Meghan, 37, and Prince Harry, 34, announced their pregnancy news via Kensington Palace just one day after landing in Sydney for their huge 16 day royal tour.
The statement read: “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.
“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 couple will visit Australia, New Zealand and Fiji during their stay, with a jam-packed diary full of engagements.
OK! magazine’s features and royal editor, Laura Hills, explains how pregnant Meghan – who is due to give birth in spring 2018 – will be well looked after by her royal entourage and husband Prince Harry.
“Meghan’s comfort and safety will be of the upmost importance during the tour,” she said.
She added it’s likely Meghan has passed the 12 week mark given the announcement, and is likely over the worst of any pregnancy symptoms she may have had.
