It's official: Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis will be getting a new cousin in 2019! On Oct. 15, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle formally announced that they are expecting their first child. Kensington Palace revealed the news early in the morning, stating that the new little royal would be making an appearance in the Spring.
Us Weekly initially reported that Meghan is allegedly due on or around May 2, 2019, which just so happens to be Princess Charlotte's birthday, but the duchess is now setting the record straight about her due date. During a visit to Birkenhead with Harry on Jan. 14, Meghan told a group of fans that she was due sometime in late April. "We asked her how her pregnancy was going and she said she was six months and she tapped her tummy," crowd-goer Carla Gandy told People.
