Kensington Palace has answered all our questions following Princess Eugenie’s wedding by announcing that the Duchess of Sussex is pregnant with her and Prince Harry’s first child. The news comes days after the couple was spotted at Prince Harry’s cousin’s nuptials, where Meghan Markle wore a wide-fitting Givenchy coat, leaving everyone wondering if she was pregnant.
Their news comes five months after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle became husband and wife, and it has been reported that the expected parents told the royal family during Princess Eugenie’s wedding last Friday. Meanwhile, the couple looked to be overjoyed as they touched down in Sydney just moments before the announcement was made.
This is their first major international tour as a married couple since their wedding in May, and spectators were quick to notice Meghan holding her stomach and covering her midriff with folders as she stepped off the plane.
It has been suggested that Meghan has had her 12-week scan and the baby will be born in April. The new arrival will possibly be born around St. George’s Day and will also be the Queen’s eighth great-grandchild.
The news from the Palace went as follows: “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. Their Royal Highnesses have appreciated all of the support they have received from people around the world since their wedding in May and are delighted to be able to share this happy news with the public.”
It is also believed that Meghan’s mother, Doris Ragland, will be moving to London from the U.S. to help look after the baby since Meghan does not want to hire a nanny. In fact, Doris was spotted taking a baby-care class in Pasadena, California, just last month, leading to speculations that she is an expecting grandmother.

The mansion is more than just a simple property, it can be considered a real landmark because of its style and what it can offer.

It’s so nicely designed that you will want to spend some time there even if you’re not intent on playing tennis. It’s a great perk and a great way of spending time with the people in your life. And it’s also not that far from the beach.
The View From the Deck
Staying on the deck could be one of the main activities we would recommend, even though the mansion has a lot of other things to offer. You can perfectly see the ocean from there, and the blue Florida sky gives you a wonderful feeling. It’s the perfect spot to meditate, read, or enjoy a nice cup of coffee in the morning. The sky view is also amazing at night, which makes it even better.

It’s really luxurious, and some of us may feel like we will never be able to experience something like that, but one can always dream, right? The furniture comes in a black color, and there are plenty of furniture elements that are more than impressive. It has some impressive chairs, and the night-stands are actually entirely made out of mirrors, which is absolutely amazing.

This house has more than two bedrooms, but only two of them can be truly considered as being possible master bedrooms. The second bedroom comes with a completely different design compared to the first one. A lot of wood is present in this room, and the lighting is completely different. The first option has a white ceiling, while this one has a black one. We can agree that the first option was intended to be the master bedroom.
The Luxury Bathroom
The bathroom shouts out luxury more than any other part of the house. It has a lot of glass in its design, and it can be seen as a spa more than a bathroom. It has plenty of mirrors, so anyone that’s in it can take a good look at themselves and spend quality time in a beautiful and intimate space.

