Sound the royal baby klaxon, another little Prince or Princess is coming (and no, it's not Prince Harry and Meghan Markle despite rumours that he's designing this engagement ring for her).

Prince Carl and Princess Sofia of Sweden welcomed their son Alexander Erik Hubertus Bertil just 11 months ago but the couple have announced that they are already pregnant with their second child.

In a statement released on the Swedish Royal Court's website, they said: 'We are happy to announce that we are expecting a child, a sibling to Prince Alexander.

'We are looking forward to welcoming a new little member to our family.'

The gorgeous couple are due to welcome their bundle of joy in September, and although this would mean that Princess Sofia is already halfway through her pregnancy she is adamant that she will continue with all of her scheduled engagements as planned throughout the year.

The Prince and Princess dated for five years before marrying in June 2015 and fell pregnant with baby Alexander very shortly afterwards.

It seems these two are wasting no time in growing their family, and we're so excited for them!

Congratulations - we can't wait to meet the little one later this year.
