The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are expecting their second child. Meghan Markle and Enrique from England announced the news of their pregnancy with a black and white photo that was taken with the iPad of their friend and photographer Misan Harriman . In the picture a smiling and barefoot prince looks at Meghan who is stroking her belly. The baby will be the younger brother of the couple's son, Archie Harrison, who will turn 2 on May 6 and the tenth great-grandson of Elizabeth II.
The happy news, which they shared not by chance on Valentine's Day, comes after Meghan, 39, revealed that she suffered a miscarriage last July. ”It was a morning in July that started like any other day: make breakfast, feed the dogs, take the vitamins, find that lost sock. I made myself a ponytail before taking my son out of his crib. After changing her diaper, I felt a strong cramp. I dropped to the ground with him in my arms, humming a lullaby to keep us both calm. The happy melody was in contrast to my feeling that something was not right. I knew, while hugging my first-born, that I was losing the second, ”Markle published in an article in The New York Times about her experience on November 25. A hitherto unknown event that she wanted to make public in this unusual way in a member of the British royal family, something that proves that her life and that of her husband, Prince Henry of England, are governed by rules far removed from those of the palace since they moved to the U.S.
Meghan Markle and Henry of England , 36, officially resigned from their role as members of the British royal family last year. Now they live settled in the town of Montecito, California, where they are developing a life outside the palace and dedicated to their new Archewell foundation. They have also signed a contract with Netflix and with a representation agency that manages their appearances at events or conferences.
The news of the pregnancy comes shortly after Markle has won the lawsuit that brought Associated Newspapers for intrusion into her privacy by publishing a letter that he sent to his father and within the battle he has with the British tabloids.
Prince Henry revealed that they wanted to be parents of two children. He did so shortly after the birth of the first. Enrique was present at the delivery of Archie who was born in London. "I am very happy to announce the birth of our son, who has been a boy and was born this morning, a very healthy child," said the prince in a brief appearance before the cameras. “The mother and child are doing incredibly well. It was the most incredible experience I could have ever imagined ”, explained with a big smile the little son of Diana and Carlos de Inglaterra. "I am very grateful for all the messages of affection that I have received, they have been incredible," he added before the cameras. The little boy leads a very discreet life in the United States, where he has spent much of his life. Since he got there, there are hardly any photos of him. The last one dates from last Christmas. The dukes were expected to travel to London with their son in the spring. The news of Markle's pregnancy changes plans and everything indicates that the prince will do it alone.
