Will Royals Harry and Meghan seek 'normality' for their baby?

With the birth of his first child expected next month, Queen Elizabeth's grandson Prince Harry and his wife Meghan will have to decide how "normal" a life they want the future seventh-in-line to the British crown to have.

Prince Harry experienced the attention that comes with being a British royal during his childhood.

The disintegration of the marriage of his parents - heir-to-the-throne Prince Charles and his late first wife Diana - played out in the public glare and his mother was killed in a Paris car crash in 1997 as the limousine carrying her and her lover Dodi al-Fayed crashed as it fled chasing paparazzi.

Diana had been keen that her two sons should be brought up away from the stuffy confines of royal palaces and their traditions.

She took them on trips to the cinema, to McDonald's, and to a theme park.

Polls suggest Harry is one of the most popular British royals, vying with the 92-year-old queen and his elder brother William for top spot, and his marriage to a glamorous Hollywood actress has only increased the media and public fascination.

Meghan, whose rift with members of her own family has provided great fodder for tabloids, giving her a clear insight into the baggage that being a royal brings, has not made any public statement about the possible upbringing for the baby.

Many analysts say it will be almost impossible for their child to completely escape his or her background - despite of the couple's wishes.
