Meghan Markle will ‘snub Lindo Wing’ where Kate and Diana gave birth
Meghan Markle will ‘snub Lindo Wing’ where Duchess of Cambridge and Princess Diana gave birth and ‘break four decades of Royal tradition by choosing private maternity unit near Windsor home’
- Opting for unit near Frogmore Cottage to avoid public interest in her pregnancy
- Sources claim the Duchess of Sussex does not want to copy Kate Middleton

Meghan Markle is reportedly poised to defy four years of Royal tradition by snubbing the Lindo Wing where the Duchess of Cambridge and Princess Diana both gave birth.
Instead, sources claim the Duchess of Sussex will opt for a maternity unit near to her and Prince Harry’s home in Windsor – Frogmore Cottage – to avoid the ‘stress’ of the massive global interest in her pregnancy.
And Meghan’s decision to rebuff St Mary’s Hospital’s famous wing is also reportedly so the mother-to-be is not seen to be ‘copying’ Kate.

‘Harry and Meghan realise there is intense public interest but this baby is not a direct heir to the throne and they want the birth to be as private as possible’, the source told the Sun.
‘Meghan is nervous about complications such as an emergency Caesarean and doesn’t want the pressure of having to look immaculate on the hospital steps just hours later.’
Both Princess Diana and the Duchess of Cambridge posed on the steps of Paddington’s Lindo Wing after delivering their respective Royals.
The source said that the Duchess of Sussex did not want to be ‘primped and blow-dried to within an inch of her life’ immediately after giving birth but wanted to spent the precious time with her newborn.

Princess Anne was the first Royal to give birth in the Lindo Wing when her son Peter Phillips was born there in 1977.
The revelations of Meghan’s shunning of the hospital comes after Kensington Palace were forced to deny a flurry of reports that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were going to bring up their child ‘with a fluid approach to gender’.
And stories of an ongoing rift between the Cambridges and the Sussexes – the so-called ‘fab four’ – are continuing to make headlines.
MailOnline approached Kensington Palace for a comment.
