The Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh, the Prince of Wales, the Duchess of Cornwall and Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are said to be "delighted" for the couple.

In a statement, Kensington Palace said: "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".

Experienced three-time parents William and Kate will be able to offer advice to Harry and Meghan on everything from sleepless nights, feeding and weaning to tantrums and choosing the right school.

Canadian-born Autumn Phillips, and husband Peter Phillips, opted for a non-traditional name for their daughter Savannah - the Queen's first great-grandchild - in 2010.

In the United Kingdom, the most popular name for a girl born in 2017 was Olivia, and for a boy Oliver.

Their more-than-two-week official visit will take in multiple stops in Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand - all parts of the Commonwealth, a group of predominantly former British colonies.

The president, who attended a fundraiser before the rally, also praised GOP gubernatorial candidate Scott Wagner. He talked about exiting the Iran nuclear deal and drew wild applause for mentioning his plans for a Space Force.

He or she will also be a first cousin of Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

One option - considered a favourite for a girl - is Diana in honour of Harry's late beloved mother.

The princess was killed in a vehicle crash when Harry was just 12 years old.

Thomas is a popular family name for the duchess.

Even the duchess's father Thomas Markle, whom she is believed not to have spoken to since her wedding, said he expected children soon.

Charlotte - described by Kate as being feisty - is known for her confidence in front of the cameras, while future king George - who loves all things to do with helicopters and the police - is more shy in public.

"He chose the last name Wisdom".
