The Duchess of Sussex informed her mother Doria Ragland of the news "immediately."
“Doria is so delighted about the news of her first grandchild,” a source told Us Weekly. “Doria has been helping Meghan through this time in her life immensely. Meghan really looks to Doria for all advice in anything she does.”
The news of Harry and Meghan's royal bub was announced last night by Kensington Palace, shortly after the couple landed in Australia to begin their first international tour.
“Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Sussex is expecting a baby in the Spring of 2019,” the palace’s statement read. “Their Royal Highnesses have appreciated all of the support they have received from people around the world since their wedding in May and are delighted to be able to share this happy news with the public.”
