Duchess of Sussex Meghan pregnant, Kensington Palace says
[LONDON] Britain's Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle, wife of Queen Elizabeth's grandson Prince Harry, is pregnant, Kensington Palace said on Monday.
"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 palace said in a statement.
The couple married in May and are currently in Australia on their first overseas tour.
Prince Harry and Meghan touched down in Sydney on Monday, kicking off a bumper Pacific tour that is the British royals' first major outing abroad as a couple.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex arrived in a wet and wintery Australia after a weekend spent celebrating the marriage of their relative Princess Eugenie to a wine merchant.
The more than two week official visit will take in multiple stops in Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand - all parts of the Commonwealth of states formerly colonised by Britain.
