Daily US Times: Harry and Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, are expecting their second child, a spokesperson for the couple has said.

The couple are preparing to welcome a brother or sister for their son Archie Mountbatten-Windsor, who turned one last May.

A spokesperson said they were “overjoyed”.

A Buckingham Palace spokesman said the Queen, Duke of Edinburgh, Prince of Wales and the rest of the Royal Family “are delighted and wish them well”.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle shared a black and white picture of themselves under a tree, with Harry resting his hand on Meghan’s head as she cradles her bump.

Their child will be eighth in line to the throne.

The couple did not reveal the due date of the delivery, but Meghan’s bump appeared prominent in the photograph.

The news comes after Meghan said in November that she had suffered a miscarriage last July, writing in an article of feeling “an almost unbearable grief”.

A spokesperson for the couple 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,” the spokesperson added.

Misan Harriman, a friend of Harry and Meghan and the photographer who took the photo that accompanied their pregnancy announcement, tweeted: “Meg, I was there at your wedding to witness this love story begin, and my friend, I am honoured to capture it grow.
