Meghan Markle Due Date: Mostly Revealed!

We have an update on Meghan Markle's pregnancy.

And it may just center on the exact piece of news for which you've been clamoring!

Pondering Life Choices

Earlier today, the world was stopped in its tracks when Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry confirmed that they are expecting their first child.

EVER!

Social media users had been wondering for weeks whether Markle was pregnant, with most of them convinced this was the case just a day prior to the official announcement, considering the outfit Markle wore to a wedding on Saturday.

They can now take pride in being correct for a change, following a Kensington Place statement that reads:

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.

The spring of 2019 is pretty vague, of course.

The Palace did not reveal whether Markle is due in March... or April... or May... or June.

The New Duchess

However, an insider now tells Us Weekly that the former Suits actress is about 15 weeks along.

Even more specifically, according to this source...

“She is due on or around May 2nd."

This would be especially cool because Princess Charlotte, the adorable daughter of Kate Middleton and Prince William, was born on May 2, 2015.

They could be birthday buddies!!!!!

This may be just one reason why the Palace says Kate and William are "delighted" that Meghan is expecting.

Harry and Meghan, who recently kicked off their their first international tour together in Australia, will be staying at Nottingham Cottage when they become a family of three.

The cottage was recently renovated.

It now includes two nurseries, sources close to the Royal Family have said.

This could mean that Markle is pregnant with twins, but it more likely means that she and Harry won't be finished procreating after their first bundle of joy arrives.

Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan Markle

If the child-to-be is born on May 2, this would make him or her a Taurus.

It would also mean she'd share a birthday not just with Charlotte... but with Dwayne Johnson and David Beckham as well!

How amazing would that be?!?

Elsewhere, while we wait to see what hateful things Samantha Markle has to say about this blessed development, we can quote Prime Minister Theresa May, who has said the following:

"My warmest congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on the happy news they are expecting a baby in the Spring. Wishing them all the best."

We feel the very same way!

Kate Middleton and Prince William React to Royal Baby News

Royal Congratulations continue to pour forth for the Royal Couple who are all set to welcome another Royal Baby.

Early on Monday, Kate Middleton and Prince William confirmed the news that so many Royal Followers had been hoping to hear for weeks:

They are, indeed, expecting their first child.

Kate Reacts

The announcement was made by Kensington Palace itself, which said the following in an official statement to the world:

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.

Their Royal Highnesses have appreciated all of the support they have received from people around the world since their wedding in May and are delighted to be able to share this happy news with the public.

We don't know exact due date or the gender, but Markle is reportedly "feeling well" and has successfully completed her 12-week wellness exam.

This really is so very exciting.

Prince and Duchess

And we're not the only ones who feel this say.

The Palace has also stated that Kate Middleton and Prince William are "delighted" by Markle's pregnancy, although no further details related to their reaction have been revealed just yet.

(Perhaps because Middleton must now figure out a way to announce she is also pregnant and due on the same day?)

Elsewhere, Meghan's mom is pretty psyched about the development.

"Ms. Ragland is very happy about this lovely news. She looks forward to welcoming her first grandchild," the Palace said today on her behalf.

 
Ogling Her Prince

Neither Markle's controversial father nor her totally awful half-sister has said a word about Meghan's miraculous state.

Sadly, though, it's probably only a matter of time.

We need not wait to hear from other key members of the United Kingdom society, though.

Prime Minister Theresa May said in a statement:

“My warmest congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on the happy news they are expecting a baby in the Spring. Wishing them all the best."

And this is from Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, who married the couple in St. George’s Chapel in May:

"Congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on their happy news! Prayers for them in the months ahead."

Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan Markle

Harry and Meghan are currently in Sydney, Australia, where they have kicked off the first day of their 16-day tour, which will also see them travel to New Zealand, Tonga and Fiji.

Sounds like fun!

At some point, Markle will need to scale back on some Royal Duties due to her pregnancy, but that time has not yet arrived.

Over the weekend, speculation about Meghan's womb grew stronger than ever after she showed up at Princess Eugenie's wedding in an overcoat... and kept it on throughout the ceremony.

This is what Twitter users had to say in response to the ensemble...

... and, for once, they were right!

Meghan Markle is pregnant!

Prince Harry is going to be a father!

We send the couple our very best wishes.

Meghan Markle’s Mother is HYPED for a Royal Grandbaby!

It's official, folks -- Meghan Markle is really pregnant. She is due in the spring.

After months of impatience and speculation, Kensington Palace has confirmed it to be true.

And now Meghan's mother has released a statement of her own about her daughter's happy news.

Meghan Markle, Mom

In a statement to Entertainment Tonight, Kensington Palace revealed how Meghan's mom Doria Ragland has responded to the pregnancy.

"Ms. Ragland is very happy about this lovely news," Kensington Palace shared with ET.

Obviously, this almost certainly isn't new information to Doria. We imagine that she was one of the first people told.

"And," Kensington Palace continued. "She looks forward to welcoming her first grandchild."

That, of course, is no surprise. It's a grandbaby and a royal baby, all in one!

The Palace declined to comment on whether Thomas Markle has been notified about his impending grandchild.

