Prince Charles’ first-born son Prince William is already a dad to three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and baby Prince Louis. Prince Harry's announcement date is symbolic to him and their late mother, Princess Diana.
A royal reporter Omid Scobie, reportedly noted on Twitter, “It was exactly 37 years ago that Princess Diana shared with the world that she was pregnant with Prince Harry.” The reporter posted a snapshot of the newspaper taken years ago showing the late royal member alongside the post.
The front-page newspaper dates from February 14, 1984. Their pregnancy announcement honors Prince Harry’s late mother, Princess Diana.
The couple has been residing at their new residence in Montecito, California, throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. The pair are also raising their first child at their home, who will soon become a big brother.
The 36-year-old Duke's second child will be eighth in line to the royal throne. When announcing that they are pregnant, they did not reveal any details regarding the baby's sex nor when Markle is due to give birth.
The picture shows that Markle’s growing baby bump looks very prominent. News of the couple’s pregnancy comes after the Duchess revealed in November that she suffered a miscarriage in July.
