SNL: Hysterical Meghan McCain Defends Alabama Abortion Ban on ‘The View’

NBC

Saturday Night Live had so much fun mocking The View a few weeks ago that they came back for more in the Season 44 finale. And once again, Meghan McCain received the brunt of the jokes.

The hot topic of the day was Alabama’s “near total” ban on abortion, and the show’s co-hosts weighed in one at a time before Aidy Bryant’s McCain finally got her turn to defend the all-male Republican senators who voted for the draconian bill.

“OK, can I talk now?” she asked. “OK, I am the only daughter at this table. So I have to say, these senators are actually very good and fun guys.” As she continued to plead with her co-hosts to let her speak, Leslie Jones’ Whoopi Goldberg said, “No one else is talking.”

This is why Meghan Markle’s friend got emotional talking about her

And we get it.

Being a royal has its perks – the fashion, the princes, the tiaras, the castles – but it definitely also has its drawbacks, from the end of privacy to the dreaded rumour mill.

No one knows this more than Meghan Markle, who has endured an endless stream of online bullying since becoming a Duchess – everything from a supposed feud with Kate Middleton to racist abuse via social media.

She in particular has faced a lot of rumours around her character, from claims that the palace staff have employed nasty nicknames for her like ‘Me-Gain’ to slander from her extended Markle family, with the rumours said to have angered Prince Harry.

This week, a sneak peek of a Meghan and Harry CBS special came out, seeing Gayle King speaking to Meghan’s friends about the Duchess of Sussex.

The clips in question show Meghan’s make up artist and friend, Daniel Martin, opening up about the rumours, tearing up as he talked about them.

‘What’s so frustrating is that you hear these stories and there’s no truth to them,’ Daniel explained in the clip. ’It’s not the same person. In the years I’ve known her, the years I’ve worked with her, she’s never had a diva fit, never.’

Meghan and Harry Plus One will air on Friday on CBS at 8 pm ET.

This is why Archie Harrison has a different surname to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle

Words by Maisie Bovingdon 

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry welcomed their first child, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, into the world on May 6, but the family of three made their public appearance as a trio, and announced their son’s name, two days later.

There has been a lot of speculation over baby Sussex’s name, with some saying Archie is an acronym of Meghan’s real name Rachel, while Harrison is meant to stand for Harry’s son.

But then there’s the question surrounding Archie’s surname.  Prior to Archie’s birth Sussex Royal’s Instagram account addressed him as ‘Baby Sussex’, and it was believed that would be the surname he would take. So why is he a Mountbatten-Windsor and not Sussex?

Answer: It’s to do with his royal title.

Royal tradition has seen Prince Harry and Prince William take the title of their father’s Dukedom Wales when they were children, although this changed for William and his children when he married Kate Middleton, and the entire family took the surname Cambridge after his Dukedom.

Archie – who is seventh in line to take the throne – bucked the trend because he doesn’t have a royal title of His Royal Highness, which means he has to take the royal family’s official surname of Mountbatten-Windsor, the Mirror Online has reported.

The Queen could have given Archie the three initials HRH to add to his name, but didn’t, and if a royal descendant doesn’t take His or Her Royal Highness automatically use Mountbatten-Windsor.

While Harry has kept the surname Sussex, which the former Suits actress has also adopted, Meghan is still known by her maiden name Markle.

Glad we cleared that up!

New Parents Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Let Their Clothes Speak for Them

Just two days old, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor made his television debut swaddled in white cloth and matching his mother, Meghan Markle.

The new parent, also clad in cream, wore a sleeveless trench dress for the Windsor Castle press conference. Though the midi was first reported to be from Givenchy, the house that made Markle’s wedding dress, it was later clarified to come courtesy of London-based menswear designer Grace Wales Bonner.

Unlike her royal predecessors Kate Middleton and Lady Diana, who opted for bright, patterned frocks during their first post-birth appearances, Markle chose a pristine, clear eggshell hue.

Meghan McCain Blows Up Over Mueller Report; Whoopi Goldberg Cuts Her Off

The View

Returning from a week-long break, The View began Monday’s broadcast reacting to the recently released Mueller report. Naturally, that segment ended with Whoopi Goldberg cutting off conservative co-host Meghan McCain during a tirade claiming Democrats are going to get President Trump re-elected by “demonizing” all Republicans.

In response to Sen. Mitt Romney’s (R-UT) highly critical statement of Trump following the report—which found Trump repeatedly tried to obstruct the Russia probe—co-host Sunny Hostin said the Utah senator would still likely not vote for impeachment if it reached the Senate. Romney and other Republicans, he said, will ultimately refuse to hold Trump accountable.

Former Fox News host Abby Huntsman jumped in to debate both Hostin and co-host Joy Behar, noting that Trump’s base feels like he “got a big win” from the report because the media set an expectation that “he was going to be booted out.” Behar and Hostin, meanwhile, pointed out that Trump’s overall approval rating went down to 37 percent—and that’s where McCain jumped in for her take.

Here are all the ways Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have broken protocol with their royal baby

From water births to baby showers…

REX

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are expecting their first child together any day now, with the royal baby due this month.

The future arrival, referred to as the couple’s ‘little bump’, is already one of the most talked-about people in the world, with the public already speculating about everything from baby name predictions and god parent choices to nursery colour palettes.

However, Baby Sussex is most talked about for having rule-breaking parents, with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex proving unafraid to rip up the royal rulebook for the sake of their little one.

Here are all the ways Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are breaking protocol with the royal baby…

The privacy:

While most royal couples have held a sense of privacy when it has come to royal babies, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have broken tradition in how guarded they have been – and understandably so.

The royal couple have faced more online backlash and speculation than most, with Meghan in particular getting vilified during her pregnancy. It was hardly surprising therefore when the royal family announced that the couple would be celebrating in private.

‘Their Royal Highnesses have taken a personal decision to keep the plans around the arrival of their baby private,’ the statement read. ‘The Duke and Duchess look forward to sharing the exciting news with everyone once they have had an opportunity to celebrate privately as a new family.’

prince harry meghan markle

REX

The baby shower:

Meghan Markle’s New York baby shower made news for various reasons – partially for the star-studded guest list, but mostly for its break from royal tradition.

The 37-year-old’s ‘extravagant’ baby shower saw A-listers from Serena Williams to Amal Clooney congregate in The Mark hotel’s penthouse suite, something that the Queen was rumoured to have disapproved of. But while sources have insisted that the monarch wasn’t fazed, royal expert Victoria Arbiter among others explained that baby showers are ‘inappropriate’ for members of ‘The Firm’.

The babymoon:

It’s hardly surprising that a lot of the couple’s breaks from tradition are americanisms, with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex following a modern US trend this year, taking a babymoon before their arrival.

The couple reportedly had a lavish three-night babymoon at Hampshire’s Heckfield Place, spending some quality time together in the Georgian manor house.

‘Meghan is only a couple of weeks away from giving birth, so Harry really wanted to treat her,’ a friend told The Sun, going on to explain that their break was filled with eating Michelin starred food as a two and going for long walks through the 400 surrounding acres.

REX

The delivery team:

It has been reported that the former Suits actress is breaking tradition with her delivery team, opting out of using the Queen’s doctors, not wanting ‘men in suits’ delivering her baby, with royal gynaecologists, Alan Farthing and Guy Thorpe-Beeston having to take a backseat.

