Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have announced they are officially expecting baby number two after baby Archie arrived in May 2019. “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 tells Fox News.
After the couple brought their first child into the world, it was confirmed that they would be stepping back from Royal duties. They currently live in California together.
Congrats to the happy couple on expecting baby number 2!

The two shared the exciting news on Valentine’s Day with a stunning black-and-white photo. Meghan is laying on the ground with a very visible baby bump, looking up at Harry who is smiling and looking back down at her. “Meg, I was there at your wedding to witness this love story being, and my friend, I am honoured to capture it grow. Congratulations to The Duke and Duchess of Sussex on this joyous news!” Their photographer Misan Harriman writes in a tweet.
This news comes after some tragic news where Meghan confirmed that she had suffered a miscarriage in July. She explained that she felt like something wasn’t right one morning after playing with her son. “After changing his diaper, I felt a sharp cramp. I dropped to the floor with him in my arms, humming a lullaby to keep us both calm, the cheerful tune a stark contrast to my sense that something was not right,” she writes at the time. “I knew, as I clutched my firstborn child, that I was losing my second.”

Meghan says she shared her story of miscarriage and loss to break the silence and stigma around the tragedy. The two will continue to remain out of the Royal eye as they continue to raise their first born, and await their second. Congratulations!
