On October 15, Kensington Palace made the long-awaited announcement: The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are expecting a baby! The Duchess' due date is in spring next year, the announcement stated.

Needless to say, members of the royal family had learned about the news a little earlier than it was made public. All of them were elated, especially Prince Charles. Duchess Meghan’s baby will be his fourth grandchild, joining three cousins, Prince Louis, Princess Charlotte, and Prince George.
