“They’ve always talked about having two children close in age. So when Meghan learned that she was expecting just a few months after giving birth to Archie, she and Harry were ecstatic,” adds the source.
“Harry has already picked her name: It’s going to be Diana, after his late mum,” the source continues.
“Meghan’s completely on board with it. She knows Harry and Diana shared a special bond.”
The news will further solidify Meghan’s place in the royal household, where she is already hugely popular with the future king, Prince Charles. Another person who is as thrilled as Charles is Meghan's mum Doria Ragland.
According to a US report, doting father-in-law Prince Charles has "taken Meghan under his wing" and the "two get on like a house on fire."
“Charles speaks to Meghan most weeks to see how she’s doing, he rarely picks up the phone to call Kate,” adds the insider.
“He’ll invite the Sussexes over without telling or asking William and Kate and days later, he’ll let it slip in conversation, leaving William fuming.”
Whether Meghan and Harry’s happy news serves to heal family wounds remains to be seen. But after a terrible year for the royals so far, royal fans can only hope so.
