Some of the first ever photographs taken of the Duchess of Sussex as a baby have been published, ahead of the imminent arrival of her own firstborn.

The couple today announced that they are to keep the details about the arrangements for the birth of their baby private.

Since the royal wedding last May, Meghan has been dogged by gossip about a feud with her sister-in-law, Kate, not to mention the media antics of her estranged father and half-sister.

The couple said in their statement they are grateful for the goodwill messages they have received from around the world.

There are 543 parliamentary seats up for grabs, including that of Prime Minister Narendra Modi , who's running for a second term. If Modi is perceived as having had the better of the skirmish, he is likely to make inroads at the ballot box.

Meghan has kept the gender of her child a secret from the public and is said to be considering a home birth at her new home with father-to-be Harry in Frogmore Cottage. Since the pregnancy announcement, there has been plenty of speculation about where the baby will be born. She said that Middleton is so much better when it comes to mixing things up because she is able to wear designer clothes for big events and wears other brands for some public outings.

Queen Elizabeth gave birth to all four of her children-Charles, Andrew, Edward, and Anne-at home. The Sussexes' communication will be headed up by newly appointed spokeswoman, PR heavyweight Sara Latham - who most recently led campaigns at communications firm Freuds, and was previously a senior adviser on Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign. That account broke an Instagram record for quickly attracting millions of fans. The legendary TV host appeared on CBS This Morning to promote her new collaboration with Prince Harry and came to Markle's defense for how the Duchess of Sussex is being portrayed.

With William set to be king someday, he'll have very different responsibilities than his brother - and with Harry expecting a baby in the coming days, it was time for the siblings to split their joint "court" at Kensington Palace for two separate offices.
