It was just last month that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced they were expecting their second child, doing so on the anniversary of Princess Diana’s disclosure that she was pregnant with her own second child — Harry.
On Sunday, the couple revealed they the child, due this summer, is a girl.
Their first child, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, was born in May 2019. Late last year, Ms. Markle wrote in an Op-Ed for The New York Times that she had suffered a miscarriage.
The couple first met at Soho House in London in 2016 after a friend set them up on a blind date. They married in 2018 and remained in London until late 2019.
In the first months of their relationship, a network of friends worked to help them keep it private, but eventually the global press found out they were together. Since then, their relationship has been complicated.
Throughout the course of their relationship, the couple has had to endure scrutiny from the news media, particularly in Britain, where they sued the tabloids that revealed letters shared between Ms. Markle and her father ahead of her wedding to Prince Harry.
