With speculation growing by the day as to how the birth of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s first child is going to be announced, royal experts are speculating that the Queen will play a big part in the announcement.

With the baby due any day now, Meghan and Harry are sitting tight in their new Windsor home, Frogmore Cottage. And while the royal couple have elected to keep details surrounding the birth private until they feel ready to share them with the public, it is believed the Queen is likely to be the first person to be told when the baby is born.
“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are very grateful for the goodwill they have received from people throughout the United Kingdom and around the world as they prepare to welcome their baby,” a recent statement on Harry and Meghan’s Instagram page read.
“Their Royal Highnesses have taken a personal decision to keep the plans around the arrival of their baby private.
“The Duke and Duchess look forward to sharing the exciting news with everyone once they have had an opportunity to celebrate privately as a new family."
With the couple keen to keep the birth details private, it is unlikely that Meghan will pose outside the hospital after the birth – in fact, many believe the first picture of the baby will appear on the couple’s Instagram account.

However, royal tradition states that the monarch has to be the first person to be informed about the royal birth.
Therefore, as with Kate and William’s children, it is likely that the baby’s birth will be revealed by the Royal Family’s official Twitter account.
