Prince Harry and Meghan Markle had quite the 2018. Following their whirlwind romance, epic royal wedding, and the announcement of their impending child, the pair only had one thing left to do: cap off the year with a vacation. According to Brides, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex went on a babymoon for New Year’s Eve.
That getaway, The Express explained, came after the pair decided they needed a little bit of time to themselves. After all, they did just spend the entire holiday season with Harry’s extended family at Sandringham House. And they spent it amid rumors of a growing rift between Harry and Meghan and William and Kate. So, needless to say, a vacation is just what the doctor ordered.
The couple, The Express reported, did not reveal where their New Year’s Eve babymoon happened, but the paper did theorize that the pair may have gone to Monaco. That is where Harry and Meghan spent last New Year’s Eve. And this year was just as private.
Though Kensington Palace has yet to reveal Meghan’s exact due date, the world can expect the next royal baby to arrive sometime this spring. Meghan has been dropping plenty of hints as of late. On Christmas, when asked about becoming a mother, she reportedly said: “We’re nearly there.” And while making an appearance at a nursing home in December, she told one resident: “I’m looking very pregnant today!”
As for what the new baby will be named, that’s still up in the air as well—though bookies have their bets placed on Alexander for a boy and Alice for a girl. Maybe this babymoon will inspire them to go for something different. The name Monaco does have a nice ring to it.
