The representative of Buckingham Palace made on Monday, February 15, a statement on behalf of Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain about the pregnancy of Prince Harry’s wife Meghan Markle.
“Her Majesty, the Duke of Edinburgh, the Prince of Wales and the whole family are happy and wish them all the best,” – quote his words People.
On the eve of the representative of the Dukes of Sussex said that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are expecting their second child, reports NSN.
The gender of the child is still unknown.
The couple’s second child will become the eighth in the succession to the throne after Prince Charles of Wales, Duke of Cambridge William, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, Prince Louis, Duke of Sussex Harry and his son Archie.
In November, Meghan Markle spoke about the loss of her second child. She also urged not to hush up the topic of miscarriages, but to share her pain.
In January 2020, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced their desire to relinquish the duties of senior members of the royal family and gain financial independence from Buckingham Palace. After much discussion, the couple obtained this right, despite the disappointment with this choice on the part of Queen Elizabeth II.
Earlier, on February 9, it became known that the ninth great-grandson was born to Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain. Her Majesty’s granddaughter Princess Eugene of York announced the birth of her first child on 9 February.
