In a series of tweets, it’s been revealed that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been overwhelmed by the support of the general public ahead of their first child. Kensington Palace tweeted: “Their Royal Highnesses have appreciated all of the support they have received from people around the world since their wedding in May and are delighted to be able to share this happy news with the public.”

According to royal commentator Emily Nash, it’s believed that Meghan is approximately 12 weeks pregnant. Nash revealed on Twitter, “Meghan is thought to be around 12 weeks pregnant, and the couple shared their news with family at the royal wedding on Friday.”

Attending Princess Eugenie’s wedding on Friday, Meghan and Harry looked as in love as ever. Actually, Meghan was rocking a serious glow throughout the event, which could either have been bronzer, or the fact that she’s expecting Prince Harry’s baby next year.
