"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 palace announced in a statement. "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 couple, who tied the knot this past May, had made it very clear they were ready for kids even before getting married, but the royal baby news still came as a happy surprise to many fans. "I really shouldn’t be so excited about a couple I don’t know having a baby but Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are having a baby and I couldn’t be happier," one royal spectator tweeted before another added, "That baby is going to be so beautiful. I'm so happy for them, wish them the best." 

And what would a royal baby announcement be without some memes? Keep scrolling for all the memes that perfectly captured Prince Harry and Meghan's big news:  

1. What breakup?

Sure, we were devastated to find out that Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson broke up, but that was before Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced another heir to the royal throne was on the way. Alexa, play "No More Tears Left to Cry."

3. BRB, brainstorming baby names.

Odds are already out for what Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are most likely to name their baby. If it's a girl, Diana and Alice are the top picks, and if it's a boy, Arthur is the early favorite. We have a feeling Harry and Meghan won't go down the traditional route.

Although technically, Queen Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz, who was descended from Margarita de Castro y Sousa — the black branch of the Portuguese royal family — was the first interracial royal.
