And Baby Makes Three: Prince Harry and Meghan’s Child On Way Couple announces their first child will arrive in the spring By Gregory Katz and Rod McguirkAssociated Press CANBERRA, Australia — They both wanted chil- dren. They knew it was time. Meghan had ended her acting career and moved to Britain to be a full-time royal. Prince Harry had stepped down from the military and wanted to set- tle down. Their marriage was a five- star glamour blowout: the spectacular Windsor Castle setting, the horse-drawn car- riage on a warm spring day, the vintage Jaguar with the top down, the Hollywood A-listers mixing with real-life royalty. And now comes the very welcome word that Harry and Meghan, the duchess of Sus- sex, are expecting their first child in the spring. It is the perfect coda to a May wedding that sent a very clear signal that a new generation of royals is coming to the fore even as Queen Elizabeth II continues her historic reign. The highly anticipated preg- nancy was announced Mon- day just hours after Harry and the former Meghan Markle arrived in Sydney, Australia, at the start of a demanding 16- day visit that also includes Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand. Word spread instantly: In- ternational visitors gathered outside Buckingham Palace for the Changing of the Guard ceremony felt they were par- taking of royal history. “It’s wonderful,” said 29-year-old Canadian tourist Braden Fraser. “I was happy about the first couple of mar- riages and the children com- ing. I’m glad to see the monar- chy is carrying on. Back home we love them, so I’m glad to be here as it’s happening.” It’s hard to overestimate how popular Harry and Meghan have become. The 34-year-old prince holds a special place in Brit- ons’ hearts as one of the two children of the late Princess Diana. He had a bad boy phase — don’t even ask about the na- ked billiards game in a Las Ve- gas hotel suite — but redeemed himself with years of military service and a devotion to help- ing injured veterans. Harry gained even more re- spect last year by talking can- didly about his struggle with mental health issues related to losing his mother to a car crash when he was only 12. No royal had ever publicly acknowl- edged this kind of frailty, and his willingness to do so in a bid to end the stigma surrounding mental illness only raised his stature with the public. Enter Meghan Markle, who represented a clean break from the royal mold. She was not British. She was an Amer- ican TV actress. She was di- vorced, older than Harry and her mother is African-Ameri- can. She captivated Britain. There was an ease to her confident smile, and contagious excite- ment about moving across the Atlantic and joining the royal family. Meghan, 37, is seen as a modern- izing influence on the at times stodgy royal family, and she is credited by many with bring- ing happiness to Harry. There are paral- lels between her life and that of Princess Grace, another Amer- ican who left a Meghan and Prince Harry successful Hol- but in due time,” she said in lywood career to marry Prince Rainier of Mo- 2016, when she was still star- ring in the TV legal drama naco and start a royal family.
