This will be the first child for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle first began dating in 2016 and announced their engagement in November 2017.
They were hooked up on a blind date by Violet von Westenholz, one of Prince Harry’s childhood friends, according to E!. Von Westenholz works in fashion PR for Ralph Lauren, which is how she reportedly met Markle.
The former “Suits” actress spoke about the set-up in a BBC interview with Prince Harry following news of their engagement.
“I didn’t know much about him and so the only thing I had asked her when she said she wanted to hook us up was, I had one question, I said, ‘Was he nice?’” Markle recalled.
Prince Harry and Duchess Markle are visiting Australia as part of their first Royal tour.
