A new report claims Meghan Markle is set to break royal tradition and give birth at home.

Vanity Fair’s royal correspondent says the 37-year-old Duchess of Sussex is believed to want a home birth instead of the luxury Lindo Wing where Kate Middleton had all of her children.

The Duchess of Sussex is also said to be looking into the practice of “hypnobirthing”, which involves using a mixture of visualisation, relaxation and deep breathing techniques.

According to reports, Meghan’s mother Doria Ragland – who is reportedly moving to the UK to be closer to Meghan – has played a big part in her decision.

“(Doria) wants to be on hand to help Meghan and Harry with the baby,” a source told the magazine.

“Doria will be involved and if she’s involved she will be encouraging Meg to go for a natural birth.”

The royal couple — who said ‘I do’ in May — are reportedly drawing up plans for a nursery at Frogmore Cottage in Windsor.
