Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Are Expecting Baby No. 2
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have another baby on the way!
The couple, who are also parents to son Archie, turning 2 in May, announced the news over the weekend on Valentine’s Day, with a stunning black and white image taken remotely by their friend and photographer Misan Harriman, People reports. In the image, Meghan, smiling and holding her bump, is resting in Harry’s lap and looking up at him.
“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,” a spokesperson for the couple told the outlet. Buckingham Palace also released a statement saying, "Her Majesty, the Duke of Edinburgh, Prince of Wales and the entire family are ‘delighted’ and wish them well.”
The news comes a couple months after Meghan revealed she had suffered a miscarriage in July 2020. “I knew, as I clutched my firstborn child, that I was losing my second….Losing a child means carrying an almost unbearable grief, experienced by many but talked about by few,” she wrote at the time in a powerful and honest essay for The New York Times.
Following the pregnancy announcement, CBS also revealed the couple will be doing a tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey, titled Oprah With Meghan and Harry: A CBS Primetime Special. The interview is set to air on March 7 at 8 pm ET and will be the stage for an “intimate conversation.“
“Winfrey will speak with Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex, in a wide-ranging interview, covering everything from stepping into life as a Royal, marriage, motherhood, philanthropic work to how she is handling life under intense public pressure,” CBS said. “Later, the two are joined by Prince Harry as they speak about their move to the United States and their future hopes and dreams for their expanding family.”