‘Meghan said she doesn’t want the men in suits. She was adamant that she wanted her own people,’ a source told the Daily Mail. ‘It did leave a few of us a little baffled’. Another source reportedly added: ‘It is slightly surprising. These people are the best of the best, and when it comes down to it, their role would actually be very limited in the birth itself, assuming all goes to plan.’

Meghan is reportedly opting out of having the two male gynaecologists leading her delivery team, apparently going for a woman instead, though it is not known who she is.

The home birth:

While home births used to be the royal tradition, the protocol for the past four decades has been a hospital birth, with Princess Diana starting the current tradition of posing for a photo post-birth on the Lindo Wing steps of the hospital.

Meghan however is set to break the tradition, with sources close to Vanity Fair claiming that the Duchess of Sussex is considering a home birth. And that’s not all, with Meghan said to be additionally considering a natural birth, with her mother Doria Ragland said to be involved in the birthing plan.

REX

The water birth:

Not only is Meghan apparently parting with four decades of tradition to have the royal baby at home, it has also been reported that she is planning on having a water birth, which would be a royal first.

‘Obviously Meg’s into all the homeopathy, so none of us were shocked when we found out she’d been talking about a water birth,’ a friend of Prince Harry reportedly told the Daily Star Sunday. ‘Apparently she wants it to be as natural as possible: no drugs, no caesareans and so on. It’s the next logical step from all her yoga, meditation and so on. Obviously when she goes into labour she might end up, medically speaking, having to go the more conventional route. But for now a water birth is absolutely her plan, is what they’re saying.’

The paternity leave:

Prince Harry is breaking tradition once more, following a modern post-birth approach rather than a traditional royal one. The Duke of Sussex is reportedly taking paternity leave to support his wife and spend some quality time with his newborn.

‘He doesn’t need to take paternity leave because he doesn’t work in the way most people do,’ a friend of Prince Harry’s told The Express. ‘But he thinks it’s a very modern Dad thing to do.’

REX

The manny:

While nannies are customary for royal babies, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are apparently going against tradition with their choices. According to The Express, the royal couple are taking a ‘modern American approach’ to the nanny they hire, reportedly opting for a ‘manny‘.

‘Hiring a “manny” is far more common in the U.S. — a nation that Meghan is more in tune with — than in the U.K. She’s keen to introduce the royal family to what she considers a more enlightened, modern American approach,’ a source explained. ‘[Prince Harry] and Meghan have discussed nannies and both have an open mind to a male nanny. They will definitely try to shortlist one.’

Congratulations again to these two royal rule breakers!

Did Prince Charles just accidentally reveal Meghan Markle’s due date?

Wait, what??

meghan markle difficulty

Words by Maisie Bovingdon 

Meghan Markle has set tongues wagging over her due date and when we can expect the royal baby to arrive.

Some believe she has already gone into labour, especially after her Suits dad recently jetted to London, but we will continue to question their every move because the Duchess of Sussex has insisted she will not publicly announce the arrival of her little one in the traditional way outside the Lindo wing.

Cue Prince Charles.  Prince Harry’s dad has seemingly hinted to Meghan’s due date and we are losing our minds!

Charles announced he and Duchess Camilla will be jetting off to Germany at the very start of May.

As part of their upcoming trip the duo will embark on a three-day tour across Berlin, Leipzig and Munich before heading back home to the UK.

The couple will be jetting off on May 7, royalcentral.co.uk reported.

This has led people to believe the royal baby will be here within the next three weeks, as the public insist Charles will not leave the country when his daughter-in-law goes into labour, and his grandchild arrives.

Charles and Meghan have a very special bond, with the pair often gushing over one another, with the proof of their strong relationship evident at the royal wedding last year, which saw Charles walk Meghan down the aisle on her wedding day in the absence of her biological father Thomas Markle.

It makes sense therefore that he would want to be nearby.

The countdown is on…

‘The View’s’ Meghan McCain Explodes at Sunny Hostin for Defending Julian Assange

The arrest of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange hit The View’s Meghan McCain hard on Thursday morning.

“The politics of this have always been completely hypocritical on both sides,” McCain said, noting that President Obama’s attorney general Eric Holder declined to prosecute Assange on the basis that WikiLeaks is essentially a “journalistic” organization.

“This is something that a lot of people who have put national security first, and I put myself in that category, have been warning about and warning about and warning about,” she continued, “and the only time the Democrats started caring is when it started affecting them politically and when Hillary Clinton’s emails were released.”

With the imminent arrival of the royal baby, all eyes are on Meghan Markle and Prince Harry right now, so much so that they just broke this world record. And it’s already clear the couple will do things a little differently to Kate and William.

To start off, their baby announcement will be very millenial, and the Duchess of Sussex apparently won’t pose outside the hospital with her newborn, like the Duchess of Cambridge did with Princes George and Louis and Princess Charlotte.

Instead, she and Harry are said to be taking a leaf out of the Swedish royal family’s book, by planning to give the world its first sight of their offspring… from the comfort of their own home.

The Swedish family often shares pictures on social media of their children at home, and it’s believe Meghan and Harry will use their new Instagram account to introduce their baby to the world.

As the baby isn’t a direct heir to the throne, there isn’t as much pressure for the couple to follow traditions, and this will give the happy parents a bit of time to recover at home before facing the public.

Either way, we can’t wait.

‘The View’s’ Meghan McCain Goes Off On Biden Accusers: ‘This Is a Hatchet Job’

“Joe Biden may swear off all physical contact by the time the week is over,” Joy Behar predicted on Thursday’s edition of The View before revealing that three more women have now come forward to say his public displays of affection made them uncomfortable.

In general, the hosts remained as defensive of Biden’s conduct as they did earlier this week, with only Sunny Hostin willing to acknowledge the “power dynamic” that would make it hard for a woman to tell the vice president of the United States to stop touching her in the moment.

Discussing potential Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg’s ascent in recent media attention, McCain cited an NBC News/WSJ poll that found voters are fairly comfortable with a gay man being president but only 25 percent of Americans are okay with a “socialist” occupying the White House.

Behar jumped in and suggested that “when they realize what that means” it will change, prompting the late John McCain’s daughter to retort that “people are smart” and declare that she is also smart.

Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle apparently have an ‘agreement’ to get along in public

Here’s what we know…

Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle have fallen victim to the rumour mill this year.

The two millennial Duchesses, both 37, have endured an endless stream of online bullying since becoming royals, particularly around the continuous speculation of a feud between the two women, something that according to sources has been blown way out of proportion.

It has since emerged that the royal feud actually had more to do with Prince William and Harry, rather than their wives, but according to royal expert Katie Nicholl, there is still tension between the two Duchesses, something they are keen to iron out.

REX

‘I do think there is some truth to there having been some tension — not just between the duchesses but between the dukes as well,’ Nicholl explained to Glamour. ‘As we all know, things can gather momentum pretty quickly. So while I think there’s been tension, I don’t believe there has been some feud.’

She continued: ‘I do know that Meghan and Kate have come to an agreement to get along, to make an effort, to be amiable and warm toward each other in public. They both realise it’s in neither of their interests to have these catfight headlines. It’s not what either of them want.’

