Meghan Markle’s due date is in early summer, and Prince Harry could not be happier. “Harry and Meghan have always wanted a couple of kids—a little brother or sister for Archie, and they’re excitedly planning for the arrival of their bundle of joy,” a source told Us Weekly. “It’s a dream come true. … Meghan fell pregnant again toward the end of last year. The baby is due at the end of spring.”
Despite the couple’s excitement, they recognize it was a difficult year for everyone during the pandemic. So Meghan has decided not to have a baby shower.
“Meghan doesn’t feel a big baby shower with gifts is appropriate right now,” a source told Us Weekly. “There is too much strife in the world. She and Harry have been so involved with humanitarian issues, they both feel their time and resources can be used for a better purpose.”
On Saturday, Meghan made a virtual appearance at the Global Citizen’s VAX Live: The Concert to Reunite the World. “My husband and I are thrilled to soon be welcoming a daughter,” the 39-year-old said. “It’s a feeling of joy we share with millions of other families around the world. When we think of her, we think of all the young women and girls around the globe who must be given the ability and the support to lead us forward.”
“Their future leadership depends on the decisions we make and the actions we take now to set them up, and set all of us up, for a successful, equitable, compassionate tomorrow,” Meghan said. “We want to make sure that as we recover, we recover stronger. That as we rebuild, we rebuild together.”
Meghan has the constant “support of her friends and, most importantly,” Prince Harry, a source said. “Harry is the ideal partner, taking care of Archie and working to provide for his family.”
Working is right! Harry has just been announced as an executive producer alongside Oprah Winfrey for Apple TV+’s new series, The Me You Can’t See. With a focus on mental health, the series will shed light on the journey and struggles of popular icons who have battled against mental issues in their life.
In Meghan Markle’s bombshell interview with Oprah in March, the former Duchess admitted that she has dealt with a lot of mental health challenges. She even told Oprah (and the rest of the world) that she has experienced suicidal thoughts.
While some believe that the interview was a launching pad for Harry and Meghan’s Hollywood careers, it is clear that Meghan and Harry feel strongly about educating Americans on the subject. Harry has spoken out about mental health issues for a number of years. He has been open about the fact that Diana’s death had a profound emotional impact on his life.
