Buckingham Palace has confirmed Meghan Markle has gone into labour…


The Duchess of Sussex, who announced her pregnancy in October 2018, went into labour in the early hours of this morning, Buckingham Palace has confirmed.

Their statement said, “The Duke of Sussex was by her side” at the time and that “an announcement will be made soon”.

Update: Baby Sussex has been born! 

Baby Sussex

Whether a boy or a girl, Baby Sussex will be seventh in line to the throne of England; coming next-in-line after his/her dad Prince Harry, and before the Queen’s second son Prince Andrew.

What’s more, it is unlikely they will have the title of ‘prince’ or ‘princess’.

The Queen confirmed in 2012 that all of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s children will be called prince or princess, but the same announcement has not been made for Harry’s children. Instead, Meghan and Harry’s baby will likely be given the title of Earl (if a boy) or Lady (if a girl).

More information as we have it.
