Prince Harry And Meghan Markle Confirm They’re Expecting Their First Baby

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex

The news of the pregnancy was announced after Prince Harry and the American former actress arrived in Sydney 15 hours before their first public function.

Prince Harry and his wife the Duchess of Sussex are expecting a child in the spring, Kensington Palace said Monday.

"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", a statement from Kensington Palace read.

It seems they withheld the announcement so as not to upstage the wedding of Princess Eugenie - Harry's cousin - at Windsor Castle on Friday.

The royal couple, keen to converse with as many as possible, briefly separated so Prince Harry could go and talk to the families of veterans on the other side of the Boardwalk.

Australia's Governor General Peter Cosgrove gives the Duke and Duchess of Sussex a toy kangaroo, with a baby, at Admiralty House in Sydney on the first day of the royal couple's visit to Australia, Oct. 16, 2018. With Meghan's darker features mixed with Harry's lighter ones, Joe predicts that a baby girl would have dark hair and brown eyes, while a boy would have lighter brown hair and blue eyes.

Diana, Alice and Arthur are the early favourites to be the name of the new baby, who will be seventh in line to the throne.

TMZ first reported that the 25-year-old pop star and the 24-year-old Saturday Night Live star called it quits over the weekend. From getting tattoos dedicated to each other, to adopting a pet pig - Davidson and Grande seemed like they were all in.

Afterwards, they'll do a walkabout on the forecourt to meet eager royal fans, including 98-year-old war widow Daphne Dunne who has met Harry during his previous visits.

After their arrival Monday in Sydney, Harry and Meghan held hands and walked out an airport rear entrance and into a vehicle.

Australians far and wide are queuing up in the hopes of getting a glimpse of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex - and of course, the baby bump.

Meghan is believed to be around 12 weeks pregnant.

The Kingdom Choir gospel singers who performed Stand By Me at Harry and Meghan's wedding sent their best wishes to "the lovely couple".

Even though working royal family members can't participate in social media, Kensington Palace does have its own social media accounts to share official announcements and photos.

The visit also comes six months after Harry's father Prince Charles made his 16th official visit to Australia, primarily to open the 21st Commonwealth Games at Gold Coast city in Queensland. "Hopefully next time we see you we'll have a little one with us".
