Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, confirmed that they are expecting a second child together.

The Valentine's Day announcement was accompanied by a black and white photograph of a visibly pregnant Meghan lying on grass with one hand on her stomach and her head resting on the smiling prince's leg.

A spokesperson for the Duke and Duchess told the press: "We can confirm that Archie is going to be a big brother". Additional details about the forthcoming child haven't been shared, according to E Online.

A spokesperson for the couple said they were "overjoyed" at the news.

The shot was taken remotely by photographer and friend of the couple Misan Harriman. The royal family also reacted to the news of the Duke and Duchess' miscarriage after the news broke.

"This is Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank's first child, The Duke of York and Sarah, Duchess of York's first grandchild, and the ninth great-grandchild for the Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh".

Last week Meghan won a privacy claim against Associated Newspapers after its Mail on Sunday paper had printed extracts of a letter she wrote to her father in August 2018.

The strategist believes that Meghan and Prince Harry's Archewell Foundation could give her a necessary boost to enter the world of politics.

She wrote: "I dropped to the floor with him in my arms, humming a lullaby to keep us both calm, the cheerful tune a stark contrast to my sense that something was not right".

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle recently revealed that the duo is gonna be parents for the second time!

Markle said she was sharing her story to help break the silence around an all-too-common tragedy.
