Prince Harry has been dropping hints he could be ready to give 6-month-old baby Archie a younger brother or sister.
The Duke of Sussex was asking families what it was like to have a second child as he made a surprise visit to a military families gathering alongside his wife Meghan Markle on Wednesday.
Fellow parent Susie Stringfellow told Forces Network: “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.
Another military wife, Victoria Tucker, said: “They were talking about Army life, being away for Christmas… they can compare with us. They didn’t want to miss anything, with their little boy now, just how our husbands miss their children.”
Harry said of meeting the families, “It’s unbelievably hard. I have so much respect and admiration for anyone who has to deal with that. I can’t imagine what it’s like to miss so much as they change so quickly.”
