Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Are Expecting Their First Child—And We're Excited

Meghan Markle is pregnant! On the first day of the Duchess and Duke of Sussex's royal tour in Australia, the couple announced the news.

In a statement released this morning, Kensington Palace said the couple are "delighted to share this happy news." The couple's baby is expected to be born next spring, as Meghan is believed to be just over three months pregnant. The Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh, the Prince of Wales and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are also said to all be "delighted" for them.


The announcement comes five months after Meghan and Harry's wedding at Windsor Castle this summer.

Because we wouldn't be Byrdie without a bit of beauty, we decided to round up the best pregnancy safe beauty bits that we'd quite like to send as a care package to Meghan. Or you know, just in case she decides to have a scroll through Byrdie whilst she's travelling through Australia on her royal tour (either way, highly likely).
