A statement from Kensington Palace said the baby is expected in the spring of 2019.

According to the reports, a spokesman said, "Their Royal Highnesses very much appreciate 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 their happy news.”

"The Queen, Duke of Edinburgh, Prince of Wales, Duchess of Cornwall, and Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted for the couple and were able to congratulate them on Friday at the wedding in person,” the statement said.

The couple was recently seen together on Friday at the wedding of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank at Windsor Castle.
