“…They didn’t need any direction, because they are, and always have been waltzing through life together as absolute soulmates. When you see people who have the connection that they have, it’s like reading the pages of a book.”

Since there departure from their senior roles in the royal family, they still have growing “hate” for social media sites.

The announcement on Sunday irked one of their well-known critic’s, journalist Piers Morgan, who called the announcement a “cheesy attempt” to “ensure media coverage”.

Morgan’s critique is based on the couple’s rhetoric for a need for privacy, one of the many reasons they left the royal family and photos like these doesn’t help their argument.

Hitting back at the criticism of his sourness Morgan responded: “They don’t want privacy. They want publicity but only if it’s positive. So today they let all the papers they hate publish their baby announcement photo because it enhances their brand. A few days ago, they were trashing the same papers as dehumanising invaders of their privacy.”

The royal family, Queen Elizabeth, Prince Phillip and Prince Charles are reportedly delighted with the news of the couple’s second pregnancy.

Meghan gave birth to firstborn Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor on 6 May 2019.
