El príncipe Harry de Inglaterra y la duquesa Meghan esperan a su primer hijo para la primavera (boreal) de 2019, anunció el Palacio de Kensington.

Ambos "están felices" con la noticia, señaló el comunicado. Harry (34) y Meghan (37) se casaron en mayo en el Castillo de Windsor, y acaban de embarcarse en su primera gira internacional de 16 días por Australia, Fiji, Tonga y Nueva Zelandia.

Ahí recibieron los primeros para su bebé, entre los que destacan una mini botas Ugg y un peluche canguro.

Según los medios británicos, que ya venían especulando con el tema, la reina Isabel II se enteró del embarazo de Meghan el viernes. El hijo de los duques de Sussex será su octavo bisnieto y ocupará el séptimo lugar en la línea sucesoria al trono británico, justo después de Harry.

Apenas se conoció la noticia, se desataron las especulaciones sobre el nombre del bebé real: las apuestas apuntan a Alicia, Diana, Isabel o Victoria en caso de que sea niña, y a Arturo, Jaime, Felipe o Eduardo si es un niño.
