Wait, are Prince Harry and Meghan Markle prepping for baby number two?

This is VERY exciting.

Prince Harry Meghan Markle second baby – when can we expect the Baby Sussex number two?

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle welcomed their first child together in May this year, naming their newborn son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

The couple introduced baby Archie to the world two days later, posing for photographs, but other than a few surprise appearances the three Sussexes have been spending their time at Frogmore Cottage bonding as a family.

It’s unsurprising therefore that speculation has been rising around every aspect of baby Sussex’s life, from who his Godparents are to the nursery colour palette of choice. But the most talked-about aspect is undoubtedly whether he will be joined by a royal sibling, with rumours emerging that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are already prepping for baby number two.

This is something that royal expert Katie Nicholl weighed in on in an interview with Entertainment Tonight – and it’s pretty exciting.

‘People are already speculating about baby number two for the Sussexes,’ she explained. ‘I think it’s probably a little premature to be speaking about a second baby. That said, sources close to the couple told me that they really would love to have a big family. They are, by all accounts, amazing parents. They are loving parenthood.’

She continued: ‘They absolutely want siblings for Archie, so possibly we will have a pregnancy announcement – a second pregnancy announcement for Meghan and Harry sometime next year – but, for the moment, the focus is obviously on Archie.’

The Duke of Sussex has spoken about how much he is enjoying fatherhood. During a speech at The Diana Award National Youth Mentoring Summit in London he said: ‘Perhaps it’s the newfound clarity I have as a father knowing that my son will always be watching what I do, mimicking my behaviour, one day maybe even following in my footsteps.

‘But it’s not just my role as a father that shows me that; it’s the people I see every day that don’t realise how inspirational they are to those watching.’

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s first two children are close in age; Prince George was born in July 2013 and Princess Charlotte arrived in May 2015.

Will Harry and Meghan follow suit?
