How to Make a Royal Announcement About Your Pregnancy

As Prince Harry and the Duchess of Sussex have officially announced they are expecting in the Spring, we thought we’d share with you some of the most unique ways to announce your pregnancy to the world.

You may not get press coverage like the Royal couple, but you can still make it just as special and memorable.


Make It Insta-Special

If you want to join Meghan and Harry in announcing your pregnancy to the world, then there is no better place than Instagram.

Plan a pregnancy photoshoot with your partner, and share the pictures online for all your friends and family to see.

To get some ideas of how you want the images to look, do a little research on Pinterest beforehand. This way you can decide whether you want the images to be funny, cute or downright remarkable.

After all, do you want a Beyonce style shoot where it’s just you looking fierce with your bump or a sentimental announcement like Tom and Giovanna Fletcher?

Putting your unique photos on Instagram not only lets you put your message out there in your own words but with a photoshoot, you also get to create beautiful photographs of this special moment which you can treasure forever.


Let the Sibling Say It

Getting your children to reveal your pregnancy is an adorable way to announce that you’re expanding your family. Plus its great fun for siblings who can start to get excited about their new baby brother or sister.

Whether it’s a photo or a video that you share, there are some cute ways to make everyone well-up with emotion when they see the announcement.

Some the cute messages and signs we’ve seen from siblings include;

  • “Only child, expiring (date)”
  • An image of a sibling reading a book - “How to be a Big Brother/Sister”
  • “I’m so cute, mummy and daddy decided to make another one.”
  • “Every superhero needs a sidekick. Arriving (date)”
  • “If you think I’m trouble, wait until you meet my partner in crime. Arriving (date)”
  • “I’m being promoted to big brother/sister.”

Post A Picture

If you prefer to keep thing a little more private, posting a card with a picture is a wonderful surprise for close friends and family.

Not many of us send post now, so it’s a thrill to find such wonderful news and be presented with something memorable.

There are many unique ways you can send something to unveil your announce. For example, you could;

  • Send a photo from a pregnancy photoshoot.
  • Send a picture of your first scan.
  • Send a funny card that reveals your news.
  • Send a gift that hints at your news so they have to phone you to really find out.

No matter your style, create something that you’ll remember forever and be able to look back on with a smile. Pregnancy may not always feel like a gift, but you’ll certainly miss those months when you’re baby begins to grow-up.
