What we all suspected is indeed true! Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are in the family way, expecting a baby early next year! Hurrah!

The baby beans are spilled!

Kensington Palace reps just broke the news via Instagram noting they were “very pleased” and also “delighted”!

The royal baby-to-be is currently in Australia with his/her parents and we could not be more excited by this news either!

“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 posted.

“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.”

Whoop! There is is!

Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan aka the Duke and Duchess of Sussex married on 19 May 2018 and have been polite enough to wait for the also-just-wed Princess Eugenie to have her moment to shine this week, before announcing their brilliant news.

In the mean time, the royal baby bump has been cleverly hidden by a series of purple folders, open coats … and closed coats. Genius Watch and learn, preggo ladies.


It’s clear that Meghan has not suffered the same horrendous morning sickness her sister-in-law Kate has, appearing to breeze through the past few weeks glowing and wearing a variety of peplums, frills and blouse-y styles to keep the mum situation mum.

Huge congrats to to this lovely couple on their exciting news! We can’t wait to hear more about it!
