Yes, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have announced they are expecting again, revealing their exciting news on Valentine’s Day through a spokesperson:
“We can confirm that Archie is going to be a big brother. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are overjoyed to be expecting their second child.”
No further details about the pregnancy have been released at this stage.
But we did get a gorgeous black and white photo of the couple taken by their friend and photographer Misan Harriman, showing Meghan embracing her baby bump as she lies on Harry’s lap.
“Meg, I was there at your wedding to witness this love story begin, and my friend, I am honoured to capture it grow. Congratulations to The Duke and Duchess of Sussex on this joyous news!”

(Would you believe it was a remote shoot, taken on an iPad? Yep, coronavirus and all.)
The beautiful news comes just months after Meghan opened up about the heartbreak of suffering a miscarriage.
In a piece written for the New York Times, the Duchess recalled feeling a sharp pain in her stomach in July last year and described the grief she felt: “I knew, as I clutched my firstborn child, that I was losing my second.”
The Duchess explained that she hoped by speaking out, it might break the “perpetuating cycle of solitary mourning.”
