Will Prince Harry be in the room when Meghan Markle gives birth to the royal baby?

New mum Meghan Markle will have to follow some unusual birthing rules in order to adhere to tradition. But will her man be by her side? 

Will Prince Harry be in the room while Meghan Markle gives birth to the royal baby?

Harry is set to welcome his first baby into the world and when asked about it he can hardly contain his excitement.

But royal tradition has it that dads are banned from the birthing room.

Giving birth is considered a female-only event and fathers are not allowed in the delivery room.

However, this rule is believed to have been relaxed after the birth of Prince Charles.

William was by Kate's side as she gave birth to their children.

Where will the baby be born?

Home births are preferred in the Royal Family and the Queen had all her children at Buckingham Palace.

Kate chosen to have all three of her children at London’s St Mary’s Hospital in the private Lindo Wing where Princess Diana had Harry and William.

Meghan is said to be eyeing up the maternity unit at the NHS-run hospital as it could be closer to their new Windsor pad.

Frimley Park may be a more easily accessible option.

But it's worlds apart from the five-star birthing experience Kate had.

Meanwhile, the large labour ward at Frimley Park, which doesn't offer private care for maternity patients, is certainly more on the basic side.

When is the baby expected?

February at 7/4 is Betway's favourite to be the month Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's first baby is born.

Recent glimpses of the Duchess of Sussex's baby bump has left the leading online bookmaker installing next month as the favourite in their betting on the due date.

The shortest month of the year heads the betting from March at 9/4, with April a 5/2 chance.
