‘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.’

This child will be eighth in the line of succession to the throne but, at this stage, is not entitled to be a prince or princess.

Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip will become great-grandparents again twice with the birth of this child and Zara and Mike Tindalls’ forthcoming arrival.

Harry and Meghan shared a black and white photograph, taken by Misan Harriman on an iPad.

Harry is sitting up with Meghan lying beside him under a large tree, with her head resting on his leg, with her hand resting on her clearly showing themselves sitting or lying under a large tree.

Meghan’s long-time friend added the caption, ‘ 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!’

Prince Harry married American actress Meghan Markle in St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle on 19 May 2018.

However, Harry and Meghan announced they were stepping down as senior members of the Royal Family and moved to Canada, then Los Angeles, before buying their home in Santa Barbara, California.

Meghan revealed in November 2020 she had suffered a miscarriage earlier that year in July.

Apparently, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were said to be following in his mother Diana’s footsteps when she announced on Valentine’s Day that she was pregnant with Harry in 1984.
