Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are expecting a baby, a spokesperson for the couple has confirmed.

The spokesperson for The Duke and Duchess of Sussex 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 couple, who currently live in the US, have shared a beautiful black and white picture of themselves, sat under a tree, with Prince Harry resting his hand on Meghan’s head as she lay in his lap cradling her bump. It was taken remotely on an iPad by photographer Misan Harriman.

The Queen, Prince Philip, Prince Charles and the remainder of the Royal Family are said to be “delighted” and “wish them well,” according to a spokesperson for Buckingham Palace.

The news of Meghan’s second pregnancy comes after the duchess suffered a miscarriage last July.

Markle revealed in a deeply personal article for the New York Times that she had miscarried, writing: “I knew, as I clutched my firstborn child, that I was losing my second.”

Hours later, I lay in a hospital bed, holding my husband’s hand. I felt the clamminess of his palm and kissed his knuckles, wet from both our tears.

“Staring at the cold white walls, my eyes glazed over. I tried to imagine how we’d heal.”

She was widely praised for sending a powerful message to others who have lived through the same trauma.
