Duke and Duchess of Sussex,Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, are expecting their first child.
The annoucement comes days after rumors were rife online that Meghan is pregnant after she attended Princess Eugenie’s wedding in a long-sleeved loose-fitting coat and a sweeping dress.
Spokesman to Kensington Palace said: “Their Royal Highnesses are very pleased to announce that the Duchess of Sussex is expecting a baby in spring 2019. But there has been a public backlash against the announcement after it was revealed Meghan told family members at Princess Eugenie’s wedding to Jack Brooksbank on Friday.
Royal Highnesses the Queen, Duke of Edinburgh, Prince of Wales, Duchess of Cornwall, and Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted for the couple and were able to congratulate them on Friday at the wedding in person.
The US ambassador to the UK,Woody Johnson 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!!”
