It’s been three weeks since Meghan Markle announced that she and Prince Harry are expecting their second child together. And now, we finally know the gender of baby number two.
Tonight, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex sat down with Oprah Winfrey for a tell-all conversation, titled Oprah with Meghan and Harry: A CBS Primetime Special. During the interview, Markle revealed that she’s expecting a girl.
“To have a boy and then a girl, what more could you ask for?” Prince Harry said. When asked about the possibility of more children, Markle confirmed, “Two is it.”
In addition to their unborn baby girl, Markle and Prince Harry are also parents to a 1-year-old son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.
Meghan Markle Was Financially Comfortable Long Before She Met Harry
Who knew Suits royalties could sustain actual royalty?The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have taken this responsibility seriously: Last September, they reportedly repaid the $3 million in public funding that had been used to renovate Frogmore Cottage, their residence on the royal Windsor estate. They've also begun to establish their own partnerships with various private companies to help fund their continued philanthropic work, in addition to relying on the sizable inheritance left to Harry by his late mother, Princess Diana.
The news comes less than one month after Markle and Prince Harry confirmed that they’re expecting their second child. The royal couple announced the big news on Valentine's Day through a statement obtained by People magazine.
A spokesperson told the outlet, “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 date of the baby announcement paid tribute to Prince Harry’s late mom, Princess Diana. When the Princess of Wales was pregnant with Harry in 1984, the Palace shared the news on February 13. By Valentine’s Day, the world was buzzing with the exciting news of another royal baby.
Thank you, Oprah, for making this interview double as a gender reveal.
