Meghan Markle has practically been busy non-stop for the last year; after Prince Harry and Meghan announced their engagement in November 2017, she immediately became an international name. For the next six months, Meghan was planning the wedding of the century while learning how to navigate becoming royalty.
After one of the most iconic weddings in history, Meghan earned a new role in addition to “wife.” Meghan became the Duchess of Sussex. Her transition into royalty was beyond natural; every event, every outing, every meeting- Meghan executed with grace and compassion. It was clear: she was made to be royalty.
As Meghan stunned the world with her natural elegance, fans couldn’t help but wonder if Meghan had any flaws at all. She always appeared to be so delicate, kind, talented, brilliant, and beautiful.
After less than six months of marriage, Kensington Palace announced the most anticipated news of the year: Harry and Meghan were expecting their first child. In a post shared with an excited picture of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, the words, “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.” Within seconds, the announcement went viral with more than 63,865 retweets and 277,940 likes.
The massive announcement came just hours before Meghan and Harry touched down in Australia for their grueling 16-day tour; Meghan would spend first two weeks after making her announcement surrounded adoring fans in Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, and The Kingdom of Tonga. The tour would send the soon-to-be mom on bustling 76-stop tour with thousands of miles traveling, countless meet-and-greets, and several outfit changes.
While Meghan has appeared to dominate every moment of royalty, fans were concerned that the 16-day tour might be too much for the first-time mom. During one of Harry and Meghan’s appearances, Harry and Meghan visited a farm in Dubbo. During their visit, Meghan chatted with Emily Carroll, a first-time mother herself. Emily asked her she was feeling.
Meghan revealed that “she’s feeling pretty good so far, which is great, but that she’s running on adrenaline. She said they’re doing 76 engagements in 16 days with maybe one rest in the middle.”
When this story first broke, we were stunned. Meghan is believed to be 4-months pregnant on a 76-stop tour; if the only symptom she’s experiencing is “tiredness,” then we’re pretty impressed. Meghan might be tired but she also admitted that right now, she’s “running on adrenaline.”
Well, we sure you hope you get some good rest soon, Meghan! You and the baby both need it!
