I too assumed they wouldn't want to take the risk in zika countries - as per the advice from various government health boards - but she is prepared to take the risk obviously.

She is avoiding some areas where Harry will go alone. As mentioned when the press was briefed. She has consulted her doctor and was given the ok to move forward. Given that she is already 12 weeks along, at least, and they have made the announcement, she could've cancelled on that leg of the tour if necessary.

Such exciting news! Congratulations to Meghan and Harry
I wasn't surprised by the news though as I had a feeling that some time later on this year Meghan would become pregnant. It's quite amazing to think that three years ago they didn't know each other and now they're going to have their first child together. I can't wait - I'm sure they're both going to be fantastic parents.

Okay, I see looking back in this thread that you already explained it. I am of African-American heritage too, but I don't know anything about changes in hair structure surrounding being pregnant. But then, I don't have children, although I do have lots of neices and nephews.

Oh, now I get it. I too noticed something frizzy on occasion about Meghan's hair, but I attributed it to her adjusting to variant weather conditions in England.

So, I'm willing to bet the baby will have curly or wavy locks, because Meghan's hair has a deep curl to it. It will be so cute if the baby has dark red or auburn wavy locks with green eyes and olive-toned skin -- not the type of skin that burns so red in the sun (like Harry's is prone to doing).

@Chloep:
You have to look to her roots and edges, not the rest of her hair - those can still be sleek and straight - but those baby hairs rarely lie when someone has been skipping treatments.

Yes indeed, Meghan will want to stay away from chemical-based hair treatments, but there are many other hair-straightening methods available, including blow-outs and good old hot irons. You'd think she will have a professional hair stylist familiar with these methods traveling with her from now on. Personally, I'd love to see Meghan say to hell with it, and go with a naturally curly hairstyle. But somehow, I do not think she will do that, mostly because she admittedly grew up yearning to have straight hair. I don't see her feeling comfortable with her curly hair. Chelsea Clinton has never gone back to her curly hair either.

Fingers-crossed that any Sussex children will have waves or curls to their locks. The gene for curly hair is more dominant than the gene for straight hair.
I also think the baby will have curly or wavy hair, about the hair color I don't think the baby will be a ginger, I believe American-African gene is the dominant gene, so the baby hair color might be brown if not darker. Same with brown eyes since brown eyes is the dominant gene and overrides the blue gene. But the baby can have blue eyes if Meghan also carries the blue gene. This is so fun, having a couple like Harry & Meghan that have a vast heritage, guessing the baby's look shall be interesting!



But with genes you never know, and it can play a trick to you your whole life (in my case, I had straight hair all my childhood, then my teens came and my hair became so curly that it was kinda weird/not little curls but large curls, then the adulthood came and now I have wavy hair for 7 years now...I never knew the reason why...).

A few years ago, I had a co-worker who has brown hair and his wife had red hair. Their baby had the most gorgeous hair color I've ever seen. It was light brown, but had red hue/highlights in them.

Curly hair is perfect for holding a tiara!

This seems very likely.

Sarah's tweets today IMHO had nothing to so with the Sussex baby news timing. Sarah had been involved in the planning of E's wedding for months and months, and now it's over. I suspect that as a sentimental person she just wanted to linger a bit more in feelgood wedding mode.

Meghan is thought to be around 12 weeks pregnant, and the couple shared their news with family at the royal wedding on Friday - the Queen, Duke is Edinburgh, Prince of Wales, Duchess of Cornwall and Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are “delighted for the couple” #royalbaby

Emily Nash @emynash 1m1 minute ago
A Palace spokesman said Meghan’s mum Doria Ragland “is very happy about this lovely news and is looking forward to welcoming her first grandchild” #ROYALBABY #DukeandDuchessofSussex

That is such great news, i wish them best of luck. The public pretty much called it on friday. The oversized coat when, almost no other woman was wearing on. The look also of it, being heavy, as to to fly up or open. It was a very windy day in all but not cold enough for a coat that looked that heavy. Also, the way she and Harry, Wills and kate moved into the church at warp speed. I wish her a healthy and safe pregency. I just had a feeling that an annoucement would be made this week. She is on a massive tour and i am pretty sure that she has to be careful of her diet, no drinking. I am pretty sure she won't get sick like kate did.

More likely, the Sussex pregnancy announcement was probably delayed until today to avoid stealing any thunder. Had it happened pre-wedding, at least some of the focus of the wedding would have been about “baby bump watch”. Even as it was, people were speculating about Meghan being pregnant because of her outfit (or accusing her of trying to stir up speculation while not pregnant).
100% Bulleyes, cojldn't have stated it better. The wedding is over, it was beautiful, the sun came out, and she looked amazing. The tour has started, and the news would haved been leaked. There is only so much covering up a woman can do when she starts to show.

But with genes you never know, and it can play a trick to you your whole life (in my case, I had straight hair all my childhood, then my teens came and my hair became so curly that it was kinda weird/not little curls but large curls, then the adulthood came and now I have wavy hair for 7 years now...I never knew the reason why...).
I’m interested in seeing too, but Meghan is mixed herself so I wouldn’t be surprised if the baby had different color eyes and/or hair. Either way I’m sure their children will be adorable.

I'm expecting a child that is lighter than Meghan but darker than Harry, with curly brown hair. Pretty much early 90's Mariah Carey, especially since her mom had a little red hair!

You can see a tiny bump there. No way the press would've let this go had they seen in on Friday.

Video makes sense in hindsight.

Thank you for this picture. She looks lovely and happy.

Yeah, they would have been all over this on Friday unless she had worn a very ill fitting, baggy dress to the wedding.
