One-Hour Special Premieres Tuesday, April 9th at 8 P.M. ET/PT
(Los Angeles, CA) – Almost two billion people tuned in to see Meghan Markle and Prince Harry tie the knot last May, and from the moment the royal newlyweds said “I do” the world had been anticipating another big announcement. Once Kensington Palace confirmed that the couple was expecting their first child, all eyes were once again on Meghan. After following all of the biggest royal events this past year, TLC takes an exciting look at the newest addition to the royal family in the months leading up to the birth. MEGHAN & HARRY: A ROYAL BABY STORY follows this historic moment. The one-hour special will premiere on Tuesday, April 9 at 8PM ET/PT.
“As the home of all things wedding, all things royal and all things family for viewers in the U.S., it makes perfect sense for TLC to follow this next generation of royals as they journey into the joys of parenthood. We’re excited to bring this special to our passionate fans,” said Howard Lee, President and General Manager of TLC.
Between Harry and Meghan’s plans to move out of Kensington Palace, Meghan’s elaborate A-list celebrity baby shower and her glamorous maternity wardrobe, the general public has been on non-stop royal baby watch. The questions keep pouring in – how will Princess Diana’s legacy impact Harry and Meghan’s parenting style? Is Meghan really going to have a hypno-birth delivery? Will Meghan continue the tradition of posing for a photo post-birth like others before her? Will Meghan seek out advice on how to raise a royal from sister-in-law and rumored rival Kate? Will Meghan’s father ever get to meet his grandchild after being so removed from his daughter’s new life? Fortunately for viewers, several contributors have plenty of insight to share on all things royal baby.
