Meghan Markle and Prince Harry expecting first child
Another royal baby is on the way.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are expecting their first child together, Kensington Palace confirmed in a statement 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,” 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.
