Eagle-eyed fans of the British royal family thought they spotted a hint of a baby bump when Meghan Markle attended the wedding of Princess Eugenie of York to wine merchant Jack Brooksbank on Friday October 12.

The rumour mill kicked into overdrive when the Duchess of Sussex and her husband, Prince Harry, arrived at at Sydney International Airport for their official tour of Australia, Fiji, the Kingdom of Tonga and New Zealand.

Markle was snapped carrying a pair of files in front of her stomach. Was Markle hiding the fact she had a bun in the oven, many on social media wondered. 

Britain's Duchess of Sussex, wife of Prince Harry, is pregnant with the couple's first child due in the spring of 2019.

It turns out they were right! Kensington Palace has announced that the couple are expecting their first child in 2019.

Twitter is celebrating the royal couple's happy news in the usual way: by having a good-natured chuckle.
