Duchess of Sussex: Meghan goes into labour with her first child

The Duchess of Sussex has gone into labour with her first child.

It follows weeks of speculation about when Meghan, 37, might give birth – but no details have been given about where she is having her baby.

The pregnancy was announced in October, as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex began their first major overseas tour of Australia and New Zealand, and they were expecting the baby to arrive in the spring.

During a visit to Birkenhead in January, Meghan told a crowd of women during a walkabout that that the new royal was due in April or May.

While there, she also said she liked the idea of Amy as a name when a young girl suggested to her – but popular picks according to the bookmakers are Victoria, Diana, Arthur and James.
