Kate Middleton Baby News: What Does Prince Harry Have to Say?

Perpetual rumor has turned into enthralling reality:

KATE MIDDLETON IS PREGNANT WITH HER THIRD CHILD!

No, really: KATE MIDDLETON IS PREGNANT WITH HER THIRD CHILD!

Royal Hunk of Meat

You've likely read that sentence so many times in the past that you started to doubt whether it would ever be legitimate.

But it wasn't a supermarket tabloid making the gigantic announcement on Monday morning... it was Kensington Palace!

“Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting their third child,” the statement read, referring to Kate and Prince William and adding:

"The Queen and members of both families are delighted with the news."

Middleton once again is suffering from a condition that causes severe morning sickness, just as she did during her first two pregnancies.

As a result, she approved the reveal of this news early (Middleton is not even three months along) and was forced to cancel an appearance in England on Monday.

The Prince and The Duchess

Explains The Palace:

“As with her previous two pregnancies, The Duchess is suffering from Hyperemesis Gravidarum.

"Her Royal Highness will no longer carry out her planned engagement at the Hornsey Road Children’s Centre in London today.

"The Duchess is being cared for at Kensington Palace."

We can't say for certain when Middleton or William will speak on the pregnancy themselves, but Prince Harry has officially become the first family member to do so.

"Fantastic, great, very, very happy for them," Harry said in a video shared by The Daily Express' royal correspondent several hours ago.

When asked how Kate is doing, Prince Harry responded as follows:

"I haven't seen her for a while but I think she's okay."

(Editor's Question: How long until we also learn that Pippa Middleton is pregnant? Or Meghan Markle is pregnant?)

A Clarence House spokesman, meanwhile, has said that Prince Charles and Camilla are "delighted" with the news.

Kate and William are already parents to a precious four-year old named George and an adorable two-year old named Charlotte.

Despite the young ages of these children, fans have been wondering for months and months just when Middleton would get pregnant again.

The impending birth will relegate Prince Harry down to sixth in line to the throne.

But he doesn't seem too bothered over that fact, does he?

Kate and William Laugh

At this point, we do not know when Kate is due or whether she'll have a boy or girl.

We don't know whether the beloved couple will even find out the gender ahead of time or not.

And we definitely do not know the names Middleton and William are considering.

But do you have any suggestions? What about Clarence for a boy and Roxanne for a girl?

Prince William and Prince Harry Delve Into Diana’s Death: What Do They Remember?

Let's forget the silly rumors for a second, shall we?

Ignore, at least for a few minutes, talk of Prince William being named King or Prince Harry getting engaged to Meghan Markle.

Let's focus instead of something far more real and serious: The death of Princess Diana.

Harry, William, Diana

The Royal Studs sat down for an interview with BBC One as a part of the upcoming documentary Diana, 7 Days, which commemorates the 20th anniversary of this icon's tragic death on August 31, 1997.

About a month ago, for a different TV special, her sons opened up about their final conversation with their beloved mother.

In Diana, 7 Days, they think back to learning about her death for the first time.

"One of the hardest things for a parent to have to do is to tell your children that your other parent has died. How you deal with that, I don’t know," Harry says in a released clip from the program, referring to his father, Prince Charles.

It was Charles who told his kids that Diana died in a car crash after he vehicle was chased down by members of the paparazzi.

"[Our dad] was there for us - he was the one out of two left, and he tried to do his best and to make sure that we were protected and looked after," Harry adds.

"But he was going through the same grieving process as well."

Prince Harry in a Uniform

At the time of Diana's death, William was just 15 years old and Harry was 12.

The kids were on vacation with their father and grandparents at the family's Balmoral Estate in Scotland when the accident took place.

"At the time, my grandmother [Queen Elizabeth] wanted to protect her two grandsons and my father as well," says William, adding:

"Our grandmother deliberately removed the newspapers and things like that so there was nothing in the house to read.

"We didn’t know what was going on. Back then there were no smart phones and things like that, so you couldn’t get your news.

"Thankfully, we had the privacy to mourn and to try to collect our thoughts and have that space away from everybody.

"We had no idea the reaction to her death would be quite so huge."

Prince William at a Mic

Diana was killed in a car accident as she drove through the Pont de l'Alma tunnel in Paris while being chased by the so-called "press."

It was later determined that her driver at the time was drunk.

