Meghan Markle and Prince Harry recently announced the pregnancy of their second child. This announcement was one that was met with a lot of celebration from all over the world, particularly in light of Markle’s recent openness about the miscarriage she had last summer.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced the big news in the form of a photograph, one that was taken through unconventional methods. While the couple was located in Los Angeles, the photographer was based in London.
Misan Harriman made a virtual appearance on Good Morning America, where he explained how technology played a pivotal role in the photo shoot, and how he was able to snap the perfect pic.
