    Plans surrounding the birth of the royal baby have been a seriously-guarded secret since the pregnancy of the former US actress was announced last year.

    Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex and wife of the UK’s Prince Harry, has gone into labour, Sky News reported. The child will be seventh-in-line to the British throne.

    Buckingham Palace has officially confirmed that Meghan, 37, went into labour earlier this morning.

    On 11 April, the couple shared a statement saying they've "taken a personal decision to keep the plans around the arrival of their baby private".

    ​Harry and Meghan made a announcement that they were having a baby on 15 October 2018, five months after their wedding ceremony.