REX

Last month, the two royal women shared a sweet public hug at Commonwealth Day, something that sources have explained wasn’t spontaneous, with Kate reportedly knowing that the cameras would be watching, wanting to send a positive message to the world before Meghan’s maternity leave.

‘They might not have a huge amount in common, but Kate has no issue with Meghan,’ a source told Vanity Fair. ‘She wants them to get along, not just for Harry’s sake but because two royal sisters-in-law at loggerheads wouldn’t be good, and Kate knows that. For Kate, it’s about keeping their relationship professional and putting on a show of togetherness.’

Well, thank goodness for that.

The Queen apparently shut down Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s plan to be ‘entirely independent’

Wait, what?

A lot has changed in the royal family over the past year, with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle undoubtedly going through the biggest transition of everyone.

The royal couple married in May last year, gained the title of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, and now with a royal baby on the way they have relocated, splitting from their shared household in Kensington Palace with the Cambridges and moving to Windsor to create their own set-up in Frogmore Cottage.

So began the rumours of a feud between Meghan and Kate and the fears that this could be the end of the Fab Four, something that insiders were quick to point out had been blown way out of proportion.

REX

The news that emerged this week has only confirmed that the decision has nothing to do with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and more to do with the Sussex family’s desire to be ‘entirely independent’ in general.

Yes, really. According to Roya Nikkhah, royal correspondent at The Sunday Times, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle wanted to be ‘entirely independent’ from Buckingham Palace – something that was reportedly vetoed by the Queen.

‘They wanted their household to be entirely independent of Buckingham Palace, but were told “no”,’ a royal source told Roya. ‘There is an institutional structure that doesn’t allow that kind of independence. The feeling is that it’s good to have the Sussexes under the jurisdiction of Buckingham Palace, so they can’t just go off and do their own thing.’

Despite reportedly wanting ‘total royal freedom’, Harry and Meghan’s official office will remain at Buckingham Palace while Frogmore Cottage will be their home.

To be honest with their past busy year and their little bump set to arrive next month, they’ve got enough to deal with!

Meghan and Harry split from Kate and William’s royal household

They’re going their separate ways

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will officially split from Kate Middleton and Prince William to start their own royal household.

Reports that the Sussexes and the Cambridges would go their separate ways first began last year, and now the Queen has agreed that a new household will be created for Meghan and Harry, but the new office of communications staff and courtiers at Buckingham Palace – which includes hiring new private secretaries – won’t be immediate.

The new set-up will be established in the spring, with a senior aide telling Harpers BAZAAR: ‘This isn’t immediate. It will be a step-by-step process.’

A statement from Kensington Palace said: ‘The Queen has agreed to the creation of a new Household for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, following their marriage in May last year.

‘The Household, which will be created with the support of The Queen and The Prince of Wales, will be established in the spring.

‘The Duke of Sussex currently has his own private office, which has been supporting The Duchess since Their Royal Highness’ engagement in November 2017.

‘This long-planned move will ensure that permanent support arrangements for The Duke and Duchess’s work are in place as they start their family and move to their official residence at Frogmore Cottage.’

It comes days after it was announced that Meghan’s assistant personal secretary, Amy Pickerell, has resigned.

At the time, a Kensington Palace source told BAZAAR: ‘Amy is leaving after the arrival of the baby. The Duchess will be very sad to see her go, but is excited for her as Amy has exciting plans ahead including spending some time abroad.

‘They will definitely stay in touch and Amy will be on hand for any advice and help that is needed in the future.’

Besides enjoying the opening number from Adam Lambert and Queen, there was one other moment that caught her attention. It happened to be one of the most political moments of the night when BlacKkKlansman director Spike Lee used his acceptance speech to call for change in 2020.

Markle chose a navy Alice + Olivia coat for the occasion, paired with black skinny jeans, an oversize gray scarf by Wilfred and black velvet slippers by footwear label Birdies.

But it wasn’t Meghan’s New York baby shower or the rumoured baby names that got the world talking about the royal couple this week.

Instead, it was the upcoming Lifetime TV show about their relationship, Harry & Meghan: Becoming Royal, or rather its casting, that became a talking point.

The sequel to last year’s Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance is set to tell the story of the couple’s first year of marriage, ‘pulling back the curtain to reveal the untold joys and challenges of life inside the Royal Family.

‘Beyond blending their families and cultures, Harry and Meghan’s core values are put to the test as they try to find the balance between honouring Royal tradition and staying true to their beliefs.’

But who is set to play the Duke and Duchess of Sussex?

Well, the actors have just been announced and the internet has a lot to say about it.

Meghan Markle is set to be played by Tiffany Marie Smith, known for her roles in Supernatural and Jane the Virgin and Prince Harry is set to be played by Charlie Field, seen before in Genius and Poldark.

‘Let us introduce you to the royal couple,’ Lifetime TV tweeted, before it was met by some controversial comments, mostly complaining that Charlie Field looked nothing like Prince Harry.

‘That doesn’t even look like Prince Harry though,’ one fan tweeted, while another wrote: ‘OMG! It’s worse than when they make a Madame Tussauds wax figure and it looks nothing like the actual person.’

Harry & Meghan: Becoming Royal will debut later this spring on Lifetime and we officially cannot wait.

George Clooney Defends Meghan Markle, Says She’s ‘Vilified’ By Press Like Princess Diana

(Photo Credit: PR Photos)

George Clooney has come to the defense of new royal Meghan Markle, claiming she is being “vilified and chased” in the same way Princess Diana was in the 1990s.

The Hollywood icon is reportedly a close friend of the Duchess of Sussex and was a guest at her wedding to Prince Harry in 2018. Speaking to Australian magazine Who, Clooney noted the consequences of the media scrutiny of the former actress.

“I do want to say, they’re just chasing Meghan Markle everywhere,” he said. “She’s a woman who is seven months pregnant and she has been pursued and vilified and chased in the same way that Diana was, and it’s history repeating itself. We’ve seen how that ends.”

Diana died in a car crash in a Paris tunnel in 1997 while being chased by paparazzi on motorcycles.

Markle was initially praised for bringing a bit of color and culture to the “stale” and “outdated” British royal family. But once she married her prince charming, the media turned on her and has become increasingly critical.

Last week one paper published a personal letter allegedly written by Markle to her estranged father in which she begged him to “stop lying….stop exploiting my relationship with my husband.”

Clooney has slammed this invasion of her privacy.

“I can’t tell you how frustrating that is, just seeing them broadcast a letter from a daughter to a father, she’s getting a raw deal there and I think it’€s irresponsible and I’€m surprised by that,” he said.

Meanwhile, one CNN contributor has noted that “the problem isn’t Meghan Markle. It’s the British monarchy.”

Kate Maltby writes “As Britain awaits the birth of Meghan’s first child with Prince Harry, it seems clear that the reality of a royal child with a black grandmother has brought to the fore prejudices that were more generally veiled around the announcement of her marriage.”

Most recently, Markle’s closest supporters spoke anonymously to People magazine about the “global bullying” the Duchess is receiving.

Meanwhile, a Washington Post article this week breaks down the racially-charged hate for the first biracial woman to marry into the House of Windsor, per CNN.