Rocking the Overcoat

Just last month, Doria joined her royal daughter for a very special event.

Meghan's first real project as Duchess of Sussex was promoting a cookbook that celebrates a beautiful blending of cultures.

Everyone likes food, and food can be a powerful symbol of pluralism, so it was a great project.

While in the UK, Doria has reportedly been introducing herself as "Meghan's mum," which is adorable.

It has been said that it was Prince Harry's idea to have her come over and stay for a while.

She's been a source of comfort as Meghan has had to deal with her other relatives.

Doria Arrives

Meghan's pregnancy has passed the 12-week mark, the Palace has confirmed.

Meghan and Harry are currently at the start of a 2-week royal tour of Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, and Tonga.

Though Meghan's pregnancy has been confirmed to be in good health, there have been warnings of Zika virus in Tonga and Fiji.

The Zika virus is transmitted through mosquitoes and can be devastating to a fetus.

Despite this, Harry and Meghan apparently intend to stick to their plans.

Samantha Markle on TV

Speaking of annoying pests, it was reported that Samantha Grant showed up to Kensington Palace only to be refused entry.

"The palace doesn’t want to dignify any of it," the Palace said when asked about Meghan's evil half-sister.

The statement explained that they declined to comment "because it just adds fuel to the fire."

"Samantha revels in the attention," the palace admitted.

The Palace then affirmed: "Meghan is not corresponding with her sister or her father."

Meghan Markle with Straight Hair

Meghan has now known for weeks -- perhaps even months -- that she is pregnant.

This must have compounded the pain of her tragically unavoidable estrangement from her terrible father, Thomas Markle.

Before the wedding, Thomas was exposed making deals with paparazzi to pose for staged photographs in exchange for kickbacks.

After the controversy, he did not attend the wedding, and then began blabbing to every news outlet that would give him air time.

This is unacceptable behavior for anyone and scandalizing to the royal family -- and deeply hurtful to Meghan.

She can now no longer trust her father with a phone call, for fear that he'll repeat everything in an interview.

For this reason, she wouldn't have been able to even share this happy news with him.

Ogling Her Prince

Though Harry and Meghan's child will be a royal baby, they are not expecting a prince or princess.

Because Harry is not a direct heir to the throne, a son of his would be Earl of Dumbarton -- an earldom bestowed upon him by the Queen on his wedding day.

However, Queen Elizabeth could intervene and declare that Harry and Meghan's children are princes and princesses if she so chooses.

This would mean that they remain part of the royal family will all of its various perks, even if they would never realistically sit upon the throne.

Given Harry's admission that being a royal is less than ideal, this may never happen.

Meghan Markle: Pregnant With First Child! Yes, For Real!!!!!

Go ahead and celebrate, Internet.

You finally got it right.

yes for us

Just a day after social media users took a look at Meghan Markle's ensemble at Princess Eugenie's wedding and presumed she was pregnant, the former actress and her very handsome husband confirmed the major news ...

... she really is pregnant!

For reals!

This is not a drill or another example of endless speculation.

Another Royal Baby is on the way!

Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan Markle

Just ask Kensington Palace, which released the following statement on Monday morning:

“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.

"Their Royal Highnesses have appreciated all of the support they have received from people around the world since their wedding in May and are delighted to be able to share this happy news with the public."

Happy?

More like downright ecstatic and amazing!

Royally Great

As noted directly above, Markle and Harry got married on May 19.

By about May 20, nearly anyone with a pulse was wondering when they would make this exact announcement.

The stars have not been shy about their desire to procreate, with many observers keeping a close eye on Markle's fashion choices and even hairstyle (yes, hairstyle) to determine whether she was expecting or not.

So now the wild guesses can end.

And the planning stage can begin.

palace announce

According to a People Magazine source, Markle is 12 weeks along.

This means, knock on many pieces of wood, that the Duchess is past the point where most miscarriages occur, hence her comfort with alerting the world to her status.

She recently underwent a scan and is "feeling well," this same insider says.

The news comes hours after Meghan and Harry touched down in Australia for their first international tour together.

In other words, the pregnancy is not getting in the way (yet) of Markle fulfilling her many Royal Duties.

Meghan Markle Breaks Tradition

In the couple's very first joint interview in November of 2017 Harry evealed that the two are keen to “start a family in the near future."

Hence the rumors and all the chatter that has been following them around since.

Markle's mother, Doria Ragland, issued a statement via Kensington Palace shortly after the pregnancy was confirmed, saying to the world:

“Ms. Ragland is very happy about this lovely news and she looks forward to welcoming her first grandchild.�

Meghan Markle with Straight Hair

Markle's father Thomas, meanwhile, is also angry that he hasn't seen an ultrasound photo yet. So typical.

Samantha Markle, her half-sister, says the baby will be "hideous and disgusting, just like his or her mother."

Just kidding about those last two reactions ... but you have to admit, you could see that happening, right?

For real, however, Prince William and Kate Middleton are “delighted� for the couple - as are Queen Elizabeth, Prince Philip, Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, the Palace says.

As a final fact check:

We do not Markle's exact due date. Moreover, we do not know whether she has a little boy or girl growing inside of her.

