Sydney: Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are going to be parents in Spring 2019, Kensington Palace has announced.

The couple had recently tied the knot in a starry, royal ceremony at the Windsor Castle in May this year. 

The news broke out when the pair is on their first overseas tour as a married couple Australia. The tour coincides the third Invictus Games, an international sports competition Harry founded in 2014 for wounded veterans and members of the military, which kicks off Saturday.

The Prince had hinted at his desire to start a family many times. In a 2017 Newsweek interview, he had said, "My mother took a huge part in showing me an ordinary life," he said. "Thank goodness I'm not completely cut off from reality... I am determined to have a relatively normal life, and if I am lucky enough to have children, they can have one, too."
