Yesterday, The Duke and Duchess surprised their neighbours in Windsor at a coffee morning for military families in a community centre located in the heart of the Army housing estate. Every year during the month of November we pause to remember and honour all those who have served their country here in the UK, across the Commonwealth and around the world. Their Royal Highnesses also wanted to show support for the families of service personnel who are currently deployed overseas. As we lead up to Remembrance Sunday, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will join Her Majesty The Queen and other Members of the Royal Family at various commemoration events, including the Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall and the Cenotaph. During the visit yesterday, Their Royal Highnesses met with young families who shared their experiences as parents and as couples who are often apart from their loved ones for months at a time. A reminder that a life of service does not simply describe the person wearing the uniform, but the entire family. #Remembrance #Lestweforget
"Harry was really quite interested in how things were with second children," Stringfellow told the network in a video at the event. "We were trying to encourage him to have a second baby."
Another attendee, Victoria Tucker, explained how Harry and Meghan also empathised with the way in which life in the army take soldiers away from their families, relating it to their own experiences of being separated from little Archie.
"They were talking about army life, being away for Christmas... they can compare with us," Tucker said. "They didn't want to miss anything, with their little boy now, just how our husbands miss their children."
Prince Harry personally added, "I can't imagine what it's like to miss so much, as they change so quickly."
If baby number two is in the cards for the Sussex family (and we can only hope it is), then we can be certain that they'll be in the most loving, caring and capable hands of Prince Harry and Meghan.
