Meghan and Prince Harry will announce another baby in 2020 following the first birthday of their son Archie, according to betting experts.
Betfair has the couple down at 4/7 to announce another pregnancy and give Archie a sibling.
The family are celebrating Archie’s first birthday today in LA and have received birthday messages from the rest of the royal family.
What did the betting experts say?
Betfair spokesperson Darren Hughes said:
“Prince Harry and his wife Meghan will be celebrating today as their first-born son Archie has his first birthday, but punters are convinced that 2020 may bring further joy for the pair, and they are odds-on at 4/7 to announce another pregnancy in 2020.”
Despite Meghan and Harry quitting life as senior royals and moving to Canada before relocating to LA, Betfair reckon little Archie may find himself back in the UK when he starts school.
“Where the couple will set down roots remains a point of speculation as well.
“But punters seem to think that Archie will join his cousins George, Charlotte and Louis by attending his first year of school in the UK with odds of 11/8, while it’s 2/1 for him to do so in the US,” Darren added.
He continued: “When it’s comes to Archie’s long-term future and what he may pursue as a career, it’s 12/1 that he will follow in his mother’s footsteps to become an actor.
“Much shorter odds of 3/1 for him to follow in her fictional ‘Suits’ footsteps as a lawyer.

“The option to follow his father into the military is at 4/1, although at the age of just one, he probably isn’t thinking too much about his future career.”
