There may be a small bump already. She is likely 4-5 months pregnant due to the miscarriage last year. Likely June or July baby.




I think the Cambridges are done. But would be interesting if Beatrice made it four for the year.
Yes I think Louis was the last Cambridge baby ...I hope Beatrice has news soon!

I guessed that she found out that she was expecting when the trial (Daily Mail thing) was postphoned for "personal reason" late October. So I think the baby is due around June, give or take a few weeks.

And of course: Congratulations to the whole family!

Think five is likely as far as she is. She had a miscarriage seven months ago.

Many women show sooner, and she did with Archie.

Congrats to them! Really sweet picture. I immediately thought of Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant in Notting Hill, where in the last shot, Julia is shown laying in Hugh's lap with a cute bump.

Maybe the baby will be born at great-grandfathers 100th birthday or on grandmothers 60th birthday!

Absolutely stunning photo of the couple and wonderful news.



Extremely distasteful to say that one hopes another couple will hurry up or also announce a baby as those couples may not want to have children/ another child, or may be experiencing pregnancy loss or infertility. These are the kinds of comments that break hearts and divide families when one couple announces a pregnancy and Aunt Sue turns to the other couple and goes "I guess you guys are next!" Honestly. People do not think.

They removed it because it was fake information. Hence removing it.

Honestly the suggestion they announced a pregnancy 2 months in, should have screamed 'fake' even before it was removed.

I truly hope this baby is not born on its grandmother's birthday. Especially if they have a girl.

The kid needs to have its own day, not share a day with its grandmother who is still held up as an idol.

Philip wouldn't be as bad. As Philip doesnt have the same idol status as Diana. And it would be sweet to share his 100th birthday with a new great-grandchild.

That hadn't occurred to me. They announced it on Valentine's day.

Meghan looks quite a bit along. I suspected she was pregnant during the CNN Honors video. And definitely was quite telling in the video over the weekend. My guess she is due not later than June but can be as early as April as well.

So that is three babies in 2021 for this family. As well as Cambridges 10th and HMQ 95 and Philips 100 birthdays. So many celebrations.

Such happy news after what was I'm sure a very difficult year for them in multiple ways. I know it's something that is bringing them joy as a family and gives them something to look forward to. I had thought they were probably going to announce that they were expecting soon.

I also love the announcement. I admit that I had expected them to do something like announce the day that Eugenie had her baby or brought him home, or in something like a photoshoot in People magazine. But this is so low-key, lovely, and feels very intimate. I think they couldn't have announced it in any better way!

YAAAAAAY! That is such great news to wake up to! Congrats Sussexes! Love the photo - feels like they are sitting under a tree that symbolises the tree of life. Wished they included Archie in the photo. Nonetheless, loved it!

I think Meghan is around 4 or 5 months. Although women show earlier in their second pregnancy, I think they waited longer than the "safe" 3 months to announce

Wishing Meghan and Harry a safe, healthy and joyful pregnancy

The clues were there, 1. the legal postponement for personal reasons was the biggest clue, 2. Only head shots at zoom meetings , 3. The recent info although not sure if this came direct from them or a ' source' that Meghan would not be travelling to the UK with Harry later in the year as she didn't want to leave Archie, all they had to do was bring him.
Due to lockdown they have been able to keep things under wraps a bit longer, good for them it is long enough without everybody asking when you are due.

Did they announce when exactly she was due? Based on the picture she looks to be at least 4 or 5 months along (again, that can vary because this isn't her first pregnancy and I know from friends and coworkers that you often start showing sooner with subsequent pregnancies). So maybe a spring or early summer baby?

Wonderful news for Harry and Meghan after what they went through. This baby with be eighth in line to the throne unless being born in the US knocks the child out of the succession. I can't see Harry and Meghan going back to the UK for her to give birth. (I wonder if that is why Meghan wanted not to come to the UK for her lawsuit and was granted for confidential reasons; the judge knew she was pregnant). The baby announcement made it on MSNBC and will be announced on CNN on TV.

No due date released. She has to be 4 or 5 months along IMO.

There is no requirement for a heir to the throne being born in the UK.

You have to remember there are hundreds of people in line of succession to the throne. Many foreign royals like Haakon who is 81st in line for the throne at the moment, were most certainly not born in the UK.
