When Meghan Markle Is Pregnant With Baby No 2 These Women Will Be The First To Know

Meaghan Markle only gave birth a few months ago but the Duchess of Sussex is already facing rumors that she is pregnant with baby number two. The former Suits star welcomed her first child with Prince Harry, a healthy baby boy named Archie Harrison, back in May. The couple has yet to say anything about the pregnancy rumors, but when they do make an announcement there are a few women who will be the first to know.

Is Meghan Markle pregnant again?

The royal family has not offered any hints about another pregnancy, but there is one royal expert who believes the Sussexes are going to expand the family in the near future. In a recent interview, author Rachel Nicholl claimed that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle love being parents and cannot wait to give Archie a sibling. While royal watchers would love to hear about another pregnancy soon, Nicholl does not believe an announcement will be made until next year.

“I think it’s probably a little premature to be speaking about a second baby,” Nicholl shared. “That said, sources close to the couple told me that they really would love to have a big family.”

Nicholl added that Harry and Markle have adjusted nicely to parenting and definitely want Archie to have a brother or a sister. Although Nicholl does not believe an announcement will be made until 2020, there are several betting agencies in the UK that believe differently.

Ladbrokes, for example, has moved up the odds of a 2019 pregnancy announcement to three to one. The company believes that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle want to have children as quickly as possible and will not wait long before having their second baby together. Fans, of course, will have to wait to see what happens, but it looks like the royal family will be expanding in the near future.

Who will know about Meghan Markle’s pregnancy first?

Members of the royal family will likely be the first ones to know when Markle and Harry are expecting once again. But outside of her mom Doria Ragland and the royals, a few of Markle’s closest friends who will also be at the top of the list to know.

This includes Amal Clooney, who has become one of Markle’s closest friends in London. Amal and her husband, George Clooney, were also in attendance at Markle and Harry’s wedding in 2018, and are believed to have grown close with Markle and Harry over the past year.

Markle is also great friends with Priyanka Chopra, Serena Williams, and Jessica Mulroney. As royal watchers will recall, Mulroney was good friends with Markle before she tied the knot with Harry and even helped her pick out a wedding dress. Markle, meanwhile, has been pals with Williams since 2014 and has cheered on the tennis pro in several tournaments. Markle originally met Chopra in 2015 and the two have been close ever since.

Any of these women will probably be kept in the loop when Markle gets pregnant, though there is no telling who will be the first to know.

When will Prince Harry and Meghan Markle make the big announcement?

By all accounts, it sounds like it is only a matter of time before Harry and Markle announce their second pregnancy. After all, the couple previously noted that they want to have several children, though whether or not they have more than two is yet to be seen.

Until we hear anything new, it is very likely that Harry and Markle will keep things tightly under wraps. While they will eventually let the public know, it might be a long time before they make the announcement.

In her interview, Nicholl pointed out that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry want to give Archie as normal of a life as they can manage. This is one reason why the couple has been very selective about when they share photos of Archie.

They have also kept him out of the spotlight and will likely continue to do so until he gets older. Fans have not reacted positively to this decision, mostly because they want to see as much of baby Archie as possible. Hopefully, Markle and Harry ease up a bit after they have their second child.

The royal family has not commented on the pregnancy rumors surrounding Meghan Markle.
