LONDON (Reuters) – Britain’s Queen Elizabeth and the entire royal family are delighted at news that Prince Harry and his wife Meghan are expecting their second child, a Buckingham Palace spokesman said on Sunday.

The spokesman said the Queen and her husband Prince Philip, Harry’s father Prince Charles and the whole family were “delighted” and wished the couple well.

Prince Harry and his wife Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, are expecting their second child, a spokesperson for the couple said on Sunday.

Harry, 36, and Meghan, 39, stepped back from royal duties in January 2020 and moved with their first son Archie to Southern California to live a more independent life and escape the British media.

“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 said.

Archie was born in May 2019.

The Valentine’s Day announcement was accompanied by a black and white photograph of a visibly pregnant Meghan lying on grass with one hand on her stomach and her head resting on the smiling prince’s leg. The photo was taken by longtime friend and photographer Misan Harriman.
