Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have confirmed they are expecting their second baby, seven months after Meghan revealed she'd suffered a miscarriage. 

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are set to become parents for a second time.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex revealed the news on Valentine's Day via a spokesperson who confirmed their 22-month-old son, Archie is set to become a big brother.  

According to The Sun, a spokesperson said, "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," a spokesperson for the couple said."

The news comes just seven months after Meghan, 39, revealed she'd tragically suffered a miscarriage whilst changing Archie's nappy at her home in LA, and days after Princess Eugenie gave birth to her first child.

Writing about her experience, Meghan said, "I knew, as I clutched my firstborn child that I was losing my second.

"Hours later, I lay in a hospital bed, holding my husband’s hand. I felt the clamminess of his palm and kissed his knuckles, wet from both our tears. Staring at the cold white walls, my eyes glazed over. I tried to imagine how we’d heal.”
