Kensington Palace said in a statement on Monday, October 15, that Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Philip, Prince Charles, Duchess Camilla, Prince William and Duchess Kate “are delighted for the couple and were able to congratulate them on Friday at the wedding in person.”
Meghan, 37, sparked pregnancy rumors at Eugenie, 28, and Jack Brooksbank’s wedding in St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle in England when she covered up her Givenchy dress with a long, loose-fitting coat that she kept on for the entire ceremony. A source previously told Us Weekly exclusively that Meghan (née Markle) and Harry, 34, had been “trying for a baby” and “both want a big family.”
The couple, who wed in May, announced the news on Friday morning, shortly after arriving in Australia for their first tour as husband and wife. The palace said in a statement that the mom-to-be is due in the spring of 2019, and that she and the prince “are delighted to be able to share this happy news with the public.”
Harry previously said during his first joint interview with the Suits alum that they wanted to have children. “Hopefully we’ll start a family in the near future,” he told the BBC in November 2017, hours after the pair announced their engagement.
The royal baby will be seventh in line to the British throne.
