Are Prince Harry & Meghan Markle Already Planning to Give Their Son Archie a Sibling? Here’s What We Know so Far

Although their firstborn, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, is only half a year old, speculations about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s potential plans for a second child has already begun floating around.

But, is there any truth to these suppositions? The couple’s recent visit with military families seems to drop some surprising hints to the question.

Talking About Second Children

According to some sources, Prince Harry was particularly interested in talking about what it’s like to welcome a second kid in the family with his fellow parents during the visit.

This was shared by one of the participants, Susie Stringfellow, who had the chance to converse with the father of one. In the end, she and one attendee encouraged the 35-year-old royal to try for a second child.

Meanwhile, he also talked with the participants about parenthood in general. Prince Harry reportedly shared how he was able to relate to the military families when it comes to missing their children while they’re away.

There’s also the fact that the Duke of Sussex himself used to serve in the Army as well. It can be remembered that he was even deployed to serve in Afghanistan. After about a decade of service, he left his post in 2015.

Bonding Over Motherhood

The couple reportedly surprised the families during their regular weekly meet-up

The Duchess herself bonded with the young families she met about parenthood. She reportedly shared stories about Archie’s milestones from crawling to teething. She also interacted with the children present during the visit and even fawned over the teeth of one little girl, telling her how her son only has two for now.

A military wife, Amy Thompson, whose husband is with the Welsh Guards, had the chance to converse with Meghan Markle as they both have children around the same ages. In the end, Thompson describes the royal to be just like a regular mother and that speaking with her felt just like chatting with a friend.

According to sources, the center where the families with loved ones deployed abroad meet weekly is located near the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s Windsor cottage home. They’ve reportedly been settling down again there with their little one after their recently concluded eventful trip together to Africa.

Excellent Parenting Skills

Although it still remains a mystery whether and when the couple is planning to add a new member to their small family, the idea won’t seem too farfetched. After all, both Markle and the prince think highly of the other as a parent.

The Duchess has described her husband as the ‘best dad’ with the Duke returning the compliment and calling his spouse the ‘best mom’.
