Meghan Markle is in labour

Britain will soon welcome a new royal baby.

Meghan Markle has gone into labour.

Her and Prince Harry's child will be seventh in line to the throne - though the birth is set to grab headlines across the globe.

The couple launched their own official Instagram account in April, @sussexroyal, the latest step in the creation of their own household ahead of the new arrival.

The former U.S. actress married the Queen's grandson at Winsdor castle back in May.

Their union, bringing together royalty and celebrity, has proved an irresistible combination for the world's media.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced they were expecting whilst on a tour of Australia in October.

And the mom-to-be was spotted in New York in February - reportedly for a baby shower.

A trip to Morocco was the royal couple's last official engagement abroad.

The couple announced in April they had taken "a personal decision" not to make the news of the birth immediately public.

And that they look forward to sharing the news with everyone, once they have had an opportunity to "celebrate privately as a new family".
