The Duke and Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will soon be beaming with joy and pride as the royal baby aka Baby Sussex is set to arrive any time in the upcoming weeks. The parents-to-be have begun prepping for the next phase of life and have also moved into their own home -- Frogmore Cottage. Meghan Markle, too, has withdrawn from royal and public engagements but Prince Harry still continues to meet various organisations and committees. 

As the royal family preps for the little munchkin's arrival, we will let you in on what will happen after the birth of the royal baby. Have you ever wondered what goes on behind the scene, what royal protocol is in place and does the couple have a birthing plan in place? Read on to know Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's plan while we await the good news: 

What is Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's birth plan?

There have been incessant reports that Meghan Markle will use the help of a doula (a non-medical support person) for her delivery. There, however, have also been claims that she would pursue a natural birth. According the The Express, the Duchess of Sussex has been practicing natural birthing methods, including yoga and breathing to help with a natural birth. If Meghan does use the aid of a doula, it will be another royal tradition off the list. 

Where will Meghan Markle deliver? Hospital or Palace?

Kate Middleton and Prince Harry's mother Diana chose the Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital in central London to give birth to their loved ones. However, reports suggest that Meghan has chosen The Mulberry Birth Centre at Frimley Park hospital in Surrey since it is closer to their new home Frogmore Cottage.

 

How will Meghan get to the hospital?

As per tradition, the royal couple will be given police escort and they will travel by car to the hospital. It is most likely that Prince Harry will accompany his wife.  

Who will be the first to know about Baby Sussex? 

As per Royal protocol, Queen Elizabeth will have to be notified about the child's birth. Following which an official statement will be made at the Buckingham Palace for the public. This means that Meghan Markle will have to wait to tell her mother Doria Ragland until the Queen has been notified about the birth and the gender of the child. It is repored that Prince Harry will convey the news over an encrypted phone call. 

When will you and I know about Baby Sussex? 

The media along with the rest of the world will know about the safe arrival of the child a few hours after the birth. The official statement at Buckingham palace will be read which includes the gender, time of birth and mother and child's health. However, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex made their Instagram debut a few days ago suggesting that the royal baby's first pictures may be shared on social media. 

Will Baby Sussex be a Prince or Princess?

 It is unlikely Harry and Meghan’s firstborn will be given the title of Prince or Princess because of current royal protocol, which states that only those in direct line to the throne will have a royal title. It’s more likely the baby will be an Earl if he’s a boy, or a Lady if they have a girl. We’ll find out the baby’s exact title a few days after the birth. 

Will there be a traditional photo of the royal couple and baby outside the hospital?

Previous appearances of Kate Middleton posing outside the steps of St Mary's Hospital have often come under fire. Her pictures with the baby with a full face of makeup shortly after giving birth received support from new mums concerned she had been forced to make herself presentable too quickly or rather in the first 24 hours of motherhood. Well, we wonder if Meghan and Prince Harry will break this royal protocol.
