The Duke and Duchess of Sussex's firstborn will be arriving any day now and we're already suffering from royal baby fever, which wasn't helped when Harry and Meghan referred to their new arrival as Baby Sussex on their Instagram account. 

Baby Sussex will be arriving any day now and Prince Harry (34) and Duchess Meghan (37) sent royal fans crazy yesterday when they referred to their baby as Baby Sussex for the first time ever on their official Instagram account. 

They thanked fans of the Royal Family for donating to various charities for children as well as for sending the couple themselves presents for their firstborn. The Sussexes asked well-wishers to donate to the charities The Lunch Box Fund, Little Village, WellChild and Baby2Baby a week ago. Harry and Meghan revealed on their Instagram account yesterday that thanks to royal fans 100 000 hot meals will be served to children in need across South Africa.

Just one week ago, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex asked that you kindly consider supporting various organisations around the world in lieu of sending gifts for the upcoming arrival of their first born. Not only did many of you lend your support, you took action. Their Royal Highnesses wanted you to know the impact of your support – the direct effect your donation, energy, and action made! YOU chose to be part of the collective good, and you have made a real difference. Whether a $5 donation, £1000 contribution, offering to volunteer, or spreading the word – you've played your part. And on behalf of The Duke and Duchess (and Baby Sussex), we thank you so much. YOUR IMPACT: @thelunchboxfund will now be able to provide a minimum of 100,000 additional hot nutritionally fortified meals to children in dire need across South Africa @littlevillagehq received donations from all over the world (from UAE to Hong Kong and the US), they've increased their monthly donors, had a surge in volunteer applications, and re-energized their hard working team of 200+ staff and volunteers @wellchild can now provide 300+ additional hours of specialist care by a Well Child Nurse for a child with serious health needs, allowing families to stay together at home vs in hospital @Baby2Baby have received over 5,000 products to disperse to children in need, including cribs, books, backpacks, diapers and have received monetary donations from around the globe - from Guadalajara to Italy. You made this happen. Thank you.

And Baby2Baby, a charity which helps both parents and children in need in Los Angeles (Meghan's home town), received a huge amount of gifts thanks to the Sussexes call for support, including cots, books, backpacks and nappies.

Meghan and Harry are planning a home birth  

Speculation about all things Baby Sussex has been rife over the last few months, but it is believed that Prince Harry and his wife are planning to welcome their firstborn into the world at home in their newly renovated cottage close to Her Majesty's Windsor Castle home. They have opted not to have the Queen's senior royal medical staff on hand, but have instead picked their own team of medical professionals.
