- byNadia El
Kensington Palace has released a rare statement concerning Prince Harry and Meghan Markle following rumours in the press that the royal couple are planning to raise their first baby as gender fluid.
Recently, an anonymous source reported to Vanity Fair that Meghan, 27 "won't impose stereotypes" on the Royal baby, due in April, telling guests at her recent baby shower in New York that she would raise their baby in a "fluid" way.
However, Kensington Palace has hit back at the claims, issuing a statement saying: "This story is totally false."
The initial report claimed to have quotes from a friend who attended the baby shower last week.
“She was talking openly about it,” said the source to the magazine.
“Meghan has been talking to some of her friends about the birth and how she and Harry plan to raise their baby. Her exact word was 'fluid'.
"She said they plan to raise their child with a fluid approach to gender and they won’t be imposing any stereotypes."
