Prince Harry drops hints about planning baby no 2 with Meghan Markle during surprise visit to army families
Prince Harry's conversation during a surprise visit to an Army wives coffee morning get together at the Broom Farm Community Centre in Windsor hinted that baby Archie could be getting a sibling in the future.
Is a sibling coming soon for little baby Archie? Perhaps. Prince Harry dropped some hints during a surprise visit to an Army wives coffee morning get together at the Broom Farm Community Centre in Windsor. Harry visited the wives along with his wife Meghan Markle, sans their 6-month old baby Archie. According to Forces Network, the talk "inevitably" turned to children.
Meghan picked a white puff-sleeve blouse, a black pencil skirt and a pair of Manolo Blahnik pumps for the event and threw on a deep gold-colored coat to keep warm. Harry opted for a casual look in navy round neck sweater, collared shirt, and pants.
"Harry was saying how little Archie was starting to crawl, how they've started eating different foods, [making] all of the funny faces," Army wife Amy Thompson told the publication.
Another mum said that they were inquiring about second children. "Harry was really quite interested in how things were with second children, as well, because we both have older children. And we were trying to encourage him to have a second baby," mom Susie Stringfellow said.
Another Army wife, Victoria Tucker said that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex could relate to what their families were going through. "They were talking about Army life, being away for Christmas…they can compare with us. They didn’t want to miss anything, with their little boy now, just how our husbands miss their children," she said. Prince Harry has previously served 10 years in the army.
But this isn't the first time Harry has hinted at baby number 2. While having a chat with legendary ethologist Dr. Jane Goodall in the Vogue issue that Markle guest-edited, he said that he did, in fact, want to have more kids. "Two, maximum!" he told Goodall, who urged him not to have "too many kids".
"I think, weirdly, because of the people that I've met and the places that I've been fortunate enough to go to, I've always had a connection and a love for nature. I view it differently now, without question," referring to the fact that he has a baby now, "But I've always wanted to try and ensure that, even before having a child and hoping to have children," he said.
