The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Lady Jane Fellowes, Lady Sarah McCorquodale, and Earl Spencer have been informed and are delighted with the news,” Buckingham Palace said. “The Duchess’s mother, Doria Ragland, who is overjoyed by the arrival of her first grandchild, is with Their Royal Highnesses at Frogmore Cottage.”
Meghan went into labor in her 41st week of pregnancy, one week past her due date. She was last seen in public in March and waited out her pregnancy at home at Frogmore Cottage with her mother, Doria Ragland, and Prince Harry.
Harry, 34, and Meghan, 37, will share more details about the baby’s name “in due course,” according to Buckingham Palace.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are due any day now that is if they have not already welcomed baby Sussex. Fans of the royal family and keen observers are placing bets on multiple possibilities like the gender of the child, the name of the child and who would be the royal baby’s godparents. And as per reports, the high-profile and longtime friends of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are in the running to bag the tag of godparents.
The baby’s sex will be a surprise for the couple, who have chosen not to find out what they were having.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced they were having a baby on October 15, 2018 – five months after they wed and following weeks of speculation.
According to UK bookies Ladbrokes, the front runners are Harry’s longtime pal Charlie Van Straubenzee (1/8 odds) and Meghan’s close friend Jessica Mulroney (1/3 odds), reported who.com. If Charlie is chosen to be the godparent to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s first child it won’t come as a surprise to many since they’ve known each other for over a decade.
