As the world waits with bated breath for the arrival of Prince Harry and Meghan’s royal baby, fans are looking forward to more than a few Kodak moments. There are endless opportunities for toothy grins, from the very first shots we’re bound to see following the baby’s birth, to the christening, royal engagements and (fingers crossed!) a few candid Instagram snaps on the new Sussex account!
Here are all the times the world could catch a glimpse of Baby Sussex in the next year...
First birthday portraits
This is one thing all royal watchers look forward to with a new baby! The Cambridge kids – Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis – all posed for the sweetest snaps around the time they turned one year old, and the world will certainly be excited to see Baby Sussex’s pictures next year.
Royal Family members typically gather for a baby’s christening about a month or two after the child’s birth. Most recently, the Cambridges, Sussexes and other senior members got together at St. James’s Palace for Prince Louis's christening on July 9, 2018 – just two months after his birth at the Lindo Wing. Baby Sussex’s christening location is unknown right now, but this will likely be one of the first places the world gets to see the child with their loving parents and extended family.
Fans of Harry and Meghan have delighted in seeing some never-before-seen shots of the duo together since they formed their own household and debuted their new Instagram account. Rumours are swirling that Duchess Meghan may have a hand in running the account, so it’s likely fans are hoping for some future candid snaps of her first child to be revealed on the couple’s social media accounts.
The Sussex family Christmas card
Baby Sussex will certainly make a holiday debut on the Sussex family Christmas card this year! Last year, the duke and duchess released a new black-and-white wedding photo, which was featured on their first holiday card as a married couple. The picture featured the then-newlyweds watching their wedding reception fireworks at Frogmore House.
Baby Sussex will likely be too young to attend most of the big royal events this year, such as Trooping the Colour and Christmas Day service at Sandringham. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have taken to doing things a little differently (like keeping their birth plan very private), so they’ll probably keep their child out of the limelight for as long as possible.
