Honestly, it also allows them to take charge of the situation. Meghan was at a point where she was obviously not as thin as she was before the summer, but not enough to generate serious pregnancy speculation. At this point, it doesn't look like their hands are forced, but rather a planned announcement. It's really going to be annoying if the whole tour turned into a is she/isn't she watch. Now we know she is, and they can get on with it.

How nice of them to wait until after cousin eugenie's wedding. I certainly suspected as much since she reappeared in August or September with her hair not treated. Wonderful news as I was concerned about her age for a first baby

Very likely. The media will be marking their spots in front of that door again.

That's gorgeous new! Congratulations to the happy parents to be!
The family is currently growing at a breathtaking rate. The Queen and Prince Philip must be thrilled to see the arrival of another great-grandchild.

This is fantastic news!

I am sure they shared this information with the senior royals in a way as to not to take attention from Eugenie's wedding but as Carrie (or Miranda) said to Charlotte in Sex in the City....you get a day...not a week! Eugenie and Jack had a beautiful wedding and it was all about them as it should have been.

But honestly, at this point...the information had to be announced. They start the tour tomorrow....whats the weather like in Australia? I am not sure she could hide it any longer if weather is a factor.

This is 'doing the [Social Network] rounds'...

It's going to take Meghan Markle at least 3 years to become a British citizen. This may seem like just a bureaucratic annoyance. But it's really all part of Perfidious Albion's plot to retake America:
1. So long as she is not a British citizen, she will keep her US citizenship (it would be awkward for a prominent member of the royal family to be stateless). Any kids they have during that time will be US citizens, as well - and "natural born" citizens qualified to become president. As proof that you can be a "natural born" citizen even if born abroad, so long as one parent is a US citizen, the prince can cite the 2016 court decisions in favor of Ted Cruz, on this issue.

2. Obviously, the kids will also be in line to succeed to the British throne.

3. When Harry and Meghan's oldest kid turns 35, and becomes eligible for the presidency, he or she can run for president and win (American voters love the British royal family!).

4. Once the prince wins, during the transition period between the election and inauguration, the then-reigning monarch can abdicate, and possible successors ranking ahead of the prince/president will step aside, thereby enabling him to become president and king simultaneously. Thus, the US will come under the authority of the King (or Queen) of England!

5. The Title of Nobility Clause of the Constitution cannot prevent this. The Clause says US government officials may not "accept" noble titles from foreign governments without the consent of Congress. But it says nothing about people who had such titles BEFORE they attain office. Thus, an American-citizen child of Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan could get elected president, then become king or queen during the transition period, all without violating the Clause. There is also no law against dual citizens becoming president.

6. Once the King-President is ruler of both nations, he can sign an agreement with himself under which the US rejoins the British Empire! Recent presidents have already usurped much of the treaty power from the Senate, and that process is likely to be even more advanced 35 years from now. He can thus claim there is no need for Senate ratification of the agreement, and the Supreme Court is likely to conclude that the issue is a nonjusticiable political question.

When the US once again becomes part of the British empire in 35 years, you can say you heard it here first!

Now that is a tale that sounds like a made for TV movie on the SyFy channel!! It would surely draw a big viewing audience.

The actual reality of this ever happening though needs a step ladder to reach zilch.

I didn't expect baby news so soon after their wedding. But congrats anyway.


Hopefully Meghan's family not be causing stress for the duchess while she is expecting.


I am pretty sure that H&M informed older royals privately just before or soon after recent wedding. Harry might not be brightest guy in BRF but even he surely understands when and where announce such things.

Not only is this uncalled for, but your speculations are far off. It has been said that senior royals congratulated them in person at the wedding last friday, this implies that close family members knews even before the wedding, the announcement was not made at the wedding
