Meghan Markle pregnant: Duchess 'wants to have Harry's baby in birthing pool'

Harry and Meghan to keep birth of their baby private

Britain's Prince Harry and his wife Meghan want to keep the arrival of their baby later this month "private", Buckingham Palace said in a statement on Thursday. Beginning the next day, on 20 March, Meghan is known to have gone on her maternity leave, which means that almost a month had passed before the Palace statement arrived.

"A child that feels heard feels understood", she tells Yahoo UK's 'The Royal Box'. Check out the importance of having a birth plan - and knowing when to throw it away and what to do when you don't want your in-laws to visit after you give birth.

Earlier this week, Meghan, 37, and Harry, 34, announced their intention to keep the birth of their first child private.

The Sun's former royal editor Duncan Larcombe says the decision is "just another example of Harry's real bitterness at the media general, which I think goes back to the death of his mother, but particularly it goes back to when his relationship with Meghan was made public".

This would contrast with the births of the three children of his brother Prince William and his wife Kate, immediately after which the babies were shown off by the couple in front of the world's media.

Mum-to-be Meghan is expecting to give birth to her first baby with Prince Harry over the next few weeks.

William and Kate posed for cameras on the same day as Prince Louis' arrival.

It's also worth remembering Harry has expressed his frustration towards the press on many occasions - including their attitudes towards Meghan's racial background. She was adamant that she wanted her own people. Both royals appeared for a photo call outside the Lindo Wing - the private maternity ward at St. Mary's hospital in west London - shortly after the delivery of their children.

Fans may have to wait until the baby's christening for the first live look at the little royal.

Royal Correspondent Emily Andrews reported that the mum-to-be wants a more private, normal birth and to bond with her baby without the pressure of looking picture ideal. Follow Yahoo Lifestyle on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

This is a contrast to the media photocalls we have seen with prominent members of the Royal Family.
