Revealed: Meghan Markle secretly gave birth in hospital

It has now been revealed the Duchess of Sussex's plan for a home birth was axed after she was taken to hospital on Sunday.

According to the Daily Mail, Meghan was reportedly rushed to hospital with Prince Harry in such secrecy that even senior royals were unaware of the couple's movements.

The publication understands Meghan was taken to a private hospital in London, likely to be Portland, where the cost of a basic delivery comes in at more than $29,000.

The 37-year-old former actress is believed to have stayed at the hospital overnight before delivering her baby boy at 5.26am local time.

Buckingham Palace did not announce that the Duchess had gone into labour until several hours after the baby had been born.

A second statement was released less than an hour later announcing the couple had welcomed a son.

Following the birth, the 34-year-old royal addressed media to share more details around the birth.

The beaming Prince said: "I'm very excited to announce that Meghan and myself had a baby boy earlier this morning, a very healthy boy. Mother and baby are doing incredibly well. It's been the most amazing experience I could ever have possibly imagined.

"How any woman does what they do is beyond comprehension, but we're both absolutely thrilled and so grateful to all the love and support from everybody out there. It's been amazing, so we just wanted to share this with everybody."

"I haven't been at many births. This is definitely my first birth. It was amazing, absolutely incredible, and, as I said, I'm so incredibly proud of my wife.

"As every father and parent will ever say, you know, your baby is absolutely amazing, but this little thing is absolutely to-die-for, so I'm just over the moon."

When asked if they had any names for the newborn yet, Harry said: "Still thinking about names. The baby is a little bit overdue, so we've had a little bit of time to think about it.

"That's the next bit, but for us I think we will be seeing you guys in probably two days' time as planned as a family to be able to share it with you guys and so everyone can see the baby."
