At the time, their spokesperson said: “We can confirm that Archie is going to be a big brother.

“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are overjoyed to be expecting their second child.”

Meanwhile, reports claimed the couple were trying to give Archie all the attention before his baby sister arrives.

A source told US Weekly: “Archie knows he’ll be a big brother soon and is very excited to help.”

The insider claimed Harry and Meghan “are a little worried now that they will have two kids around versus just one”.

Meanwhile, following Harry and Meghan’s Oprah chat and the Duke’s scathing comments about his family since, an expert warned the Queen might not see Archie and the baby again.
