Meghan Markle Is Pregnant: The Duke And Duchess Of Sussex Are Expecting Their First Child

Prince Harry and his wife Meghan – who married in May – will welcome their first child into the world next spring and are “delighted” to be announcing their happy news.

Kensington Palace said in a statement released on Twitter:

The news comes after the couple arrived in Australia on Monday (15.10.18) for their first major international tour since getting married.

The news comes a few months after Harry, 33, joked he didn’t want a large family.

As the couple greeted fans in Dublin in July, Elaine Adam-Stewart, 43, told Harry: “My husband also has red hair and he gave me five children — when are you and Meghan going to get going?”

She added: “He laughed and said ‘five children? Too many.’ ”

But the 36-year-old former actress’ father Thomas Markle previously revealed his daughter has wanted a baby of her own for a “long time.”

He said: “She’s wanted children for a long time. When she met Harry and she spoke about how much she loves him… there’s got to be a child in the making there soon.

“I couldn’t be more proud of those two, I think they’ll do a fabulous job. They’re great and I love then dearly. I’m very happy to have a new son-in-law.”
