Earlier today it was announced that Prince Harry and  Meghan Markle, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, are expecting a child in the spring, Kensington Palace.

“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.”

The duke and duchess were said to have shared the news with family members at Princess Eugeine and Jack Brooksbank’s wedding on Friday.

“According to current royal rules, the child will not be given the title of prince or princess. A son of a duke can take one of their father’s lesser titles, meaning he could become Earl of Dumbarton, a title given to Harry by the Queen on his wedding day, in addition to his title of the Duke of Sussex. A girl would become Lady Mountbatten-Windsor, taking Harry’s family name.” (Buzzfeed)

Where will their unborn child fall in the line of succession? The baby will be 7th in line for the crown.

  1. Prince Charles
  2. Prince William
  3. Prince George
  4. Princess Charlotte
  5. Prince Louis
  6. Prince Harry
  7. Meghan and Harry’s children
  8. Prince Andrew
  9. Princess Beatrice
  10. Princess Eugenie

The Baby if it were a boy would have been 6th in line for the thrown but the new rules on the line of succession changed that in 2013 when they announced gender will not determine order their birth orders will.

Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland, is also said to be happy for the couple. “She looks forward to welcoming her first grandchild,”.

Everyone is very happy for Meghan and Harry and wish the best for them on their new journey into parenthood!
