This is the adorable reaction Meghan Markle's mom had to her pregnancy announcement

In the second royal wedding of the year - yes, we're really that lucky - Princess Eugenie married Jack Brooksbank at St. George's Chapel in Windsor last Friday. Just three days after tying the knot, however, the ninth in line to the throne has been usurped following the news that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are expecting their first child.

In a statement released this morning, Kensington Palace revealed that the new royal baby is due in spring 2019. "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 announcement read.

"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."

Meghan has always shared a close bond with her mother, Doria Ragland, so of course she had the most adorable reaction to her daughter's pregnancy announcement.

Royal commentator for HELLO!, Emily Nash, took to Twitter to reveal that a spokesperson for Kensington Palace said that Doria "Is very happy about this lovely news and is looking forward to welcoming her first grandchild."

How sweet.

It's highly likely that Doria was one of the first people to hear of the Duchess of Sussex's happy news. Just last month, she visited Harry and Meghan at Kensington Palace. She supported her daughter as she celebrated the launch of a charity cookbook created by a group of women affected by the Grenfell fire - in what was Meghan's first solo engagement since becoming a member of the royal family.

It's understood that the Duchess of Sussex has just had her three month scan, meaning that she has just entered her second trimester.

While Kensington Palace never reveal exact due dates, it's expected that Meghan's falls somewhere in April - six months from now.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex had just touched down in Australia for their first overseas royal tour as a married couple when the news broke.

The tour coincides with the third Invictus Games - an international sports competition that Prince Harry founded back in 2014 for wounded veterans and members of the military.
The majority of their two-week engagement will be spent in Australia, where they're due to meet with locals, and focus on youth leadership projects. This is, of course, in accordance with the Duke's new duties - he was recently named Commonwealth Youth Ambassador.

The couple will also be visiting New Zealand, as well as Tonga and Fiji.

According to a royal source, Meghan and Prince Harry have not made any changes to their schedule following the Duchess' pregnancy announcement. The insider stated that Kensington Palace had considered all potential medial issues prior to the couple departing for their overseas tour.
