The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, has reportedly made plans to take three months maternity leave after she the delivers her baby. The heavily pregnant Markle is expected to give birth soon.
According to Page Six, the 37-year-old plans to get back to work as soon as possible. The duchess reportedly told her aides that she would not be taking the one year leave for women in the United Kingdom.
Although, nothing has been written down in her schedule yet. The duchess says she wants to see how she feels after the baby's arrival.
A royal source told Page Six that Markle would likely return back to public life in six weeks for the Queen's official birthday.
The source said: “Meghan has made it very clear she wants to return to work as soon as possible. She has huge amounts of energy, is extremely determined and wants to be as hands-on as possible with her charities.
Nothing has been written into her diary just yet, as she wants to wait and see how she feels after having the baby. She’s penciled in three months, but she’ll most likely return to public life in six weeks — on the Queen’s official birthday, Trooping the Colour, in June."

According to the source, Markle is used to the United States standard of three months leave unlike the six or twelve months in the United Kingdom.
“Three months’ maternity is standard in the US for American mums, they don’t normally get the six or even 12 months women get here in the UK. So this is totally normal for Meghan.”
It was gathered that Prince Harry would also be taking paternity leave. Meghan's mother, Doria Ragland, also arrived in the United Kingdom last week, ahead of the arrival of her grandchild, Baby Sussex.
