LOS ANGELES (AP) – The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are expecting their second child, their office confirmed on Sunday.
A spokesman for Prince Harry, 36, and Meghan, 39, said in a statement: “We can confirm that Archie will be a big brother. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are very happy to expect their second child. ”
In a black-and-white photo of herself, the couple was sitting near a tree with Harry’s hand placed under Meghan’s head as she lay on her lap with her hand resting on her bump.
The baby will be eighth in the queue for the British throne.
A spokesman for Buckingham Palace said: “Her Majesty, the Duke of Edinburgh, the Prince of Wales and the whole family are very happy and wish them good luck.”
The Duke told chimpanzee expert Jane Goodall in 2019 that he would only have two children for the sake of the planet.
Goodall said, “Not too many,” and Harry replied, “Two, maximum.”
Harry and American actress Meghan Markle got married at Windsor Castle in May 2018. Their son Archie was born a year later.
In early 2020, Meghan and Harry announced that they were leaving royal duties and moving to North America, citing what they said were the unbearable intrusions and racist attitudes of the British media. They recently bought a house in Santa Barbara, California.
In November, Meghan revealed that she had an abortion in July 2020 and gave a personal account of the traumatic experience in hopes of helping others.
A few days ago, the Duchess won a privacy claim against a newspaper over the publication of a personal letter to her foreign father.
