This is VERY exciting.
Prince Harry Meghan Markle second baby – when can we expect the Baby Sussex number two?
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.
Prince Harry Meghan Markle second baby
Replying to a fan question about whether she thinks Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will have a second baby, E!’s chief royal correspondent Melanie Bromley said: ‘I do, and I think it will be really soon. I think she will be pregnant by this time next year.
‘They have Africa in the [autumn], which will keep them really busy, so after that.’
This is something that royal expert Katie Nicholl weighed in on in a recent 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?
