George VI and the Queen Mum. They would have been married 96 years April 26. George and Mary are three times great-grandparents.

Thank you Countessmeout.

I think the 26 may happen if she's over due. Going back to what others have said in this thread earlier today, if royal women usually go on maternity leave 1 month before their due date, it would mean next week or the following week (April 15 - April 26) so it's within the time frame.

We're all just guessing at this point, and she will probably go into labor in the middle of the night and we'll wake up to the news. That would be my luck.

At this point there is only one person that actually knows what's what when it comes to the birth date and he/she isn't even telling Meghan and Harry. Gotta know that the grand entrance into this world will be a surprise for us all.

I'm hoping Baby Sussex is born on the Queen's birthday.

Ha...lol. Yes. Mom and dad and grandma may be ready for baby to be here, but baby may be like "it's too nice and warm and a quiet in here, I think I'll say an extra 2 weeks".

Poor Meghan and many a pregnant moms who have gone over their due date. (Not saying Meghan is past her due date, only if it happens to her.)

Please note that posts (and subsequent responses) suggesting that the Duchess of Sussex has already given birth are ridiculous and speculative and have therefore been deleted.

As a Labor & Delivery nurse I am not particularly fond of home births or birthing Center births. However I do respect each woman's right to choose. Meghan can get away with a home birth because:

1. She has the best health care team at her disposal.
2. It seems the only health risk she has is her age.
3. There are helicopters and air ambulances at her disposal should anything go wrong or take a turn for the worse.

So for those reasons I wouldn't call her decision negligent or risky.

For my first, I was really hoping that I'd deliver on St. Patrick's Day (my due date) as it made a difference between if he was named Patrick Robert or Robert Patrick. He was to be named after his grandfathers. We were hit with a blizzard on that St. Pat's Day so I told the kid to wait a week. He did. Born the 24th. That week between the dates seemed to take forever.

Those that know my son since childhood still sometimes call him by the double barrel Robbie Pat. My mom started that.

Great trivia!

One thing though: William was christened on the very same day Meghan turned one. She was born Aug. 4, 1981; he was born (June 21) and christened (Aug. 4) in 1982.

It was just a passing-by-comment, nothing much to read into, but I read that the announcement will be posted on their Instagram account first since it's just taken off recently which is why I mentioned the account - otherwise I'd have said an official announcement from Buckingham Palace.

I will say, the BRF having a helicopter is probably why I would think there is a possibility of home birth. Iím sure sheíll be called extravagant if she needs it or if itís speculated as available, but it is what it is with the BRF.

Unless the helicopter is sitting on the grass at Frogmore waiting to be used if needed, helicopter isn't going to help any quicker.

There are hospitals only minutes away from Frogmore. BMI The Princess Margaret is about five minutes.

In the UK full term is between the 38th and 42nd week after the first day of the last normal menstrual period. My comment was intended to be simply that 36 weeks is a bit on the early side not to start a debate on the definition of full term.

The baby will come when itís ready. In my experience as a midwife for 15 years (although not recently) babies are not very good at counting weeks

So, the same counting system as here. Yes, babies a notoriously bad at counting.

It's possible she'll have give birth at home but with medical equipment present. In several Canadian provinces, midwives (trained medical professionals, not lay midwives) offer homebirth to women who've had normal pregnancies and regular prenatal care, and most provinces require a second attendant midwife or midwifery student to be present at the birth (I believe only 1 province doesn't legislate a second attendant). They bring medical equipment and medication to the home:
"The Colleges of Midwives in regulated provinces issue a list of essential equipment, which includes fetal Dopplers, stethoscopes, blood pressure cuffs, oxygen tanks, bags and masks for resuscitation, drugs to stop hemorrhaging, IV bags to treat bleeding, and medication should stitches be required."

This is so exciting. So the initiative #GlobalSussexBabyShower is still going strong. Harry and Meghan have acknowledged the good the online baby shower generated. Today, they posted on their Instagram the impact in one week with some of the charities.

Hello,
I am new here and wondering if anybody else thinks that Meghan is going to have a caeserean like many many actresses and especially women in the US choose to do.
After reading all that fuss about mentioning that the birth will not be mentioned immediatley... it seemed even clearer to me that the reason is a little help from a surgeon...
Home birth is a good option especially when being so priveliged and help is near in case....
I really do NOT understand why hiding, why not share the joy after birth like any other woman does?
������
We will have to await it��
