Meghan Markle and Prince Harry could have second baby soon according to royal expert

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry might be set to have their second baby soon.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex welcomed their first child, Master Archie Harrison, back in May.

And despite the fact that their two-month-old son, who was spotted out and about last week with mum Meghan, has only just recently been christened, it seems like the pair may already be thinking about number two.

This morning, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor was christened in the Private Chapel at Windsor Castle at an intimate service officiated by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are so happy to share the joy of this day with members of the public who have been incredibly supportive since the birth of their son. They thank you for your kindness in welcoming their first born and celebrating this special moment. Their Royal Highnesses feel fortunate to have enjoyed this day with family and the godparents of Archie. Their son, Archie, was baptised wearing the handmade replica of the royal christening gown which has been worn by royal infants for the last 11 years. The original Royal Christening Robe, made of fine Honiton lace lined with white satin, was commissioned by Queen Victoria in 1841 and first worn by her eldest daughter. It was subsequently worn for generations of Royal christenings, including The Queen, her children and her grandchildren until 2004, when The Queen commissioned this handmade replica, in order for the fragile historic outfit to be preserved, and for the tradition to continue.

According to one royal expert, we could be seeing the Sussexes welcome their second child towards the later part of next year.

E!’s chief royal correspondent Melanie Bromley revealed the exciting prediction when asked by a royal fan about whether she thinks that Harry and Meghan will have anymore children.

‘I do, and I think it will be really soon,’ she said. ‘I think she will be pregnant by this time next year.’

While this may sounds like relatively bold statement to make, the logic behind Melanie’s prediction actually makes a lot of sense.

‘They have Africa in the [autumn], which will keep them really busy, so after that,’ she said.

Last year when the Sussexes had their tour to Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga planned, royal fans were convinced that the pair would wait until they returned to start trying for a baby.

However, it turned out that the Duchess was already pregnant by then, as the pair announced the exciting news on the first day of their trip.

This was only five months after the royal pair tied the knot in their lavish Windsor ceremony, which suggests that the couple would prefer to move quickly when it comes to extending their family.

And even the bookies are behind this theory.

Bookmaker Coral told the Express that they had been ‘inundated’ with bets on the second Sussex baby making its appearance sometime in 2020.

Suggesting that any insider speculation could actually have some traction behind it, a spokesperson for the bookmaker said: ‘There is seldom smoke without fire.’

Looks like it might be time for bump watch 2.0!
