A whirlwind romance that began with a blind date set up by a mutual friend has blossomed into one of the highest profile relationships in the world.

After dating for a year and a half, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle became engaged on November 27, 2017. Just seven months after that, the couple got married in front of the world on May 18 of this year.

Now the royal couple has hit another milestone — the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are expecting their first child together.

The official Instagram page for Kensington Palace wrote:

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.

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.

Hundreds of people in the comment section of the post exclaimed they “knew it,” following Harry and Meghan’s pregnancy announcement.

The couple is currently touring Australia together.

A source told People that Markle recently had her “12-week scan” and “feeling well.”

The news of their pregnancy comes just shy of their six-month wedding anniversary.

Markle’s mom, Doria Ragland, issued her own statement following the announcement as well:

Ms. Ragland is very happy about this lovely news and she looks forward to welcoming her first grandchild.

In-laws Prince William and Kate Middleton also told the media that they are “delighted” for Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis to be getting a first cousin. The Queen, Prince Philip, Prince Charles, and the Duchess of Cornwall are also overjoyed by the news.

If the source is correct, and Markle is 12-weeks along, then the world should expect to meet the newest member of the royal family in May 2019. That’s right around the same time Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be celebrating their first wedding anniversary.
