- Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are expecting their second child together.
- The couple announced the news on Sunday with a black-and-white photo of Meghan resting her head on Harry's lap, with a big, deep-rooted tree behind them.
- Meghan's longtime friend, photographer Misan Harriman, took the photo, and says it symbolises "fortitude, hope and love".
Misan Harriman, Meghan Markle's longtime friend, is sharing the powerful meaning behind the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's pregnancy announcement photo.
The photographer captured the moment with his iPad while in London – Meghan and Harry are, of course, in California. He told Good Morning America on Tuesday the black-and-white photo symbolises "fortitude, hope and love".
"You don't even see the image, you feel it," he Misan. "They are lost in each other. And the tree in the background and just life growing around them is incredibly powerful and symbolic."
This is Harry and Meghan's second child together – their firstborn, Archie, will turn two in May.
Misan added of the couple: "Honestly, I think the universe would have conspired for them to be together no matter what. It is the real deal. They are waltzing through life together, as it should be.
"To have a new arrival coming is a testament to the power of the relationship that they have."
