“When the doctor told us it was only a matter of minutes away, I said to Meg, ‘I want my face to be the first thing the baby sees,'” the prince wrote. We knew it would be a girl. She accepted and took my hand. The Duke of Sussex would thus have come to the aid of the Duchess, before putting their daughter in her arms. “I have never been so in love with you as at this moment”, his wife would have slipped to him afterwards.

A “huge blunder”

Prince Harry also returned to the day he announced the first pregnancy of Meghan Markle, then pregnant with Archie, to the royal family. He thus confirmed the rumor according to which he had revealed this information… at the wedding of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank, in October 2018. A decision described as “huge blunder” by journalists Dylan Howard and Andy Tillet.

This choice would not have been to the taste of Sarah Ferguson either, furious to see her daughter being thus stolen from the spotlight. For his part, Prince Harry maintains in his book that he had no other option than to announce it before the princely tour of the Sussexes in Australia. The wedding seemed to them the perfect opportunity to share this announcement with as many people as possible.

The smile of King Charles III

Before the reception, the couple would have joined Charles III in his Windsor office to tell him the news. The latter would have smiled at the prospect of becoming a grandfather for the fourth time. Prince William and Kate Middleton would have, in turn, welcomed this revelation with joy. “Kate smiled at me, too, and congratulated me warmly, continues Prince Harry. They both reacted exactly as I hoped, as I had wished. Two years later, the announcement of “Megxit” would mark the end of this cordial agreement.
