Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland also said she was “very happy” by the news and is looking forward to the birth of her first grandchild.
It is understood that Meghan is past the 12 week mark – royal pregnancies are normally announced after 12 weeks.
Kensington Palace said there would be “no changes” to the royal tour to Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand as a result of the news.
The announcement comes as the couple began their first official foreign tour together in Australia.
Congrats to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex!!!
