Prince Harry And Meghan Markle Pay Subtle Tribute To Princess Diana In Pregnancy Announcement

But there was more to the announcement than meets the eye - it seems they were paying tribute to Harry's late mother Princess Diana in their decision to reveal the news on Valentine's Day.

It was pointed out on Twitter by royal expert Omid Scobie, who noted the significance of the day.

He wrote: "A touching tribute announcing for the Sussexes to announce their exciting news on #ValentinesDay. It was exactly 37 years ago that Princess Diana shared with the world that she was pregnant with Prince Harry."

Yesterday, a statement was released by the couple, which said: "We can confirm that Archie is going to be a big brother. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are overjoyed to be expecting their second child."

A palace spokesman told ET that Harry's royal family members are excited by the news, stating, "Her Majesty, [the] Duke of Edinburgh, [the] Prince of Wales and the entire family [are] delighted and wish them well."

This isn't the first time it's been noticed that the couple have paid tribute to Princess Diana.

When their first son, Archie, was born in May 2019 the pair said in a statement: "The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Lady Jane Fellowes, Lady Sarah McCorquodale and Earl Spencer have been informed and are delighted with the news."

The three people you might find yourself scratching your head about are Lady Jane Fellowes, Lady Sarah McCorquodale and Earl Spencer - they are Princess Diana's side of the family and were clearly recognised as important figures.
