Prince William isn’t revealing any royal baby birth secrets.
While shaking hands with fans during his recent visit to New Zealand, the 36-year-old Prince was asked by a bystander about whether or not there were “any signs” of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle‘s baby.[irp posts=10241]
Without missing a beat the jovial prince smiled and patted his jacket pocket.
“I haven’t got my phone on me,” William said, in a video that captured the moment and was posted to Instagram by Marie Han of New Zealand Woman’s Weekly.
“I have no idea!” he added with a laugh. “You guys will find out before I do at this rate!”
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle want the utmost privacy for Baby Sussex, and at least one royal expert thinks that’s a mistake.
The New York Post reports that Markle will have a home birth at the couple’s newly renovated Frogmore Cottage without Queen Elizabeth’s royal doctors, a virtual first for the British monarchy.
The report claims that Markle, 37, and Harry, 34, will have a helicopter waiting in case the Duchess of Sussex needs to go to a hospital.[irp posts=7880]
Markle also will not pose for photos immediately after giving birth, with sources close to the duchess claiming that she “feels sorry for” sister-in-law Kate Middleton, who had photo ops for each of her three children just hours after their respective deliveries.
“They’re basically conducting the birth in virtual secrecy. I think it’s a bit foolish,” Duncan Larcombe, former royal editor at The Sun, told the New York Post.
“Harry absolutely hates being the subject of speculation, and this just shows his petulance to the media … it’s just a shame.”
