When did Meghan and Harry announce their pregnancy?
Their representative said in February, “We can confirm that Archie will be a big brother.
“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are overjoyed to have their second child.”
It came after Meghan unfortunately miscarried in the summer of 2020.
During her interview with Oprah Winfrey in March 2021, the Duke and Duchess announced that they have a daughter.
Harry announced at the time, “It’s a girl! Simply grateful. Having every child, one or two, would have been great.
“But to have a boy and then a girl, I mean, what more do you want? Now we have our family, the four of us and our two dogs. “
Meanwhile, following their announcements, bookmakers predicted what the couple would call their daughter.
Diana – after Harry’s late mother Princess Diana – and Philippa – a tribute to Harry’s late grandfather Prince Philip – were the top favorites.
Jessica O’Reilly told about Ladbrokes The sun in May: “Royal fans are increasingly hoping Harry and Meghan will name their daughter Philippa and we have been forced to reduce the odds accordingly as that is the only name the players are currently endorsing.
“It would certainly not be a big surprise if Diana were used, although it is more likely to be a middle name.”
