Another royal baby is on the way.

又一位皇室宝宝即将出生。

Britain’s Prince Harry and his American wife Meghan Markle are expecting a child. Kensington Palace tweeted the announcement Monday morning.

英国的哈里王子和他的美国妻子梅根·马克尔(Meghan Markle)正在等着孩子出生。肯辛顿宫周一早上发布了这个消息。

It read: “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.”

消息称:“苏克赛斯公爵和公爵夫人非常高兴地宣布,苏克赛斯公爵夫人的预产期将在2019年春季。”

Markle had been wearing looser clothing for several weeks. Then, on Friday, she wore a large coat to a royal wedding. Media reports quickly spread that she was possibly trying to hide signs of a pregnancy.

马克尔好几个星期都一直穿着宽松的衣服。然后在上周五,她穿了一件大一号的大衣参加皇室婚礼。媒体报道迅速传播称她可能是在试图掩盖怀孕的迹象。

The couple has been married almost five months. Their wedding ceremony last May in Windsor, England was a hugely popular televised event.

这对夫妇结婚差不多五个月了。他们今年5月在英国温莎举行的婚礼是一场非常受欢迎的电视转播活动。

The Duke and Dutchess are currently in Australia at the start of a 16-day trip that will also include visits to Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand. The pregnancy news came out shortly after they landed in Sydney. It set off a series of congratulatory posts on social media sites.

公爵和公爵夫人目前在澳洲开始为期16天的访问,其中还会访问斐济、汤加和新西兰。他们在悉尼落地后不久就传出了怀孕的消息,这引发了社交媒体上的一片祝贺声。

Many people are also guessing the sex of the baby, making lists of possible names and discussing the possibilities for its future in public service.

很多人还在猜测婴儿的性别,列出可能会取的名字并讨论其未来可能担任的公共职务。

Some guesses are funny. American journalist Greg Pollowitz posted that the child will be an American citizen and might run for president someday.

有些猜测很有趣。美国记者格雷格·波洛维茨(Greg Pollowitz)发帖表示,这个孩子将会成为美国公民,有一天可能会竞选美国总统。

He wrote, “Congratulations to Princess Meghan and Harry, and to the #RoyalBaby who will one day rule the Great American Empire.”

他写道:“恭喜梅根王妃和哈里王子,以及这位有朝一日会统治大美帝国的皇室宝宝。”

Another Twitter user posted that the baby will help,’ Make America Great (Britain) Again.”

另一位推特用户发帖称,这位宝宝将帮助美国再次强大起来。
