Revealed: Overdue Meghan's home birth dream was dashed as she was secretly whisked to a London hospital on Sunday by Harry and his Scotland Yard security team before their 'to die for' baby boy was born at 5.26am EXCLUSIVE: The Mail understands that the Duchess of Sussex – who was a week overdue – was whisked off amid such secrecy that even senior royals weren't told. It is understood she was taken to a London hospital – most likely the Portland – where even a 'basic' delivery costs upwards of £15,000. Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie were delivered there.

His grieving family revealed they have been left in 'inconsolable despair' after the attack.

In a moving statement, they said: 'He would have loved to see his children grow up, he would have spoiled them.

Au pair Sara Zelenak was on a night out with friends when she was brutally stabbed to death near Borough Market.

Her mother Jullie Wallace recalled the cruel twists of fate that led to her daughter coming face to face with the terrorists.

The 21-year-old, from Brisbane in Australia, had worked as a crane operator for her stepfather Mark Wallace to save up the money to move to the UK.

She had been due to babysit on the night of the attack but went out with friends when the child's grandmother stepped in.

Sara, nicknamed 'Sarz', then planned to go to Soho but decided to go to Borough Market instead so she could meet up with more friends later.

Mrs Wallace said: 'She was the happiest she had ever been - working, travelling, meeting new people, doing all the things 21-year-olds should do.

'That was until 3 June 2017 when our lives changed forever. She walked into a terrorist attack and was stabbed to death.

20 Years On From The Admiral Duncan Pub Nail Bombing In Soho, Survivors Remember The Attack

20 Years On From The Admiral Duncan Pub Nail Bombing In Soho, Survivors Remember The Attack For some people it’s the sound of an almighty bang ripping through London’s Soho, on a busy and warm Spring evening, that has stuck with them all these years. For others, it’s the bitter smell that filled the noses of those in the streets nearby, while for some it’s the images of the walking wounded who staggered away covered in blood. Tuesday marks 20 years since the bombing of the Admiral Duncan pub on Old Compton Street in London’s bustling West End. For those who witnessed the attack, these memories are still as vivid as they were in the immediate aftermath, and they don’t go away.

His mother Josiane and brother Julien Belanger said in statements: 'We miss him so much; his smile, his joie de vivre.

'I don't forgive what they did to him, they mutilated and stabbed him. His eyes were full of dreams, the dream of presenting his own gourmet dish in a restaurant in France.'

Coroner Mr Lucraft told a packed court that he hopes the inquest will answer the 'obvious and understandable questions' of the relatives of those who died and give the bereaved families some comfort.

He said many revellers had been watching Real Madrid beat Juventus in the Champions League final in bars and pubs minutes before the attack.

He added: 'The lives of many people were torn apart by what took place in less than 10 minutes of high and terrible drama.

'I hope these inquests provide answers to the obvious and understandable questions that the families have.

'On June 3, 2017, a white Renault van containing three men was driven south across London Bridge.

'As the van drove across the bridge it repeatedly mounted the pavement and struck many people.

'Sebastien Belanger, Xavier Thomas and Christine Archibald were killed as a result. A number of others were seriously injured.

'Angel of London Bridge' killed trying to save another victim

'Angel of London Bridge' killed trying to save another victim A woman dubbed the Angel of London Bridge was stabbed by all three attackers when she rushed to the aid of another victim after telling her friends: "I'm a nurse. I have to go and help", an inquest has heard. Kirsty Boden, 28, had been dining with friends at Boro Bistro when Khuram Butt, Rachid Redouane and Youssef Zaghba crashed their van on London before attacking bystanders in Borough Market. The Guy's Hospital nurse dashed from her table to help waiter Alexandre Pigeard, 26, who had been stabbed during the attack.

James McMullan, Alexandre Pigeard, Kirsty Boden, Sara Zelenak and Ignacio Echeverría were stabbed to death in the chaos.

Metropolitan Police Commissioner Cressida Dick, the head of UK counter-terrorism policing Neil Basu and the Commissioner of City of London Police Ian Dyson were in court as the inquests opened.

The attack came just three months after 52-year-old Khalid Masood mowed down pedestrians on Westminster Bridge in a hired car before stabbing a police officer to death.

The inquest is expected to examine why there were still no barriers to protect pedestrians on London Bridge by June 3.

Families will also want answers to the question of how Butt was able to plan and carry out the attack while he was under investigation by security services.

Another issue likely to be raised by lawyers acting for the relatives of the victims is the lack of security checks required to hire rental vehicles after cars and lorries were used as weapons in Nice, Berlin and Westminster Bridge.

In the coming weeks, the court will hear from witnesses, the family and friends of the attackers, and a senior MI5 officer.
