In a few months, the Sussexes will be a family of four! On February 14, 2021, on Valentine’s Day, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle proudly announced the arrival of their second child Good news accompanied by a magnificent black and white photo showing the rounded belly of the Duchess Their son Archie (born in May 2019) will therefore become a big brother!
Although they left the monarchy to devote themselves to their new Californian, the Sussexes will see their second child automatically join the order of succession to the throne of England: their baby will be eighth, just behind his big brother Archie Following Queen Elizabeth II, it is indeed Prince Charles (1st) who will inherit the crown, then his eldest son Prince William (2nd) Then come his three children, born from his marriage to Kate Middleton: Prince George (3rd), Princess Charlotte (4th) and Prince Louis (5th) Despite the Megxit, Prince Harry retains his rank of sixth heir to the throne, ahead of his son Archie (7th)
The arrival of the Sussexes’ second child will upset the order of succession for those after him: (maligned) Prince Andrew will find himself in 9th place, in front of his daughters, Princesses Beatrice (10th) and Eugenie ( 11th)
As they did with their eldest son, christened Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will certainly prefer to raise their second child without royal title, like an (almost) ordinary citizen A decision all the more justified today, since they have definitely distanced themselves from the monarchy in the hope of a peaceful family life, far from protocol and media pressure
However, unlike his big brother born at Portland Hospital in London, the baby should be born in California It’s been almost a year now that Meghan Markle and Harry have put their suitcases in a large villa located in Montecito, near Santa Barbara It is also from home that they would have recorded their next event interview with their neighbor, a certain Oprah Winfrey
