“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,” Kensington Palace said in a statement.
“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 happy news comes five months after their royal wedding on May 19. The pair began dating in July 2016 after meeting on a blind date and were first revealed as a couple in October 2016. During their high-speed, long-distance courtship, Harry and Meghan spent time together at each other’s respective homes in London and Toronto, where Markle filmed Suits. They now reside at Kensington Palace.
The royal couple are currently in Australia for their first royal tour together. They touched down in Sydney, Australia, early Monday local time. And just like their very first appearance together last year at the Invictus Games in Toronto, they arrived hand-in-hand.
Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland, issued a statement via Kensington Palace, saying: “Ms. Ragland is very happy about this lovely news and she looks forward to welcoming her first grandchild.”
Senior members of the royal family who were in attendance at Princess Eugenie’s royal wedding on Friday were able to congratulate the couple in person.
The newest royal will be joining an adorable set of cousins. Prince Williamand Kate Middleton’s children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, have been stealing the spotlight since they were welcomed into the world (including on Meghan and Harry’s wedding day!). And baby Prince Louis, 6 months, will be the perfect playmate for his new cousin.
