With Meghan and Harry expecting their first bundle of joy this year, the world has caught royal baby fever.
Some people have even suggested that Meghan may give birth to twins.
While the Duchess of Sussex’s pregnancy will be much like any other woman who is expecting, there are a few very unique baby rules Meghan will have to follow, according to the Mirror.
The five rules Meghan must follow:
1. Keeping the baby’s gender a secret
Even Meghan and Harry will have to wait until the birth before they find out the sex of the baby.
At an engagement on Merseyside earlier this week the Duchess of Sussex told members of the crowd that she doesn’t know whether she is having a boy or a girl.
2. The Queen will be the first to know
The Queen will be the first one to be informed about the birth of the baby.
According to the Daily Mail, Prince William called Her Majesty on an encrypted phone shortly after the births of all his children.
3. No baby shower
While baby showers don’t go against any protocol it’s highly unlikely Meghan will have one.
According to ABC News royal expert Victoria Arbiter ‘a lavish baby shower would be seen as highly inappropriate’.
4. The baby will be wrapped in a knitted blanket
Traditionally, royal babies are wrapped in lacy knitted shawls made in Nottingham before their first introduction to the public.
If the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have a little girl, she’ll wear a tiny knitted cap to match, Good Housekeeping reports.
5. Naming the baby after royals
Royal babies are always named after either past or present members of the monarchy.
Princess Charlotte’s full name is Charlotte Elizabeth Diana, her name paying tribute to grandfather Prince Charles, great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth and her late grandmother Princess Diana.
