Meghan Markle, 37, was originally thought to be planning to give birth in Windsor at Frimley Park Hospital, as the hospital will be close to their new home Frogmore Cottage. But it has now emerged the Duchess of Sussex could actually welcome her first child with Prince Harry at the Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital, following the tradition of royal women before her. Sister-in-law Kate Middleton, 37, welcomed all three of her children; Prince George, five, Princess Charlotte, three, and Prince Louis, nine months, at the Lindo Wing. The Telegraph have reported Meghan may have made a u-turn on her decision, after originally wanting her birth to be near her new country home.

A source at the maternity unit told the publication staff at the Lindo Wing have been asked not to take holiday in April.
“Staff at the Lindo Wing have been asked not to take holiday in April,” the source said.
"Everyone thinks it's got something to do with the royal baby but no one is confirming anything."
Meghan confirmed her due date to a well-wisher recently, when royal fan Kim Thompson asked how she was during the couple’s visit to Birkenhead in January.
Kim said: “She said she is six months pregnant and due at the end of April, beginning of May.”
The £6,000-per-night Lindo Wing offers a “five star” birthing experience with mothers accommodated in private rooms with en-suite bathrooms.
