The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have confirmed they are expecting a baby, who will be a younger brother or sister for their one-year-old son, Archie Mountbatten-Windsor.
A spokesperson for Prince Harry and Meghan 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 shared a black and white picture of themselves, sat under a tree with Harry resting his hand on Meghan’s head as she lay in his lap cradling her bump.
Guardian U.K reports that the new baby will be eighth in line to the throne. Harry retained his place in the line of succession despite him and Meghan stepping back as senior royals in January last year, and dropping the style of HRH. It means the Duke of York who was born second in line in 1960, will move down to ninth place.
Their announcement follows Meghan’s disclosure of the couple experienced after she suffered a miscarriage last summer.
