MEGHAN Markle revealed she and Prince Harry are having a baby girl, in their tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey.
The Duchess of Sussex, 39, told the chat show host, 67, that although they waited to find out Archie’s gender, this time they chose to find out whether they are having a boy or a girl.

Speaking on Oprah With Meghan And Harry: A CBS Primetime Special, Meghan and Harry made the revelation.
Oprah asked Harry how he felt learning he would have a daughter, and Harry gushed: “Amazing. Just grateful.
“To have any child, any one or any two, would have been amazing. But to have a boy and then a girl, what more can you ask for. We’ve got our family—the four of us and our two dogs.”
Oprah added: “Done?” and Meghan responded, “Done. Two is it.”
When asked when their baby girl is due, Meghan confirmed "summertime", which means she could arrive after Archie's second birthday in May.
The couple announced on Valentine's Day that they were expecting their second child.
The wonderful news comes just months after Meghan revealed her "unbearable grief" after suffering a miscarriage in July.
Their spokesman added last month: “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are overjoyed to be expecting their second child.”
The Queen and the rest of the royal family were said to be "delighted" at the news – with the baby due later this year.
Meghan and Harry, 36, along with one-year-old son Archie now live in Santa Barbara in a £11m mansion and are neighbours of Oprah.
The explosive interview is airing on CBS in the US, and will be shown in the UK on ITV on Monday at 9pm.
The “primetime special” with Meghan and Harry was initially set to last 90 minutes, but CBS extended it to two hours.
Meghan and Harry signed up for the interview to have the freedom to "speak their truth".
Oprah confirmed ahead of the two-hour special airing that "no subject is off-limits”.
In a dramatic preview of their tell-all interview, Harry said that his "biggest concern was history repeating itself" in a hint towards his mother's own struggle in the Firm.
Meghan cradled her baby bump while the host asked her whether she was "silent, or silenced" by the Royal Family.
And the Duchess of Sussex also accused Buckingham Palace of “perpetuating falsehoods”.
In the clip, released by CBS, Meghan claims she wasn’t even allowed to speak to Oprah in 2018 without someone listening in.
A clearly angry Meghan said: “I don’t know how they could expect that after all of this time we would still just be silent if there is an active role that The Firm is playing in perpetuating falsehoods about us.
“And if that comes with risk of losing things, there is a lot that has been lost already.”

THE ‘SECRET MEANING’ BEHIND MEGHAN’S OPRAH DRESS REVEALED
Meghan Markle chose a dress with a secret meaning for her bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey, it is claimed.
The Telegraph claimed that the £3,600 long triple silk georgette dress features a lotus flower design, which Meghan chose for its “symbolic meaning of revival”.
They wrote: “The lotus flower’s daily resurrection is considered proof of its determination and will to live.
“The Duchess understands that a lotus seed can withstand thousands of years without water, able to germinate over two centuries later.
“This ‘refusal to accept defeat’ is very much how she sees her own battle against the pressures of royal life.”
The royal couple apparently failed to inform the monarch of their plans to chat to the American chat show host.
News of the big interview emerged after the couple announced Meghan's third pregnancy – and days before Buckingham Palace confirmed the pair will never return as senior royals.
Members of the Royal family usually run potential TV interview opportunities past the Queen in advance.
A global TV audience of hundreds of millions in 70 countries is expected to watch the interview.
Royal insiders said members of the family were not planning to stay up until 1am, when the Stateside interview will be screened UK time.
Instead, the Queen will be given a breakfast briefing by aides this morning.
Sources close to her said she will continue to focus on national issues this week.