This Meghan Markle throwback picture is everything

So much love for this

REX

Meghan Markle was the most Googled person of 2018, and it’s hardly surprising – the world watches her every move. Since announcing that she is expecting her first child with Prince Harry, the spotlight has been well and truly on her. Everybody wants to know about her pregnancywhat they’ll call their little one, and whether or not she’s using vegan paint in the nursery (she is).

But since marrying into the royal family, Meghan has deleted all traces of her online presence. She ditched Instagram (although it glitched back in December and we got to see all of her selfies again for a few short minutes), and she also shut down her blog.

So while she’s living a social media-free existence, many of her fans have their eyes on the accounts of her friends and family. Just last month, a friend shared a photo of his brunch with Meghan and it made headlines.

And now, an old friend has shared a throwback picture that will satisfy every Meghan fan out there.

Actress Katharine McPhee used to perform in musicals alongside the Duchess, and she made a joke online about how their lives are basically the same.

‘Meghan and I did musicals together as kids,’ she wrote. ‘She grew up to be the Duchess of Sussex and I grew up to star on the West End, so same life if you ask me. #TBT.’

Lol.

Next month, Katharine will be starring in Waitress, a West End musical, so perhaps they could catch up over avo toast.

William’s Early Doubts About Meghan Markle Reported to Be Behind Royal Feud

Stephen Pond

The royal falling out between Meghan and Harry on one side and William and Kate on the other has its roots in an overly frank exchange of brotherly views, according to royal biographer and Vanity Fair columnist Katie Nicholl.

“William was quite concerned that the relationship had moved so quickly,” Nicholl says in a promo clip for TLC’s Kate v. Meghan: Princesses at War?, which will air at 10 p.m. ET Tuesday, “And being close to Harry, probably the only person close enough, [William said], ‘This seems to be moving quickly, are you sure?’”

Nicholl adds: “I think what was meant as well-intended brotherly advice just riled Harry. Harry is hugely protective of Meghan. He saw that as criticism. He interpreted that as his brother not really being behind this marriage, this union, and I don’t think things have been quite right ever since.”

Picture Proof! Katharine McPhee, Duchess Meghan ‘Did Musicals Together’ as Kids

Just two little girls with big dreams! Katharine McPhee posted a throwback picture on Thursday, January 31, that showed — and revealed — that she and  Duchess Meghan go way back before fame.

“Meghan and I did musicals together as kids,” the American Idol alum, 34, captioned the old photo that shows both she and the Suits alum, 37, decked out in green theatre costumes with bright red lipstick.

McPhee added: “She grew up to be the Duchess of Sussex and I grew up to star on the West End, so same life if you ask me. #TBT.”

Fellow Idol alum Mandisa Hundley could barely contain her excitement in the comments section of the post. “What?! That’s crazy!” the Christian singer, 42, gushed. While some followers asked McPhee to spill the beans on what musical they starred in together, others were curious for more information on their friendship.

And though both McPhee and Meghan’s past work helped lead them to successful careers, their lives now are significantly different.

Meghan — who starred on the hit USA drama series from 2011 to 2018 — is now part of the British royal family after marrying Prince Harry in May 2018. She and the former military pilot, 34, announced in October 2018 that they’re expecting their first child together.

“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,” a statement from Kensington Palace read at the time. “Their Royal Highnesses have appreciated all of the support they have received from people around the world since their wedding in May and are delighted to be able to share this happy news with the public.”

The Waitress star, for her part, is in the wedding planning process with fiancé David Foster. The record producer popped the question to McPhee in July 2018 during a romantic Italian getaway. “David and Katharine are leaning toward a small wedding,” an insider told Us Weekly earlier this month, noting that nothing is for certain yet. “They haven’t done any major planning yet, or even set a date.”

Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton Reveal the New Rules of Royal Dressing

Photo illustration by The Daily Beast

What does Meghan Markle wear when she’s at home, baking her famous banana bread or roasting a chicken with Prince Harry, as the couple is known to do? It’s hard to imagine Meghan kicking back in a pair of old sweats and a Northwestern hoodie. Maybe her loungewear of choice is somewhat athleisure-ly—after all, in 2015 the former actress did declare “Yoga is my thing.”

It’s understandable if you’re bored at the thought of Markle looking a lot like you do, watching true crime on a weeknight in her telltale messy bun. We like it when Markle, per her tabloid moniker, sparkles.

This week, the Duchess of Sussex reminded us that she can do just that when, at five months pregnant, she stepped out in a head-to-toe sequined gown by Roland Mouret.

Royals – they’re just like us!

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are undoubtedly one of the most talked-about couples in the world, and from their sweet PDA to their willingness to break royal protocol, they never fail to make viral news.

The past few months however have been dominated by their future arrival, with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex expecting their first child this Spring, with fans speculating about an ‘April’ due date.

Fans are already making predictions on god parents, names and genders, but it’s the nursery preparations that have got everyone’s attention this week.

Royal watchers have been waitings for details, and finally royal correspondent Katie Nicholl is giving some answers.

‘According to sources who are helping with [their new home] renovations, the nursery itself is going to be very modern,’ Katie reportedly told Entertainment Tonight. ’Don’t expect to see any baby pink or baby blue.’

She continued: ‘Apparently, it’s going to be a monochrome palette — whites and greys, I’m told, will be the colour theme for baby Sussex’s nursery.

‘They’ve decided not to find out the sex,’ she then went on to explain.

This isn’t the first surprising move for the royals with regards to their baby, with Harry and Meghan also reportedly opting against welcoming their new arrival in the traditional Lindo Wing of St Mary’s hospital.

As for the rest of the details around the future royal baby, it looks like we’ll have to wait and see.

Meghan Markle just opened up about her due date

Oooh…

It’s that strange bit between Christmas and New Years where you aren’t quite sure what to do/who you are/when you should finally get changed out of pyjamas. We’ve overdone the leftover sandwiches, we have watched every Netflix Christmas film and we’ve done all our post-Christmas sales shopping from the comfort of the sofa.

But what are the royals up to?

This year, the family went to Sandringham where they enjoyed a huge feast (just take a look at what’s on the table for the royal Christmas dinner) and Prince George and Princess Charlotte broke royal tradition in the cutest way.

And we also found out that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s first child may be arriving a lot sooner than we all thought.

Over Christmas, Meghan went for a Christmas Day stroll with Harry and her in-laws, Kate Middleton and Prince William. She stopped for a chat with some people in the crowd who were waiting to see the royals, and when on fan asked if she was excited to welcome their first child, Meghan reportedly said: ‘We’re nearly there.’

When they made the announcement, Kensington Palace revealed that the little one is expected to arrive in Spring, which many have taken to mean any time between March and May.

Could Meghan be suggesting that baby Sussex will be here a lot sooner than we all initially thought?

Meghan Markle And Michelle Obama Held A Secret ‘Power Meeting In London

(Photo Credit: PR Photos )

Meghan Markle reportedly held a secret “power meeting” with Michelle Obama to discuss  “shared” causes, including promoting girls education around the world.

The dynamic duo met Monday night in London, while the former First Lady was in town to promote her new memoir, “Becoming.”

