The couple revealed they wanted to know their baby’s sex this time, implying they didn’t know Archie’s before. When Oprah asked Harry how he felt about having a girl, he shared he felt grateful for the news. 

The family of four will live everyday life as civilians after Meghan and Harry stepped down from royal duties. Meghan and Harry are currently raising Archie in California and will likely welcome their little girl there. 

Better Luck The Second Time

In the interview, Meghan revealed devastating facts about her experience when she was pregnant with Archie. She shared that the royal family members discussed her baby’s skin tone and stripped him of royal security. 


“All around this same time, we have in tandem the conversation of he won’t be given security, he’s not going to be given a title and also concerns and conversations as to how dark his skin might be when he’s born,”

These discussions about a royal grandson made Meghan and Harry fearful for Archie’s well-being. Meghan even revealed that they knew they had to leave the institution once Archie was born to shield him. 

This time around, the couple are in a safer space away from the monarchy and British disapproval. We are glad that Meghan will have a much better experience with her daughter, who is due in the summer.
