The next royal tot is about to arrive, and don’t think for a moment Prince Harry isn’t an integral part of the birth — and not just for the obvious reasons. As it turns out, Mr. Meghan Markle has a very important job once the baby gets here.
As soon as the baby is born, Harry is tasked with picking up an encrypted phone and informing his grandma, the Queen, that the blessed baby has arrived.
Next on the “to call” list is likely Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland, and Prince Charles.
The Queen has to be informed of baby Sussex’s birth — any royal baby, for that matter — before it can be made public, usually via a press release, followed by an easel outside Buckingham Palace.
However, this protocol was broken when Kate and Will announced the birth of Prince George on Twitter, so who knows what notorious protocol breaker Meghan will do. Her penchant for eschewing tradition is also why we may not see the much anticipated offspring for awhile.
While Kate preferred to introduce her tot to the world’s press within hours of it emerging from the womb, it would not be outrageous to think Meghan might do things differently.
It’s plausible that the couple may just release a photo of the baby on Instagram. They just joined the social media platform on Tuesday and if they’re like every other doting parent, it will soon be flooded with baby pics.
