Interestingly, though, the Royal Family website states operational notes such as this one released by the couple are released “5 to 10 days prior to the event.” So many are convince Baby Sussex is arriving any day now.

Traditionally, the arrival of a royal baby is followed by an appearance from the proud parents with their newborn outside the hospital. But according to one royal photographer, it’s unlikely to happen this time.

Tim Rooke, who has photographed all three of the Duchess of Cambridge’s babies outside the Lindo Wing of St Mary’s hospital in London, recently told Cosmopolitan US: “I don’t think we’re going to get the same thing with the Duchess of Sussex’s baby. I don’t think we’re going to see it at all. I think it’s going to be private.”

The palace’s announcement comes after it was confirmed Meghan and Prince Harry had officially moved out of Kensington Palace in London and into Frogmore Cottage in Windsor.
