Like all royal fans, Prince Charles eagerly awaits the birth of Baby Sussex.
A source close to the royal family tells ET that Prince Harry’s father, Prince Charles, is “completely over the moon” about becoming a grandpa again, after he is already a grandfather of the children of his older son Prince William with Kate Middleton – 5 year old prince George, the 3 year old princess Charlotte and the 1 year old prince Louis.
The source notes that Prince Charles is primarily a big fan of his daughter-in-law, Meghan Markle, whom he walked down the aisle to her and Harry’s wedding at Windsor Castle last May. Since then, the two have been clubbed with a smile and a joke at royal events, naturally enjoying each other’s company.
“Prince Charles is extremely fond of his new daughter-in-law Meghan,” the source says, adding that he is looking forward to the big day that Meghan gives birth and can’t wait to meet Harry’s first-born.
Earlier this month, Meghan and Harry made the move to their new home at Frogmore Cottage at Windsor Castle after previously living in Kensington Palace, where Will and Kate also live. Our source says that one of the reasons for the move to Windsor was the opportunity to sacrifice their baby from the “curious eyes of the paparazzi.” But according to the source, Meghan and Harry already welcome their family as guests in their new home, which will continue when the baby comes. “The source says that some of Meghan’s best friends have recently been to London to visit, and she has more visits planned after the baby.
It was “a time full of love and excitement,” says the source of the couple eagerly awaiting their first child.
Regarding Meghan and Harry’s plans for the time the baby arrives, the source says the couple chose a lesser-known birth to celebrate as a family first as a family. Earlier this month, Kensington Palace revealed that Meghan and Harry are breaking the protocol regarding the arrival of their first child and will not immediately announce the birth of the baby. In addition, unlike Prince William and Kate Middleton, who posed for photos outside St. Mary’s Hospital after the arrival of their three children, Meghan and Harry have a photo with their newborn on the grounds of Windsor Castle when they are ready .
The Sussexes “want to spend time with their family and enjoy the first special days of their baby’s life,” the source says, adding that the public has less access to Baby Sussex than George, Charlotte and Louis because the child is not directly is in line to the throne.
A source recently told ET that Meghan owes “every day now”. In addition, two sources recently told ET that Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland, has already arrived in London.
