Have I nodded off and dreamed this?
I swear I saw one of those flashing headlines at the top of my iPad screen announcing that Meghan and Harry are expecting a baby in the Spring.

There’s been a lot of speculation about this as she was wearing a loose fitting outfit at the wedding! Good luck to them. Hope she’ll be ok on her tour .

Yes you didn't imagine it maw.
I've just posted too but will have it deleted.

Not imagined. Flashed on my screen and just mentioned on the radio.

Hellosunshine Mon 15-Oct-18 09:00:01

Yes been announced. Wonder what the anti royalists will have to say?

GrannyGravy13 Mon 15-Oct-18 09:10:21

Really pleased for them both, she looked radiant this morning after the long flight down under!!

There had been a lot of speculation due to the cut of Meghan's coat at the wedding, so nice news. Particularly pleased for Harry, he's been yearning for fatherhood for a while it seems. Meghan's mother has been talking of coming over and possibly settling here, that would be lovely for her daughter. Hope it all goes well for all of them.

I told DH more than a week ago that she was pregnant, us women just know these things smile

What will t be anti royalists say? Something horrible and spiteful no doubt!!

Jane10 Mon 15-Oct-18 10:22:23

Not anti royalist, just not interested in this 'sleb'.

Harrigran ! Psychic?
How are you on next week’s Lottery numbers? 🤣🤣

That is lovely news- I have missed seeing her on TV recently.

henetha Mon 15-Oct-18 10:30:54

I'm very happy for them, no matter what.

I am a republican but that does not mean I wish harm or unhappiness to individuals. It is the system I dislike. The people involved may be delightful and hardworking or not. I do not know any of them so cannot love them or hate them!

All aboard the KP accommodation merry go round. Who will move into Nottingham Cottage when Harry and Meghan pop across to their new palatial pad? My money's on Beatrice.

Please will some nice kind, caring and very rich man marry Beatrice. She needs a happy ending.

Jalima1108 Mon 15-Oct-18 10:49:41

Oh goodness, I missed it!
When is the baby due?
I thought you shouldn't fly in the first trimester so is she past that time?

Please will some nice kind, caring and very rich man marry Beatrice. She needs a happy ending.
Yes, who can we find?
However, there is time yet, she's only 32.

cornergran Mon 15-Oct-18 10:52:18

It seems they are. Wishing them well.

Hope Harry will opt to visit Fiji and Tonga
without Meghan by his side.

Why should people assume that anti royalists would say something spiteful? I say good luck to them and hope it all goes well- - this doesn't mean I am a royalist ( Im not).

gillybob Mon 15-Oct-18 11:53:10

It was probably said in the hope of stirring up a juicy royal argument, suzied.

nigglynellie Mon 15-Oct-18 11:55:17

Sadly, past experience tells us they often do!!

glammanana Mon 15-Oct-18 12:42:30

Lovely news for a dull Monday morning I am so pleased for them specially for Harry where he can enjoy the pleasures of becoming a father.
Now we know why Megan's mum has been over so often since the wedding I do hope she moves here so she can be a hands on granny like Kates mum.

Maggiemaybe Mon 15-Oct-18 12:56:49

Ah, lovely. I suppose they announced it after the wedding so as not to steal the limelight. We had a memorable weekend once - DD1 got married, DDIL was expecting her first, and DD2 told us the next morning that she was too. Magical!

Good news makes a change from Bre....... Very clever to announce it in Oz.
