Meghan Markle and Prince Harry odds-on to announce second baby after Royal split

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are odds-on to announce a second baby after they split from the Royal Family following a crunch summit with The Queen.

Harry and Meghan are set to leaving the fold of The Firm this year to strike out in their new life spending more time in the US and Canada.

The Queen confirmed she had given the okay to their plans after a big meeting at Sandringham Estate yesterday with the Duke of Sussex along with Prince Charles and Prince William.

And with Meghan reportedly wanting to stay in Canada , flying back last week to be with baby Archie, speculation is now growing of the future of their young family.

Leading bookmaker Coral has made it evens that the couple will announce a second child in 2020.

And the couple have appeared to have dropped some hints along was that a new baby might be in their future.

Coral spokesman Harry Aitkenhead said: “Nobody knows quite what the future holds for Harry and Meghan at the moment but our odds suggest a second baby is definitely a likely addition to the family in the near future.

“We make it just evens this year that the couple announce they are expecting.”

The odds shift means that the Sussexes are now more likely to announce a pregnancy than Prince William and Kate Middleton – who come in at 2-1.

Harry and Meghan are expected to form a “progressive new role” within the Royal Family – while also launching their own private ventures.

In an apparent hint at dreams of another baby, Harry appeared to suggest another tot while on a visit to an army wives coffee morning in Windsor.

Speaking to Forces Network, mother-of-two Susie Stringfellow revealed Prince Harry asked her what it is like to have a second baby.

She said: "Harry was really quite interested in how things were with second children as well because we both have older children.

“We were trying to encourage him to have a second baby,” she added.

Some royal commentators reacted by saying the question might be a hint another Sussex could be in the near future.

Harry and Meghan have also previously spoken about how the couple wants to have a maximum of two children in order to minimise their family's impact on the environment.

Royal sources also previously suggested Meghan could choose to have her second child in Los Angeles.

She said that being pregnant in the UK without her close pals and family left her feeling “lonely”.

“Meghan already told pals that when she comes to deliver her next baby – she would like to do it in LA where she was born and bred,” one pal told OK! Magazine.

And one psychic has even predicting Meghan and Harry will welcome a second child amid a “turbulent” 2020.

Sky, fromPsychic2Tarot, told this website they will have struggles this year – seemingly predicting the most recent drama as Harry and Meghan split off from the Royals.

She said: “I expect a turbulent start to 2020 for Harry and Meghan but a much calmer close to the year as they heal rifts and get ready to welcome another child.”

The psychic also predicted that Meghan and Harry may have more than two kids, despite their claims.

“I don’t believe their family will stop at two children. I see a bigger family for this particular couple,” she added.

Harry’s brother William has enjoyed a large family with his wife Kate, having three children so far – with George, Charlotte and Louis.

His dad Charles and Princess Diana however only had two kids amid their turbulent relationship, just their boys William and Harry.

And meanwhile The Queen had four children, with Charles, Anne, Andrew and Edward.

Harry’s uncle Andrew also has two kids like Charles, with his daughters Beatrice and Eugenie.

And with Meghan reportedly wanting to raise Archie in Canada, it may be that any future Sussexes will also not be raised in the UK.

Harry and Meghan’s decision to leave the The Firm comes after months of speculation about them drifting away from the rest of the Royals.

William had reportedly warned Harry about rushing into marrying Meghan after first meeting her – citing advance from their mum Princess Diana.

And there were rumoured to be further tensions between William’s wife Kate and Meghan.

The Sussexes spent Christmas and New Year far away from the rest of the family in Canada.

And once they returned Harry reportedly had a flurry of talks with The Queen and Charles before suddenly releasing the statement announcing their intentions.

Following the intense meeting yesterday at Sandringham, The Queen said she would allow Harry and Meghan to quit as senior royals – but expressed her sadness.

The 93-year-old monarch said they had “constructive discussions” and that the family were “entirely supportive of Harry and Meghan’s desire to create a new life as a young family”.

She added she was disappointed the Sussexes wouldn’t remain full-time working members of the Royal Family.

Harry and Meghan are now expected to spend most of their time in Canada with Archie.

Meghan has said she will not come back to the UK to live, according to reports, and it is said the couple always attended to cross the Atlantic.

Meghan was not involved in yesterday’s conference, with the Duchess of Sussex barred from joining due to concerns about eavesdropping via Skype.

The Queen has reportedly ordered staff to find solutions to further questions about the Sussexes’ new position “within days”.

Royal aides are expected to draw up guidelines about what the Harry and Meghan can use their branding for in future commercial ventures.

Prince Charles has reportedly warned Harry and Meghan he will not prop up their new lifestyle – with the heir-to-throne already giving them a £2.3 million allowance from the Duchy of Cornwall.

It is expected Harry and Meghan are going to look to capitalise on brand Sussex, starting new business ventures, sponsorships and even looking for more movie roles for The Duchess.

The Queen has indicated the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are to start a more "independent life" away from full-time royal duties.

They will begin a transition period of splitting their time between the UK and Canada.

She said her family "respect and understand" their wishes for more independence while still remaining a "valued part" of the monarchy.

In a highly unusual move Harry and Meghan were not referred to as the duke and duchess in the statement, only as the Sussexes and by their first names.

It has raised questions about whether they will retain their titles in the future.

Talks between the four Royals – the first time they met face-to-face since Harry went public with his plans – were described as “very constructive”.

It is unusual for the Queen to issue a statement in her own name – when not paying condolences following a natural disaster or the death of a world leader.

The move is seen as symbolic of the sovereign taking charge of the crisis that threatens to cause lasting damage to the monarchy.

The head of state also expressed the "support" of herself and the rest of the family for the couple's aspiration to create a new life together with their eight-month-old son Archie.

But she stressed the discussions were "complex matters" for her family to resolve but she wanted "final decisions" in the "coming days".

The Queen said: "Today my family had very constructive discussions on the future of my grandson and his family.

"My family and I are entirely supportive of Harry and Meghan's desire to create a new life as a young family.

"Although we would have preferred them to remain full-time working Members of the Royal Family, we respect and understand their wish to live a more independent life as a family while remaining a valued part of my family.
