Meghan Markle, Prince Harry announce pregnancy

Meghan Markle Pregnant Prince Harry

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were said to be "very pleased" to be expecting their first child in spring 2019.

When the Duchess of Sussex - wearing a white dress by Australian designer Karen Gee - was congratulated on her pregnancy, she said: "Thank you so much". "The duchess has stayed very consistent to her style signature", stylist Brooke Jaffe told Inside Edition.

The 98-year-old famously stole a kiss from Harry during his visit to Australia in 2017; two years later, the pair met again in the pouring rain when Harry was in Sydney for the Invictus Games launch.

There are parallels between her life and that of Princess Grace, another American who left a successful Hollywood career to marry Prince Rainier of Monaco and start a royal family.

Harry has not been an arm's length "dignitary", he gets down and rolls around with kids, he smiles generously and gives of himself, you can see the impact he has by the faces of the people around him.

A forensic artist has revealed what he thinks Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's baby will look like, and even released photos of his predictions.

But the real interest was in the news - announced on Monday night - that the royal couple were expecting their first baby next year.

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison, who will climb the Sydney Harbour Bridge this week with Harry, tweeted: "What fantastic news!"

Sears to close almost 150 more stores, files for bankruptcy
Lampert, who remains chairman, acknowledged in the statement that turnaround efforts so far have fallen short. Lampert partially spun off the company from its parent in 2012 and was Sears Canada's biggest shareholder.

"I can't wait to start a family, but in due time", she said.

The Invictus Games is definitely an important cause for the couple.

The gesture was a wedding gift to the royal couple from the NSW Government, announced when they tied the knot in May.

The royal couple was driven from the airport to Admiralty House, the official Sydney residence of Governor General Peter Cosgrove, who represents Australia's head of state, Queen Elizabeth II, Harry's grandmother.

Kensington Palace said the couple first told the queen and their extended royal family members at cousin Princess Eugenie's wedding on Friday.
