On Monday, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle confirmed that they’re expecting their first baby together, six months after tying the knot in May.
However, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex haven’t had much time to rest since announcing the royal baby news.
The couple has been traveling in Australia as part of a 16-day tour through four countries, also including New Zealand, Fiji, and Tonga.
Despite their hectic schedule, the royal duo still found time to talk to fans on Sydney’s famous Bondi Beach, according to Sky News.
And one local said Markle even spilled the beans about her first pregnancy symptoms.

To turn the tide on stigma surrounding mental health issues, OneWave is encouraging people to share their experiences of living with mental health issues and the power of opening up using #OneRoyalFluroWave. #RoyalVisitAustralia #Australia #Sydney #Bondi #BondiBeach
Local Charlotte Waverley, 35, is also expecting and said she spoke to the duchess about pregnancy. She told Sky News:
“Meghan told me that pregnancy was like having jet lag. She said she was up at 4:30 a.m. this morning doing yoga in her room as she couldn’t sleep.”
Though the expectant mom attributed her pregnancy to “jet lag” symptoms, many social media users were pointing to a different cause — the fact that she’s actually in different time zone.
Australia is about ten hours ahead of the United Kingdom, which many Facebook users pointed out. One commenter wrote:
She probably DOES have jetlag, she’s in Australia.

"You are the salt of the earth – honest, hardworking and as tough as they come. And that resilience, sense of humour and commitment to the land are the qualities that make you unique. You are the backbone of this country." — Thank you to everyone that came out in the rain in Dubbo to meet The Duke and Duchess of Sussex! #RoyalVisitAustralia #Australia #Dubbo
But it makes sense that the duchess would turn to yoga for relaxation since mom Doria Ragland is a yoga instructor.
In 2015, she told Best Health that yoga was her “thing.” Markle said:
“My mom is a yoga instructor, and I started doing mommy-and-me yoga with her when I was seven.”
Thankfully, prenatal yoga has all sorts of benefits, so her early morning sessions could be helpful down the road.
Prince Harry and Markle’s baby is due in the spring. Kensington Palace has confirmed that she’s at least 12 weeks into her pregnancy.
