Prince Harry & Meghan Markle Expecting Second Childby Brent Furdyk · ET Canada
It’s official: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are expecting their second child.
Carolyn Durand, who reports on the royals for Elle and Oprah.com, reported the happy news via Twitter.
“We can confirm that Archie is going to be a big brother,” a spokesperson for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex said in a statement.
“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are overjoyed to be expecting their second child,” the statement concluded, accompanied by a photo of Duchess Meghan lying on the grass, her head on her husband’s lap, cradling her baby bump.
The gorgeous black-and-white photo was taken remotely by the couple’s longtime friend and photographer, Misan Harriman.
The couple’s happy news comes after Duchess Meghan’s revelation that she suffered a miscarriage during the summer.
“Losing a child means carrying an almost unbearable grief, experienced by many but talked about by few,” she wrote in a deeply personal essay published by The New York Times in November. <
The couple welcomed their first child, son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, in May 2019.
