Kensington Palace announced on Monday, October, that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are expecting their first child in the spring of 2019. The couple shared the happy news with their family, including the Queen, Prince Philip, Prince Charles and The Duke and Duchess o Cambridge at Princess Eugenie’s wedding on Friday.

“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.”

It’s believed that Meghan is around 12 weeks pregnant. This baby, whether a boy or girl, will be seventh in line to the throne after dad Harry.

Speculation started around Friday that the duchess was pregnant when she wore a rather loose-fitting Givenchy coat to the royal wedding.

Meghan and Harry just arrived in Australia for the start of their two-week royal that will see the couple undertake 76 engagements. While there, they are expected to go to Fiji and Tonga, both countries that have a travel advisory due to a Zika risk, but the couple have received medical advice and still plan to visit the countries.


Meghan has said in a past blog post on her former website The Tig that one of her favourite baby names is Grey.
