Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are anxiously awaiting the arrival of their daughter this summer, and they're already making plans for their growing family.

• Reports claim that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are arranging an at-home birth for their second child, according to The New York Post. 

• The couple, who stepped away from their royal duties last year, currently live in a nearly $15 million, 18,000-square-foot estate in Montecito, California. 

• In other royal news, Kate Middleton and Princess Charlotte share this cute mannerism. 

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are doing things their way. 

Their second child is due to arrive this summer, but a specific due date for their baby girl has yet to be revealed. Although Meghan gave birth to her son Archie in 2019 at London's private Portland Hospital—after the plans to do so at Frogmore Cottage didn't come to fruition—the couple is keen on welcoming their second child right at home with the help of midwives.

During their sit-down interview with Oprah, where they shocked the world with many a revelation, they also announced that Archie would soon be a big brother to a little lady. Needless to say, the soon-to-be parents of two were thrilled. 

"To have a boy and then a girl, you know, what more can you ask for," Harry said during the interview. "But now, you know, now we — we've got our family. We've got, you know, the four of us and our two dogs, and it's great."

Once the first royal grandchild is born outside of the U.K.—a record-breaker—Meghan plans to pass down this important heirloom to her baby girl, and it's quite the statement!
