The Duchess is expecting her first child later this Spring. She is said to be considering a home birth at Frogmore Cottage, which she recently moved into with Prince Harry. According to the Daily Star on Sunday the Duchess could opt to deliver her baby in a birthing pool.
The paper reports a friend of Prince Harry as saying: “None of us was shocked when we found out she’d been talking about a water birth.
“Apparently she wants it to be as natural as possible: no drugs, no caesareans and so on.
“It’s the next logical step from all her yoga, mediation and so on.
“Obviously when she goes into labour she might end up, medically speaking, having to go the more conventional route.

Titled ‘In The Shadows of the Duchess’ it promises to “cover everything from behind the scenes that the world does not know about”.
Speaking to the Daily Star Online Samantha said: “You’ve got to read my book to see what things were really like.
“I have a very big mouth and speak my mind – as the world can see – at any cost, even if it makes me unpopular, but I tell the truth even if it makes me unpopular.
“I have never been afraid of the truth because if the truth makes me lose friends then they weren’t friends that I wanted to have anyway.”
Samantha was accused of being a “vulture” live on air by Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan just days before Meghan’s 2018 wedding.