Based on the three times Middleton has been pregnant, however, we can expect to learn these pieces of information as time goes on.

For now, let's not worry about the details and let's just celebrate the development itself.

CONGRATULATIONS TO MEGHAN AND HARRY!!!!!

Prince Harry: CAUGHT Flirting With His Ex?

We're sure life as a member of a royal family consists of more positives than negatives.

But we also think it's safe to say there are more downsides to palace living than most people realize.

Meghan Markle in Blue Dress: A Photo

Take Meghan Markle, for example.

Sure, she's a global icon, and she's so beloved that when she wears a dress to an event it sells out of stores the next day.

But her life isn't all tiaras and photo-ops.

Meghan Markle with Straight Hair

For one thing, there's all that arcane royal protocol that Meghan has been forced to master.

We're guessing that nonsense has left her longing for the comparatively simple life of a working actress.

But even worse than remembering a phone book's worth of rules for the benefit of the half-dozen traditionalist snobs who actually pay attention to that crap is the fact that Meghan now lives her life in the world's largest fishbowl.

Meghan Markle Goes to See Hamilton

We know all about the awful Markle family and if there's ever even the slightest indication that Meg and Harry's relationship is anything less than flawless it instantly becomes fodder for tabloid headlines all over the world.

Today, for example, it's being widely claimed that Harry acted flirtatiously during a recent encounter with ex-girlfriend Jenna Coleman.

Yes, it's not even one of his more recent exes, but still, the news that Harry's eye might be wandering just a few months into married life was enough to trigger pearl-clutching all over the British Empire.

Ogling Her Prince

Here's what we actually know:

There was a run-in between Harry and Jenna, who encountered one another during some recent rich people event in Amsterdam, but witnesses say it was anything but flirty.

“Harry had to walk straight past Jenna to get to his and Meghan’s table," one onlooker tells Vanity Fair.

Markle Waves

“It was pretty awkward and some of the other guests were commenting on it," the source continues.

"Jenna looked down while Harry looked straight ahead, while Meghan didn’t seem to notice."

The witness goes on to say that Harry did everything in his power to avoid Jenna:

Megs and Harry

"She sat through breakfast with a smile on her face, but Harry looked a bit uncomfortable," claims the source.

"He’d been super friendly saying hi to everyone, but he didn’t even acknowledge Jenna.�

As you can tell, this is all pretty scandalous stuff.

Hopefully, Meg went into this thing with the knowledge that "news" like this will make the rounds pretty much every time her husband is in the company of another woman for the rest of his natural life.

Royals to Meghan Markle: Learn to Follow the Rules or You Can GTFO!

It's been four months since Meghan Markle married Prince Harry, and saying that Meg's life has changed dramatically in that time would be like saying things in this country started to get a little wacky around November of 2016.

With the possible exception of Kate Middleton, Hailey Baldwin, and Pete Davidson, literally no one can relate to what Meghan is going through.

Meghan Markle Goes to See Hamilton

Sure, she was somewhat famous in her own right before she met Harry, but we'll never not lol at the British press and their attempts to make it sound like Harry lured an A-list mega-star away from her wildly successful career.

The fact is, while she was doing better than about 98 percent of working actors, roughly that same percentage of the global population had never heard the name Meghan Markle.

We say all of this not to shame Meg -- again, she was making serious bank doing what she loves -- but merely to highlight the fact that she went from relative no-namer to global icon overnight.

A Gorgeous Duchess

That would be stressful under any circumstances, but Meg has the additional pressure of trying to learn about 500 years' worth of customs and traditions in order to appease her new in-laws.

You may have heard the rumors about Meghan breaking royal protocol, and experts on this sort of thing have confirmed that the Duchess of Sussex is guilty of quite a few faux pas.

Sadly, these sleights are minor things like holding Harry's hand in public -- nothing cool like getting hammered and wrapping herself in an American flag at a formal dinner.

Ogling Her Prince

No one can really blame Meghan for overstepping her bounds here and there, as she's still new to the role of pointless figurehead.

But she's soon to face the first major challenge of her royal career, and the stakes couldn't be higher -- which means there's very little room for error.

Meghan and Harry will soon depart on their first royal tour as a couple.

Meghan Markle in Blue Dress

Together, they'll visit a number of countries that help comprise the British Empire, which is somehow still a thing.

And at each stop, they'll be expected to adopt the manners and customs of the dignitaries they'll be visiting.

"The Duchess of Sussex will have a team of Royal aids within the palace that are there to assist her in every way to prepare for her formal engagements," royal etiquette expert Myka Meier tells Cosmo.

The New Duchess

"As a senior member of the Royal family, she is a working royal with roles and responsibilities to fulfill on behalf of the family," Meier adds.

"In order to show respect to the people she is meeting, she will be briefed ahead of each event on the Senior people she will be meeting and how to greet and address them, solely in order to show respect.

"From assisting her with what to wear all the way to important topics to speak about, she will have help to ensure she is fully prepared."

As a Duchess

And it's not just Meghan's behavior that's soon to be scrutinized on the global stage.

