The Duchess has finally spoken!
When Prince Harry and Meghan Markle married in May 2018, royal watchers were thrilled at the very real possibility of the couple announcing a pregnancy. The summer months passed on as the newly minted Duke and Duchess debuted as a married couple at events, parties, and polo matches.
Each time a picture was snapped of Meghan, internet fans and critics began to speculate on whether or not the Duchess of pregnant. Fans knew that the couple wanted to have children sooner than later, however Meghan gave no hint at a pregnancy. Which- of course- only encouraged fans to speculate even more.
That all changed when Harry and Meghan were heading south to Australia for a 16-day long tour. Just hours before the couple landed Down Under, Kensington Palace made the official announcement that Harry and Meghan were pregnant with their first child!
The announcement sparked major curiosity towards the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and fans were thrilled to be able to see much coverage of the parents-to-be. Meghan appeared to be quite happy about finally sharing her news; several days, the Duchess was seen cradling her newly debuted baby bump.
The baby news was hugely exciting for fans, and one could only speculate that Harry and Meghan’s family were just as thrilled. Many fans eagerly considered Harry’s brother and sister-in-law in the midst of the news; Were they as excited as the rest of us for the Spring 2019 arrival of Baby Sussex?
Surely, they were! According to Royal Watchers, the plan was for Harry and Meghan to move into Apartment 1A at Kensington Palace where they would be “roommates” with William and Kate and their three precious children. The apartment was just wrapping up a major renovation but would serve as the home for the new parents to be.
However, just weeks after announcing their pregnancy news, Kensington Palace released a major curveball: Harry and Meghan were leaving Kensington for Windsor!
Fans were shocked! Why were they leaving Windsor when they were already planning to move into Kensington? By this point, fans and critics alike were speculating tension between the couples. After all, the announcement was made in the midst of several media outlets suggesting that William and Harry would no longer be sharing an association with the Kensington Palace Twitter.
Of course, the royals don’t air tension- so even if there was an issue, it would be kept private. Nonetheless, fans and critics were reading into every little detail between Harry and Meghan and William and Kate. On November 28th, 2018, more than month after announcing that Meghan was pregnant, Kate Middleton was finally confronted by a fan about her thoughts on the upcoming baby. Kate’s response has since viral and fans are quite confused by her response (Press the play button to watch the video below).
During their visit to Leicester University, a cheerful fan asked Kate if she was excited for Meghan’s new baby. Kate responded, “Absolutely! “It’s such a special time to have little kiddies. And a cousin for George and Charlotte, as well, and Louis. It’ll be really special.”
The response was rather impersonal, leaving several hundreds to comment on it. While Kate wouldn’t reveal her true feelings (especially if there was tension), her response seemed rather nervous and directed at her own children rather than showcasing her sister-in-law. What are your thoughts? Let us know in the comments but be sure to keep it kind!
