Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are expecting their second child, the BBC has reported.
Citing a spokesperson for the couple, the BBC confirmed the news on Sunday.
The couple have a one-year-old son, Archie Mountbatten-Windsor, who was born in May 2019.
“We can confirm that Archie is going to be a big brother,” the spokesperson told the BBC. “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are overjoyed to be expecting their second child.”
