Royal Baby News: Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Are Expecting

It’s a big year for the royals. Hot off the weekend of the second star-studded royal wedding of 2018 (this one, Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank), we have a pregnancy announcement from the first. Kensington Palace announced Monday morning that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are expecting their first child.

Confirmed via their social accounts, the palace says the Duchess is due in Spring 2019. The statement continues:

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.

If you’re wondering, the newest royal won’t automatically be a prince or princess; they will be addressed as Lord or Lady, unless awarded HRH stylings by the Queen herself, according to a 1917 ruling by King George V.

The Duke and Duchess are currently in Sydney for a royal tour of Australia, Fiji, Tonga, and New Zealand.
