Soon after, Kensington Palace released an official statement which read: “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.” Since then, Sew hasn’t been able to get enough of the royal baby info, pictures and pregnancy updates!
