The Duchess of Sussex is pregnant! That’s right, the woman formerly known as Meghan Markle is expecting her first child with Prince Harry and they — and we — are ecstatic. Not because a woman is worth any less if she doesn’t have a child but, rather, Harry and Meghan’s love is so strong that it deserves to be embraced and passed down through the generations.
But baby steps. Let’s just bask in their glorious news and share everything we know about Meghan’s pregnancy thus far. You ready? Buckle up your seatbelts and car seats because it’s about to be wild.
It’s not like they kept wanting a family secret, right?
Did Meghan give us a hint about her pregnancy in September?
When did Harry and Meghan tell the other royals?
How did Meghan’s mom take the news?

How many kids do they want to be blessed with?
Where in succession to the throne will he/she be?
Will he/she get a title?
Is this what Harry and Meghan’s kid might look like?
What was the couple’s first baby gift?
Hmm, Meghan, are you sure about that?
"I've always coveted the Cartier French Tank watch," she told Hello! in 2015. "When I found out Suits had been picked up for our third season — which, at the time, felt like such a milestone — I totally splurged and bought the two-tone version. I had it engraved on the back, 'To M.M. From M.M.' and I plan to give it to my daughter one day." We're sure a son will happily take it too.
Where will they have the baby?
"Harry and Meghan are exploring options for the birth," a Kensington Palace source told Us Weekly. "No decision has been made yet on where the baby will be born. Meghan does not have to deliver at the Lindo Wing and she can deliver wherever she would like."
The wing was opened by the Queen Mother in 1937 so unless Meghan can't get to the London hospital, chances are, out of respect, it'll likely happen there.
Where will they raise their family?
"No one bothers them there," a palace source told Us Weekly. "They're excited to raise children in the country."
Once their firstborn is school-age, however, a move back to the city might be a given.
What will they name the baby?
Boys on the other hand, it would be AMAZING if they went with Spencer. That won't happen but, still. Charles and Philip will likely be part of it, though Arthur and James are traditional favourites. You know what won't be there, though? Thomas. Not gonna happen, Mr. Markle.
For now, he/she will be known as Baby Sussex.