Per the Standard:

A friend who was also at the event said Meghan “had a long private audience with Michelle. They spoke at length about the importance of supporting and empowering women across all cultures and communities. They also talked about shared experiences of pregnancy and raising children, plus shared causes including girls’ education.”

This encounter comes fresh off the advice the forever FLOTUS publicly shared with the newest member of the Royal Family.

“Like me, Meghan probably never dreamt that she’d have a life like this, and the pressure you feel — from yourself and from others — can sometimes feel like a lot,” Obama said in Good Housekeeping’s January issue. “So my biggest piece of advice would be to take some time and don’t be in a hurry to do anything.”

Obama previously recalled the protocol that she was told to follow when she and Barack Obama made their last official visit to Windsor Castle in 2016. The couple was told they were going to land at the castle in Marine One and then be driven by the Queen, according to the British Press Association.

“People are talking to other people and then you’re briefed, and you’re told, ‘This is going to happen and don’t stand there and don’t touch there and this is precisely what is going on,’” she said.

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex Salutes Givenchy’s Clare Waight Keller at Fashion Awards

LONDON — Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex took Fashion Award-goers in London by surprise when she took to the Royal Albert Hall stage on Monday evening to present Givenchy’s Clare Waight Keller, the designer behind her wedding dress, with the British women’s wear designer of the year award.
“It’s such a pleasure to be here, celebrating British fashion and British designers in my new home of the U.K. I’m seeing many familiar faces, many of you I’ve known for quite a while,” said Markle, who wore an elegant one-shoulder Givenchy gown and clutched onto her baby bump throughout her speech.
She spoke about women empowering each other through the clothes they wear and fashion’s shifting culture: “It was cool to be cruel, now it’s cool to be kind,” she said.

“When you choose to wear a certain designer, we’re not just a reflection of their creativity and their vision but we’re also an extension of their values,” added the new royal, lauding Keller’s “creativity and incredible kindness.”
In turn, a very shocked Keller thanked Markle for trusting her in such an important moment in her life.

You’re probably not all that surprised to learn that these are the most popular royals. The top spots go to Prince Harry, the Queen herself, and Prince William – but don’t worry, Prince George got a place in the top ten, too (and well deserved, we might add).

So in light of the fact that Harry and William are fan faves, you’ll probably be interested to know that they are besties behind the scenes, too – despite what many of the headlines have suggested over the past few weeks.

The brothers are closer than ever, and they even keep in touch via a group chat. No, really. They’ve got a thread going on.

And as if we needed any more proof that the royals are just like us really, it turns out that the fab four use a family chat to keep up with each other. Apparently, William, Kate, Harry, and Meghan are ‘all on a family text chain,’ according to a source close to the royal family who spoke to Us Weekly.

What do you reckon they talk about? Do they communicate through memes and gifs and emojis? Do they share their thoughts on the latest episode of EastEnders? We need to know.

While it’s all very lovely and we can only imagine what royal lols go on in their private messages, we have one question – why isn’t the Queen invited to get in on the action? She’d be an absolute joker, we imagine. Have you read about her Christmas present rules?

The source also touched on recent reports that there is friction between the Duchess of Cambridge and the Duchess of Sussex, quashing the rumours once and for all.

‘Kate is lovely. She’s British, she’s reserved. You have to break through that armour,’ they told the publication.

‘Kate doesn’t warm up to people too quickly. It takes some time for her to become comfortable and trusting for anyone in the outside world.’

So there you have it.

Meghan and Kate to Spend Christmas Together as Palace Fights Feud Rumor

PAUL GROVER

Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle will spend Christmas together at Sandringham this year, sources tell The Daily Beast, as the palace struggles to contain an explosive story of a rift at the heart of the royal family.

Despite rumors that Kate and William would skip Christmas at Sandringham this year in favor of spending the holidays with Kate’s parents, it has emerged that both the Sussexes and the Cambridges will attend church with the queen at Sandringham.

The Daily Beast suggested this weekend that “appearing together on Christmas Day will be a useful way for the Sussexes and the Cambridges to telegraph that there is peace between the two families, or at least a Christmas Armistice. For one of them not to show up would be a declaration of civil war.”

You have to see the make-up bag Meghan took on the royal tour

It’s GENIUS

Meghan Markle’s first royal tour with Prince Harry might be over, but that doesn’t mean we’re done talking about the outfits/cute moments/baby news. (In case you missed it, here’s why they chose to announce the pregnancy in Australia.)

When you’re packing for a trip as big as, say, an official tour of four countries, your luggage is a huge part of the organisation when it comes to managing clothes, hair, make-up, etc.

We’ve snuck a peek at the make-up bag Meghan took with her and boy, it is GOOD. But first, a little backstory.

By now we’re all aware that Meghan’s good friend and MUA Daniel Martin was behind her make-up look for the royal wedding back in May.

Martin has recently launched his own (dreamy) vanity case with fashion label Cuyana, and it’ll have you questioning everything you thought you knew about make-up storage. Spoiler alert: ‘I actually gave Meghan and Harry this bag before their trip,’ he revealed in a recent interview.

So, why do we keep wanging on about how great these bags are? We’ll let Martin explain in his own words.

‘A lot of girls I know carry bags that don’t fit their foundation. Or if it does, it’s laying on its side or it’s in a flimsy kind of case,’ he explained to Allure. ‘So I took my Dior Undercover Foundation, which is a pretty standard height for foundation, and measured it from that.

‘If the bottle could stand tall, then you could fit a lot more things into the bag. I wanted to create a bag that you could put your full face in, that’s foundation, concealer, bronzer or blush, a small eyeshadow quad, and lipsticks.’

The bags have a larger base to make sure things can stand up properly, a removable inside wallet and come in five different colours. But they’re not just great for make-up, they’re perfect for skincare and grooming products, too (hence why Harry also has one).

Buy now

‘For guys, our stuff tends to be a bit bigger, whether it’s a deodorant stick or a cleanser. So I really thought about how versatile this bag could be, regardless of what you want to put in it.

‘The most important thing, though, was that whatever you had inside could stand up.’ See what I mean? Genius.

The Vanity Sets retail for $ 110 but, good news, they ship to the UK. We’ll take ten, please.

By wearing these jeans, Meghan changed the life of 30 women

While some people might think the cost of Meghan Markle’s Australian wardrobe might have been high, you can’t deny that the Duchess is great at showing her support for emerging brands and designers.

Plus, Meghan is an advocate of sustainable and ethical fashion, which she proved by wearing one particular pair of jeans more than five times on the tour.

Said jeans are by Australian brand Outland Denim, who use organic cotton and natural vegetable dyes to make their jeans.

What a week for Outland Denim! Never could we have imagined the overwhelming support shown to our brand, our team and our mission since the Duchess of Sussex wore our Harriet jean not once but multiple times during her stay in Australia for the Invictus Games. This quiet, dignified, but determined support for our brand – and the humanitarian cause it represents – means the world to us, to our beautiful seamstresses, and to the 15 young women who are now feeling the empowerment of employment thanks to the "Markle Effect"!

But more importantly, by wearing them, Meghan changed the life of 30 women. You see Outland Denim employ women in Cambodia who have been enslaved or sexually exploited.

Once the Duchess was spotted wearing the black Harriet jeans, these sold out within 48 hours, resulting in a massive 640% increase in sales.

