Enthusiasts of the British Monarchy and the world, in general, wait for the birth of the first child of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Meghan Markle’s baby bump is now apparent, and the expectant mom will be delivered of “Baby Sussex” in the nearest time.

Privileged with being British royalty, the Duchess can have up to a year of maternity leave if she pleases, but sources claim she told her aides she plans to return to work as soon as possible and not spend more than 3-months on maternity leave.

The Duchess has been doing some “behind the scenes work” with charities after ending her royal duties six weeks ago, and she enjoys working so much that she doesn’t want to spend so much time on maternity leave before returning to work.

A close royal source revealed that the Duchess wants to return to work as soon as possible as she is full of energy and strongly wants to do as much as she can with her charity work.

The source also said that Meghan had not added any events to her empty diary as she wants to check the way she feels after her baby's delivery before taking such decisions.

She is, however, likely to return to the spotlight in six weeks, when Queen Elizabeth would celebrate her official birthday in June.

Meghan was involved in a lot of royal duties before taking time off. One of her official duties included a meeting with Artistic Director and Executive Director of the National Theatre, Rufus Norris and Lisa Burger respectively, at Kensington Palace.

That meeting represents one way in which the Duchess is using to catch up on those who are closely linked with her patronage-related endeavors.

Her husband, Prince Harry will also be going on paternity leave, but for an unknown amount of time.

The Duke of Sussex would not be the first royal to go on paternity leave as his brother; Prince William also did so back in 2013 and 2015 after the births of Prince George and Princess Charlotte. Prince William, however, took a very short break of just two days after the birth of his third child, Prince Louis.
