Cape Town - The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are expecting their first child together.

Kensington Palace announced on Monday that the couple are happy to announce their bundle of joy will arrive in the spring (autumn in South Africa) of 2019.

They further thanked fans for their support since their wedding in May.

The official announcement comes after weeks of speculation that the former Suits actress is expecting.
