Meghan and Harry want to celebrate birth of baby in private

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are to keep plans for the birth of their baby private, they have confirmed, as they decide they will not undertake a Lindo Wing-style appearance to show their new arrival to the watching world.

Kensington Palace officials said in a statement Thursday that Harry and Meghan "look forward" to sharing the news of their baby's birth once they have had a chance to celebrate privately as a new family.

As a future king, William is expected to help mark great occasions, while Harry - sixth in the line of succession - has more leeway.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have chose to keep details around the birth of their baby private, Buckingham Palace has confirmed. In the press release, CBS News said the special will "hear from royal insiders and Meghan's friends to learn how the couple has adapted to their new lives together and how they have navigated the positive and negative aspects that come with being royal".

"There's tremendous historical significance to the birth of any senior royal and when the new parents leave hospital it's the public's first opportunity to witness that history, but Harry and Meghan have been clear in their desire for privacy and for that reason they may well choose to forgo photographs". That account broke an Instagram record for quickly attracting millions of fans.

The announcement is not one that will surprise royal watchers, with signs the couple were going to do things differently to the Cambridges.
