The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are expected to announce the birth of their first child as royal fans desperately await news.

The child, which will be seventh in line for the throne, was due in late April or early May and Meghan is now on maternity leave from official royal duties.

The couple has previously announced their new-born would not be making his or her public appearance on its first day in the world, a step away from royal tradition.

In a statement, Buckingham Palace said: “They look forward to sharing the exciting news with everyone once they have had an opportunity to celebrate privately as a new family.”

They also have not confirmed or denied speculation that Baby Sussex will be born at home at Frogmore Cottage, near Windsor Castle.