"One of the hardest things to come to terms with is the fact that the people who chased her into the tunnel were the same people who were taking photographs of her while she was still dying in the backseat of her car," Harry says in the documentary teaser below.

"William and I know that. We've been told that numerous times by people that know that was the case."

He continues:

"She had quite a severe head injury, but she was very much alive on the backseat, and those people that caused the accident, instead of helping, were taking photographs of her dying on the back seat.

"And then those photographs made their way back to news desks in this country."

That's awful.

William, meanwhile, has speaks in the special about how herefused to let his mother's death "break" him.

"When you have something so traumatic as the death of you mother at 15 - which sadly many people have experienced, and no one wants to experience - it will either make or break you. And I wouldn't let it break me," William says.

"I wanted her to be proud of the person I would become...

"I didn't want her worried, or her legacy to be that William or Harry were completely and utterly devastated by it, and that all the hard work and all love and all the energy she put into us when we were younger would go to waste."

Diana, 7 Days airs Sunday at 6:30 p.m. EST.

Meghan Markle Reality TV Show: Actually on the Way?!?

Meghan Markle has said almost nothing about her relationship with Prince Harry ever since she started to shag the Royal Hunk last spring.

She's given followers no reason to believe that she's in this relationship for fame, fortune or attention.

But a new report has critics wondering if their suspicions about the Suits actress have been accurate all along.

Meghan Markle Throwback Pic

Might she really be using Harry to raise her public profile?

We can't help but ask this question after a representative for Channel 4 in Great Britain spoke to Marie Claire and said plans are underway to produce and air Meet the Markles.

The proposed reality show will be an hour in length and will document Markle's life, from early childhood to her breakout days as an actress to her ongoing charity efforts.

The program “also promises to delve into how Prince Harry and Meghan met, as well as use genealogical research to trace her ancestry," writes the publication.

Markle and Harry are not even engaged yet, of course.

(Although there have been incessant rumors for months that Harry could pop the question at any moment.)

So the idea of a reality show based around their lives seems a tad bit mature.

Meghan Markle in 2015

Oh, also also totally antithetical to everything this couple appears to stand for.

They are very private and respect the traditions of The Royal Family very much.

As much as we'd love to see Queen Elizabeth take on the role of a Kris Jenner-type from Keeping Up with the Kardashians, we somehow doubt her Highness would be up for it.

For this reason, Marie Claire notes that the rumored reality show might not feature Meghan or Harry at all.

It might instead consist of friends or family members trying to take advantage of Markle's sudden rise in popularity.

Just recently, you may recall, Meghan’s estranged half-sister, Samantha Grant, claimed to be writing a "tell all" about what it was like growing up with the actress.

The Daily Mail Online reports that Grant even claims Meghan’s philanthropic endeavors are "cheap' and that Markle lacks "basic human consideration."

Ouch. Harsh.

A Royal Wedding?

It's worth noting, however, that Markle and Grant are 17 years apart in age.

They were not raised at the same time in the same house. They barely even know each other.

One insider even says Markle and Grant have seen each other a grand total of one time in 23 years.

So we don't know if Grant is behind the idea of Meet the Markles. We have no idea if it will even receive a green light and hit the air at any point.

As much as we appreciate the alliterative title, however, we caution readers not to believe everything you see on the show as it pertains to Meghan.

If you want to see this beautiful star on the small screen, just go watch Suits online instead.

Prince Charles: Ordering Prince Harry to Dump Meghan Markle?!

Earlier today, we reported that Meghan Markle may be planning to quit acting in order to move to London and focus on her relationship with Prince Harry.

It's not easy to leave behind the glamorous life of a regular on a basic cable legal drama beloved by retirees and the unemployable alike, but Harry and Meghan seem to be the real thing, and marrying into royalty is a pretty sweet deal in its own right.

Meghan Markle Red Carpet Image

Some folks are still skeptical, given Harry's history of serial monogamy, but he and Meghan appear to be getting serious. 

After all, they've only been together a few months, but they've already reached the "BS rumors pregnancy rumors" stage, with several outlets reporting last week that Markle is expecting.

But as many of Harry's forebears have learned the hard way, royal romances are tricky matters that require consent from far more than just the two principle parties involved.

According to Radar Online, one key member of the royal family is refusing to give Harry and Meghan the okay to take the next step in their relationship.

