Some of the first photographs ever taken of Meghan as a baby have been revealed, ahead of the arrival of her first baby. Never-before-seen photos were published in the Daily Mail on Saturday, reportedly obtained from Joseph Johnson, Meghan’s uncle.
They include a portrait taken of Meghan and her mother Dora Ragland in a hospital room on the day the Duchess was born. More pictures show her home with beloved late Granny Jeanette, with more special moments captured as she grew up. Another particularly cute photo shows Meghan taking her first steps outside and walking up to the camera.
The Duchess is expecting to give birth to her first baby in the next few weeks. Last week, the couple moved into their new house in Windsor, Frogmore Cottage, where they’ll raise their child. Now, after taking a break from public engagements ahead of the birth of her child, she will be spending her time resting and getting to know the new neighbourhood. With an interest in design and interior, the Duchess probably was involved in the décor of her new home and will probably use her time putting the finishing touches to the baby’s nursery.
Kensington Palace announced on Thursday that the couple would be keeping the details for their birth private. The public would be informed by the parents after they have had the chance to celebrate the news themselves.
The statement read: “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are very grateful for the goodwill they have received from people throughout the United Kingdom and around the world as they prepare to welcome their baby. Their Royal Highnesses have taken a personal decision to keep the plans around the arrival of their baby private. The Duke and Duchess look forward to sharing the exciting news with everyone once they have had an opportunity to celebrate privately as a new family.”