Outland Denim has said that as a result, it can employ up to 30 more women.

In an Instagram post, it said, ‘Thanks to the Duchess’ choice in denim, we’re pleased to announce that it will be possible to employ a further 15 to 30 seamstresses in our Cambodian production house in the coming weeks, and the recruitment process has already begun’.

Another one read, ‘This quiet, dignified, but determined support for our brand – and the humanitarian cause it represents – means the world to us, to our beautiful seamstresses, and to the 15 young women who are now feeling the empowerment of employment.’

Excellent news indeed.

The View’s Meghan McCain Tried To Come For Stacey Abrams On Gun Laws, Promptly Gathered

2018 Essence Festival New Orleans

Source: Derrick Salters/WENN.com / WENN

Meghan McCain didn’t know who she was dealing with. The View host questioned Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams about her stance on gun control and the Spelman and Yale grad swiftly and eloquently shut down the late Sen. McCain’s daughter. 

McCain asked Abrams, who is proud to have an F-rating from the NRA, if she was in favor of banning at infamous AR-15 assault rifle in the wake of the synagogue massacre in Pittsburgh. Abrams ably answered the leading question.

“So let’s be clear, I am not anti-gun. My great-grandmother taught me how to shoot when I was growing up in Mississippi,” said Abrams. “I like trap shooting, I like target shooting. I don’t hunt because I mostly eat chicken and that just seems mean.”

That latter portion of her answer elicited laughs, and McCain, who was trying to give the impression that Abrams wants to storm in and take everyone’s guns away, just wasn’t ready.

She added, “However, I know that the most responsible gun owners understand that they have the responsibility for the firearms, and making sure that only responsible people have those firearms. That’s I why I believe in a background check.”

She also got cheers when she said she believed weapons of mass destruction, like the AR-15, should not be in civilian hands.

Watch Abrams’ gathering, and her assertion that she believes in the 2nd amendment, in the clip below.

Meghan Markle Cradles Baby Bump as She Meets Members of the Public with Prince Harry in Auckland

The weather finally cleared up for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle as they greeted fans in Auckland, New Zealand.

After a busy day that included dedicating an area of native bush to the Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy, participating in “welly wanging” contest with local children and visiting a charity that supports children who have a parent in prison, the royal couple met members of the public.

As they interacted with fans, the royal parents-to-be received several gifts from the crowd including an All Blacks — the country’s football team — onesie, a tui bird soft toy and even a rain boot, or a Wellington as locals call the footwear, stuffed with roses.

Meghan, 37, stepped out in a beige Brandon Maxwell dress with matching Stuart Weitzman pumps and a beige Burberry Bishop trench coat.

The dress clung to her baby bump which she cradled as she walked along with Harry, 34,  by her side. For their meet and greet, the prince wore a navy suit with a white button-down shirt underneath.

The duo made sure to talk to as many royal fans as possible — especially the younger members of the crowd.

Meghan invited a little girl through the crowd control fence and was rewarded with a sweet stuffed toy of a native tui bird.

Harry was particularly enamored with a little baby and reached out and gave the child what appeared to be a little tickle.

“Walkabouts,” as the royal meet and greets are commonly referred to, have provided some of Meghan and Harry’s most candid moments of the royal tour. Shortly after arriving to New Zealand, Meghan comforted a sobbing teenage fan by holding her hands.

One young royal fan who was wearing a shirt that read “Girls Can Do Anything” caught Harry’s eye in Sydney — so much that he just had to call his wife over to meet her.

“We feel she looks a bit like you,” a person in the crowd is heard telling Meghan in a video posted by Harry Meghan Updates on Instagram.

The Duchess of Sussex replied, “I was literally about to say the same thing!”

Harry then took a fan’s phone to snap a photo of Meghan with her mini-me —  a rare move for the prince, who usually adheres to the royal protocol of no autographs or selfies.

Earlier in the day, the royal couple bonded with local children from the environmental education group, “Trees of Survival,” and joined the kids for a “welly wanging” contest.

The objective of the game was to throw a Wellington boot — which New Zealanders refer to as “Wellies” — as far as possible. (Wellingtons are equivalent to what Americans call rainboots, Bean Boots, or duck boots.)

The children cheered as Meghan showed off her strength and won the competition, throwing her red-and-white polka-dotted boot approximately a meter away from Harry’s blue boot. For the win, the Duchess was rewarded with a rainboot-shaped trophy.

Adding to the couple’s growing list of baby gifts, Meghan and Harry were also given a small pair of green and white boots for their newest family member.

Later on in the day, the Royals joined New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern in Auckland for a visit to Pillars, a charity that supports children who have a parent in prison by providing special mentoring programs.

Meghan and Harry already had a special connection to the charity: as a wedding present to the couple, the government of New Zealand gifted $ 5,000 to Pillars. During Tuesday’s visit, they met some of the children who directly benefited from the funding.

The royal couple started their whirlwind 16-day tour Down Under in Sydney, with a number of day trips to other areas of the country, and kicked off the 2018 Invictus Games before spending a few days in Fiji and Tonga.

They returned to Sydney for the end of the Invictus Games before heading to New Zealand to wrap their tour.

Meghan and Harry will wrap up their busy day at a reception hosted by the Prime Minister at the Auckland War Memorial Museum.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle broke away from tour for a mini moon

These two!

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle set off on their royal tour this month, with the couple currently on the New Zealand leg of their trip, having already visited Australia, Fiji and the kingdom of Tonga.

But with a jam-packed schedule of official events and appearances, it’s hardly surprising that Harry and Meghan haven’t had much downtime – something they surely need, especially following the news of their future baby, expected in Spring 2019.

It has recently emerged however that the now Duke and Duchess of Sussex did actually escape for a mini moon on their tour and we didn’t even notice.

The royal couple reportedly took some time away during their royal tour of Fiji, escaping for a ‘mini moon’ at the Vatuvara Private Islands Resort on Kaibu Island, before returning to royal duties in Tonga.

Meghan has opened about her pregnancy during the tour, explaining how it has made her feel jet lagged, so here’s hoping she managed to catch up on some sleep!

Luckily, it looks like the mini moon did the trick, with the royal couple seeming relaxed and restored when they arrived in Tonga.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are currently in New Zealand – and people are talking about them more than ever, especially after Harry let his nickname for his future baby slip!

These two!

Here’s hoping they get to have another mini moon soon!

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are currently undertaking their first official long royal tour, journeying through Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and the Kingdom of Tonga together.

To say that they have been a hit would be a huge understatement, with the royal newlyweds making viral news every day, from their sweet comments about their future arrival to their warm greetings with members of the public.

From Meghan staying up late to bake banana bread for their host family to Prince Harry having his beard stroked by a very young fan, these two might have accomplished one of the most successful (and friendly) royal tours ever.

It’s hardly surprising therefore that there is a high demand for the royal couple to visit other countries too, with many questioning when a tour around the United States would take place.

But why the push back? Well, for their baby!

Prince Harry, Duchess Meghan Are Good Sports at Wheelchair Basketball Game in Australia

A vision of good sportsmanship! Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan looked fresh-faced and game ready on Saturday, October 27, during day 12 of their first international tour together.