Prince Charles Photo

Prince Charles may not seem much of an authority on marriage (His first is synonymous with "unhealthy relationship."), but apparently, he and his second wife, Camilla Parker-Bowles, see potential for disaster in the Harkle reunion that the rest of us are missing.

According to Radar the trouble began when Harry and Meghan traveled to Jamaica together for his friend's wedding.

It was their most public social occasion to date, and apparently, photos of his sun enjoying Meghan's company rubbed Charles the wrong way.

“This is the first time that she and Harry have socialized so openly as a couple and it’s a significant step in the relationship,” a royal source tells the site.

Prince Harry and Prince Charles

Charles reportedly shared his misgivings with Harry, and predictably, a royal row ensued:

“Harry was telling his father, Charles, to stay out of his life,” says the insider.

So why does Charles find Meghan so objectionable?

Well, according to the insider, Camilla pointed out to Charles what she sees as similarities between Meghan and infamous royal from the past:

“Camilla likens Meghan to Fergie, who triggered public scandals with her running around and was photographed topless having her toes sucked by a boyfriend while still married to Charles’ brother Andrew."

Camilla Parker Bowles Image

The basis of the comparison seems to be nothing more than the fact that Markle is divorced and Fergie became divorced from Andrew.

Someone sould fill Charles in on the fact that there are literally millions of divorced people in the world.

In fact, he doesn't have to look very far to find one.

Any room with a mirror will do the trick.

Meghan Markle: Pregnant by Prince Harry?!?

Congratulations are in order for Meghan Markle.

The actress is officially part of the Royal Family!

Because she and Prince Harry really are engaged and a wedding is being planned and all of Great Britain is about to shut down for the next several months?

No.

Meghan Markle Plays Rachel

Because Markle is finally the subject of wild pregnancy speculation.

And let's just say Kate Middleton can relate, many, many, many, MANY times over.

According to the latest OK! Weekly cover story, Markle may be expecting her first child with Harry.

(It would also be the rising star's first child overall.)

As you can see below, the front page of this issue screams “Meghan Tells Princess Kate: I’m Having Harry’s Baby!”

It claims that Markle made this “secret confession” during a “girls’ night out" to Middleton, which may be the hardest part of this entire story to believe.

Meghan Markle Pregnant Claim

Could Harry have knocked up his girlfriend?

Sure. They're probably having sex and mistakes happen.

But do Markle and Middleton enjoy drunken nights out alone? LOL, no!

According to anonymous source - who are totally real and not remotely made up by editors - Meghan and Markle managed to sneak into a London pub without anyone identifying them.

And, once they were inside, the alcohol and the conversation flowed freely.

“By the end of the evening, which the insider says stretched till 1 a.m., Meghan had confessed to Kate that she’s so in love with Prince Harry, 32, she’d have his baby tomorrow if she could!” writes the tabloid.

This source is then quoted as saying the following:

“Meghan told Kate that, as far as she’s concerned, they should start trying [to conceive] as soon as they’ve announced their engagement.

"She’s got baby fever!”

So, just to emphasize, OK! isn't actually reporting that Markle is pregnant.

It's claiming (falsely, we're sure) that she simply told Kate Middleton that she wants to get pregnant someday soon. That's a pretty big difference.

Meghan Markle in Blue

Markle should probably get used to these sorts of rumors.

As the likely future wife of Prince Harry, she'll be subjected to scrutiny that she'll probably never fully adjust to.

If she thinks Suits fans are passionate, wait until she meets Royal Family followers!

For now, Markle has managed to avoid any real scandal.

She hasn't really said anything in public, either, ever since her romance with Harry went viral late last year.

But those tabloids and newspapers continue to wonder and write anyway, even alleging that Markle and Middleton are engaged in some kind of feud.

And that pretty much explains what Markle is in for:

She's going out for drinks and sharing major secrets with Middleton... or she's engaged in a rivalry with the future Queen. There's really no way for Markle to win.

The best thing she can do is lay low, use protection when having sex until she really is prepared to conceive and simply enjoy her time with the man she loves.

Prince Harry & Meghan Markle: Engaged?!

It's only been about three months since we first learned that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are dating, but it seems the couple is wasting no time in getting serious.

In fact, for weeks now, we've been hearing rumors that Harry and Meghan are engaged.

