Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, is pregnant. The news was announced by Kensington Palace officials in a tweet stating that the Duchess and Prince Harry will be expecting the child in the spring of 2019. This comes after speculation that the Duchess was expecting when she was seen with a “Baby Bump” by multiple news outlets. The news was later confirmed on October 15 around midday. This news comes just prior to a 16-day tour in Australia and New Zealand. The Royal tour will not be altered despite concerns from the public about Fiji and Tonga which are high risk for Zika virus.
