According to sources, The Queen has paid a personal visit to the heavily pregnant Duchess of Sussex ahead of the imminent birth of her’s and Harry’s first child in their new home at Frogmore Cottage.
This is the Queen’s first time visiting the couple at their new home in Frogmore Cottage, and the royal source had this to say:
“Her Majesty wanted to formally welcome the Sussexes to their new home so she was their first visitor. After all, they’ve practically moved into her back garden. She visited with other family members and Harry and Meghan were delighted to show them round.”
It is only natural that The Queen would want to see her ahead of the birth; despite all of the unsubstantiated rumours that she and Meghan don’t see eye to eye so to speak, The Queen will be very excited to see the birth of another grandchild, especially as it will be Harry’s first child.
Meghan and Harry have said that they will be keeping the birth more under wraps than previous royal births, and so this has caused mad speculation about how the couple will notify the world that the baby has been born – if they do at all.
The editor-in-chief at Woman’s Day, OK! and NW, Fiona Connolly said to The Express:
“The Palace has told us they will release a statement when Meghan goes into labour and then they will spend an undisclosed amount of family time alone. From then it could be hours or several days before they will have one photographer and one videographer capturing the big reveal”.
Connolly also suggested that the first image of the baby may be released via Instagram. Personally, if I were to guess I would imagine that the pair will announce on Instagram, due to the fact that they are branding themselves more akin to certain contemporary celebrity couples of late, and their new Instagram page would be the perfect platform to give off the contemporary edge; but, this would also allow them to remain privately in the confines of their own home, something which the couple is very keen to do.