Normally, the idea of any royal moving so quickly in a new relationship would be absurd, but this seems to be a special case...

Meghan Markle Red Carpet Image

Radar Online is reporting today that Meghan was spotted wearing an engagement ring while out and about in London.

According to the site, the ring was nothing fancy, just a simple gold band.

Interestingly, however, it was engraved with a letter "H."

So what does it all mean?

Probably nothing - but possibly everything.

Meghan Markle Sparkles

In most cases, a royal engagement ring is an extravagant, eye-catching piece, but Harry and Meghan have been so non-traditional up to this point that we wouldn't be surprised if they went with something simple and borderline hokey.

Perhaps Meghan wears the ring as a reminder that she and Harry are committed to one another, but she keeps it simple so as to avoid too much attention from the press.

Unfortunately for MegMar, she's in British tabloid territory now, and nothing she does will go unnoticed for the rest of her days.

Gone are the days of basic cable obscurity when only the elderly and unemployed knew her name.

Now, Meg has been pegged as a future royal, which means her every move is subject to scrutiny.

Meghan Markle Pic

Amazingly, she and Harry still haven't made their official debut as a couple.

That's scheduled to happen at Pippa Middleton's wedding on May 20.

Yes, that means that even if they're not engaged now, there's still a very good chance that these two will be engaged before they officially come out as a couple.

Looks like Meghan won't be waiting around like Kate did for so many years.

Of course, if she thinks the British press' obsession with her personal life is bad now, just wait until Harry officially puts a ring on it.

She may wind up longing for the simpler days when she was just a regular on Suits.

Usually that's a longing reserved for people who are currently working for tips and memorizing lunch specials.

Prince Harry & Pippa Middleton: "Secretly Dating!" Totes Loved Up!

First of all, nice photoshop job.

Pippa Middleton and Prince Harry: Secretly Dating!

This week's cover of OK! Magazine alleges that Pippa Middleton and Prince Harry have finally embarked on a "secret romance," since both parties are currently single and ready to mingle.

“It’s very easy for her to sneak in and out of the palace," a source claims.  "Harry just sends one of his bodyguards to pick her up, and then she ducks down in the backseat so the paparazzi don’t spot her.”

Ah, just like when Diana was dating Dr. Hasnat Khan.  He'd ride in the boot of someone's car for a Kensington Palace rendezvous.

After seeing Pippa in her skin-grazing Alexander McQueen bridesmaid gown, everyone who watched the royal wedding in 2011 wanted her and Harry to end up together.

The source told the publication that at the wedding reception, the Duchess of Cambridge "went to check her makeup and found them [Pippa and Harry] snogging in the bathroom!”

What a lark!  Especially since Pippa was dating cricket player Alex Loudon at the time and brought him to the wedding.

"They’re trying to play it coy,” the source added, pointing out that Pipps and Hazza have held a candle for one another since the wedding.

“But there’s no doubt that this is developing into something serious. They’re truly sweet together and, in fact, seem very much in love.”

Pippa broke up with her boyfriend, Nico Jackson in October after three years together.  She's been seen lately with ex-boyfriend, James Matthews, the brother of Made In Chelsea's Spencer Matthews.

Matthews hosted the Middletons (sans Catherine) at his family's St. Bart's hotel, Eden Rock in August, and on December 6th was photographed with Pippa and her mom, Carole outside a memorial Christmas carol concert.

"I know they’ve always been very close friends – well, they’ve had a close friendship for awhile," Spencer told me back about James and Pippa back in December 2012.

"And it seems that there might be something more there."

Soz, Harry.

Prince Harry Brings Attention to Poaching During Visit to Africa

In the world of British royals, it’s Prince Harry who has the reputation for hard partying, but at the end of the day, this guy knows what’s important, and he uses his status to call attention to injustices and acts of evil. On his fourth day of his visit to Africa, Prince Harry visited Kruger National Park in South Africa. He was distraught to see rhinoceroses and elephants killed, their tusks missing, and chose to bring attention to the widespread problem of poaching in a sensitive, heartbreaking Instagram post:

 

