- Valentine's Day was extra special for Harry and Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. They announced they will soon be a family of four. The new child will be the eighth in line to the British crown and likely have dual U.S. and British citizenship. Here is CBS's Jamie Yuccas.

JAMIE YUCCAS: Beaming in black and white, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex not only reveal the pregnancy, but also a life in stark contrast to the royal duties they left behind.

ANDREW MORTON: I find that there's something very theatrical and almost Hollywood about the pictures. And it reminded me of the Julia Roberts movie "Notting Hill."

JAMIE YUCCAS: "Notting Hill" is the story of a Brit whose relationship with an American actress is tested by the tabloids.

Sound familiar? Royal biographer Andrew Morton.

ANDREW MORTON: They are trying to take command of the narrative of their lives. They're sick of British tabloids, American tabloids trying to shoehorn some kind of bogus narrative about who they are and what they're doing.

JAMIE YUCCAS: The happy news comes after Meghan Markle revealed she suffered a miscarriage in July. 37 years ago, Princess Diana made headlines with the announcement she was pregnant with Harry.

Can you compare, for me, how different these two children's lives will be versus William and Harry's?

ANDREW MORTON: It's going to be a far more relaxed, far more informal lifestyle.

JAMIE YUCCAS: The Royal Family says they "are delighted and wish them well." The couple now lives quietly in Montecito, California, with their son Archie and will break their silence for the first time since the move in an interview with Oprah Winfrey for CBS.

ANDREW MORTON: And what they're trying to do is express themselves with their own words, in their own way.

JAMIE YUCCAS: And judging by these looks of love, there may be nothing so royal as living their truth.