The pair — who kicked off the royal adventure on October 15 just hours prior to the news that Meghan, 37, is pregnant and expecting her first child with Harry, 34 — got into the spirit of the Invictus Games during a wheelchair basketball game in Sydney, Australia.

The former actress wore a belted maroon peplum top by Scanian Theodore, black Outland pants and black Sarah Flint heels for the occasion. Meanwhile, the prince sported a black Invictus Games shirt and gray pants.

The couple presented each member of the winning Team USA with gold medals after the final match, with the Netherlands coming in second place and England finishing third.

While the duke and duchess sat alongside Prime Minster Scott Morrison and Defense Minister Christopher Pyne at the game, David Beckham, an Invictus Games ambassador, was also spotted taking in the match with his 16-year-old son Romeo. The former soccer pro and Victoria Beckham attended the royals’ May 19 nuptials.

Boy Who Made Meghan Markle a Macaroni Necklace Now Taking Jewelry Orders from Around the World

Meghan Markle is known for being a style icon, even when it comes to the homemade accessories she wears.

While greeting fans in Melbourne during the Royal Tour last week, Meghan was approached by 6-year-old Gavin Hazelwood, who gifted the Duchess a homemade pasta necklace. The royal, 37, instantly put the adorable necklace on, and now Gavin is becoming just as well-known with jewelry order requests coming in from around the world.

“We had a lot of people saying to Gavin, you should make more, you’ll make lots of money from this, everybody will want to buy her necklace,” his mom, Rowan Hazelwood, told Network 10, as reported by CBS News.

The family decided to create a website for Gavin, where fans can purchase the dinosaur-shaped pasta with gold paint necklaces for $ 20. The kindergartener has since received orders from Australia, the U.K. and the U.S.

Gavin intends on donating all of his profits to a stillborn research charity, CBS reported, as his mother previously lost a baby girl.

“She’s a part of our lives still, even for the kids, and they talk to her every day,” she told Network 10.

The Melbourne native, who was adorably dressed as a Qantas pilot, crafted the ribbon and gold-painted pasta necklace earlier that morning after telling his mom he was feeling sick so he could skip school and make the necklace for Meghan.

“I did the pasta with gold paint. Mum helped me thread through the necklace,” he told Fairfax Media.

After receiving the gift, Meghan immediately put it on over her navy Dion Lee dress. The royal mom-to-be, who is expecting her first child with Prince Harry, proudly wore the gift during the rest of the outing until she arrived at a formal reception inside Government House.

Meghan often wears jewelry that has sentimental meaning.

Earlier in the tour, she wore butterfly earrings that once belonged to Princess Diana. And when Prince Harry and Meghan first began dating, she was spotted wearing a gold, personalized necklace with the letters M and H on it.

Why Meghan Markle’s bump appears to be bigger in the evening

Oh…

All eyes are currently on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle as they prepare to welcome their first child together in the Spring.

The couple announced that they are expecting via Kensington Palace’s Twitter account earlier this month, and have since gone on to discuss their happy news – from Meghan’s pregnancy symptoms to the gender that Prince Harry is hoping for.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex touched down in Tonga today as part of their 16-day royal tour, having visited Australia and Fiji over the last couple of weeks.

But during their time in Fiji, many noticed that Meghan’s baby bump suddenly appeared noticeably bigger.

At a reception dinner hosted by the President of Fiji, Meghan wore a gorgeous blue Safiyaa Ginkgo cape dress and was photographed cradling her bump.

It left those on Twitter questioning whether the more visible bump was the result of her choice of clothing – but experts have revealed that there is something more to it.

Doula Susannah Birch explained to Trimester Talk that this could be down to tired abdominal muscles.

She said: ‘At night time, your abdominal muscles are tired from holding your bump [and they] loosen as they grow more tired, which allows your bump to sit out further and appear larger.’

A second expert has also offered their opinion. Obstetrician and gynaecologist Dr Joseph Sgroi told Mamamia: ‘A lot of women will say that towards the end of the night they do feel a lot more bloated, and that bloating sensation is a combination of them obviously having eaten over the course of the day.

‘One of the things progesterone does, which is the primary hormone that’s secreted from the placenta, is it actually slows down gut motility, so it slows down the transit time from when you eat something to when it comes out the other end.’

So now you know.

Meghan Mania Sweeps Australia

SYDNEY — At the halfway point of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s 16-day tour of Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific, the duchess momentarily hit the pause button — leaving Prince Harry to fly solo for several engagements on Sunday and Monday, citing his wife’s fatigue as she juggles their hectic schedule with the first trimester of her pregnancy.
The duchess isn’t the only one catching her breath.
A number of Australian designers are still reeling from the “Meghan effect,” after she showcased as many as five local labels in her tour wardrobe last week, alongside international brands such as Brandon Maxwell, Jason Wu, Roksanda Ilincic, Stuart Weitzman, Manolo Blahnik, Gucci and Birks.
On Saturday, the duchess wore a black coat dress by London-based New Zealander Emilia Wickstead, to lay a wreath at the ANZAC Memorial in Hyde Park. She then changed into a white Altuzarra jacket, black Mother Denim jeans and black Invictus Games-branded shirt, to watch the first competition of Prince Harry’s international sporting competition — in which 500 injured military veterans from 18 countries will compete this week in Sydney.
For the Games opening ceremony on Saturday evening, she changed into a navy Stella McCartney dress and matching coat by Gillian Anderson

Prince Harry just made a very public speech about Meghan Markle and their baby

And it’s too much!

Ever since Prince Harry showed off his parenting skills, jokily scolding a little boy for pulling his wife’s hair and then catching two-year-old Emily Henson stealing his popcorn at last year’s Invictus Games, fans have been waiting for the 33-year-old Prince to become a father himself.

And now it seems the time is here.

Yes, after tying the knot in May, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced last week that they were expecting a baby, arriving in Spring 2019.

The news broke soon after the royal couple’s arrival in Australia for their royal tour, with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex reportedly telling the Queen, Prince Philip, Prince Charles, Prince William and Kate Middleton at Princess Eugenie’s wedding.

Following the official statement by Kensington Palace, the future parents have spoken out about their excitement.

‘Thank you for the welcome you have given Meghan and I over the last few days,’ Prince Harry announced in his speech at the Invictus Games opening ceremony. ‘I have been so proud to be able to introduce my wife to you and we have been so happy to be able to celebrate the personal joy of our newest addition with you all.

Unsurprisingly the comments have set the internet alight with excitement, and it’s not the first comments the couple have made about their future arrival, while on tour.

While visiting a family in Dubbo, New South Wales, Meghan is said to have opened up about her pregnancy with mother Emily Carroll, who has 13-month-old daughter Ruby.

‘Meghan told me that she’s feeling pretty good so far, which is great, and that she’s running on adrenalin,’ Emily explained. ‘She said they’re doing 76 engagements in 16 days, with maybe one rest in the middle.

Emily continued: ‘She’s made for this royal business, isn’t she? They’re both great with kids.’

‘We also genuinely couldn’t think of a better place to announce the, er, upcoming baby,’ Prince Harry said during a speech last week. ‘Whether it’s a boy or a girl. So thank you very, very much.’

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Make a Quick Outfit Change to Hit the Beach in Australia

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are keeping the beach clean — and looking stylish while doing it!

