Harry and Meghan are already parents to a son, Archie, who was born in May 2019.
In November of last year, Meghan announced that she had tragically suffered a miscarriage in the summer of 2020.
Writing in the New York Times, she said: "After changing his [Archie's] diaper, I felt a sharp cramp. I dropped to the floor with him in my arms, humming a lullaby to keep us both calm, the cheerful tune a stark contrast to my sense that something was not right.
"I knew, as I clutched my firstborn child, that I was losing my second. Hours later, I lay in a hospital bed, holding my husband’s hand."
