With only a few days to go before the birth of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's first child, it's safe to say royal baby fever has reached its peak. Gossip about everything from Baby Sussex's sex to his or her name to Meghan Markle's birth plan is at an all-time high right now, and understandably, the duke and duchess are kind of over it. On Wednesday, the palace released a statement pertaining to the birth of Meghan and Harry's baby, and in so many words it said: Back off, people. 

  • Although Harry and Meghan are grateful for all of the well-wishes they've been receiving, they also want privacy. A lot of it.

    “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,” the statement read.

    ”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.”

    The palace also announced that Harry and Meghan will take part in a small photo shoot/interview on the grounds of Windsor Castle with only one reporter, one photographer, and one TV camera. 

    Additionally, the palace will reveal when Meghan is in labor (!), and there likely will be an announcement once he or she is born on Harry and Meghan's new Instagram account

  • One thing Meghan won't be doing, though?

    Recently, it was reported that Meghan isn't doing this because her son or daughter isn't a direct heir to the throne. But it's also been reported that Meghan feels like doing so is too much like being in a "goldfish bowl."

  • It's still unclear whether Meghan is giving birth in a hospital or having her baby in the comfort of her own home.

    Wherever the momentous event happens, one thing is for sure: Fans will be waiting with bated breath to hear the good news.

    And of course to catch a glimpse of baby.
