Buckingham Palace confirmed to Fox News that Harry will head to The Hague in the Netherlands on Thursday for the one-year countdown to the Invictus Games 2020. The palace previously announced Harry would be away from May 8 to May 9, but that was before The Duke and Duchess of Sussex welcomed a baby boy.
A source told Entertainment Tonight that Harry planned to cancel the trip had Markle not given birth yet. The Duchess of Sussex will reportedly be in good hands as her mother, Doria Ragland, is expected to be by her and the baby’s side the entire time.
Britain’s Prince Harry will travel to the Netherlands three days after Meghan Markle gave birth to their first child together.
A beaming Prince Harry was the first to talk to reporters outside Windsor Castle to inform the public that both mother and son were doing well.
The couple has yet to announce what they’ve chosen for the child’s name.
