Where Is Meghan Markle Giving Birth? (Hint: She May Follow in K. Middy's Footsteps After All)

Die-hard royal fanatics are wondering if Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, will choose to have her baby in the same place where sister-in-law Kate Middleton (plus every major royal since Princess Anne) gave birth: the famously private and super-swanky Lindo wing of St. Mary’s Hospital in London.

Or perhaps Meghan will opt for a countryside hospital with more privacy (and closer to Frogmore Cottage, her new home with Harry), Frimley Park Hospital in Surrey County.

Well, it’s looking more and more like the duchess will choose to give birth in the London hospital. For starters, the family’s move to Frogmore has been delayed by a month due to ongoing renovations. Second, new reports (taken with a grain of salt, with all of these “unnamed sources”) have surfaced, claiming the hospital staff of the $8,000-per-night Lindo wing have been asked NOT to go on vacation during April. (Dun-dun-dun.)

Conflicting reports claimed that Markle, 37, and Prince Harry, 34, who are expecting their first child this spring (most likely at the end of April), will want to have the baby closer to their new home of Frogmore Cottage in Berkshire, England.

According to The Daily Mail, Markle was thinking of having Baby Sussex at Frimley Park Hospital (which is still a 30-minute drive away from their new home, but beats the central London traffic any day). It also happens to be the same hospital where Prince Harry’s aunt, Sophie, the Countess of Wessex, had her two children.

However, with the new rumors about the Lindo wing staff not being able to make any plans in case Baby Sussex arrives in April, it seems Markle may follow in Kate and Diana’s footsteps after all.

We guess it comes down to whether the Sussexes want a city or countryside birth. (We know which we’d choose…the one closest to home.)
