Harry and Meghan could announce second pregnancy next year, claims royal reporter

They're said to want a 'big family'

It's only two months since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle welcomed their first child – little Archie Harrison.

But there's already talk of the couple expanding their brood, with a royal reporter claiming that there could be another pregnancy announcement as early as next year.

And bookies seem to think that the news could come even earlier!

Royal correspondent Katie Nicholl told Entertainment Tonight: "I think it's probably a little premature to be speaking about a second baby.

"That said, sources close to the couple told me that they really would love to have a big family."

Harry's older brother William and his wife, Kate Middleton, have three children – George, five, Charlotte, four, and Louis, one.

Sources close to the couple told me that they really would love to have a big family.

And Nicholl reckons that Harry and Meghan could announce a brother or sister for Archie in 2020.
