There’s a new royal baby on its way! Just five months after their royal wedding in May, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle (now the Duke and Duchess of Sussex) just announced that they’re expecting their first child, due Spring 2019. The little prince or princess will be seventh in line to the throne, after their father, Prince Harry.

In a statement released by Kensington Palace on Twitter, the couple are “delighted to be able to share this happy news with the public.”
Meghan fuelled pregnancy rumours earlier this month, when she appeared in public with her hair down and straight instead of in her usual style. Speculation grew when the Duchess attended Princess Eugenie’s wedding last Friday suspiciously wrapped up in a large coat.
The happy couple got hitched at St. George’s Chapel on May 19, and their wedding ceremony was televised and watched by millions all over the world. They are currently In Australia on their first official royal tour, which will see them visiting New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga as well.
Meghan and Harry touched down in Sydney this morning, where Meghan was spotted clutching two huge purple folders in what many believe to be an attempt at concealing her burgeoning baby bump:
