Prince Harry and Meghan Markle revealed exciting news for their family to the public recently via a spokesperson speaking on their behalf and a new family portrait. It was revealed in February that the couple is expecting their second child, making their son Archie a big sibling to be. Their new family portrait showcased Meghan’s baby bump, and their spokesperson was quite to the point in saying that the two are indeed expecting their second kid together. This reveal caused a great deal of excitement in many that follow the two’s lives as well as positive acceptance from more of the royal family too.
After the initial reveal to the public, Buckingham Palace released a statement that the entire family is ‘delighted’ by the news and wishes the couple well. Other sources have confirmed that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle did tell their own families about the pregnancy before their official reveal to the public, which is to be expected but many onlookers are pleased to see the positive public reaction by their royal families.
In the new family portrait photo, taken by Misan Harriman, Meghan is wearing a custom-made dress that was created and designed for her when she was pregnant with the couple’s first child, Archie, who is now almost 2 years old.
Another interesting revelation made by those looking into the history of the family is how much this reveal resembles Princess Diana’s second pregnancy reveal in factors involved as well as dates. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle decided to reveal their second pregnancy on the same day that Diana’s second pregnancy was revealed which was Valentine’s Day. In Princess Diana’s case, it was 1984 when her pregnancy was given the news to the public. This of course is expected due to the sentiment that the couple has shown towards the late Princess Diana, Harry’s mother, in their actions and speech over time especially since it was, in fact, Prince Harry that Diana was carrying when she revealed her pregnancy on this same day so many years ago.
Nobody is entirely sure what will be to follow from the royal family or Prince Harry and Meghan Markle throughout this second pregnancy and with the ongoing unsure grounds between the couple and their families, but it seems many of their fans and fans of the royal family have taken the news quite well. Plenty of people are excited for the couple to have their second child and joyful about their reveal especially since it paid homage to Diana’s pregnancy with Prince Harry as well in some ways.
Overall, there’s still plenty to know and see from this couple in the future as there always seems to be. But it has been made official that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are expecting their second child in the near future which will make their son Archie a big sibling and expand the family to four. The news was a surprise but was handled excellently by the couple and their trusted family and friends that helped make the reveal more exciting and easier to deliver.
