It will take place within the first few days of the new royal baby's birth, and the parents will then release those pictures to the public. The couple have said they will let everyone know about the newest member of their family once they are safely here but no details will be released about where the baby is due to make their debut ahead of the birth.

They say they are grateful for the goodwill messages they have received from around the world.

The statement continues, "Their Royal Highnesses have taken a personal decision to keep the plans around the arrival of their baby private".

The 37-year-old mum-to-be has kept herself out of the limelight while she and Harry settle into their new Windsor home, Frogmore Cottage. Additionally, unlike Prince William and Kate Middleton, who posed for photos outside St. Mary's Hospital following the arrival of their three children, Meghan and Harry will have a photo op with their newborn on the grounds of Windsor Castle when they are ready.

Britain's Mail on Sunday reported this week that a female obstetrician would deliver the Duchess' baby.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: "It seems like just about everyone is confident Harry and Meghan will have a girl, and plenty of royal baby punters think the Duke of Sussex will name his first born after his mother". Some have claimed this as preferential treatment towards the other Duchess in the Royal Family, Kate Middleton.

That theory, put forward in 1915, was meant to explain the laws of gravity and their relation to other natural forces. The black holes are expected to appear "as a tiny shadow backlit by the glow of radio energy at the galactic center".

"Harry & Meghan are establishing their intent to keep their baby's life as private as possible from day one".

So much so that the comment section of the Daily Mail article about the birthing plan has been plagued by words like "pricks", "vanity", and maybe most importantly, "vegan".

The royal household's gynaecologists Alan Farthing and Guy Thorpe-Beeston, who specialise in high-risk childbirth, were present at the births of all three of William and Kate's children but will only play a "minor role" in the delivery of Meghan's first baby (according to royal protocol, the doctors can not be excluded from the process entirely and will step in if anything goes wrong).

The media mogul appeared on CBS This Morning and said she feels Markle has been "portrayed unfairly" in the media.

Meghan also wore Diana's jewelry during her first appearance with Prince Harry following the announcement that she and Harry are expecting a baby, so odds are good that she will also be incorporated into the birth announcement in some way.
