Meghan Markle and Prince Harry announced they are expecting their second child
In the sweet snap, the couple were sat under a tree, with Harry resting his hand on Meghan’s head as she lay in his lap cupping her burgeoning bump.
Speaking to Fabulous, Judi James said this pose shows the doting dad in an “almost ecstatic state,” sitting barefoot on the grass, cradling his wife’s head in his lap.
“She is his sole focus and the very gentle-looking cupping of her head suggests a fierce desire to protect her,” she added.
What’s more, Judi pointed out Harry’s “besotted” smile, which suggests “how keen he is to produce the message of an idyllic state in terms of happiness and lifestyle” – despite his sitting position which she said actually looks to be a pretty uncomfortable.
This will be their second child with after Archie, now one
As for the expectant mum. Judi said Meghan’s gaze suggests “mutual joy”.
She said: “Meghan gazes up into his face and their mirrored ‘pinging’ smiles suggest mutual joy.”
She added: “With Harry’s bare feet turned to camera and their very casual clothing the couple seem to want to signal a sense of simplicity in both emotions and lifestyle.
“Shot in their favourite monochrome though, this looks for all the world like a high-end advert or Vogue shoot, with it’s ‘locked and lost in love’ pose and the idyllic country setting.”
