Harry and Meghan to keep baby plans private

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are expecting their first child later this month.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be keeping plans for the birth of their baby private.

The royal couple, expecting their first child this month, won't make any announcements about the birth until they've celebrated "privately as a new family," Buckingham Palace said in a statement Thursday.

Prince Harry, 34, married Meghan Markle, 37, last May. Five months later, they announced the pregnancy as they embarked on their 16-day tour of Australia, New Zealand Fiji and Tonga. The baby will be seventh in line to the throne.

Meghan, a California native, traveled to New York City in February for a private, star-studded baby shower.

The couple recently moved to Frogmore Cottage in Windsor, some 30 miles from London.
