THE DUCHESS of Sussex is reportedly considering a home birth over the Lindo Wing where Wills and Kate had their three children, according to a royal expert.

“It’s understood that Meghan…could opt for the comfort of being at home”

The former Suits star announced her pregnancy in October and revealed she was expected to give birth in late April or early May.

She and hubby Harry, 34, were last seen attending the Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey, earlier this week.

It is expected to be Meghan’s last public engagement before she gives birth.

Russell Myers, Royal editor at The Mirror, said there was a possibility the former actress would consider a home birth over the Lindo Wing, where Kate Middleton and Prince William welcomed their children.

He added: “It’s still a possibility as it’s understood that Meghan has been researching hypnobirthing techniques and could opt for the comfort of being at home, rather than having an ‘on the steps’ moment outside the Lindo Wing like the Duchess of Cambridge has done with all three of her children.”

Mr Myers said Meghan could opt for the private wing of St Mary’s Hospital – an NHS site – where care can cost up to £6,200-per-night.

He continued: “If Meghan and Harry do choose to give birth at the Lindo Wing the logistics and processes involved are so much easier as there is a default plan.
