Meghan Markle & Prince Harry Are Expecting First Child
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are expecting their first child
Kensington Palace announced the news on Monday morning via twitter, hours after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex landed in Australia for their first royal tour as a married couple.
“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 announced.
“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.”
After getting engaged in November of 2017, Harry, 34, and Meghan, 37, wed in May, tying the knot at St George’s chapel at Windsor Castle.
The newlyweds reportedly honeymooned in Canada, later embarking on an international tour over the summer.
The prince or princess-to-be will be seventh in line to the throne, behind Harry, who is currently sixth. Prince Charles is first, after Queen Elizabeth, followed by Prince William and his three children with wife Kate Middleton: Prince George, Princess Charlotte and baby Prince Louis, who was born in April.
Meghan and ex-husband Trevor Engelson did not have kids during their two-year union. They divorced in 2013.
Prince Harry and Meghan recently touched down in Sydney, Australia, as part of their 16-day visit to Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand.
