Meghan and Harry ‘like to wind down with family walks’ as they await new baby

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry reportedly love taking Archie for walks on the beach to relax as they prepare to welcome another member of their family.

An insider has spilled on some details of the couple's life in California, which sees them focusing on spending time together and making the most of the outdoors before Meghan gives birth to their second child in the summer.

"To wind down and switch off they go for family walks on the beach and spend time in their beautiful garden," the source told Life & Style.

"Archie's a real water baby and loves being in the pool. Harry can't wait to teach him to swim this summer."

Young Archie, who turns two next month, is also said to be thrilled about becoming a big brother

"Archie can't wait to meet his baby sister and loves putting his hand on his mummy's tummy and feeling the baby move," the source said.

"He's such a caring, bright, loving little boy and is super advanced for his age."

Meghan and Harry are expecting a girl, they confirmed in their Oprah interview, and hinted they'll keep the family small with just two kids — and their two beloved dogs.

Proud grandmother Doria Ragland is also said to be supporting the couple by "helping look after Archie" while Meghan and Harry work on their various projects.

Another source told Closer Weekly: "Being a grandma to Archie brings Doria such joy."

Dora lives in Los Angeles, roughly an hour and a half's drive from the couple's Montecito mansion which they bought last year.

Her support is likely particularly meaningful after Meghan suffered a devastating miscarriage in July 2020 while she was changing Archie.

In a personal piece called The Losses We Share, Meghan wrote in the New York Times: "After changing his diaper, I felt a sharp cramp.

"I dropped to the floor with him in my arms, humming a lullaby to keep us both calm, the cheerful tune a stark contrast to my sense that something was not right.

"I knew, as I clutched my firstborn child, that I was losing my second."

The couple are said to be happy they can raise their children in an environment with less pressure than they would have faced as part of the Royal Family.

Meghan and Harry reportedly made the decision to leave the UK and pursue an independent life in California for Archie's sake.

"Harry firmly believes that Archie should be able to have the freedom he never had," an insider told In Touch last year.

The Duke allegedly believes his son should be "taught the importance of freedom of speech and giving back to the community, and most importantly not to let anything get in the way of achieving his dreams and happiness"