Those in the know will also be paying close attention to how the Duchess is dressed:

"When traveling, we often see the Royals adopt the customs and culture of the country they are in," Meier says.

Duchess of Sussex

"For instance, if in a country they visit it’s a sign of respect to dress in a certain way, they will do so. Often we see Royals wearing outfits from local designers, too, to show respect and support for the country they are visiting."

It may seem petty, but in the eyes of royalty experts, this is the sort of thing that will determine if Meg has the ability to play a diplomatic role, or if she'll simply attend fancy parties for a living.

Fortunately, the Queen has arranged for Meg to be thoroughly trained before her departure:

The Markle

"Senior Royals will have a team of aids within the palace that help prepare them for every event they are attending and speaking at," Meier says.

"They will be briefed on who they are meeting, and any significant protocol behind addressing other important guests as well as any political, religious or cultural sensitivities to be aware of."

Is it just us, or does marrying royalty sound like it involves a seriously obnoxious amount of work?

Meghan Markle: Harry is Spoiling Me and I LOVE It!

Though we've heard that Prince Harry's friends don't like Meghan Markle because she's a good person, Harry is still very much in love with her.

In fact, even months after their wedding, Harry is reportedly showering her with affection in various forms.

Meghan feels that he's spoiling her rotten.

Ogling Her Prince

Some couples find that their romance dies shortly after moving in together or shortly after they get married, because they're no longer actively courting.

But HollywoodLife reports that Harry and Meghan are still in their honeymoon phase.

"Harry has been pampering Meghan more than ever," an insider reports.

And Meghan is apparently very appreciative.

"She’s been raving about how he’s only become more attentive and loving since they got married," the source describes.

Prince and Duchess

There is one display of affection in particular that seems to really make an impression.

"He has fresh flowers delivered every single week," the insider reveals.

The source goes on to specify that these flowers are "usually her favorite peonies."

Peonies are popular garden plants in temperate climates, but are a very appropriate favorite for Meghan -- as they are native to both North America and to Europe.

The insider continues: "Meghan says that alone makes her feel so spoiled."

A Ride Through Town

Harry's desire to treat Meghan like the duchess she is extends into their private lives, as well.

"And she says he gives her the most amazing foot rubs," the source dishes.

The insider shares that these footrubs usually go down "when they stay in and watch their favorite TV shows."

That is so sweet!

As the source says: "Meghan still can’t get over how incredibly lucky she is to have found this man."

Markle Waves

Flowers and footrubs are classic romantic gestures, and it's great to hear about a couple where that sort of thing continues on days that aren't anniversaries or birthdays.

"But probably the sweetest and most thoughtful thing he’s done so far," the insider says. "Was arrange to have her mom come over."

The source reveals: "It was his idea to invite her to come stay for as long as she wants."

"Meghan and her mom are both very cautious not to be pushy," the insider shares. "But Harry insisted on it, he wants Meghan to have her mom with her."

As the source explains: "It’s his way of trying to make her happy after all the terrible drama with her father."

Meghan and the Prince

That is so sweet and thoughtful of Harry to give Meghan that solace from her awful family by giving her some time with her mother.

As always, we're a little cautious about buying into unconfirmed reports, especially about this particular royal couple.

But ... this is really touching and easy to believe. Personalized romantic gestures mean so much, especially when someone is going through a rough time.

This should be one of the happiest times in Meghan's life -- and we hope that it is.

We just wish that this summer hadn't been marred by Meghan's father and siblings trying to tear down her happiness.

Prince Harry’s Friends: Meghan Markle Is a Lame-Ass Hippie!

In the months since Prince Harry married Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex has likely learned some hard lessons about life as a royal.

We're sure plenty of people warned her that life as a member of the world's most famous family would present its share of challenges, but it's one thing to be warned and quite another to experience such scrutiny for one's self.

Prince and Duchess

With the possible exception of a handful of Hollywood A-listers, no one knows what it's like to be in Meghan's shoes.

And Markle's situation is especially strange, as she became a global household name relatively late in life after spending most of her adult years as a virtual unknown starring on a basic cable legal drama.

These days everything from Meghan's awful family to her political views is considered fair game by the tabloid press.

And it seems the latter has recently brought her into conflict with her new husband's friends.

Meg and Har

Word of this clash in ideologies comes to us courtesy of Lady Colin Campbell, a longtime of Princess Di's who recently penned a controversial book about the Queen's tumultuous marriage.

In a surprisingly candid interview with The Daily Beast, Campbell revealed that Meghan's views are far too progressive for Harry's more right-leaning circle of friends.

"Her politics are an issue," said Campbell.

"She is ultra-liberal and that trendy-lefty stuff does not go down well with some of Harry’s friends."

Markle Waves

We can't imagine Meg's beliefs came as much of a shock.

After all, her humanitarian work and outspoken views on gender inequality have been major facets of her public life for years.

But apparently, there are certain issues that Meghan and Harry failed to come to terms with before getting married -- such as the fact that he and his friends enjoy using big guns to kill small woodland creatures.

"He has introduced her to them all at parties and weddings and private dinners, but she is very anti- a lot of the things that their world functions upon, such as shooting," Campbell claimed.

