Meghan Markle is pregnant, expecting second child with Prince Harry

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are expecting their second child.

“We can confirm that Archie is going to be a big brother,” a spokesperson for The Duke and Duchess of Sussex told Page Six on Sunday.  “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are overjoyed to be expecting their second child.”

The couple’s son, Archie, turns 2 years old in May.

In announcing the news, Markle, 39, and Harry, 36, shared an intimate black-and-white photo that shows Markle cradling her baby bump.

The news comes a few months after Markle talked of her “almost unbearable grief” after suffering a miscarriage in July.

The new arrival will be the first baby of British royal descent to be born in the US after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex quit their positions as senior royals earlier this year.

After leaving their roles, they set up home in a $14 million home in Montecito, Calif., where neighbors include Oprah Winfrey and Ellen DeGeneres.

Rumors of Markle’s pregnancy had been swirling since her legal team asked for her privacy case against Britain’s Mail on Sunday newspaper to be postponed for nine months on “confidential” grounds.

The former “Suits” actress then appeared to show off a bump in photos published on Page Six in late December as she stepped out all bundled up in a heavy parka and sweater.

Markle was praised for her brutally honest essay about pregnancy loss in the New York Times last month.

She wrote: “I knew, as I clutched my firstborn child, that I was losing my second,” describing how she watched “my husband’s heart break as he tried to hold the shattered pieces of mine.”

Harry has already said he only wants two children, after speaking of his concerns for the environment and the “terrifying” effects of global warming in the edition of British Vogue, guest edited by his wife.

As they pledged to be financially independent, the Sussexes have signed multimillion-dollar deals with Netflix and Spotify, following in the footsteps of the Obamas. Their holiday podcast is expected to air soon.

Markle is also turning to investing — and is an angel investor in woman-owned coffee brand Clevr, which Winfrey promoted to her 19 million Instagram followers.

  1. Who cares? They lived the high life at the expenses of poor tax payers in Britain.Then they turned their backs on them.They did not give back those monies allotted to them.Even though they moved to Holly-weird.She lived with her white father and passed for white.Then she became black after moving back with her mother.I wondered why she had to be raised by her father.Where was her mother?Could someone tell me. ANR:Are you becoming like the National Enquirer?

  2. Second surrogate baby. Who do they think they are fooling. When they got married, Harriett said they would adopt. They were afraid that if she carried a child it would favour her mother. I just hate Harriett for choosing an American.

  3. I echo, who cares! They live off the backs of slave labor and the ravages of colonialism. Stripped Africa of its wealth and its culture. The crown needs to repatriate all the billions in its coffers ro it’s rightful owners. Black people!

  4. Wow some very strong sentiments.
    May be a wise choice to add an international news tab, like regional, for re publishing articles like this
