The statement reads: "The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are very grateful for the goodwill they have received from people throughout the United Kingdom and around the world as they prepare to welcome their baby. Their Royal Highnesses have taken a personal decision to keep the plan around the arrival of their baby private."

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have officially moved into their home in Windsor. Harry and Meghan made the big move from Kensington Palace to the most beautiful ten bedroom home Frogmore Cottage.

The couple’s new home has undergone a major transformation ahead of the arrival of their first child. It is understood that the pair will have even more privacy at their new house which is exactly what they need ahead of the birth of baby Sussex.

It is believed Meghan and Harry hired designers Vicky Charles and Julia Corden of Charles and Co. to refurbish their home.

The 10 bedroom house has been turned into a lavish family home. It features a nursery and even has space for a yoga studio and a gym.

The plans for the house included two conservatory extensions, extensive landscaping, permission for a bedroom to be built above a studio on the property, and a few new fireplaces.

The parents-to-be even had a £50,000 green energy unit installed in the eco-friendly pad.

The property is extremely special to the royal couple. Not only will it be their first family home, but they also held their private evening wedding party and shot their engagement photos at Frogmore Cottage.

There’s no doubt Harry and Meghan are overjoyed to have settled in at their new home in Windsor.

Meghan Markle hasn't had her baby yet but she is planning ahead for when they are here.

The Duchess of Sussex is set to welcome her first child soon and is already asking some talented names to teach her little one some skills.

And one of them is Sir Elton John.

The iconic singer, who performed at Harry and Meghan's wedding, has been asked to teach their baby piano.

 A royal source said, ''Meghan and Harry adore Elton and loved him singing at their wedding.''

They continued, ''Meghan has been saying he’s the perfect person to teach their child the piano.''

They added, ''He’s apparently said he’d love to. Music is hugely important to both Meghan and Elton, so who better?!”

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Elton John (@eltonjohn) on

Sir Elton played four songs at Harry and Meghan’s reception in May 2018 after which the prince joked, ''Does anyone here know how to play the piano?”

The 72-year-old was a close friend of Harry's mum Princess Diana and performed a tribute version of Candle in the Wind at her funeral in 1997.

He has also worked with Harry for numerous charities, particularly on HIV.

We can't wait to see how baby Sussex will take to the piano but with a teacher like Elton, they have the greatest teacher of all.

Stop the world, we're getting off. Beyoncé and Jay-Z have once again proven how iconic and culture-shaping they are by putting a painting of Queen Meghan Markle behind them, and now it's for SALE in poster format.

The Carters won the Best International Group gong at The Brit Awards over the weekend, and paid tribute to the Duchess of Sussex herself in an ode to their incredible APESH**T music video in the Louvre.

Captioning the unreal video, Beyoncé wrote;

"Thank you to the Brits for the award for Best International Group. I won this award back in 2002 with my besties, Kelly and Michelle." Destiny's Child is for life, it's not a phase, mom.

"How lucky am I to have been in a group with my other best friend, the GOAT Hova. In honour of Black History Month, we bow down to one of our Melanated Monas. Congrats on your pregnancy! We wish you so much joy," she concluded.

Well, all other artwork is now irrelevant. The Renaissance is CANCELLED. The Louvre is to be shut down, except for this one painting that precedes all others. Picasso never happened. It's only Meghan Mona Lisa that matters.

Prolific artist Tim O'Brien is the man behind the amazing painting, and has done some amazing works to represent American politics and culture.

O'Brien works as a professor at the Pratt Institute and is one of the world's most famous illustrator, having covering Time magazine over and over again.

Every wall can now be dedicated to the Duchess yourself, because these posters are for sale. If you have $100, that is. If you're a rich b*tch, we HIGHLY recommend purchasing this rare art form.

O'Brien's website has loads of unreal work up for sale as prints, and even has a Beyoncé feature in Elizabethan garb, reminiscent of her Mrs. Carter world tour announcement. It's $85: Worth it.

We had NO idea that Beyoncé, Jay-Z and Meghan Markle were linked in any way, but the Carters' tribute to the Duchess of Sussex took everyone by surprise.

The married power couple were honoured at the 2019 Brit Awards, winning the prize for Best International Group, which Beyoncé won alongside Destiny's Child in 2002.

