Why Our First Glimpse of the Royal Baby Likely Won't Come Outside St. Mary's Lindo Wing

But when and where can we expect to get the first glimpse of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's baby?

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are getting ready to welcome their first child in the coming weeks, and their adoring public wants to know when we'll get to see the new royal baby for the first time.

Will they pose as a family outside the Lindo Wing at St. Mary’s Hospital in London like her sister-in-law Kate Middleton and mother-in-law Princess Diana? Unlikely, as Markle and Prince Harry will probably chose a hospital closer to their new home at Frogmore Cottage.

Will they post it on their new official Instagram account? Markle, 37, and Prince Harry, 34, may decide to post an official photo on @SussexRoyal, which launched on Tuesday, but we just don't know.

Where. Can. We. See. The. Baby. (Sorry, getting impatient.) It's likely that a few weeks after a picture of the family is released, the baby will have official royal portraits taken and released to the public.

What we do know is this: Markle has to follow the traditional birthing rules of the royal family when the baby is born, including who to tell first and when to reveal the news to the public. So, we'll find out the news after Harry and the Queen, of course. She must be informed before any family (besides William) and before the public. Traditionally, the announcement will be done outside Buckingham Palace. Then the literal town crier announces the news to the public. His name is Tony Appleton and he shouts the good news all over London.
