Harry and Meghan’s tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey has been full of heartbreaking details but in happier news, the couple revealed to the talk show queen that they are expecting a baby girl!
Proud dad-to-be Harry confirmed the news by simply stating: “It’s a girl!””Grateful, having any child, any one or a two would have been amazing, but to have a boy and then a girl — now we’ve got our family and we’ve got four of us,” he adds. Harry and Meghan added that their daughter will be born in summertime.
Oprah responded by sweetly noting: “To have a boy and then a girl — what more can you ask for?” However this will be the Duke and Duchess’ final child.”Two is it,” Harry says.
Harry and Meghan’s baby news was announced to the world via their representatives back in February after the couple released a black and white photo of the pair in their back yard, smiling as Meghan lies in Harry’s lap with her baby bump visible beneath a flowing Carolina Herrera dress. “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,” a spokesperson told PEOPLE, adding that the couple are “overjoyed” to be parents again. The photo was taken remotely via an iPad by a close friend and photographer, Misan Harriman.
Harry has made it no secret that he would love to have a baby girl. During his and Meghan’s royal tour of Australia shortly after their first pregnancy was announced, the red-headed royal attended the road cycling event at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Sydney for the Invictus Games.When a spectator in the crowd called out to the Duke of Sussex: “Congratulations, I hope it’s a girl!”, Harry sweetly replies: “So do I!”
In the new Oprah interview, Meghan explained that she felt a lack of support during her pregnancy with Archie, who was born in May 2019. “We had in tandem the conversations of how he won’t be given security,” Meghan revealed. She went on to say that there were also multiple conversations about how her child would not have a title, a topic that was not discussed with Meghan beforehand. She also added that Palace aides, raised “concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he’s born.” “That was relayed to me from Harry from conversations that family had with him.” Meghan added that her security concerns only deepened throughout her last few months of pregnancy.” They were saying they didn’t want him to be a prince, which would be different to protocol, and that he wasn’t going to receive security. This went on for the last few months of our pregnancy,” she explained.
