5 months after the wed of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the couple is expecting their very first baby in spring 2019.

The couple informed the Queen and other members of the Royal Family on Friday when they gathered in Windsor to celebrate the wedding of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank. “Their Royal Highnesses very much appreciate 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 their happy news. The Queen, Duke of Edinburgh, Prince of Wales, Duchess of Cornwall, and Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted for the couple. Ms Doria Ragland is very happy about the lovely news and she looks forward to welcoming her first grandchild,” a Spokesman stated.

“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 Kensington Palace Twitter account announced Monday. The Duchess of Sussex and Prince Harry are currently visiting Australia as part of their first Royal tour.

The Palace did not comment on whether Thomas Markle, the Meghan’s father, has been told. Grant Harrold, a former butler to Charles, William and Harry, tweeted: “Congratulations to The Duke and Duchess of Sussex who are expecting their first child in the spring.” Woody Johnson, the US ambassador to the UK, was among the first to respond to the royal baby, tweeting: “Happy news to wake up to on a Monday morning – congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex!!”
