Pregnancy rumors have been making the rounds for weeks now, as Meghan has been spotted in loose-fitting clothing, like the oversized blue coat she just wore to Princess Eugenie's wedding. The announcement comes just five months after tying the knot at St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle.
The happy couple just arrived in Sydney, Australia, today for a 16-day-long tour through Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand.
