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 are overjoyed to be expecting their second child.”
The image was shot by their long-time friend and photographer, Misan Harriman. Hee took the picture remotely from London using an iPad. He tweeted, “Meg, I was there at your wedding to witness this love story begin, and my friend, I am honoured to capture it grow. Congratulations to The Duke and Duchess of Sussex on this joyous news!”
Mr Harriman added that he feels grateful for whatever small part he played. Meg reminded him that had he not introduced her to a mutual friend then she wouldn’t have met Harry. A Buckingham Palace spokesman said: “Her Majesty, Duke of Edinburgh, Prince of Wales, and the entire family are delighted and wish them well.” The couple told the royal family in advance of making the news public.
Meghan’s due date has not been revealed, but her bump appeared in the photograph. Before this great news, Meghan came up about her miscarriage in November last year in a deeply personal article writing, “I knew, as I clutched my firstborn child, that I was losing my second.” They quit their roles as senior working royals in March 2020 in a quest for personal and financial freedom. Now, they live in an £11 million house in Montecito in California.
The announcement came just five days after the royal family celebrated the arrival of Princess Eugenie’s first child, a baby boy. Baby Sussex will be the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh’s 10th or 11th great-grandchild depending on whether he or she arrives before or after Zara Tindall’s baby, which is also due in 2021. The baby is entitled to be a Lord or a Lady, but Harry and Meghan will again opt to style their second-born a plain Master, like Archie, or a Miss, with the surname Mountbatten-Windsor.