Though they weren't actually in attendance at the O2 in London, they graciously accepted their trophy with a surprising video message, and a surprise for Meghan.

At the beginning, Beyoncé and JAY-Z recreate their iconic Louvre museum music video for APESH*T, where they pose in front of Leonardo da Vinci’s infamous Mona Lisa. 

This time, in the world-famous painting’s place is a portrait of Meghan Markle herself donning a sparkling tiara and pearl necklaces.

“Thank you so much to the Brit awards for this incredible honour,” Beyoncé quotes to the camera. “You guys have always been so supportive. Everything is love. Thank you.”

The rapper then replies to Beyoncé's thank you message, cheekily saying, “You’re welcome,” and then the unreal duo turn to look at the portrait.

Beyoncé later shared an image to Instagram of the portrait, captioning it with a reference to Destiny's Child;

“Thank you to the Brits for the award for Best International Group. I won this award back in 2002 with my besties, Kelly and Michelle,” she wrote. “How lucky am I to have been in a group with my other best friend, the GOAT Hova."

Beyoncé gave a short explanation of the King and Queen of Hip-Hop's choice to include Meghan, congratulating her on the royal pregnancy.

“In honour of Black History Month, we bow down to one of our Melanated Monas,” she wrote. “Congrats on your pregnancy! We wish you so much joy.” Awwww.

Artist Tim O’Brien's illustration previously appeared on the cover of the alumnae magazine for Meghan’s sorority, Kappa Kappa Gamma.

Meghan is celebriting her baby shower in New York with her close gal pals, and has previously spoken about her bi-racial background.

“While my mixed heritage may have created a grey area surrounding my self-identification, keeping me with a foot on both sides of the fence, I have come to embrace that,” she wrote for Elle in 2015.

“To say who I am, to share where I’m from, to voice my pride in being a strong, confident mixed-race woman… I am enough exactly as I am.’" Meghan continued.

Meghan and Harry are not far away from becoming parents for the time.

And as they gear up to welcome their first child, they have been busy getting their home ready in preparation.

The couple is residing at their Cotswold home and Harry's Nottingham Cottage in Kensington Palace now.

The Palace announced their move to Frogmore Cottage in November, saying that the pair would be there in early 2019.

So what's Frogmore Cottage like?

A gift from the Queen, it boasts 10 bedrooms and renovations are in process.

According to ELLE, ''The hope is the renovation work at Frogmore Cottage will be complete before the baby arrives.''

The plans for the house include two conservatory extensions, extensive landscaping, permission for a bedroom to be built above a studio on the property, and a few new fireplaces.

Playing with their little on in the gardens will be something else for the couple to look forward to, as it is on private property and there will be no intrusion. 

Meghan is working with designers Vicky Charles and Julia Corden of Charles and Co. 

Charles worked as Soho House brand's head of design and worked previously on Soho Farmhouse's look, which is near Harry and Meghan's Cotswolds home, if you want to get some inspiration as to the look they are going for. 

We're sure Frogmore will be a home where the trio makes many happy family memories together.

We can all admit we’d love to live like a member of the royal family, especially after seeing Prince Harry and Meghan’s stunning Oxford home.

The first ever image of the property has been released by The Sun and we must admit we are hopelessly in love with the duo’s country pad. 

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex moved into the £2.5million farmhouse before their May wedding last year.

The property has four bedrooms, a large dining room, an outdoor seating area and even a two-bedroom cottage for Harry and Meghan’s staff.

The dream home is set in four acres of beautiful Oxfordshire land.

A friend of the royal couple told The Sun: “Meghan adores the area. She and Harry love walking the dogs there, and they can entertain their friends in complete solitude.”

“It’s a fabulous place with stunning views and extraordinarily private. It’s set in a small bowl of the beautiful countryside so is not overlooked in any way,” they added.

It is believed the parents-to-be will keep the cottage, even when they move into their new home in the coming weeks.

Kensington Palace confirmed that the parents-to-be are planning on moving early in the new year ahead of the arrival of their first child.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will move into Frogmore Cottage once refurbishments are complete. It is believed the house is undergoing a large transformation to ensure it is a suitable home for a family.

The 10 bedroom house will be turned into a lavish family home. It will feature a nursery and even has space for a yoga studio and a gym.

Frogmore Cottage is located in Windsor and holds a very special place in Harry and Meghan’s hearts.

