Shortly after they touched down in Sydney last Monday, Meghan and Prince Harry announced that they are expecting a baby in spring 2019.
Speculation regarding the couple’s first child has been rampant since Ragland was seen taking baby care classes in Pasadena last month.
And it has also been reported that Ragland is considering moving to London because Meghan may not want to hire a nanny.
Ragland, the only member of Meghan’s family to attend the royal wedding, is ‘extremely close’ to her daughter and may even move in with the couple.

And the Duchess of Sussex looked to be in high spirits as she and Prince Harry arrived in Fiji on the next leg of their marathon tour on Tuesday.
The royal couple traveled by charter flight from Australia to the capital Suva, embarking in casual shirts and jeans before stepping off the Qantas plane in more formal attire.
Meghan wore a dress by Australian label Zimmerman, a Stephen Jones hat, earrings which were a gift from the Queen and a bracelet that was given to her by Prince Charles.

The Duchess of Sussex’s tour wardrobe certainly has been versatile so far, going from skinny jeans, a shirt and flats to a smart dress, hat and heels effortlessly!
Meghan has also well and truly mastered the art of diplomatic dressing, choosing Australian designers like Martin Grant and Karen Gee, as well as New Zealand-born Emilia Wickstead.
This dress is by another Aussie favourite, Zimmermann, and it appears to be a customised version of the style we’ve pictured on the right. When teamed with a Kayu clutch bag, a Stephen Jones hat, some Tabitha Simmons shoes and jewellery gifted to her by the Queen and Prince Charles, she looked very chic indeed for her arrival in Fiji.
We love the flattering length and classic cut of this pearl white dress. Unfortunately it’s not available to buy, but with Meghan in mind, we’ve rounded up some great alternatives to help you get the look, ranging from Asos and Zara right up to Roksanda and Royal Family favourite, Suzannah.

As the couple’s convoy left the airport, hundreds of well-wishers lined the road out of the airport, waving flags and cheering them on.
The Duke and Duchess are staying two nights at the Grand Pacific Hotel in Fiji, where they will follow in the Queen’s footsteps and acknowledge members of the public from the balcony of their hotel.
On Tuesday night they will attend a reception and State Dinner hosted by the President of Fiji, at which Prince Harry will speak.
