A long-awaited event is finally here. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have had their first child together. Ever since the couple tied the knot in May 2018, royal family fans and the media eagerly awaited a sign that a baby might be on the way. An official announcement came in October of the same year: Harry and Meghan were expecting. And now that the historic birth has taken place, here’s a recap of everything that’s happened so far – and what’s yet to come.
Yes, Harry and Meghan have finally become parents and shown off their brand-new arrival to the world. Right from the day that the royal couple announced their engagement, though, everyone knew that they wanted to have kids eventually. When the pair did their post-engagement interview with the BBC, they were asked if they hoped to have children. And Harry answered, “One step at a time, and hopefully we will start a family in the near future.”
The pregnancy announcement came just before Harry and Meghan travelled to Australia in October 2018 for their first tour as a married couple – and now the big day has finally arrived. The official Kensington Palace Twitter account broke the news, stating, “Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Sussex is expecting a baby in the Spring of 2019.”
