The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, are expecting their second child together, the couple announced Sunday.
A spokesperson for the couple, who stepped down from their royal duties last year, told the Associated Press: “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.”
The two live in California now and in the fall founded Archewell, Inc., a nonprofit venture focused on philanthropic efforts and creative media ventures. The effort is named after Archie, their first child, who was born in 2019.
Markle revealed in November of last year that she had suffered a miscarriage in July, writing about the experience in a New York times op-ed.
On Thursday the couple won a lawsuit against the British tabloid The Mail, with a judge finding that the publication had invaded Markle’s privacy by publishing portions of a letter written by Markle to her estranged father.
“After two long years of pursuing litigation, I am grateful to the courts for holding Associated Newspapers and The Mail on Sunday to account for their illegal and dehumanizing practices,” she said in a statement following the ruling.
