Exciting news for everyone who loves royal children: Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are reportedly trying to get pregnant.
A source tells Us Weekly that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are “trying for a baby,” and having lots of kids is definitely a priority. “They both want a big family, at least three kids,” the source explains, adding that Meghan is “starting to feel more settled” in her new life as a person who’s super fancy.
An exact timeline hasn’t been revealed (probably because that’s no one’s business, they don’t want too much pressure, and they have other things going on in their lives than procreation plans), but Meghan and Harry have a pretty busy couple months ahead.
Not only are they going to Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank’s upcoming wedding, they’re about to embark on a tour of Australia, Fiji, New Zealand, and the Kingdom of Tonga.
But regardless of when Prince Harry and Markle will decide to get pregnant, it seems that they will never consider giving their future son the name Albert or Arthur. Lucy Devine, a journalist for The Sun, said that this is because of the late Princess Diana.
In Andrew Morton’s book, “Diana: Her True Story – In Her Own Words,” the Princess of Wales shared why she picked William and Harry for her sons.
“I chose the names William and Harry because the alternative was Arthur or Albert. No thank you. There weren’t fights over it. It was just a fait accompli,” she said.
Also, in the book, Princess Diana revealed that she and Prince Charles stayed close until six weeks before the Duke of Sussex was born.
“Then suddenly as Harry was born it just went bang, our marriage, the whole thing went down the drain. I knew Harry was going to be a boy because I saw the scan. Charles always wanted a girl. Harry arrived, Harry had red hair, Harry was a boy…” she said.
