Meghan Markle Is Pregnant and Expecting Her First Child With Prince Harry!
Another royal baby is on the way! Kensington Palace announced Monday, October 15, that Duchess Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are expecting their first child together.
“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,” the 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.”
Markle’s mother, Doria Ragland, shared in the excitement, saying in a statement via the palace that she “is very happy about this lovely news and looks forward to welcoming her first grandchild.” Prince William, Duchess Kate Middleton, Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Philip, Prince Charles, and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall are also “delighted,” the palace told People in a statement.
The exciting news comes five months after the couple’s royal wedding in May. Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan first began dating in July 2016 and went public with their relationship in October 2016.
The royal couple are currently in Australia for their first royal tour together, and will no doubt share more baby details as Markle nears her due date. Congrats to the growing family!
