Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are considering a home birth for their baby daughter, who is due this summer, according to the New York Post.

According to royal sources, the child will be the first royal to be born in the United States.

The duchess wants to give birth at her Montecito estate and had intended to deliver Archie at Frogmore Cottage but ended up going to the hospital when he was overdue, according to Page Six.

Markle and her royal husband are now residing in a $14.5 million residence in Montecito, California, and will try to deliver at home once more.

“She has a beautiful home in California, it’s a beautiful setting to give birth to her baby girl,” an anonymous insider told the Post.

“Meghan’s plan was to have a home birth with Archie, but you know what they say about the best-laid plans,” a source told Page Six. “In the end, her doctors advised her to go to hospital and all she was interested in was about delivering Archie safely.

A source also stated that the royal couple has not yet decided how or when to announce the birth of their daughter. (Traditionally, royals have a photo opportunity with the press.)

“It’s unclear, now that Meghan and Harry are private citizens, if they will announce the birth or what that will look like,” the source added. “This time around, they don’t have to adhere to the royal protocol.”

Earlier this month, Markle and Harry confirmed they were expecting a daughter during an interview with Oprah Winfrey. The baby will be the Queen’s tenth great-grandchild.

Harry told Oprah that he felt “amazing.” when he saw on the ultrasound that they were having a daughter.

“Just grateful — to have any child, any one or any two would have been amazing,” he said. “But to have a boy and then a girl, you know, what more can you ask for? But now, you know, now we — we’ve got our family. We’ve got, you know, the four of us and our two dogs, and it’s great.”

If necessary, the pair is near to Cottage Hospital in Santa Barbara, Calif., which has been named one of the top hospitals in the country.

According to sources, Markle intends to take maternity leave.

During her most recent maternity leave, she guest edited the British Vogue “Changemakers” issue and completed the capsule wardrobe for the Smart Works organization, of which she was a patron.

“She doesn’t stop,” a person close to her stated.
