British Prime Minister Theresa May congratulated the couple on social media. She tweeted, “My warmest congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on the happy news they are expecting a baby in the Spring. Wishing them all the best.”

Prince William and Kate Middleton’s children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte have already been followed by shutterbugs ever since their birth. Now, the newest royal will also be joining his cute cousins.

After Meghan chose to wear the loose-fitting outfit at Princess Eugenie’s wedding, speculations about her pregnancy started doing the rounds on social media.

Meghan and Harry announced their engagement in November 2017. In an interview, both of them narrated how they fell in love. The lady revealed that Prince Harry went on knees to propose to her. Both of them tied the knot on May 19, 2018 at St George’s Chapel of Windsor Castle in London.

Meghan looked elegant in a shoulder-framing bateau neckline. She wore Queen Mary’s diamond brandeau tiara, borrowed from Queen Elizabeth II. From Priyanka Chopra to Oprah Winfrey, many big names became the part of their wedding ceremony.
