The Best Twitter Reactions to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Pregnancy Announcement

2018 has been a big year for the British royal family. From Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding to Prince Louis’ birth to Princess Eugenie tying the knot, you wouldn’t think the family could possibly have any more big news stuffed into one year.

Just a few days after Eugenie walked down the aisle, however, we were hit with yet another huge announcement. Harry and Markle are expecting their first child! We weren’t exactly surprised, considering fans and experts alike were picking up on some pregnancy clues.

On Oct. 15, 2018, palace officials tweeted, “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,” the statement continued.

As expected, Twitter went crazy the second Kensington Palace made the announcement. From the inevitable excitement to interesting theories, here are the best Twitter reactions to Harry and Markle’s pregnancy announcement.

Preparing for a seriously cute baby

We already know Harry and Markle are bound to make a seriously cute baby. However, one fan reminded us just how adorable the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were as kids. In sharing photos from the royals’ childhoods, the Twitter user warned us: “now that meghan markle is pregnant we all need to emotionally prepare ourselves for the Cutest Child In All Of Human History.”

Wondering how Princess Eugenie is taking the news

After Eugenie’s engagement and wedding were pushed back to make way for Harry and Markle to tie the knot, there’s no denying the Duke of Duchess of Sussex stole her thunder yet again. As previously mentioned, Harry and Markle made the public of announcement of their pregnancy just days after Eugenie’s wedding. What’s more, they reportedly spilled the beans to their own family on Eugenie’s big day.

One user wrote, “Okay but how pissed is Eugenie that Harry and Meghan broke the baby news to family at her wedding.”

Another pointed out, “I sort of love how the Royal Family has smacked Eugenie down this morning like ‘you had your fun over the weekend, but here’s Harry and Meghan’s baby as a reminder of your irrelevance!’”

The Prince George meme

While we’re sure Prince George is actually excited for another royal baby to join the family, one fan couldn’t help but tweet out the perfect meme. Along with the photo above of a serious-looking George, the Twitter user added a hilarious caption: “I’m the only #RoyalBaby.”

Conspiracy theories

Of course, what would a royal baby announcement be without at least one conspiracy theory? A fan shared, “Told my mum that meghan was pregnant, proceeded to share her theories that 1. The queen requested them to have a child immediately to continue the bloodline and 2. Meghan most likely had fertility test before they were married.”

Sharing their excitement

Sometimes, only a GIF can properly convey just how a person is feeling. Many fans had their GIFs ready to go while tweeting about Markle’s pregnancy. We’d have to say we agree with the excitement the fan above is feeling.

Another Twitter user gave a look into what went down when they heard the news: “HARRY AND MEGHAN MY HEART WENT WOOOOOOSH.” Once again, we definitely agree.
