Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are expecting the arrival of their royal baby.
Or he or she could have already been born and we don’t even know about it, given that the couple made it clear they will announce the birth once the family has had a time to celebrate in private.????And thus maternity and paternity leave will commence.
But because Meghan and Harry seem to be the rule breakers of the family, the time they will take off from royal engagements after the birth might differ from previous royal maternity and paternity leaves.????Like, According to Town and Country Queen Elizabeth, took a full 4 and half months off after Prince Charles was born even though she was a princess then and not yet queen.
She became Queen when Charles was 3 and Anne was just 1 and she and Prince Philip took off on a 6 month tour of the commonwealth leaving their children behind.
Talk about royal duty!????Princess Diana took the first month off after Prince William was born and then less than 2 months after Prince Harry was born she had 3 back to back engagements.????Kate Middleton has had a very similar maternity leave for all 3 of children.
She took off 5 weeks after Prince George was born before her first appearance, then with princess Charlotte, she also made an appearance about a month after the birth and with prince Louis she appeared at Meghan and Harry’s wedding about a month after.????We’re sure the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will hunker down with baby Sussex at Frogmore Cottage for quite some time...??
