Prince Harry and Meghan Markle expecting 2nd child

Check out what's clicking today in entertainment.

'The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are overjoyed to be expecting their second child'. On Feb. 14, the Duke and Duchess announced via representative that they're expecting their second child. The royal family also reacted to the news of the Duke and Duchess' miscarriage after the news broke.

The news was accompanied by a gorgeous black-and-white photo of the pair showing Meghan with her head in Harry's lap as she cradles her baby bump. Scroll down to see what they said in their announcement.

A spokesperson for Meghan and Harry said: "We can confirm that Archie is going to be a big brother".

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex's second child will be eighth in line to the throne.


The shot was taken remotely by photographer and friend of the couple Misan Harriman.

This news comes in the light of the Duchess' miscarriage last July, "Losing a child means carrying an nearly unbearable grief, experienced by many but talked about by few", she wrote in a searingly honest and heartbreaking New York Times essay on November 25.

The couple quit their roles as senior working royals in March 2020 in a quest for personal and financial freedom, and now live in an £11 million house in Montecito in California.

The couple's news echoes Princess Diana's announcement of her own second child - Prince Harry - which was printed in newspapers on Valentine's Day in 1984.

"After changing his diaper, I felt a sharp cramp", Meghan wrote in an essay for The New York Times, "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".
