Meghan Markle and Prince Harry


First comes royal love, then comes royal marriage… and soon, a royal baby in a royal carriage!


That’s right, folks. Our favorite fairytale romance is taking its most joyful turn yet: Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, is expecting her first child with hubby Prince Harry!




On Monday (October 15), Kensington Palace shared the happy news, releasing an announcement via social media:


“Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Sussex is expecting a baby in the Spring of 2019.


Their Royal Highnesses have appreciated all of the support they have received from people around the world since their wedding in May and are delighted to be able to share this happy news with the public.”



The pregnancy announcement comes five months after Prince Harry and Meghan exchanged vows at Windsor Castle in England, and ends days of speculation as to whether the royal couple is indeed expecting, fueled by eagle-eyed followers and fans noticing Meghan’s roomier (yet still super chic!) clothing, and particularly the curious occurrence of her being photographed carrying a bunch of large folders – highly unusual for members of the royal family to do.

British media are reporting that the Queen and other members of the royal family learned about the pregnancy last week, and the public announcement seems to have been timed so as not to coincide with another royal couple’s big day – Princess Eugenie’s wedding to Jack Brooksbank on Friday (October 12).


Prince Harry and Meghan’s first child will be seventh in line to the throne, after Prince Charles, Prince William, Prince William’s three children, and Prince Harry.


The expectant parents had just touched down in Australia for their first overseas tour as a married couple when the pregnancy was officially announced.
