Prince Harry has revealed he and his wife Meghan are having a girl, as he revealed the gender during their bombshell Oprah Winfrey interview.

The Duke of Sussex announced, "It's a girl!" as he joined Meghan for the second part of their interview which aired on CBS last night (Sunday 7th March).

The couple, who already have a 22-month-old son Archie, announced on Valentine's Day that they were expecting their second child after experiencing a devastating miscarriage last July.

The Duke admitted it felt "amazing" when he learned the gender. He added, “Just to have a boy and a girl, what more can we ask for? We’ve got our family. We’ve got, you know, the four of us and our two dogs, and it’s great.”

The couple, who quit the UK last April to start a new life for themselves in America, have settled down in Los Angeles after confirming last month that they would not be returning as working members of the royal family.

And as many royal fans will be wondering if the couple is to have any more children in the future, they added that "two is it" for them and revealed their baby is due in the summer.

At the time of their second baby announcement, “We can confirm Archie is going to be a big brother,” a spokesperson for the pair confirmed on February 14 as the Sussexes shared an adorable black-and-white photo of Harry sitting on the grass in a harden while Meghan lay with her head in his lap and rested her hand on her baby bump. “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are overjoyed to be expecting their second child.”

During her interview with Oprah, Meghan also spoke of the lead-up to Archie's birth in May 2019, in which she revealed there were "several conversations" taking place within the palace walls that Harry later related to her.

She told Oprah, "In those months when I was pregnant, all around this same time, so we have in tandem the conversation of ‘He won’t be given security. He’s not going to be given a title,’ and also concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he’s born."

However Meghan refused to reveal which member of the royal family it was, having added, "It would be very damaging to them".

Meghan Markle also set the record straight on rumours she made Kate Middleton cry, in royal wedding lead up and Harry and Meghan shock with secret backyard wedding which took place THREE DAYS BEFORE the grand event.
