Photographer Misan Harriman, a friend of the couple, posted the family portrait on Instagram Monday, a day after the duke and duchess revealed to Oprah Winfrey they are expecting a baby girl. The couple had announced Duchess Meghan’s pregnancy on Valentine’s Day through a spokesperson, but kept the child’s sex under wraps.
“What wonderful news to celebrate on International Women’s Day!” Harriman wrote in the caption. “Congratulations my friends, and welcome to the #girldad club H”
In the black-and-white photo, Duchess Meghan dons a flowing dress and stands barefoot outside with her husband behind her. She holds their son Archie, who turns 2 in May, in her arms above her visible baby bump. The Duke of Sussex, also barefoot, wears a button-down shirt and pants.
Harriman previously shared a different black-and-white image of the couple to celebrate their pregnancy announcement on Valentine’s Day. In the image, posted on Instagram, a barefoot Harry sits on the grass with Meghan in his lap, her hand draped over a prominent baby bump visible under her casual maxi-dress. Harriman’s hashtags note the photo was shot remotely on an iPad.
Among the many bombshells in their CBS interview, Duchess Meghan alleged unnamed palace officials expressed “concerns” about the color of Archie’s skin during her pregnancy.
“In those months when I was pregnant, and at the same time there was talk about no title, no security, and also conversations about how dark his skin might be when born,” she said. Who is saying that? Winfrey demanded. Meghan wouldn’t answer, because “that would be very damaging to them.” Later in the interview, Harry also refused to discuss it.
Winfrey said Monday on “CBS This Morning” that Harry said neither the queen nor Prince Philip were involved in those conversations.
