The Swedish royals have published privately taken photos of parents and baby from the hospital. Tbh most of them didn't offer that good a view of the newborns, but better pictures followed within days after on social media.

Is there a possibility Meghan might want to give birth at home? That would explain why no permits have been issued for the Lindo wing so far.

What are the rules in the UK? In some countries an elderly primipara will not be allowed to have a home birth.

I would have doubts about that. The fact of matter is, she's over 35 having her first child. That in itself puts her in high risk. There are just certain things that's not available at home or an ambulance compared to a hospital in case things go wrong. So I can't see her doctors recommending it. And of course, Meghan certainly would understand how fast a easy pregnancy and birth can turn into life and death for the mother given what Serena went through.

This. Meghan is 37 and I cannot see any doctors signing off on her having a home birth. She's classed as high risk due to her maternal age. And since this is her first child, doctors are even more cautious.

Her age is no limitation to her giving birth at home.
I am 38, now pregnant with my third. All home-births so far (at 30 and 31 years) and the midwives have no problem with me giving birth at home again. My age is not a risk.

There is a difference when you've had two births without complications compared to Meghan's situation.

The Netherlands is a very different place compared to most other countries regarding giving birth at home. It's relatively common in the Netherlands and quite uncommon in most other countries.

Moreover, it seems the point several people are making is that giving birth for the FIRST time when over 35 is considered a (higher) risk - more so than doing so for a subsequent child.

So, I agree that it probably would be acceptable in the Netherlands (although even our princesses gave birth at a hospital!), it most likely isn't looked upon favorably in the UK.

We’re trying to patiently wait for some kind of official information on the preparations for welcoming baby Sussex. It has surprised me that no info hasn’t come out yet. Unless Harry and Meghan and Palace officials are trying to keep everything calm before the big day nears. There was tons of hoopla over the Cambridge baby preparations. I know the networks and royal reporters are anxious for some official news.

Yes, Harry and Meghan, give us a clue about what's happening! You're keeping us in suspense here!
Of course Omid isn't always accurate but I wouldn't be surprised at Meghan not wanting to pose on hospital steps hours after giving birth and the couple may well release the first photos of baby and themselves after they arrive home. Just hope we don't have to wait very long. And, with the news about the Permits etc I now don't think that Meghan will give birth at the Lindo Wing. I wonder about Portland St Hospital. Same situation?

I’m thinking we might get a Friday info dump. I’m sure they wanted to give people a couple of days to follow the Instagram account.

She might give birth at Lindo Wing, but there is no door appearance and the reporters aren’t allowed to gather at the entrance.

The latest On Heir (out a day or two ago) talks about this issue of where she will give birth etc. No one knows for sure of course. Just various possibilities tossed out for now.

I think they are leaning toward the private hospital in Windsor or possibly Lindo under radar...and no posing for the cameras before going on.

Unless they manage to sneak the baby out the back door, the press will be there. They will have photographers outside Lindo whether a press conference or not. Even if not the 'children of the future heir'. All of the queen's grandchildren got attention. Harry's child may be a great-grandchild but his first child will be even more of a draw because of the parents.

As for Windsor I find it highly unlikely. The plans for the birth would have been in place months ago. They wouldn't have known if Frogmore would be ready or not. We still don't know if it is. Basing a birthing plan around a home they may not be able to move into is unlikely. Its far more likely they plan to deliver in London. If Frogmore is ready, they can head after the birth or a day or two after release. If not, then they will just stay at Notts even longer. Being in London also allows the queen and other royals to visit new baby the first days.

Will have to wait and see but my bet is on Lindo. With limited appearance on the way out. And a proper photo released later.

Harry’s face has been on the front pages of papers all his life, and Meghan is quite used to publicity, even before her engagement. Barring a (G-d forbid) difficult birth or sickly baby, they’ll be there proudly smiling on the front steps. Suddenly turning shy is unlikely and would certainly do them no good. IMO

I still think they are keeping the details vague about the hospital because of a potential Markle spectacle in front of the Lindo Wing and a heightened security. The step presentation officially acknowledges a child of African American heritage is a legitimate lawful successor to the British throne. There are many that can't abide by that and there would be a concern for safety.

I don't think the Markles figure into it whatsoever. They may not win the "Family of the Year" award anywhere but I do believe they have the common sense to not just show up for the birth of Baby Sussex as they realize that there is no way in hell they'll even get close to H&M and baby due to high security.

Tom, Sr. isn't a fan of air travel. Tom, Jr. is in the process of being evicted from his domicile and probably frantically trying to find another place to rent on top of wedding plans. Samantha, with her MS just isn't going to find it easy to actually be there to provoke a problem. Besides she's probably all up into releasing her "book".

Just common sense here. I find it preposterous that over the back fence gossip and innuendo would incite fear into Harry and Meghan's hearts because of what some people may think. It just doesn't wash with me and they'll do what they want to do as far as Baby Sussex's arrival because its solely how they want to do things.

Lets get back to just discussing the impending birth and leave the tabloid fodder out of it, please?

I honestly think now that it will not be Lindo and that they will indeed be having a completely private birth. They will post a photo on their IG, but that is it. I know tradition says they will do the photocall, but this may be an area where they finally actually buck tradition (despite the breathless media reports otherwise, they stick fairly firmly to royal family ways otherwise).

I hope I am wrong because I think that is the wrong approach from a public relations/media management/ect standpoint, but the utter lack of press information or briefing points to this for me.

One way they could curb things a little bit is by releasing the photo before they leave. Or somehow manages to get in, have the baby, and leave without the press finding out. Latter is quite risky considering they'll be in there for awhile.

I don't think the Palace would be able to stop photographers from just showing up and taking photos. Nor do I think they can pressure papers not to publish them over privacy claim since it's now been common practice for the royal births to be photographed leaving the hospital. It'll be interesting to see how they handle it if they don't stick to common practice.

German tabloid "Bunte" claims, Meghan will have a ceasarian cut and will give birth near Frogmore in a little hospital.

So, unlike Kate Meghan will not be able to greet the wellwishers.
