While it's hard to believe that the royal wedding was already five months ago, the Duke and Dutchess of Sussex are gearing up for their first extended royal tour together. After Prince Harry's cousin, Princess Eugenie, gets married tomorrow the couple will be getting ready to fly off on Tuesday, October 16th, to kick off their tour in Australia.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will also be visiting Tonga, New Zealand, and Fiji in addition to Australia but a new rumour is circulating about a questionable cancellation and now everyone thinks that the royal couple may have a royal baby on the way!
According to the Australian weekly magazine New Idea, the Duchess will not be accompanying the Duke to Fiji on the tour after all. Due to the evidence that the Zika virus is transferring in Fiji, Meghan won't be attending the three engagements there.
Zika is known to be contracted by mosquitos and can cause neurological complications for babies in the womb. Because pregnant women or women wishing to become pregnant are typically the one's avoiding contracting Zika, which can only give the Duchess' cancellation one meaning! Meghan and Harry are finally expecting!
While recent reports have claimed that the newlywed couple is in fact trying to have a baby, it seems like the Duchess may already be pregnant if she's avoiding travelling to Fiji next week.
The news was leaked when a local tour guide in Fiji's capital Suva who reportedly said "Oh, that’s right. Meghan’s not coming now. Only Harry," when asked about the royal visit.
Meghan's mom, Doria Ragland, also recently visited the previous Suits actress which would have been the perfect time to tell her the exciting news before the Royal tour. Considering all the family drama that has been happening with Meghan's father and step-sister, a little bundle of joy would be something to celebrate instead.
While it would be Doria's first grandchild, there is no doubt that Prince Charles would be thrilled to add more grandchildren to the mix, as he is already grandfather to Prince William and Princess Kate's 3 children, George, Charlotte and Louis.
Fans have been eagerly waiting for news of the couple's pregnancy soon after they got married. Reports earlier in the year stated that Markle was already pregnant with twin girls but that rumour was quickly put to rest.
Still, in just the last week Meghan and Harry drew international headlines when it was leaked that they were recently trying to start their family. Harry, who is 32, and Meghan, who is 37, have both been vocal about having children together.
Still waiting for prince harry and Meghan’s baby 🙂

While there is nothing confirmed from Kensington Palace just yet, we think that this theory really makes a lot of sense. Considering the Duchess is pregnant or either actively trying to get pregnant soon, it would make sense why she's avoiding visiting Fiji.
We just hope that the Royal visits are a positive experience for Harry and Meghan, as it could be the first extended tour they take as a family of two or three!
