Buckingham Palace has officially revealed that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will keep the birth of their baby private.

It is understood that there will not be a photo show outside the hospital like Prince William and Kate.

It is more likely that photographs of Meghan and Harry’s baby will be released a few days after the birth.

“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are very grateful for the goodwill they have received from people throughout the United Kingdom and around the world as they prepare to welcome their baby,” a statement from the palace read.

“Their Royal Highnesses have taken a personal decision to keep the plans around the arrival of their baby private. The Duke and Duchess look forward to sharing the exciting news with everyone once they have had an opportunity to celebrate privately as a new family.”

The news has received a mixed reaction from the public, with many royal fans pleased with the couple’s decision to enjoy private time with their newborn, before announcing the birth.

Good on them! I think they are making wise choices, don’t you?

  • How lovely to announce it in Australia. And now the Prince is here and just gorgeous


  • They had their little boy today. YAY and congrats to them.


  • They have to do what is right for them, that is fair enough.


  • As exciting as it is that a new baby will be born I think they deserve the respect from the media and let them enjoy their new baby in private before announcing it


  • Good on them, but good luck. Being royal means your privacy is compromised


  • Unfortunately, when you are royalty, everything is public. Meghan needs to get used to this.


  • We didn’t tell anybody until days after the birth. I don’t understand why people share the news early. Good on them.


  • I love this. And I love that they’ve pre-empted it all by letting everyone know. Leave them in peace until they’re ready to share.


  • Good on them for making that choice.
    I guess being 5/6 in line to the throne means Harry doesn’t have to put his baby on show. I’m sure Megan will be pleased to get time as a family first, especially as a first time mum.
    ( I wish I had that time back)


  • That’s a wonderful choice. Removing extra pressure and focussing on their growing family. Every second will be precious and treasured.


  • Good on them, a healthy decision.


  • I hope Kate has a giant photo shoot outside the hospital again. I love a good baby photo!!


  • To each their own I say


  • I’m glad they’ve decided to keep things private until they are ready to share the birth of their child.


  • good on them for making that decision BUT I think it is less to do with privacy and more to do with trying to build up anticipation and “publicity” for them, I think Meghan is more worried about fame than much else,I hope I am wrong but I don’t get a good feeling about her
