London: The British royal palace is exhilarating in joy and the 94-year-old Queen Elizebeth II is beaming with joy as her grandson the Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle are expecting their second child. The wonderful news was confirmed by their spokesman on Valentine’s Day on Sunday. “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 spokesman said.
A Buckingham Palace spokesman said: “Her Majesty, Duke of Edinburgh, Prince of Wales and the entire family are delighted and wish them well.” Harry and Meghan shared a picture of them in black and white, when she is seen showing pregnancy bump. The picture was taken by Misan Harriman, a friend of the couple. He tweeted “Meg, I was there at your wedding to witness this love story begin, and my friend, I am honoured to capture it grow.”
Last year, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Harry and his wife had quit frontline royal duties and started living in California. Later in July, Meghan had suffered a miscarriage. The royal couple welcomed their first child, son Archie Mountbatten-Windsor, on May 6, 2019.