Megs and Harry

Campbell went on to say that these relatively small differences in the couple's worldviews have contributed to Meghan's feelings of isolation.

"Everybody discovers after marrying into the royal family how solitary and arduous an existence it can be. Meghan has already begun to discover this," Campbell said.

Normally, we'd encourage Meghan to turn to her family, but they'd end up recording the conversation and selling it off to the highest bidder.

This has been our 47 bajillionth installment of Royal Life Ain't All It's Cracked Up To Be.

Kate Middleton Gives Meghan Markle Weird-Ass Advice on How to Get Pregnant

It's been almost four months since Meghan Markle married Prince Harry in a ceremony that inspired Ashleys the world over to make the ill-fated decision to wear a fancy hat to brunch the next day.

Naturally, the rumors about Meghan being pregnant with Harry's baby began almost immediately after the ceremony, but thus far, there's been no official announcement from Buckingham Palace.

Meg and Har

Obviously, there's nothing remotely unusual about a couple that's been married less than four months being childless, but since Meghan is 37, and she and Harry have both spoken publicly about wanting to raise a large family, it was widely assumed they'd get right down to the business of making babies.

At thisn point, it seems Meghan remains un-knocked up, but she's hoping to change that soon -- and sources say she's turned to her sister-in-law for advice.

“Meghan has been getting baby making tips from all her friends with kids, including Duchess Kate," one insider tells Hollywood Life.

Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton! Together!

"Kate told her to drink more tea. That was her big piece of advice. She’s embraced all the British traditions and has started drinking tea at tea time.�

Well, if that isn't the most British reproductive advice in history!

Of course, Kate said to drink effing tea!

Meghan, being a grown-ass woman, probably came to her sister-in-law asking advice and expected Kate to suggest a position or something.

Markle and Middleton

Instead, she gets told to bust out her doilies and get sippin'.

"I say, the Queen Mum used to maintain that a spot of Earl Grey will fill your belly with the very pastiest of heirs," Kate probably said, clutching her pearls at this American's effrontery. 

The crazy part is, it seems Meg is actually listening to Kate's advice:

“She’s not really sure if it will make any difference in helping her get pregnant, which she’s very graciously following Kate’s advice," says the source.

Meghan Markle Goes to See Hamilton

We hope she at least put an American spin on the situation and started guzzling 99 cent cans of Arizona.

Fortunately, Kate's not the only one offering Meghan conception tips.

It seems the Duchess of Sussex has also been in touch with her friends back on this side of the pond, who have been a bit more helpful in their advice.

“Her friends in Toronto are more holistic minded, so they’ve offered tips like practicing more yin style yoga and doing a nightly meditation," says the insider.

Ogling Her Prince

"Meghan’s not obsessing about getting pregnant, but she’s very open to everyone’s ideas. She’s a naturally curious person, so she loves learning what worked for her friends when it comes to their fertility.�

That's good, because so far her friends are offering lame-ass advice that has nothing to do with putting the old peener in the va-jay-jay.

We kid, of course. The Duke and Duchess probably don't need much advice on that part of the process:

Markle Waves

“Meghan and Harry are enjoying non-stop baby-making sex at all hours of the day," says the insider.

"Meghan has an app on her phone that tracks of her fertility, so when she is most likely to conceive.

"That means in the mornings, afternoons and at night, they make time for love with a baby being the goal…and Harry is not complaining at all. There may not be a bun in her oven yet, but they are having fun trying.�

That sound you just heard was everyone in England over the age of 50 gasping in unison at such frank talk of a royal's sex life.

Samantha Markle: Happy Birthday Prince Harry, You Filthy Rodent!

Prince Harry was born on September 15, 1984. As of Saturday, he is 34 years old.

And who better to wish him a happy birthday than Meghan Markle's vile sister?

In her bizarre and spiteful tweet, Samantha Markle compares Prince Harry to ... a hamster.

Making an Animal

In a tweet on her locked Twitter account, which is only viewable by her approved followers, Samantha Grant -- often known as Samantha Markle -- posted a less-than-friendly birthday tribute.

"Happy Birthday Harry!" she writes to her brother-in-law.

"As you 'mack down' on your birthday cake," her hostile message begins.

She then advises him to "think about the birthday wishes you never extended to your FATHER-IN-LAW."

To top it all off, she makes an unflattering visual comparison -- seeming to equate Harry to a hamster.

Samantha Grant tweet happy birthday prince harry 2018

This is no surprise.

Not only can this simply be added to the lengthy list of rude posts that Samantha has made towards her half-sister and the royals, but she did the same to Meghan just last month.

"Happy Birthday Meg!" she tweeted on August 14, which was Meghan's 37th birthday.

"It would be so lovely and appropriate of you to send DAD a BELATED birthday card for his," Samantha badgered.

Samantha then reminded Meghan that Thomas Markle's birthday is "July 18th."

Meghan Markle Unhappy

Birthdays are far from the only occassions that Samantha has used social media to lash out at Meghan and Harry.

It seems that Samantha considers the two to be fair game on any day ending with a -y.

