How Meghan’s Home Birth Plans Were Shattered
She was rushed to hospital at the last minute.
Meghan Markle’s plans to give birth to baby Sussex at home went out the window when she was rushed to hospital at the eleventh hour.
According to the Daily Mail she was accompanied by Harry, their security team and a police escort.
This follows months of reports that Meghan was planning to deliver her child at Frogmore Cottage - her new home on the Windsor Estate with hubby Harry.
The yet-unnamed baby boy, who was a week overdue, is believed to have been born in the exclusive Portland Hospital.
The London hospital offers 5-star hotel service, where patients can sip vintage champagne and order oysters and foie gras.
The move was apparently so secret, even senior royals were not made immediately aware when Meghan went into labour.
The London hospital - where even a ‘basic’ delivery suite costs upward of £15,000 (AUD$28,000) a night - is also where Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie were delivered.
Within hours of the birth, which happened at 5:26am local time, Meghan and Harry were back home at Frogmore Cottage with their new son.
Breaking with tradition, a home birth is also something Kate Middleton had considered for the birth of her third child, Prince Louis.
Instead, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge faced a mass photo call in the private Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington mere hours after all three of their children were born.
The official Sussex Royal Instagram account shared the news in the early hours of the morning, announcing the birth of a boy weighing seven pounds and three ounces (3.2 kilograms).
