Prince Harry and pregnant Meghan Markle visit Australia

Prince Harry and pregnant Meghan Markle visit Australia

Palace aides confirmed she is about 12 weeks pregnant - which would give a due date around April time in 2019. While the baby news has been secretly brewing among the duke and duchess, the two have not shied away from public appearances. They kept their relationship secret for several months, but word eventually leaked to the British press.

War widow Daphne Dunne, 98, was front and centre of the crowd eagerly waiting for Harry and Meghan Markle outside the Opera House - and her patience paid off, with Harry greeting her like an old friend.

Meghan and Harry's baby will be seventh in line to the throne and the Queen's eighth great-grandchild.

Following news that Meghan Markle is pregnant with Prince Harry's baby, a forensic artist created images showing what the child might look like.

The palace said the couple had sought medical advice and made a decision to continue with their plans.

The trip is the first global tour for the Duke and Duchess since they were married, apart from a two-day visit to Ireland.

Australia and the United States have congratulated Prince Harry and his wife, the former Meghan Markle, after it was announced that the royal couple is expecting their first child.

Basepoint Dartford tweeted: "A huge congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex!".


Other royal family members were the first to know, as Harry and Markle reportedly shared the news privately just a few days prior at Princess Eugenie's wedding.

"That coat dress was a dead giveaway!" one fan wrote, referencing the navy Givenchy dress Markle wore to Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank's wedding on Friday.

The Royal couple are expecting their first child in spring 2019.

"Of course, one step at a time, and hopefully we will start a family in the near future", Harry said.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have announced they are expecting a child, just hours after landing in Sydney for the Invictus Games.

There are parallels between her life and that of Princess Grace, another American who left a successful Hollywood career to marry Prince Rainier of Monaco and start a royal family.

"I want to. commend Prince Harry for his tremendous initiative in lifting the spirits of every single service man and woman all around the globe", Morrison said.