Megan Markle is gearing up for the arrival of her first child with Prince Harry.

And now it has been revealed that she will be receiving a fabulous ''push present'' from her husband once she gives birth.

Push presents have reportedly become a tradition in the royal family, with Kate Middleton getting one from Prince William after each of their children was born. 

Well for some,huh?

Royal etiquette expert Myka Meier told The Sun that, ''Traditionally the push present, or gift given to celebrate the birth of a child, would be given bedside on the day of the birth from the father to the mother.''

So what does Harry have in store for Meghan?

Myka said, ''I think Prince Harry will get Meghan a custom piece of jewellery, perhaps with the date of the birth or initials of the new royal baby to make it extra special. From the beginning of their relationship, they have used jewellery to keep close, with the duo wearing matching bracelets while Meghan was in Toronto and Prince Harry was in London.''

Any other deets?

She continued, “I believe Prince Harry will give a piece of keepsake jewellery that will publicly be worn the week of the birth. I think it will be gold, the Duchess’ favourite metal for jewellery, and likely a necklace or bracelet.”

It sounds fab. 

Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, got a circular pendant from Prince William after George's birth,  inscribed with their firstborn’s full name, George Alexander Louis.

After Princess Charlotte’s birth in May 2015, Kate received a pair of £3,500 tourmaline, green amethyst and diamond earrings designed by Kiki McDonough – it is not yet known what she received after welcoming her third child, Prince Louis.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are set to welcome their first child into the world in the coming months. Picking a baby name is one of the biggest decisions any new parents will face and it’s no different for Harry and Meghan.

There’s even more pressure on the pair as the world will be waiting to hear what name the beloved couple pick for their baby.

Many people believe they will pick Diana if they have a daughter, after Harry’s late-mum, however, new reports have seen a spike in one girls name and we adore it.

Bookmaker Coral has found that Victoria is officially the front-runner if former Suits actress Meghan gives birth to a baby girl.

Victoria has been a popular name with the royals for generations and is a perfect option for Harry and Meghan’s first born.

The name Victoria is the Latin word for 'victory' or 'conquer' and is used as the feminine form corresponding to the name Victor.

Victoria was the name of the goddess of victory in Roman mythology.

The name is the current favourite at 8-1, followed by Diana at 10-1 and Alice at 12-1.

If the Duke and Duchess welcome a boy it is believed they will call him Albert. However, other reports claim Harry is hoping to honour his grandfather Prince Philip by picking Philip as his son’s moniker.

Albert is currently at 10-1. Other popular choices include Arthur and Alfred.

We are so excited for Harry and Meghan to become parents. There’s no doubt they’ll pick the perfect name for their baby boy or girl when the time comes.

Prince Harry’s days of partying are well and truly behind him. The dad-to-be decided to give up alcohol as a mark of respect to pregnant wife Meghan Markle, and now he has made another major changed to his diet.

He is no longer the wild, booze-loving prince he once was, “Now his new regime doesn’t make him the most entertaining party guest in the world, but he’s definitely more chilled and relaxed.”

Since marrying the former Suits actress, Harry has been living a healthier life. “All she [Meghan] did was show him there’s another way to live and he’s become a huge fan. He eats well, doesn’t poison his body, exercises, does a bit of yoga and is a lot happier.”

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle enjoyed their first Christmas together this year as a newlywed couple.

The pair attended Christmas day service at the Church of St. Mary Magdalene, before spending the rest of the day with the royal family. 

On St Stephen's Day however, there was a surprise in store. Despite previous report that Meghan had banned Harry from partaking in the Traditional Royal Boxing Day Hunt, the pair were in attendance. 

Harry joined his brother William on the hunt at Wood Farm, with Meghan and Kate Middleton joining them for lunch following the hunt. 

The couples enjoyed a light lunch of salads and cold cuts.

It was widely reported that Meghan had banned Harry from participating in the hunt due to her love of animals, as she is an animal rights activist. 

'An insider told The Sun: “William and Harry spent the whole day on the shoot.'

'Kate and Meghan joined them for lunch with the Queen and the rest of the Royal party.'

The Duke of Edinburgh did not take part in the hunt but he and the Queen also joined the party for lunch after the trek. 

Harry did not attend the hunt last year, on what was believed to be Meghan's wishes at the time.
