Prince Harry and his wife Meghan are expecting their first child in the spring of 2019, around a year after their glittering wedding injected Hollywood glamour into the British royal family.

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

British media said Meghan was believed to be about 12 weeks pregnant.

“Their Royal Highnesses have appreciated all of the support they have received from people around the world since their wedding in May and are delighted to be able to share this happy news with the public,” the palace said in a statement.

The child will not be a prince or a princess unless the queen authorizes such a title before the birth. Instead, royal experts said if a boy, the child would officially be styled the Earl of Dumbarton – one of Harry’s subsidiary titles – and Lady Windsor if a girl.

The news emerged shortly after the royal couple landed in Australia for their first overseas tour, a busy trip which will also take in New Zealand and the South Pacific islands of Tonga and Fiji. — Reuters

Britain’s Prince Harry and his new wife Meghan Markle – the Duke and Duchess of Sussex – appeared at their first official engagement since marrying last weekend when they attended an event in the gardens of Buckingham Palace on Tuesday (May 22).

The couple, whose wedding in Windsor on Saturday (May 19) was watched by millions of TV viewers worldwide, was at a party to celebrate Harry’s father Prince Charles’ charity patronages and military affiliations ahead of his 70th birthday this year.

Also, there were several emergency services personnel who were first responders after the Manchester suicide bombing exactly a year ago which killed 22 people, the Palace said.

Charles and his wife Camilla visited Manchester Arena last June to meet staff who were first on the scene immediately after the bombing.

Heir to the throne Charles, who will be 70 in November, played an impromptu role in Saturday’s royal wedding, accompanying Markle up the aisle in the absence of her own father who was unable to attend.

Harry and U.S. former actress Markle are expected to go on honeymoon later, though no details of when or where have been announced. — Reuters

Royal super fans camped outside Windsor Castle for another night, as the massive security operation stepped up days before the royal wedding between Prince Harry and his American actress fiancee Meghan Markle.

“We’ve all been waiting for Harry. If his mom was alive now Diana, she really would be proud of the pair. For me, Harry is different. He is more upfront. He does what he wants. Even the duke, you know, can’t call the card on him. He actually does what he does,” said Terry Hutt, a royal fan from Western-super-Mare.

Also making sure they will have a good view of the couple, television crews from all over the world were seen early morning setting up positions.

On Windsor’s streets, decorated with swathes of red, white and blue “union jack” flags, hundreds of tourists and journalists mingled with dedicated royal fans – some draped with UK flags and holding photographs of Harry and Markle – while armed police patrolled.

“It’s colorful, seeing so many people come together from all walks of life, different countries even people who live locally that don’t come here that often. Even they’re coming here more and more every day. It’s quite nice to have everyone come together,” said Amaad Akbal, a local resident.

More than 100,000 people are expected to descend on the town on Saturday.

Local police said royal fans coming to Windsor to witness the wedding will experience tight security, even though there is no known threat to the event. — Giselle Bonifacio | UNTV News & Rescue
