Get ready for Royal Baby fever to strike all over again.

It's good news for the British royal family today as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, or the Duke and Duchess of Sussex as they call themselves, are expecting their first child.

The news came direct from Kensington Palace this morning in a release via social media.

Harry and Meghan are just about to undertake their first joint visit to Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand, arriving tomorrow for a 16-day tour which will no doubt now be swarmed by press and full of baby questions for the couple.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle married at Windsor Castle in May of this year and visited Ireland (to a lot of fanfare) in July. The child will be seventh in line to the throne, after Prince Charles, Prince William, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, Prince Louis, and their father Prince Harry.
