According to insiders, the Duchess of Sussex has snubbed the posh Lindo Wing at London’s St. Mary’s Hospital — where Princess Diana welcomed Harry and William, and sister-in-law Kate delivered George, Charlotte and Louis.
“Meghan is set to bring her child into the world at the vegan-friendly, new-age Mulberry Suite at Frimley Park Hospital near the royal couple’s new home, Frogmore Cottage,” a palace insider exclusively revealed to Radar. “The luxury suite has a birthing pool, king-sized bed and full vegan menu. It’s made-to-order for Meghan!”
Our source says Meghan plans to use yoga and hypno-birthing techniques without drugs — and she has Harry’s full backing!
“But she’s riled the royals. They’re calling her plan wacky — even dangerous!”
Harry, 34, and Meghan, 37, expect the baby to arrive in late April.
“Meghan’s totally converted Harry to her New Age ideas and thinking,” added a palace insider. “She’s got him so wrapped around her royal finger, he’s given up drinking and smoking and taken up yoga, alternative therapies and massage to heal his mind and body!”
The loved-up couple even spent two-and-a-half hours at Ilapothecary, an herbal wellness shop in London on March 29. It offers homeopathic remedies for new moms and products “blessed with healing chants.”
It also claims its 45-minute Happy Hormone Equilibrium treatment helps post-birth recovery.
“Meghan’s been practicing labor-coping yoga techniques focused around breathing patterns and chanting in rhythm to cope with the pain of childbirth,” dished a source.
She’s also studied hypno-birthing, a relaxation technique involving deep breathing and self-hypnosis, and she has a doula — a birthing coach — too.
“Meghan wants to shut out the world and have just her and Harry — and her mother, Doria, who’s flying over from Los Angeles — welcoming their little prince or princess,” the source continued. “There was a lot of pressure on Meghan and Harry to use the royal favorite Lindo Wing to deliver the seventh in line to the throne. But Meghan dug her heels in and retorted, ‘This is our baby, not yours … butt out!’”