Prince Harry has released this personal photo taken during his summer visit to southern Africa. Here Prince Harry shares his story behind the photograph… “After a very long day in Kruger National Park, with five rhinos sent to new homes and three elephants freed from their collars – like this sedated female – I decided to take a moment. I know how lucky I am to have these experiences, but hearing stories from people on the ground about how bad the situation really is, upset and frustrated me. How can it be that 30,000 elephants were slaughtered last year alone? None of them had names, so do we not care? And for what? Their tusks? Seeing huge carcasses of rhinos and elephants scattered across Africa, with their horns and tusks missing is a pointless waste of beauty.” Photograph © Prince Harry

A photo posted by Kensington Palace (@kensingtonroyal) on Dec 2, 2015 at 2:28am PST

This is far from the first time Harry has posted about poaching on the Kensington Royal Instagram account. His visit to South Africa has been filled with caring for animals who are fighting for their lives after having their tusks stolen and sustaining serious wounds. Harry has also been involved in “de-tusking” certain animals so that they will be undesirable to poachers who hunt them for their ivory.

Earlier this year, Prince Harry saw the wasted carcass of a rhino left to die on the savannah after it had been killed for its tusks, and was nearly speechless at the sight. But it did move him to action, as he proclaimed, “But these people will be caught.”

And not only is Prince Harry working to save animals, but he’s working to catch the poachers themselves. The Daily Mail reports that the prince was upset when seeing the damage poachers had caused, and that he said, “There’s good evidence there though, we have a water bottle and cartridges so we’re confident we will catch them.”

Harry was also shown cigarette butts the poachers had left on the ground, which are likely to carry DNA. DNA sampling subsequently took place. He also showed his knowledge of the subject, saying, “You have to try to get to the carcass a quickly as possible to suck up all the evidence before the wilds of Africa [...]

Princess Charlotte Wears A Gown You’ve Probably Seen Before For Her Royal Christening!

Prince George is gonna be mad his little sister keeps taking things from his closet!

Princess Charlotte's Christening took place on Sunday afternoon at St. Mary Magdalene Church in Norfolk, and her royal family members couldn't have looked cuter to celebrate her big day.

Kate Middleton wore all white Alexander McQueen in honor of her daughter's step into the spotlight, and her fascinator is simply gorgeous!

Prince William kept things traditional in a navy suit, but it's two-month-old Charlotte's big brother George who takes the cake in his adorable red-and-white frilled shorts and short sleeves number.

[ Related: What We Know About Princess Charlotte's Christening So Far ]

So what exactly did Charlotte wear for her Christening?

A replica of the same royal gown that has been in her family since 1841!

George himself wore the hand-stitched gown for his Christening in 2013 (below) while daddy William got the original for his in 1982!

So who else was in attendance to honor Charlotte?? Her five godparents, of course!

Kate and William selected five of their closest friends and family members to participate in the ceremony, including; William's cousin the Honourable Laura Fellowes, and longtime friends Thomas van Straubenzee and James Meade, as well as Kate's cousin Adam Middleton and her friend Sophie Carter.

We wonder what Pippa and Harry are going to think about this, especially since William's little brother has now missed both his niece and nephew's Christenings.

[ Photo: See The First Portrait of Princess Charlotte & Prince George! ]

The rest of the attendees included Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Prince Charles and Camilla, Kate's parents Michael and Carole Middleton, her brother James Middleton and Pippa!

Sounds like a pretty great day to us!

The royal Twitter read:

Remember, we have yet to see an official portrait of the royal daughter, Princess Charlotte, with her parents Kate Middleton and Prince William -- so wouldn't Saturday be the perfect time to enjoy that?!

Prince Harry’s TOTALLY Ready For Kids! Even His Polo Pal Thinks So!

We all know Prince Harry has babies on the brain!

And we're not really surprised, since he gets to play uncle to Prince William and Kate Middleton's two beautiful babes.

Can you blame him?! Have you SEEN pictures of Prince George and Princess Charlotte?!

Harry has opened up recently about feeling ready for kids, but now his friends are behind him 100%!

The redhead's polo pal Nacho Figueras thinks he'll be a fantastic father, saying:

"I think he will be a great dad, he cares a lot about children, most of his charities are towards children."

And since he clearly gets along really well with the little munchkins, we're convinced that he won't have any trouble transitioning into having babies of his own!

Nacho continued to echo this sentiment, reiterating how important children are to the prince:

"He loves them and he cares about them, so I'm sure he's going to be a great dad."

Whenever the gentle ginger decides to settle down and raise a few little ones, we're sure he'll do an awesome job!