"Act like a humanitarian act like a woman!" Samantha demanded of Meghan in one tweet. "If our father dies I'm holding you responsible, Meg!"

"OK so Cruella Deville is retreating LOL..." Samantha wrote in another tweet. "Let me know how that works out for you."

The legendary Disney character's name is Cruella de Vil, and we have to say that we don't really see her as a very 

Samantha Grant

Samantha, along with her brother Thomas Markle Jr. and their father, Thomas Markle Sr., seems dedicated to giving Meghan a hard time in the media.

This doesn't really do much aside from annoy the Royals -- remember, just a few centuries ago, "trouble with your in-laws" for that family meant a continental war.

But it has to be a wound to Meghan herself, who remained in contact with her father until he proved that he could not be trusted.

Now that he spills every detail of every conversation with her or with Harry, she can't trust him to not do so if she calls him. But Samantha will never forgive Meghan for that.

Meghan Markle Unhappy

But Meghan is living her own life, married to one of the most famously desired men on the planet.

The most recent news out of Kensington Palace is that Meghan is supporting an intersectional cookbook that talks about how food brings families and communities together.

It's just sad that, through their own poor choices, a few of Meghan's family members have chosen to tear apart their own family because they're seemingly high on fame.

We should note that Meghan's mom has conducted herself with dignity throughout everything, which is why she was invited to the Royal Wedding.

Samantha is probably going to keep on hurling jabs at Meghan until no one cares anymore. That's kind of pitiful.

Prince Harry is Just Railing Meghan Markle 24/7, Source Alleges

According to a revealing new report, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are very busy these days.

Doing what, you may be wondering?

Doing EACH OTHER, a possibly reliable source claims!

Indeed, with rumors circulating around the Internet that Markle is already pregnant with the couple's first child, this insider tells Hollywood Life that such claims are premature.

There is no small human growing inside Markle's womb. Not yet anyway.

But this doesn't mean Harry and his relatively new wife aren't doing all they can to make it happen.

They totally are. They are totally engaged in some Royal Railing as often as possible.

"Harry is having the best time of his life with his new bride," some random person who apparently knows everything tells Hollywood Life, adding:

"Meghan and Harry are enjoying non-stop baby-making sex at all hours of the day."

Ogling Her Prince

It's unclear just how this person knows that Harry is sticking his scepter inside Meghan's throne (if you know what we mean!), but Hollywood Life seems pretty confident in its report.

And this person seems very much aware of what sort of sex schedule is being kept by the gorgeous Prince and Duchess.

“Meghan has an app on her phone that tracks of her fertility, so when she is most likely to conceive, her and Harry make the most of their time together," the article states.

Over the past few weeks, chatter of Markle's alleged pregnancy has grown stronger than ever.

It's inevitable that the couple will conceive; it's only a matter of when the blessed event will happen and if Great Britain will survive the chaos that ensues on the baby is confirmed.

Meg and Har

Oddsmakers and gambling websites across the ocean are banking on an announcement maybe coming as soon as this weekend.

But the aforementioned insider explains that Markle is not actually knocked up yet -- although the stars certainly would receive an A for effort!

"In the mornings, afternoons and at night, they make time for love with a baby being the goal," this really knowledgable person details, saying of the Prince:

"Harry is not complaining at all!"

Well, no. How could he when his mouth is full of his wife's bosom at all hours of everyday?

Royal Bride and Groom

For the record, however, Harry and Markle are not full-time residents of Pound Town because they feel pressure to have a baby.

They are too smart and too mature for that.

They are well aware of the responsibilties of having a parent and would never make this decision just because a few websites are wondering when it will happen.

Heck, Hollywood Life concludes, they don't even know what is being discussed on social media.

"[Meghan] and Harry really don’t pay much attention to all the rumors, as they accept that it’s just part and parcel of being who they are," says this source.

Meghan Markle Pregnancy Announcement: Coming This Weekend?

Is Meghan Markle pregnant?

You bet.

No, really, you can now bet on this rumor, along with when Markle and Prince Harry will break their major news to the world.

Making an Animal

According to Bookmakers.tv and Coral, the chances that Markle and Harry are expecting are stronger than ever, with the former gambling service having slashed its odds of a Royal Baby arriving in 2019 from 4/6 to 1/5.

The latter site has their odds down to one quarter.

For those non-wagering experts out there, the bottom line is simple:

You would need to bet a serious amount of money in order to win back a serious amount of money... because these professional bookies think it's practically inevitable that Markle is pregnant.

Such chatter has been circulated on the Internet for months, but it does seem to have been ratched up of late.

There's THIS PHOTO, for instance, which many Internet users think clearly depicts a baby bump.

And there's also the nugget that Markle and Harry have reportedly asked workers to include two nurseries with the renovations being done to their new residence.

Not only do these bookies think a baby is inside of Markle's womb, they think she will make this fact public knowledge any day now.

Explains Harry Aitkenhead, the head of wagering company Coral:

"It’s Prince Harry’s 34th birthday this weekend and with the couple making no secret of their desire to start a family, we think that it’s almost inevitable now that the latest Royal baby will be arriving in 2019."

So there you have it.

