Meghan Markle Has Gone into Labor
The Royal baby watch on high alert as Buckingham Palace confirmed that the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle has gone into labor.
Meghan, Duchess of Sussex has gone into labor for the birth of her first royal baby with Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex. Buckingham Palace has reportedly confirmed the news that broke around 1:45 pm.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex first announced Meghan Markle’s pregnancy with a royal baby back in October 2018. They have decided to keep their birth plan private.

Meghan and Harry announced in April that they would be celebrating the birth as a new family. They would only be “sharing the exciting news with everyone," after they get to enjoy time alone with their baby.
The choice breaks away from the traditions upheld by Kate, Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William, who made their children’s births public. However, many have been understanding of the move.
