Meghan Markle is becoming one of the most popular members of the British royal family. Sure, Kate Middleton might have temporarily stolen her thunder after she gave birth to her third child, Prince Louis, but that’s not going to last for long. That’s because Meghan is getting ready to walk down the aisle to marry her own Prince Charming, Prince Harry. And from what we can gather already, it’s definitely going to be the social event, and if not the wedding of the year.
When it comes to Meghan, a lot of people love the fact that she’s such an outsider to the British royal family. Simply put, she’s not like the other royals or even the Duchess of Cambridge for that matter. She marches to the drum of her own beat. She’s also very passionate about her charity work and wanting to make the world a better place.
Yet, we have a feeling that she and Prince Harry are going to waste no time in starting their own royal family. After all, the two lovebirds are madly in love. Prince Harry has also made it no secret that he wants to be a father. With that being said, here are 20 reasons why we think Meghan Markle will get pregnant by the end of the year!
20 They Are Madly In Love
It’s without a doubt that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are madly in love. Royal critics see it, Queen Elizabeth sees it, and heck everyone on this planet sees it. And because of this, everyone thinks that they will be wasting no time in starting their own royal family. We can picture the little cute mini Harry and Meghan’s now!
Yet, there are some media outlets out there that think Meghan Markle wears the “trousers” in their royal relationship. In other words, it’s Meghan who is calling all the shots.
We can definitely see this, especially since Prince Harry is head-over-heels in love with Meghan. But then again, this might not last forever. Because if there’s one person who is really calling the shots in the monarchy, it’s Queen Elizabeth herself.
“She is definitely the one wearing the trousers in their relationship,” a royal insider told People Magazine recently. “She is a strong, opinionated woman who has her own ideas about things, and that’s one of the things he loves about her. Meghan was established before she met Harry. That’s a first for the royal family. I don’t think Harry was ever going to marry a nice upper-class girl from the [English] counties—it’s just not him.”
19 They Are A ‘Touchy Feely’ Couple
Here’s a fact: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are not only in love, but very attracted to each other, too. You can tell by the way they look at each other, by the way, they are “touchy feely” and how they just ooze love and romance. In other words, they can’t wait to get it on! We’re not blind, people. Seriously, this couple is hot and they know it! They’ll be making babies in no time.
If that weren’t enough, Harry has made it pretty clear that he’s been waiting to take the next step in his life for a very long time.
He’s just been waiting for a girl like Meghan Markle to appear in front of his very own eyes.
“Harry’s drinking days are over,” one source told Pepole Magazine. “All of his best friends have settled and had children, so he’s had fewer people to go out and play with. He realized he was getting a bit older and that it was time to settle down a little bit. He desperately wanted to get married and be happy. He sees his brother [Prince William] has found that. The fact that Meghan arrived when she did completes it for Harry.”
18 Prince Harry’s Already Got Baby Fever
Also, Prince Harry has made it no secret throughout the years that he definitely wants to become a father. Some people will even go as far as saying that he probably is more eager about fatherhood in general than his own brother, Prince William. You can tell by the way he interacts with children. Each time Prince Harry is at one of his royal engagements or public appearances, his eyes light up whenever he sees kids. Some royal critics have even said that Harry is a natural with young babies, just like his mother Princess Diana used to be. In other words, Meghan Markle should consider herself to be one very lucky woman. That’s because Prince Harry was born to become a father.
Pop Sugar reports, “Harry, who is also uncle to Kate Middleton and Prince William's two children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, then talked about the possibility of starting a family of his own. ‘I, of course, I would love to have kids,’ he said. His statement should come as no surprise, as multiple people close to the royal have confirmed over the past few months that he and Meghan could be headed down the aisle. ' a source said in March. Little royal redheads really would be the best thing ever.’”
17 The Way She Looks At Him…
Yes, we’ve seen Prince Harry give Meghan Markle plenty of looks of love in public and especially these last several months. And of course, Meghan is no different. She found her prince charming and she knows it!
After all, Prince Harry was considered one of the most eligible bachelors in the world for several long years.