This is pure speculation, but still. It's there.

As for what Harry and the Duchess of Sussex will name their firstborn?

Odds favrr James at the moment, if it's a boy, of course.

The couple is about to head out on a 16-day tour around Australia, Fiji, the Kingdom of Tonga and New Zealand, according to Kensington Palace.

This could mean that an announcement is NOT likely because the stars will be so hard to reach immediately afterward; or it could mean that an announcement is imminent because Harry and Markle won't need to deal with a gaggle of press inquiries in the days after it is made.

We just don't know for certain.

Ogling Her Prince

Markle and Harry have verified on occasion that they very much want to start a family.

But they never really said when and they've managed to remain mum on the subject, even while tabloids spread various lies and gossip.

Heck, Meghan has even managed to remain quiet in the face of endless taunts and insults from her very own father and half-sister, the latter of whom recently referred to Markle as a DuchASS.

Yes, this really happened.

Let's hope said this half-sister never meets Markle and Harry's offspring.

Meghan Markle: Proof That She’s Actually Pregnant Revealed?!

Pretty much from the moment Meghan Markle and Prince Harry said "I do," royal watchers have been scrutinizing the couple's every move for indications that a new little prince or princess is on the way.

Rumors that Meghan is pregnant with Harry's baby seem to pop up at the rate of about three a week, but these days, it's looking as though there's real reason to believe the Duchess of Sussex has a bun in the oven.

According to The Daily Star, Meghan's mother, Doria Ragland, is planning to move to the UK in the very near future.

Not only that, the tabloid reports that Raglans has been taking classes in infant care during her visits to London.

"Two of the teachers, Brandi and Hannah, are training Doria at her home half an hour away to avoid attracting unwanted attention,” a source tells the outlet.

It seems Meghan is averse to the idea of hiring nannies and other childcare professionals to help around Kensington Palace.

Meghan Markle, Mom

Instead, she'd like Doria to move in and help attend to the needs of the newest royal.

“Meghan wants to avoid hiring staff if possible once her first child arrives," says the insider.

"The thought of having her mum move in with them and take on the role of baby nurse is the best possible solution to that."

Fortunately, it sounds as though Doria is just as excited about the arrangement as Meghan is:

"It's something Doria has always wanted to do anyway," the source claims.

"She already specializes in prenatal yoga."

Yes, in addition to raising children of her own, Doria has been assisting new and expectant moms throughout her career.

And it seems she's already learned a great deal in the few weeks that she's been taking childcare classes:

The New Duchess

"She’s learned everything from breastfeeding and lactation consultancy, basic baby care, CPR and first aid," the insider says.

"The course also covers sleep training for later on, weaning and helping the new mother with her recovery.”

Sounds like Doria's got this thing on lock.

Which is nice, especially since the rest of Meghan's family is so terrible.

At least Doria is helping to balance things out a bit in that regard.

Meghan Markle Pregnant? Latest Appearance Sparks Fresh Round of Rumors

Could it be true?

Might it finally be the case?

Do we at last have a reason to celebrate?

These are the questions being posed by Royal Family fans around the Internet right about now, as a new round of Meghan Markle pregnant rumors are spreading throughout social media. 

Meghan Markle and a Possible Bump

The speculation is nearing an all-time high after the Duchess of Sussex attended the 100 Days to Peace Gala in London on Thursday, with all eyes fixated on her blue bespoke Jason Wu dress.

It's a beautiful number, about that there is no doubt.

But was it covering an even more beautiful baby bump?

Based on the type of gown Markle was donning, along with the position of her hands at times and the possible protrusion of her stomach, this is what some folks now believe.

“I have a feeling Meghan Markle is pregnant,” wrote on random individual, while another noted that the former actress appears to have “glowing” skin and shinier hair than usual.

Those would both be signs of pregnancy.

And while it's pretty much impossible to figure out such a status based on a handful of photos, we have to admit:

We sort of see where these folks are coming from.

We're not saying Markle is pregnant for certain.

But we've heard more outlandish claims based on far less revealing photos.

A Gorgeous Duchess

For whatever it's worth, Markle's awful father has said multiple times of late that she and Prince Harry want to start a family in the near future.

There have been tabloid covers left and rght ever since the stars got married in May that alleged a child was on the way.

Heck, sometimes there's been talk of TWO kids being on the way.

But an Us Weekly insider says folks should slow their pregnancy roll in this case.

Meghan Markle Goes to See Hamilton

We're not sure if this person knows anything for absolute certain, but this is what the source tells the magazine:

“Chalk this pregnancy speculation to an unflattering dress and wind.

"Meghan and Harry have a busy rest of the year. They are excited to start a family but have always wanted to focus the first year of marriage on their official work and starting to bring awareness to causes close to them.

"That is their main focus before starting a family.”

Ogling Her Prince

Fans do need to remember that the couple has not even been married for six months.

It does seem very likely that they will be parents at some point, but that point may be the year 2020 or 2021. Perhaps even 2022.

They are not in any rush, even if the desire is very much there.

“I’ve longed for kids since I was very, very young,” Harry told ABC News in May 2012, adding at the time:

“I’m waiting to find the right person, someone who is willing to take on the job.”

