Meghan Markle pregnant: Harry and wife will announce baby news soon

2120

MEGHAN MARKLE and Prince Harry, 39 and 35, are already parents. The former-actress is mum to Archie Harrison, one. Is Meghan pregnant again?

Meghan and Harry are odds on to announce they are pregnant with a second child by the end of this year.

Coral’s Harry Aitkenhead said: “”It seems certain that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will add to their family and we make it odds on they announce before the end of the year that they are expecting.”

Meghan is odds on to reveal she is pregnant at 4-5.

Are the couple planning to have another child? Harry has spoken out on the number of the children the couple are looking to have in a previous interview.

Harry told British Vogue that the couple would limited the number of children they have due to environmental concerns.

He said the couple would have “two, maximum!”

He added: “I’ve always thought: this place is borrowed.

“And, surely, being as intelligent as we all are, or as evolved as we all are supposed to be, we should be able to leave something better behind for the next generation.”

This plan would leave room for Meghan to announce a younger sibling for Archie.

Meghan and Harry announced the news of their first child on October 15 2018. It was the first day of their royal tour of Australia, one of the few tours they undertook during their short time as working royals.

The official announcement came via Kensington Palace in a statement that read: “Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Sussex is expecting a baby in the Spring of 2019.”

This was shortly after Princess Eugenie’s wedding day, at which Meghan’s open coat look left many certain an announcement was on the way.

Archie was born on May 6 2019, meaning Meghan’s announcement was made two months into her pregnancy, unusually early as many wait until the three month mark to make an announcement.

Archie is currently the seventh in line to the British throne, something that would change if the Cambridges have a fourth child.

He is not a prince, or an HRH, although his parents might have chosen to use the title Earl of Dumbarton for him. However, Harry and Meghan simply chose Master Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

It is thought this was inspired by their wish for him to live as a private citizen.

Many royal fans hope Kate Middleton is pregnant or she and Prince William will have another child.

Their children, George, seven, Charlotte, five, and Prince Louis, two, are third, fourth and fifth in line to the British throne, based on their ages.

Royal author Phil Dampier suggested a pregnancy hint. He said: “The pictures of William and Kate with their kids and Sir David Attenborough are delightful, and emphasise once again what a happy family they are.

“I’m sure Kate would love another baby and she’s even holding her stomach, indicating perhaps she’s pregnant again already!”

Judi James told Express.co.uk: “It’s probably wishful thinking on the part of royal fans, who would like nothing better than a new Cambridge baby to lift the country’s spirits in this time of crisis, but after previously listing the type of body language cues that might suggests Kate is pregnant again, I do have to say there are at least four of them on display here.”

The royal line of succession – who outranks who?

The line of succession to the British throne dictates the order in which each member of the Royal Family would ascend to the throne.

It is also seen as a ranking of importance with the head of the line, the Queen, taking the place of ruler.

Older children come before younger children. Traditionally boys came before girls, but this law was changed on 26 March 2015 before the birth of Prince William’s first child.

Incredibly, Catholics are still excluded from the line of succession, as are children born outside of wedlock.

The royals, who usually stick to a strict protocol when appearing in public, often arrive at events in ascending order of importance, with the most important royal arriving last.

Prince Charles, 71, is currently second-in-line to the British throne, followed by Prince William, 38, his oldest son.

Then comes Prince William’s children, George, seven, Charlotte, five, and Louis, two, and they are followed by Prince Harry, 35. Prince Harry is succeeded by his son Archie Harrison, born in May 2019.
