Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are expecting their second child together
Britain`s Prince Harry and his wife Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, are expecting their second child. The news was announced by a spokesperson of the couple on Sunday.
Baby no 2 is on the way for Meghan and Harry! Britain`s Prince Harry and his wife Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, are expecting their second child. The news was announced by a spokesperson of the couple on Sunday.
Harry, 36, and Meghan, 39, stepped back from royal duties in January 2020 and moved with their first son Archie to Southern California to live a more independent life- away from the monarchy and prying British media.
"We can confirm that Archie is going to be a big brother. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are overjoyed to be expecting their second child," the spokesperson said.
The couple's son, Archie was born in May 2019.
The Valentine`s Day announcement was accompanied by a black and white photograph of a visibly pregnant Meghan lying on grass with one hand on her stomach and her head resting on Harry`s leg. The photo was taken by longtime friend and photographer Misan Harriman.
Queen Elizabeth and her husband Prince Philip, Harry`s father Prince Charles and the whole family were "delighted" and wished the couple well, a Buckingham Palace spokesman said.
Since ending their royal duties, Harry and Meghan have continued charity work and signed TV and other media deals, launching their debut podcast in December.
In 2020, Meghan revealed that she had a miscarriage in July as she wrote about the pain she went through in a column she wrote for a newspaper. Meghan's article was hailed by many as brave as it was for the first time that a royal was opening up about something this personal.
The couple married in a glittering ceremony in 2018 that captured the world`s attention but later gave up their official royal roles following disagreements with other family members and in the face of huge media attention.
Their relationship with the British press swiftly soured and the couple has launched legal cases against several newspapers.
