The announcement comes just after the couple arrive hand-in-hand to begin their 16-day royal tour around Australia, with a packed schedule of engagements. On Friday Prince Harry and Meghan Markle also attended Princess Eugenie's wedding alongside the royal family, and the duchess looked as radiant as ever.
With two weddings and now another royal baby on the way this year, we can't keep up with the exciting times for the royal family. Congratulations!
