The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were ecstatic to announce the sex of their second child in the interview with the Hollywood heavy weight. Prince Harry announced the news, saying “It’s a girl” as Meghan waved her hands in the air with glee. The Prince went on to tell Oprah he felt: “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 could you ask for? Now we’ve got our family, the four of us and our two dogs. It’s great.”

The happy news will be music to the ears of fans of the couple.

A relationship expert has told Express.co.uk she expects the pair to make “excellent parents.”

Relationship expert Karen Mooney is the Founder and CEO of Matchmaking Agency Sara Eden Introductions.

She told Express.co.uk: “Both had difficult childhoods especially Harry with the sudden death of his mother and his life continuously being in the public eye.

“However, both are also aware of the importance of maintaining their positive mental wellbeing and both seem to be coping well and are keen to be good parents.”

Both Meghan and Harry have been vocal about their experiences growing up.

Harry has discussed how he sought councelling in a podcast with writer and mental health advocate Bryony Gordon.

He said he was “very close to total breakdown on numerous occasions when all sorts of grief and lies and misconceptions are coming to you from every angle.”

He linked this to his mother Princess Diana’s high profile death.

Harry said: “I can safely say that losing my mum at the age of 12, and therefore shutting down all of my emotions for the last 20 years, has had a quite serious effect on not only my personal life but my work as well.”

Meghan has a long history of opening up about difficult issues she had experienced in her life.

She wrote about her experience growing up with mixed heritage on her now closed website The Tig.

Most recently she has bravely spoken about mental health issues she faced while a working member of the Royal Family.

In the interview on Monday she spoke about her ill mental health and said: “I share this because, there are so many people who are afraid to voice that they need help, and I know how hard it is to not just voice it but to be told no.”

Being open about these experiences will be key to the couples parenting skills, the expert said.

She went on: “I am sure Harry will make a great dad and Meghan a great mum but coming from such different backgrounds they may find their views on parenting may cause conflict.

“This is something they will have to embrace and work together on to get through the next chapter of their lives.

“I think they will make excellent parents.”

Experts have also discussed Kate Middleton’s parenting in the past. 

Speaking to Express.co.uk, Early Years Expert and Parenting Coach Sophie Pickles said: “Kate’s parenting style encourages her children to learn to be independent and self-sufficient – skills of the utmost importance for the future monarch and his siblings.

“She values communication highly and teaches her children to openly speak about their feelings and opinions.

“The value of play is of great importance to the Duchess as she knows that it is through play that children become better problem solvers, develop higher levels of creativity and grow in independence.”
