Natalie was 15 weeks’ pregnant when she died.
The PSNI arrested a man as part of the probe on Tuesday.
He was previously questioned by officers on December 19.
The man, 32, has since been charged with murder and will appear before Lisburn Magistrates Court this morning.
A PSNI spokesperson said: “Detectives from Major Investigation Team have today, Thursday February 2nd, charged a 32-year-old man with the murder of Natalie McNally in Lurgan on 18th December 2022.
“He was arrested on 31st January in the Lisburn area after previously being arrested on December 19th 2022.
“He is due to appear at Lisburn Magistrates Court today, 2nd February.
“As is normal procedure, all charges will be reviewed by the Public Prosecution Service.”
Natalie was laid to rest after a humanist ceremony on St Stephen’s Day, December 26.
Hundreds of mourners turned out to support her devastated loved ones, who held her funeral at the family home in Craigavon.
The private humanist service concluded with the song Human, by Natalie’s favourite band The Killers.
Her coffin was then carried from the home, as her family filed behind and led the cortege to St Colman’s Cemetery in Lurgan for burial.
Ms McNally’s family had asked that any donations be made to Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation as she had lived with Type 1 diabetes from a young age.
Natalie’s devastated family said she was “taken so suddenly” and will be “always loved and remembered by her heartbroken family, friends and work colleagues”.
Her brother Niall previously said: “You couldn’t have said a bad word about our Natalie, she loved everybody.
“Natalie was a diabetic for most of her life and four years ago I was diagnosed as a diabetic and she was the first person up to the hospital that day.
“She talked me through everything and any time I had a question for her she would have answered it.
“In general, she was a lovely person who loved her family and friends, she was very into her activism and loved her pets.
“She would do anything for anyone, that’s the type of person she was, a brilliant, amazing woman and I love her.”
