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
