Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, already had '12-week scan'

Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank pose for the media in the

At present they have not revealed the due date, instead they have simply said "The Duchess of Sussex is expecting a baby in the Spring of 2019".

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have only just announced they are expecting a baby, but Brits are already taking bets on what the new royal will be called.

Arthur Edwards, a royal photographer, who has worked at The Sun and has known Harry since he was a baby, said he loves children and would love to have a few of his own.

He or she will also be a first cousin of Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

The news comes just hours after Harry and Meghan landed in Sydney at the beginning of their 16-day tour of Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific.

The official visit begins on Tuesday in Sydney, where they will be welcomed by Australia's Governor-General Peter Cosgrove and his wife Lynne.

"It's really a visit with the people", she told local network Nine on Monday.

Close family were able to congratulate the couple personally after being informed on Friday, the day Princess Eugenie married Jack Brooksbank.




Every time the Duchess of Cambridge has announced her pregnancy, speculation is rife that she is expecting twins, and Meghan's announcement has been no different.

The tour coincides with the Invictus Games in Sydney, which kicks off on Saturday and runs for a week.

The couple will visit Wellington, Abel Tasman National Park, Auckland and Rotorua during their New Zealand trip later this month.

After sailing Sydney Harbour and visiting the famous Bondi Beach, meeting flying doctors, attending functions at the Invictus Games and meeting Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison, they jet off to Fiji on October 23. The sporting event founded by Prince Harry in 2014 gives sick and injured service personnel and war veterans the opportunity to compete in sports such as wheelchair basketball and sitting volleyball.

Harry and Meghan's sojourn in the southern hemisphere will be more brief but will see the couple retracing parts of the path once trod by his father and mother. Britain's Queen Elizabeth II will be the child's great-grandmother.

Hundreds of well-wishers gathered with umbrellas outside the airport and Admiralty House in the hope of catching a glimpse of Harry and Meghan. The crowd cheered as the waving couple was driven through the gates of the harbor-side mansion.

The good news for the unborn child is that its gender won't come into consideration in the line of succession, unlike in times gone by.
