Considering they want to keep the news private, the couple may just choose to share the baby's news on their newly launched Instagram account.

Or rather, they announced that they weren't going to announce their birthing plan because they wanted the birth of their first child to be a private affair away from flashing lights, shouty paps, and fans who bring their royal memorabilia everywhere.

"Windsor is a very special place for Their Royal Highnesses and they are grateful that their official residence will be on the estate", a statement from the couple's office said.

In the past, the public was officially alerted when a member of the Royal Family was admitted to hospital to give birth.

Larcombe predicts that Meghan and Harry's baby will be kept out of the public eye, like the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's three children.

While a home birth would be in keeping with royal tradition, it would break with the more recent trend of royals giving birth at St Mary's hospital's Lindo Wing.

"Harry & Meghan are establishing their intent to keep their baby's life as private as possible from day one".

During a visit to a new youth center in London on Thursday, the royal dad-to-be, who is expecting his first child with wife Meghan Markle this month, was all smiles as he accepted a gift for the royal baby.

It has also been reported the couple have picked their own medical team to directly oversee the arrival of the Queen's latest great grandchild - dispensing with senior medical staff associated with the royal family.

According to Insider, no photographs will be released until several days following the birth.

Of course, Baby Sussex will be seventh in line for the throne, which puts Prince Harry and Markle in a different position than Prince William and Middleton were in upon the birth of their children, as noted by royals reporter Chris Ship.

As Meghan Markle's due date approaches, royal admirers are becoming increasingly excited to meet the royal baby.
