Could Meghan Markle Welcome Her Baby At Home? Royal Expert Katie Nicholl Breaks Down The Birth Plan

Access Hollywood Wednesday, 17 April 2019
WATCH: Did Prince Charles & Camilla Just Spoil Meghan Markle's Due Date? [mpx_id value=3940266 post_id="538223"] While the concept of a home birth may sound alternative, it's not a move that's disapproved of – or even unprecedented – within the royal family. "It is a bit of a breach of tradition, but it's not one that is being resisted at the palace," Nicholl revealed. "And don't forget, the Queen had all of her children either at Buckingham Palace or Clarence House. In those days, royal births were very private." Still, despite Meghan's reported wishes, a home birth may not pan out for her. "At 37, this is considered a geriatric pregnancy," Nicholl said. "My hunch is that we'll probably end up being in a hospital." The author picked Frimley Park Hospital – an English National Health Service facility that's a 15-mile drive from Meghan and Harry's cottage in Windsor – as her best bet. [gallery_id value=510728 post_id=510728] Even if Meghan does end up nixing a home birth for the hospital, she could still end up doing things her own way. Nicholl tells Access that in either scenario, the Queen's medical team will be on standby "in case of an emergency" outside of the delivery room, while the duchess' handpicked obstetrics team takes the lead inside. This move makes sense to Nicholl, who emphasizes that Meghan has made a pattern of eschewing royal norms. "Everything that we've seen from the Duchess of Sussex is that she is not traditional in what we expect of the royal family," she said. "So it doesn't come as any surprise to me that she doesn't want the men in grey suits delivering her baby. This is a woman with 37 years of experience. She's very opinionated. She knows her own mind. She knows what works for her." While it's unknown which obstetrician will oversee Meghan's labor, Nicholl bets it's a woman – one who could be flown in from outside the UK. "I wouldn't be at all surprised if it was an American," she dished. *WATCH: Meghan Markle's 'Suits' Dad Wendell Pierce Writes Touching Message To Pregnant Duchess* [mpx_id value=3937759 post_id="537395"]]]>
