Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Expecting Second Child

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are expecting their second child, a spokesperson of the couple confirmed on Sunday.

“We can confirm that Archie is going to be a big brother,” said the spokesperson for Prince Harry, 36, and Meghan, 39. “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are overjoyed to be expecting their second child.”

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 welcomed their first child, Archie Harrison, in May 2019. Meghan revealed that she had suffered a miscarriage in July, writing about the loss in a New York Times opinion article in November. “Losing a child means carrying an almost unbearable grief, experienced by many but talked about by few,” she wrote.
