The couple relocated to the US at the start of the year, and Camilla previously told HELLO! that they had decided to start trying for a baby during lockdown as work slowed down.

"Lockdown is why we decided to get pregnant," she said.

"It seemed like a productive use of my time. I don't have to take a career break because it's not like I'm turning down any work."

What's more, the couple will be looking at two fellow parents who are raising a baby in the US: the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

They have met Prince Harry, who is patron of the Rugby Football League, several times. "Harry is a great guy, he's always been very supportive," Chris said.

"When he last visited Harlequins, I gave him a rugby top for Archie. I hope they continue to do well in America. We'll have to invite him and his family over to visit us in San Diego."
