Kensington Palace has confirmed that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are expecting their first child.

Meghan will become a first-time mom in Spring 2019!

Meghan sparked pregnancy rumours recently, with a few royal superfans spotting the tell-tale signs that she was about to make the big announcement.

The Royals are set for a new addition after the palace revealed this afternoon that the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, is pregnant. And, of course, Meghan's mom, Doria Ragland, is similarly overjoyed by the news.

The pair, who said "I do" on May 19, kicked off their first overseas tour with quite the bang!

The Patriots held a 24-9 lead at halftime, but the Chiefs scored 17 points in the third quarter to narrow the score. Gordon gives Tom Brady a big deep threat to go with the likes of Julian Edelman , Rob Gronkowski and James White.

They'll then attend Sydney's Invictus Games, with Meghan also embarking on some solo engagements during the tour. Meanwhile, the former Suits actress is still set to visit Fiji and Tonga later this month, even though there is risk of contracting Zika in those areas. As everyone was staring glumly into their Weetabix, bracing themselves for another week of work, rain and pretending that you're going to be good by going to the gym, the news gave us all a little boost to start things on a high.

Royals on the Road is a diary of 9Honey's experiences following Prince Harry and Meghan Markle across Australia, as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex take on their first global Royal Tour. "Meghan is a class act and the outfit choice for the wedding of Eugenie and Jack was obviously to not take the focus off the couple on the day", someone else wrote. "It's very sweet", she said while looking at a Moses basket and baby bath.

But as the second son of the Prince of Wales, Harry's children are not entitled to receive a HRH title.

The royal also slipped into the chapel at speed after arriving by vehicle; royal experts on the day suggested she didn't want to upstage the bride, but perhaps it was because she didn't want to showcase a baby bump on Eugenie's big day? When asked about their future plans for kids, Harry responded: "Children? As soon as you've got a title, it's very hard to shed it".

Titles were limited by King George V in 1917 in a way that would exclude Harry's children unless the queen takes action.
