Wherever the couple decides to welcome their child, royal fans are not getting a look at the newborn outside the hospital.
Away from the "goldfish bowl" of Kensington Palace, the Sussexes can enjoy a rural lifestyle in Windsor, with its Great Park on their doorstep. Given how everyone is being tight-lipped, we probably won't know when Markle gives birth until a few days after the fact.
Speaking in a preview of TLC documentary Meghan and Harry: A Royal Baby Story, royal biographer Duncan Larcombe says the chances of Thomas Markle meeting his grandson or granddaughter are slim after what has been a rocky year for him and daughter Meghan.
But, despite being two of the best in the business, the pair have been denied a leading role in the delivery of Prince Harry's baby.
Despite feeling that the public has the wrong idea about Markle, King explained that she's in good spirits ahead of the birth of her first child with Prince Harry.
According to royal protocol, the doctors can not be excluded from the process entirely, and should anything go wrong in the birth they will be present to step in. She was adamant that she wanted her own people.
Yet, some other facts from the past weeks seem to indicate that the royal baby is still not here, but is coming shortly - that, for instance, Meghan was last seen in public on 19 March, when she visited New Zealand House with Prince Harry to pay tribute to those killed in the Christchurch massacre.
It was announced before all three of Kate's deliveries that she would be giving birth in the private Lindo Wing of St. Mary's Hospital in London, following in the footsteps of Princess Diana, who welcomed both William and Harry there.
"She just wants a normal, natural birth and to bond with her baby, without being primped and blow-dried to within an inch of her life just for the pictures", a source told the paper.
The private couple will be pleased that some royal birthing traditions have been consigned to history.
