Could Meghan Markle be planning a home birth? That's one of the rumors flying around as the Duchess of Sussex's spring due date creeps closer. 

By the time the baby — or babies?! — arrives, Meghan and her husband, Prince Harry, are expected to have completed their move to Frogmore Cottage.

As such, the couple, according to People magazine, are looking at hospitals other than St. Mary's Hospital's renowned Lindo Wing, where Kate Middleton gave birth to her three children. At the top of the list? Frimley Park hospital, a mere 15 miles or so from their new home. 

Also in contention is a home birth, according to the magazine. 

Kensington Palace has not commented on any of the rumored plans.
