The Duchess of Sussex is pregnant, Kensington Palace has announced.
In a statement released this morning, Kensington Palace said:
“Their Royal Highnesses are very pleased to announce that the Duchess of Sussex is expecting a baby in Spring 2019.
“Their Royal Highnesses very much appreciate 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 their happy news.
“The Queen, Duke of Edinburgh, Prince of Wales, Duchess of Cornwall, and Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted for the couple and were able to congratulate them in Friday at the wedding in person.
“Ms Doria Ragland is very happy about the lovely news and she looks forward to welcoming her first grandchild.”
Meghan, 37, had earlier sparked speculation she was pregnant when she arrived at Princess Eugenie’s wedding on Friday via a side door.
Dressed in a navy blue Givenchy dress, her coat was unbuttoned at her stomach and some TV viewers claimed they could see a bump.
The rumours were further fuelled when Meghan touched down in Australia earlier today, carrying two purple folders over her stomach.
The news of the pregnancy comes just five months after Meghan and Harry, 34, tied the knot in a spectacular ceremony at Windsor Castle.
Earlier today, the couple arrived into a rainy Sydney for the start of a 16-day visit to Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand.
The trip, their first outside the UK and Ireland, will officially begin tomorrow and will see the couple watch the Invictus Games, visit a Sydney zoo and visit the rural Flying Doctor service.
The couple were driven from the airport to Admiralty House, the Sydney residence of Governor General Peter Cosgrove, the representative of the Queen in the country.
