Baby on board! Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry confirmed that they are expecting their first royal baby in October 2018, five months after tying the knot — and they’ve been opening up about her pregnancy ever since.
“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,” Kensington Palace said in a statement at the time. “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.”
The royal pair’s baby news broke hours after they landed in Australia for their first international royal tour together — and after months of baby bump rumors.
When the Suits alum, 37, arrived at Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank’s wedding in early October 2018, her conservative outfit had many royal followers convinced that she was expecting. Meghan set tongues wagging when covered up her navy dress by Clare Waight Keller with a long, loose-fitting coat and even kept it buttoned inside of Windsor Castle during the ceremony.
Four months later, the Duchess of Sussex celebrated her baby’s impending arrival with a New York City baby shower. The star-studded party was held at The Mark Hotel and attended by celebrity guests, including Serena Williams and Amal Clooney.
Gayle King, another baby shower guest, revealed that the former actress didn’t unwrap her presents until she returned to her husband’s side in England. “She didn’t open any of her gifts because she wants to do that when … she and Harry are back together,” the journalist, 64, said on CBS This Morning at the time.
