Meghan Markle, Prince Harry announce pregnancy

They will also visit Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand, with the main event this year's Invictus Games being held in Sydney.

Prime Minister Theresa May was among those to congratulate the couple, writing on Twitter: "My warmest congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on the happy news they are expecting a baby in the spring".

But the latest addition to the royal family might not be a Prince or Princess.

Meghan wore a navy blue dress by Givenchy with a matching navy blue A-line coat that concealed her figure, prompting some speculation online that she could be expecting.

And as the happy couple arrived in Australia on Sunday for their first official tour since they got married, Meghan oddly carried purple folders in front of her stomach, with many people quickly putting two and two together.

Meghan and Harry, proud parents-to-be, are thought to have shared their news with the royal family including the Queen, Prince Phillip and Prince Charles at the royal wedding on Friday which would suggest there's some truth to the 12 weeks estimate.

Mills added: "Doria Ragland (Meghan's mother) is incredibly happy about the news and looking forward to welcoming her first grandchild".

And those four countries will still be visited by both Harry and Meghan.

The couple were also handed a pair of traditional Australian wife-brimmed Australian Akubras hats as a belated wedding gift.

The news came in the wake of Princess Eugenie's wedding to Jack Brooksbank, and five months after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex Wednesday at St. George's Chapel in Windsor.

"Meghan is a class act and the outfit choice for the wedding of Eugenie and Jack was obviously to not take the focus off the couple on the day", someone else wrote.

"Of course, one step at a time, and hopefully we will start a family in the near future", Harry said.

The confirmation comes after a flurry of rumors that Meghan could be pregnant. The baby is due in the spring of 2019 and will join cousins Prince George, 5, Princess Charlotte, 3, and Prince Louis, 6, months, from Prince William and Kate Middleton.
