Meghan Markle to ‘follow royal tradition and give birth at the Lindo Wing' like Kate Middleton and Diana
MEGHAN Markle has decided to “follow royal tradition” and give birth at the Lindo Wing just like Kate Middleton and Diana, reports claim.
There has been speculation that the Duchess may have been considering a US-owned hospital like The Portland, in London, or one closer to their new home in Windsor.
But the Evening Standard reported that Meghan and Prince Harry have decided that the luxury Lindo wing of London's St Mary's hospital is the “superior choice”.
A royal source told the paper: “Having weighed up the options, and in acknowledgement of its place in royal tradition, they consider it the superior choice.”
With its gourmet menu, luxury toiletries and personalised care, the Lindo Wing is the first choice for royals and celebrities.
Prince Harry and Prince William were both born in the private wing.
And it seems as though the royal brothers are keen for their wives to get the same high-quality treatment as their own mum.
Kate gave birth to Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis in the private wing.
If your private health insurance does not cover maternity costs, the Lindo wing offers packages for overnight care.
For a standard room, a one-night package for normal delivery costs £5,900, and a caesarean section costs £7,435.
With Meghan and Harry's baby expected to arrive next month anticipation is building as to whether she will have a boy or a girl.
And royal watchers are now speculating whether the couple are expecting a girl after bookies have slashed the odds on Prince Harry and Meghan welcoming a daughter.
Betfair has revealed that the odds on the Duke and Duchess of Sussex having a girl have been slashed from 10/11 to 1/2.
Betfair spokesperson Katie Baylis told Hello!: "Following a significant bet this afternoon (Tuesday) we've slashed the odds of the royal baby being a girl from 10/11 to 1/2 , with a boy now out to 6/4.
“This bet is one of the biggest we've seen on the royal baby markets this year so could be a big clue that we will have a new Princess in the coming weeks."
Pregnant Meg previously sparked rumours that she is expecting a girl following her lavish baby shower in New York last month.
A video shared on social media which showed the inside of the shower revealed an almost entirely pink colour scheme prompting fans to believe a princess is on the way.
And it seems that the mum-to-be would be delighted to welcome a girl after she reportedly told psychic Richard Winn whom she is thought to have had $500 readings with in LA before meeting Prince Harry.
Richard exclusively revealed to the The Sun on Sunday that Meghan is hoping for a girl.
Thankfully we won’t have long to ponder as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s baby is expected in April.
While many have ventured a guess at the baby’s gender it is thought that Meghan and Prince Harry will wait until after the baby is born before finding out the sex, as most royals have done.
In March 2019, it was revealed that Meghan and Harry have opted for a gender-neutral grey paint for their baby nursery at their new home of Frogmore Cottage.
Meghan, 37, is also installing childproof windows and a £50,000 eco boiler as part of the £3million renovations to the Grade II listed property in the Queen's Windsor estate, a source told Fabulous Digital.
She has enlisted the help of top design director Vicky Charles – who's responsible for the pristine interiors at fashionable members club Soho Farmhouse, where the mum-to-be held her three-day hen do.
Meghan’s thought to have opted for a monochrome palette of whites and greys.
But it’s not just the décor which will be achingly on-trend, as she's also keen to make sure no animals were harmed in the making of the royal baby's nursery.
In other royal baby news a website generator has ‘accurately’ predicted what Meghan and Harry’s firstborn will look like.
And we reveal the bonkers royal birthing rules that Meghan may have to follow like her sister-in-law Kate.