The Kid Rooms
The mansion comes with some great kid rooms that were designed to look simple and youthful at the same time. It has huge windows that fill the room with light, creating an amazing atmosphere. The plush pillows were chosen to create the utmost comfort for children while providing a warm and comfortable feeling for them.
The overall look of this property makes us see very clearly that it was partly designed by one of the biggest divas we have ever seen. Celine Dion made sure to add her touch to every spot of this property. It has a little bit of glamour in all of its rooms, which can be noticed through the choice of certain furniture elements and the lighting of the whole domain.
If we’re talking about style, we can always take Celine Dion as a great reference. The same thing is true for this mansion. The things that make a difference do not depend on quality or quantity, but on good taste. You can own the biggest mansion in the world, but if it was made in poor taste, it won’t be appreciated by anyone. On the contrary, this property definitely has more style than we could ever expect from a house.
We’ve already talked about the pools, but we’re going to go over a few more facts. There’s a poolside bar included in one of them, and the whole pool system uses about 500,000 gallons of water. This is impressive but not that surprising, since it’s well known that the property had a water park before Celine bought it.
The property was a water park once upon a time, and the diva chose to keep some of the water slides that were on the property when she bought it. It’s an amazing feature that can make you feel like you’re in paradise. It has enough water slides for a large number of children and adults to enjoy, and it really gives you a water park feeling.
Walking On Water
There’s a poolside pavilion that was added so you can spend quality time in the shade when that Florida sun is burning. It was actually made so you can keep your feet in the water at all times, which really makes you feel like you’re walking on water. This was an amazing idea that comes with an out of the ordinary experience that all of us would wish to have.
Outdoor Dining Space
If everything you’ve seen until now hasn’t been enough, this amazing water park mansion also includes an outdoor dining space. This space is more than ideal for summer evenings and parties. You can sit by the pool while enjoying a meal or a glass of wine. This is one of those features that express luxury beyond our expectations.
This home is approximately 10,000 square feet, and it was built in a Bahamian style. It’s placed on one of the most expensive real estate areas in the United States. It has eight bedrooms and 415 feet of private beach. It includes a total of five pavilions that serve multiple purposes. Besides the tennis court, it also includes a basketball court, a golf course, and a croquet course. The multiple purposes of the pavilions include guest bedrooms and a tennis house.
The Property Today
Today, the property isn’t owned by Celine Dion. Not that long after her husband passed away, she decided to sell the property at an auction. The house was bought by an unknown buyer. It’s said that the current owner uses the property as a vacation home, which is actually pretty amazing. Most of us could only dream of living in a mansion like this one, but that isn’t a relevant thing to the owner who doesn’t permanently live there.
What Happened To the Mansion
The mansion was sold for 27 million dollars in 2017, even though the original price it was listed for was a huge 72 million dollars. The current owner of the mansion didn’t reveal their identity when the transaction happened. We don’t know what’s currently happening there. All we know is that the location is as wonderful as ever. Even though Celine Dion doesn’t own this property anymore, it’s most definitely going to remain to the public as a piece of history and her life.
Close to Paradise
This water park mansion is nothing but impressive, and it could most definitely be considered a piece of paradise on earth. Looking at where it’s situated, the private beach that it has, and all the amazing features of its water park, we’re absolutely convinced that this could be considered a landmark. Just by looking at pictures, you can feel the sensation of the sun on your skin and the whole atmosphere of this oasis.
The possibilities here are endless. Besides the fact that it could be a certified water park, this wonderful property offers a lot of wonderful activities that could bring a sense of wholeness to your lifestyle. It has a basketball court, a tennis court, a croquet court, and a golf course. It even comes with a fully equipped home theater that offers the same feeling as a real movie theater. Besides all these things, it also has a private beach.
This mansion has become an inspiration ever since Celine Dion and her husband added their touches to it. After spending more than two years designing and planning what this property was going to look like, the couple didn’t disappoint at all. The glamour and style that Celine has always possessed brings us a wonderful feeling every time we see her on stage are just as present in this estate.
The most impressive feature about this mansion was the fact that it wasn’t built to be like any other mansion out there. While properties like this are usually original and special in their own way, this water park mansion exceeds all expectations a person could have. It includes so many great features and wonderful things that it most definitely makes us envious of whoever has had the chance to take a live look at it.
A Look From Above
When you’re taking a glance from above, you can’t be anything other than impressed by the huge property. It has a lot of wonderful green areas, and it comes with a large number of pools and spots designed for different activities. If you look closely, you can see that the mansion was built from several individual buildings. They all add up to an amazing property that expresses luxury and style beyond measure.
Looking At the Property From the Beach
While looking at the property from the beach, you’ll only be able to see the back of the mansion. But that’s not a bad thing at all. Seeing the property in a wider view can be quite breathtaking. While the view is rather open, the way the mansion was built ensures that the people who live there have a huge amount of privacy. If you’re swimming in the ocean or simply passing by, you will not regret stopping and taking a look.
