What Prince Harry And Meghan Markle Plan To Do After The Arrival Of Their Daughter

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are expecting their second child together. The couple is set to welcome a baby girl sometime over the summer in 2021, making them a family of four. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will raise their family in their $14 million mansion in Montecito, California, which they purchased in the summer of 2020, according to Page Six. The 18,000-square-foot abode has plenty of room for their son, Archie, who is busy toddler, and one of its nine bedrooms will undoubtedly be turned into a nursery for the newborn.

According to another report from Page Six, Meghan and Harry are planning to have a home birth this time around. The couple was hoping to have a home birth when they welcomed baby Archie, but, at the time, it was determined that a hospital birth was the safer option — in 2019, Meghan and Harry had been living in the UK, and were both working members of the royal family. A source told Page Six that Meghan Markle's home in California is a "beautiful setting to give birth to her baby girl." The Duke and Duchess already have plans for what they will do after the littlest Mountbatten-Windsor joins the family. Read on to find out what those plans are.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle plan on staying home with their new baby

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have agreed to take some time off from their busy lives when their new arrival makes her grand entrance into the world, according to Vanity Fair. "They will both take some proper time off," a source told the outlet, adding that "it will be the summer and they want to make sure they both take their leave so they have some real quality time together once the baby arrives."

The site goes on to point out that things were much different in Harry and Meghan's lives when they welcomed Archie back in 2019. Harry was forced to return to work "just days" after Archie's arrival, flying to the Netherlands "for a work commitment." Meanwhile, Meghan also kept busy despite becoming a first-time mom. She edited an issue of British Vogue and designed "a capsule collection for Smart Works." Things are going to look quite a bit different this time around, and many hope they enjoy every moment as this will be their last child. During their tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey that aired on March 7, 2021, the couple made it quite clear that there won't be any more children coming down the pike. "Two it is," Harry told Oprah, according to People.