We think it's safe to say he found that person.

But when their lives calm down a bit and they have more time to plan out their future, that's when we're guessing the unprotected Royal pounding will begin.

Meghan Markle Was Followed By James Bond-Style Badasses on the Set of Suits

Back in May, Meghan Markle married Prince Harry in a ceremony that gave the world a reason to believe in love and forget about mass shootings for a few hours.

Of course, as you probably know, even before she landed the world's most eligible bachelor, Meghan was no stranger to the spotlight.

Meghan Markle Unhappy

Prior to being dubbed the Duchess of Sussex -- which is a title that was literally invented for her, because royalty is a weird-ass institution -- Meghan was one of the stars of the long-running USA Network series Suits.

If you've never seen an episode of the show, you're not alone.

Like Burn Notice and Rizzoli & Isles before it, Suits is one of those shows that's been on forever, even though you don't know anyone who will cop to watching it.

It's the "voting for Trump" of basic cable.

Meghan Markle Goes to See Hamilton

The point is, Meghan lived a public life before she married Harry, but she was certainly no A-lister.

Which is why it's a little weird that she enjoyed the protection of an agent from the UK's vaunted MI5 security agency.

Wendell Pierce, a longtime co-star of Meghan's recently opened up to Extra about the awkward period of time after Meghan and Harry had gone public with their relationship, but before she retired from acting.

"I actually didn’t think it was real, then all of a sudden I turn round and there is a guy from MI5 on set every day," Pierce said. 

Meghan Markle: An Image

"The one thing that was clear [was that] she was extremely happy," the actor added.

"She had a glow. I knew she was in love. With the whirlwind of publicity and the world of being a royal now, the one thing that’s constant is the fact that I know she loves him."

Obviously, it's funny to imagine some Statham-esque mercenary following Meghan around the set and putting blow darts in the neck of any co-star who looked at her askance.

But it's important to note that there was nothing funny about the circumstances that likely led to the decision to deploy an agent for Meg's protection.

Ogling Her Prince

As you may recall, in the early days of her relationship with Harry, Meghan was subjected to racist vitriol from hateful dipsh-ts the world over.

We knew that the situation got so bad that Harry felt the need to issue a public statement telling the bigots to back off.

But until now, we had no idea that Buckingham Palace felt she needed a personal security detail.

Scary stuff.

Fortunately, the story has a happy ending -- just not for the 12 diehard fans keeping Suits on the air.

Meghan Markle Storms Out After Wild Fight With Harry (Report)

Back in May, the whole world tuned in to watch Prince Harry marry Meghan Markle in a lavish ceremony straight from the pages of a fairytale.

Unfortunately, in the months since, life for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex hasn't been all "happily ever after ..."

Meg and Har

Much of the tension over the past few months has had to do with Meghan's family.

In case you've been blissfully unaware of their existence, the Markle clan is the absolute worst.

We've known this since long before the wedding, thanks to Samantha Markle's efforts to destroy her sister for the crime of marrying a guy that makes her husband look like some lame-ass.

(For the record, most guys probably look like some lame-ass compared to Harry, but we're sure whatever doofus could be duped into marrying Samantha Markle is especially lame.)

Markle Waves

The Markles have really stepped their game up in the months since Harry and Meghan exchanged vows, beginning with Thomas Markle's decision to skip the wedding by faking a heart attack.

Now, we're sure it stings a bit to find out that your father faked a medical emergency just to wriggle out of watching you get married, but remarkably, it seems Meghan is still defending her family.

And it seems Harry is quickly becoming fed up with his new wife's forgiving nature.

"After weeks of embarrassment over her family drama, she finally snapped and channeled her frustration into their first row,” a source close to the couple tells OK! magazine.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Stare at Each Other

“Meghan crying about how trapped she feels by royal rules and Harry venting about how mortifying it’s been for him to deal with her family’s constant publicity-grubbing."

And apparently, it's not just Harry's new in-laws who are causing trouble in royal paradise.

The insider claims that Meghan feels Harry is stumbling in his transition from bachelor to married man, a fact evidenced by his stubborn refusal to part ways with his man cave.

“In the early days, Meghan kept quiet about how much she hated the laddishness and tastelessness of it all," says the source.

Harry! And Megan!

"Meghan hoped to get rid of Harry’s man cave and give their home a classy makeover"

The insider adds that what started out as a lighthearted debate has begun to take a toll on Harry:

"Harry is complaining about being a henpecked husband already,” the tipster.

Apparently, last week the tension became too much for Meghan to take and she decided to hop across the pond to spend a few days with her former Suits co-stars:

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry: In Love!

“She decided that flying to Toronto to see her old friends would be just the thing to clear her head,” the source claims.

“Meghan hopes that a few days apart from Harry will help simmer their tensions, but it seems like the honeymoon phase is over.”

We suppose in some ways, all marriages are alike -- it's just that if your royalty, you get to jet off to another continent when you're upset.

Obviously, if there's any truth to these reports, now would be the ideal time for Harry to begin dismantling his man cave -- and pretending to like his in-laws.
