The statement was issued just before the couple began their royal tour of Australia. There had been speculation for a while that the couple is expecting a child based on Megan’s loser wardrove choices. The couple was married earlier this year in an elaborate ceremony at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle on May 19, 2018. This past Friday Princess Eugenie was married at the same location and Meghan and Harry were both at the celebration. People magazine reports that they did announce the news to members of the family during the reception and the family was very happy to hear the news. Along with the announcement of his younger brother expecting a child, Prince William became an uncle this Monday with his sister-in-law, Pippa Middleton having a baby boy with her husband, James Matthews. Prince Harry’s and Meghan’s baby is due early next year.
