Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are very happy now a days because their baby is coming soon. May be Meghan Markle and Prince Harry moving away from modern royal baby traditions, but it’s for a relatable reason.
The royal couple recently announced details surrounding the birth of their first child, revealing that they “have taken a personal decision to keep the plans around the arrival of their baby private.”
“The Duke and Duchess look forward to sharing the exciting news with everyone once they have had an opportunity to celebrate privately as a new family,” according to a statement released by Buckingham Palace.
This means they’ll be breaking the tradition followed by Princess Diana and Kate Middleton, who both introduced their children to the world shortly after giving births by stepping outside the private Lindo Wing at St. Mary’s Hospital in London for a photo call.
“It is completely understandable,” royal author Ingrid Seward tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue. “The Lindo Wing has become too much of a circus.”
All three of Prince William and Princess Kate’s children were born in the same place as their dad – and Prince George, 5, Princess Charlotte, 3, and Prince Louis, who turns 1 this month, gave their first royal waves on the steps for a crowd of well-wishers and photographers.
Instead, they announced that Meghan and Harry will take part in a photo with their new son or daughter on the grounds of Windsor Castle in the days following the birth.
“People are delighted that Meghan is doing things differently,” says Seward. “She was under no pressure to do things the same.”
