A brief history of royal babies

Royal babies always attract global interest and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's child will be the first to have dual UK-US citizenship.

The couple have announced they're keeping details around the birth private and there are reports that Meghan is wishing to have her baby at home. She wouldn't be the first royal mum to do this.

Queen Elizabeth herself, was born at her maternal grandparents' London home 17 Bruton Street, Mayfair. She then had her three sons Charles, Andrew and Edward at Buckingham Palace, while daughter Anne was born at Clarence House.

The Duchess of Gloucester (the wife of the Queen's cousin Prince Richard) was the first royal to give birth to her son Alexander Windsor at the Lindo Wing at St Mary's hospital in Paddington in 1974.

Since then, eleven more royal babies have been welcomed at the private maternity wing. These include Princess Anne's children Peter and Zara Phillips, Princess Diana's sons Prince William and Prince Harry and all three of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.