The couple, who announced Monday that they are expecting their first child, continued the third day of their royal tour by visiting Albert Park Primary School and also the beach in Melbourne, Australia.

Before their final outings of the day, the pair made quick outfit changes from their earlier looks. They did not, however, choose the most practical beach attire.

Meghan, 37, ditched her navy dress and matching suede heels for a black Club Monaco “Miguelina” dress with her trusty black Rothy’s flats — a shoe she has previously switched into during their tour.

She did, however, kept on her Martin Grant trench coat which has been a fashion staple for her during their royal tour.

Meanwhile, Harry, 34, — who matched his wife at their prior events in a navy suit with a white button-down shirt — switched into a pair of black pants and a gray jacket.

The royal ditched his tie and opted to leave his shirt collar buttoned.

RELATED: Royals Mania! Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Treated Like Pop Stars as They Arrive in Melbourne

The couple first met with student Sustainability Leaders and Waste Warriors at Albert Park Primary School and learned how the sustainability programs are integrated into the curriculum, before being greeted by many of the school’s younger students.

At one stop along the school’s pathway, Harry sweetly asked a group of students — who were lined up outside excitedly squealing, waving, and yelling their names — if this is where they went to school. One child ignored the question and instead, simply told the prince that he resembled their uncle.

Keeping with their sustainable theme, the pair rode public transport to their next stop, hopping on one of Melbourne’s iconic trams for a short ride from the school to South Melbourne Beach.

As they left, onlookers waved from the crowd, while some even stood on top of their roofs across the street to catch a glimpse of the royal couple.

Onboard the tram, the royals interacted with more schoolchildren during the quick ride. A few minutes later, they arrived at the beach where they were welcomed by another large set of excited onlookers.

As they made their way onto the sand, the couple was greeted by volunteers from BeachPatrol and local children from the area for a beach cleanup. The organization dedicates itself to keeping Melbourne’s shores free of litter to reduce the negative impact of litter on the marine environment and food chain as well as provide a safe environment for the public to enjoy their local beach.

During the outing, Harry and Meghan were also introduced to four lifeguards from the beach.

But the couple didn’t stay much longer after that and finally headed back towards land.

After their departure, one teen — who introduced himself as 15-year-old Milo Thompson — said he was especially impressed with the royal couple’s demeanor during his interaction with them on the sand.

“I was expecting to introduce myself and be real proper,” he said of meeting Prince Harry. “But he came and introduced himself and was calm and collected, and paying a lot of attention to us… they’re down-to-earth and fun to be around.”

Earlier in the day, Meghan and Harry met fans in Melbourne, gathered on the grounds of the city’s Royal Botanic Gardens. One lucky young woman even got a giant hug from the prince, causing her to break down in (very happy!) tears.

After greeting fans, Meghan and Harry headed to a reception with local government.

While there, the royal couple was shown several sporting demonstrations, including a student-designed Formula 1 racing project, which gave Meghan a fright during its incredibly loud launch.

“I did not expect that!” she exclaimed of their speedy takeoff while laughing at her own jumpy reaction.

Meanwhile, Harry looked as happy as a child in a toy store, beaming at the cars and laughed at his wife’s startled reaction. “Wasn’t quite expecting that,” he joked to her. Harry even fist-pumped when they were first invited to try the cars.

While the boys showed off their car project, outside the girls showed off their sporting skills. Meghan met with ambassadors from This Girl Can, which is an organization focused on encouraging women to take up sports.

During the outing, Meghan demonstrated her athleticism, tossing around an AFL football and showing off her best hand-passing skills.

They were then treated to a cooking demonstration showcasing native Australian food at a social enterprise restaurant which provides guidance and opportunity to young Aboriginal people who are in need of a fresh start in life.

During the demo led by Executive Chef Greg Hampton, Meghan and Harry were able to taste some fresh herbs from the area.

Tomorrow, the couple will head back to Sydney for the weekend, before making a stop at Frasier Island on Monday.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have received their first baby gift, and it’s very appropriate

You’ll never guess what it is…

Less than 48 hours after the announcement that Meghan Markle is pregnant and the couple have already received a gift for their first child.

Kensington Palace announced on Monday that the baby is due in spring 2019 – although people already reckon they’ve worked out Meghan’s due date.

While the royal family found out the news on Friday, it’s thought that Meghan shared her pregnancy with this person a couple of months before.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex had a jam-packed first day of their royal tour in Sydney, meeting Invictus games representatives as well as visiting a zoo and the Royal Opera House.

At the beginning of the day the pair were presented with a cuddly kangaroo by Australia’s Governor General, Sir Peter Cosgrove, to which Meghan exclaimed, ‘Our first baby gift!’

Later they also received a tiny pair of Ugg boots that we’re sure will come in handy – although Meghan already has a gift for her future daughter, which she’s had for years.

At Taronga Zoo the couple also met a pair of baby koalas that had been named after them in honour of their nuptials, according to The Sun. We’re jealous.

‘We genuinely couldn’t think of a better place to announce the upcoming baby, be it a boy or a girl,’ Harry said of the baby news.

The Suits alum, 37, sparked rumors with the outfit she selected to wear for Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank’s wedding at Windsor Castle in England on Friday, October 12. Meghan stepped out in a navy dress by Clare Waight Keller (the same Givenchy designer who created her wedding gown), but she covered it up with a long, loose-fitting coat that she kept buttoned even while inside the church.

“Judging by the fact that she’s wearing a heavy coat indoors, Meghan Markle is either pregnant or the type to get chilly easily,” one Twitter user remarked. Another tweeted, “Something about Meghan’s outfit choice makes me think she’s pregnant and hiding a baby bump. It’s so conservative.”

This is not the first time in recent weeks that fans have wondered about a potential pregnancy. While attending the 100 Days to Peace Gala in London on September 6, Meghan wore a royal blue Jason Wu dress with ruffles over the stomach area. A Kensington Palace source blamed the rumors on “an unflattering dress and wind” at the time, telling Us that the former actress and her husband, Prince Harry, are focusing on “their official work … before starting a family.”

That said, Meghan and Harry, 34, do have children on their brains. A source reveals exclusively in the new issue of Us Weekly that the couple are “trying for a baby,” and both want “at least three kids.”

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who wed in May, are scheduled to arrive in Sydney, Australia, early next week for their first royal tour as husband and wife.

Sexy, Classic, Surprising: Inside Meghan Markle’s Royal Wardrobe

It took Meghan Markle only two seconds to close her own car door on Wednesday. But the moment of relatability left many Markle stans clutching their imitation Aquazzura pumps in celebration. Deal or No Deal-briefcase-girl-turned-royalty… they’re just like us! Except for, you know, the million-dollar wardrobe.

Before closing her own door, Markle had exited the her car in a long-sleeved, black Givenchy number that would come off a bit too Wednesday Addams save for a strategically placed skirt slit. For her first solo outing as a royal, Markle oozed the breezy confidence she’s known for.

Even before joining the royal family, Markle projected self-assuredness. She ran a site called The Tig, where she blogged about independence and living alone. In 2015, she penned an essay for Darling detailing how she found self-confidence as a young actress when a casting director told you, “You need to know that you’re enough.”
