The moment that British royal enthusiasts have been waiting for since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle said “I Do” has finally come to pass: The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are expecting a baby! Kensington Palace announced the news of Meghan’s pregnancy the morning of October 15, complete with an approximate due date of spring 2019.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are far from what many consider a traditional royal couple.

But now that Meghan is pregnant with the newest addition to the royal family (who will be seventh in line, according to the rules of succession), there will be lots of traditions to uphold.

And the first is that in British terms, one does not "get pregnant." Rather, one "falls pregnant."

So when you hear that Meghan has "fallen pregnant," please don't be alarmed. It's perfectly good news.
