) April 9, 2019
Oh c'mon @bbc5live - asking if it's "appropriate" for Meghan Markle to have a home birth? How is it any different for her than a regular person? It's her business where she gives birth. Her body, her choice. #5livebreakfast #royalbaby #homebirth— MrsG (@LittleRed_30) April 10, 2019
Just heard Meghan Markle described as ‘radical’ for giving birth at home. My mum, gone one year today god bless her, was so radical she did it three times. What a flipping anarchist she was.— GlennA (@GlennAirey) April 10, 2019
Now, as the due date is getting closer, same rumors have started floating again and insiders allegedly report that Meghan is, in fact, considering a home birth.
However, it’s a very big risk as the Duchess is having her first baby at 37 years old. Yet, it was said that the pregnant royal practices yoga every day and is in extremely good health.
But should we believe those claims?
