Meghan Markle And Prince Harry Expecting First Child

The royal couple's visit comes six months after Harry's father, Prince Charles, made his 16th official visit to Australia, primarily to open the 21st Commonwealth Games at Gold Coast city in Queensland.

The announcement came after the pair arrived in Sydney for the start of their first official royal tour.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, who Wednesday in May, are now in Australia for their first official tour as a married couple.

Britain's Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle, wife of Queen Elizabeth's grandson Prince Harry, is pregnant with the couple's first child due in the spring of 2019, Kensington Palace said on Monday.

The baby will be the Queen's eighth great-grandchild, in Kensington Palace.

The baby will be seventh-in-line to the British throne.

Facebook has so far partnered with Spotify Premium, Pandora, and iHeartRadio, as well as Facebook Watch , Food Network and Newsy. The firm estimated that device makers shipped almost 12 million smart speakers in Q2 2018, about 8 million more than a year ago.

Their official visit, lasting more than a fortnight, will take in multiple stops in Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand - all members of the Commonwealth of predominantly former British colonies.

BBC royal correspondent Jonny Dymond, who is in Sydney, said of Friday's wedding: "It was there that the duke and duchess chose to inform the most senior members of the Royal Family about the duchess's condition".

The Duke and Duchess spent the day resting at Admiralty House in Sydney where they spotted walking hand in hand around the gardens. "Wishing them all the best", she wrote.

The virus is linked to severe birth defects and was declared as a global medical emergency by the World Health Organization in 2016. The couple already have a successful 12 week scan of their baby.

He said: "She's wanted children for a long time".

The infant will be the Prince of Wales's fourth grandchild and be a cousin of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

Harry and Meghan met on a blind date, arranged by a mutual friend, and got engaged 16 months later. Among those expressing their delight was Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, who officiated at their wedding.
