Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are nervous about a possible miscarriage after suffering one last year. A source revealed the details to People.


Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have some concerns about a possible miscarriage as Markle shared she had suffered one last year, in July.

Markle had shared in a candid and open New York Times essay in November that in July 2020, she had suffered a devastating miscarriage.


After suffering a miscarriage, it is no wonder the Duke and Duchess are nervous while awaiting the birth of their second child and Archie's first sibling.

A source close to the expecting parents revealed to People their feelings about expecting and that it took a while for them to feel relaxed:

"They were both nervous, and it took them a while before they could relax and fully enjoy this pregnancy."


The source shared that the Sussexes wanted Archie to have a sibling close in age. The adorable little Archie will turn 2 years old on May 6, 2021.

The couple is so excited about Archie having a younger sibling that he was the centerpiece of their announcement as the first line read that he was to be a big brother.

After his birth, she shared he was a dream, and she had the two best guys in the world.


The announcement came in the form of a gorgeous black and white photo taken by the couple's friend and photographer Misan Harriman via an IPad.

The photo showed a barefoot Harry sitting in a garden, with his beautiful and pregnant wife lying with her head in his lap. A source revealed that the couple is thrilled as:

"They are besotted parents, and they can't wait to share that even more with a second child. They are both so happy to have their little family."


It has been reported that Prince Harry is particularly excited about the arrival of a second child as he has loved being a father to Archie.

Of course, Markle is just as excited as Archie had been a lovely and sweet baby. After his birth, she shared he was a dream, and she had the two best guys in the world.

Although the baby will be a member of the Royal British family, they are likely to be American-born as the Sussexes are based in California.

Prince Harry and Markle stepped down from their roles as royal senior family members in January 2020. They then relocated to Montecito, California, and are thriving.
