According to The Sun, the Duchess of Sussex is one week past her due date and will need to be induced if no progression is observed in the next 48 hours.
As a geriatric pregnancy, the concerns of birthing complications and developing health conditions are higher, thus requiring more assistance during the labor process in what would have to be a hospital birth.
"Meghan is nervous about complications such as an emergency Caesarean and doesn't want the pressure of having to look immaculate on the hospital steps just hours later," a source told The Sun. "Like any anxious first-time mum, she's worried about the birth itself.
The source added, "Meghan also has the added stress of the world's attention on her - everyone wants to catch the first glimpse of the new royal addition."
