Grinning from ear to ear as his American wife, 37, was nowhere to be seen, the 34-year-old appeared carefree as he greeted fans in London before opening a youth centre in the Capital. Waving and taking selfies with a huge crowd that appeared outside the brand new Barking and Dagenham ‘Future’ Youth Zone, the father-to-be appeared in high spirits.He was also pictured laughing and joking with staff at the centre, which created by the Charity OnSide Youth Zones and is the first of three facilities expected to open in 2019.
The appearance comes after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced they are not revealing plans for the arrival of Baby Sussex.
The royal couple have made the “personal decision” not to share details about the tot, who will be seventh in line to the throne, until they have had time to “celebrate privately”.
Their household said in a statement: “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 plans around the arrival of their baby private.
“The Duke and Duchess look forward to sharing the exciting news with everyone once they have had an opportunity to celebrate privately as a new family.”
It follows growing speculation that Meghan could go for a home birth at Frogmore Cottage in Windsor.
An insider claimed it was a likely option after the US-born former actress had “sailed” through her pregnancy.
The source told the Daily Mail: “It is her favoured choice but it obviously depends on how things are nearer the time.”
Frimley Park Hospital in Surrey, where the Countess of Wessex gave birth to her children, has also been suggested as it is close to Meghan and Harry’s new house.
