However, Meghan hasn't completely forgotten about her royal life, as the Queen will be welcome to take part in the celebrations, The Royal Observer source shared.

"The Queen will be very welcome if she wants to jump on Zoom,” added the insider, noting that the invite is eco-friendly and gender neutral despite the couple confirming they are having a baby girl.

"Baby showers are much more American than British, but the Queen certainly is aware of them after all the backlash and headlines that followed Meghan’s first in New York,” they said.

OK! previously reported that Harry, 36, and Meghan, 39, revealed the sex of their baby during their bombshell sit-down with Oprah on Sunday, March 7. At the time, the red-headed prince gushed about the couple's latest addition, sharing: “A girl, you know, what more can you ask for? But now, you know, now we’ve got our family. We’ve got, you know, the four of us and our two dogs, and it’s great."

The planning doesn't stop there. A friend of Harry and Meghan dished that they plan to take some time off after welcoming their baby girl later this year, according to The Royal Observer.

"It will be the summer and they want to make sure they both take their leave so they have some real quality time together once the baby arrives," the insider explained.