Who wouldn’t want to marry someone like Harry? He’s the full package. He’s smart, he’s charming, he’s handsome, and most importantly, he’s a royal.
Now, Meghan never thought in a million years that she would be in the position that she is in right now. In a few short weeks, she’s going to be a royal princess! She is seriously living every girl’s fantasy. We have no doubt in our minds that she is going to be putting a lot of effort in making sure that her love with Harry lasts in their marriage.
Speaking about love and romance, according to Brainy Quotes, Meghan once said, “At the end of the day, if the guy is going to write the girl a letter, whether it's chicken scratch or scribble or looks like a doctor's note, if he takes the time to put pen to paper and not type something, there's something so incredibly romantic and beautiful about that.”
16 Their Honeymoon Period
Sure, the wedding planning and the actual wedding ceremony are all very exciting. But you know what’s even more exciting for a new, hot royal couple? Getting to really know each other during their honeymoon period! And we have a feeling that it’s going to feel like pure bliss for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. After all, they are planning on spending their first few weeks as husband and wife in an ultra-romantic getaway in Africa. They will be visiting Namibia, which happens to be a country that is very near and dear to Prince Harry’s heart. We’re also pretty sure that this won’t be their one and only visit to the gorgeous African country! We seriously can’t wait to hear more about it.
Here’s how People Magazine describes it: “In Namibia, Hoanib Valley Camp has been tipped as a possible honeymoon spot for the couple. Nestled in Kaokoland, one of Namibia’s most remote and wild locations, the luxury camp, — which costs $660 per person, per night — is surrounded by towering mountains, sand dunes and huge expanses of desert. It is also home to unique wildlife, which is a major draw for Harry. Conservation efforts in Africa are one of the royal’s principle causes.”
15 Getting To Work… Pronto!
Back in 2011, a lot of people were pretty surprised that Prince William and Kate Middleton didn’t work on starting their family right away. As a matter of fact, the Duchess of Cambridge didn’t announce her pregnancy until December 2012. She ended up giving birth to the couple’s first child, Prince George, in July 2013. And for a lot of royal observers, that’s a really, really long time in monarchy years. Many royal couples get to work pronto, so to speak.
They don’t waste any time when it comes to the baby making business. There are heirs, spares, and so many more to consider.
Ha! We have a feeling that Harry and Meghan aren’t going to need much convincing in this department.
Britain’s Express writes, “Although not laid down in law, throughout Britain’s history it has been expected that newlywed royals will get on with the serious business of increasing the number of heirs immediately. Meghan will be expected to follow in this royal tradition," according to royal biographer, Andrew Morton.
He said: “The expectations amongst Meghan friends and family is that she will be pregnant very quickly after the wedding. She’s 36. No time to wait. It’s part of the conversation about who they are as a couple.”
14 Keeping The Ball Rolling After The Middleton Sisters
Also, here’s another reason why Meghan Markle might be getting pregnant before you know what: she might want to keep the ball rolling after the Middleton sisters. Just recently, the Duchess of Cambridge gave birth to her third child, Prince Louis. And a day before she gave birth, her sister Pippa Middleton announced that she was pregnant with her first child, too! So why not continue the momentum and get pregnant by the end of the year too, right? It’s not like Meghan Markle needs to be pressured to sleep with her future royal husband, ha! We have a feeling that she’ll gladly volunteer to do her work in the bedroom, too. Hey, did we just go too far there? * Wink *
According to an ITV documentary (via Britain’s Express paper), “Royal Wives of Windsors, historian Piers Brendan said: ‘The traditional duty of the wife was to provide an heir and spare. The key business of royalty is continuity, survival. ‘Harry and Meghan revealed in a BBC interview following the announcement of their engagement last November revealed there are plans for a royal baby in the near future. When asked Harry responded: ‘Not currently, no. No, of course, you know, I think one step at a time, and hopefully we'll start a family in the near future.’”
13 Keeping The Royal Cousins Close In Age
Also, it will be a lot of fun to seeing the royal cousins grow up so close in age. Prince William and Kate Middleton have three children: 4-year-old Prince George, 3-year-old Princess Charlotte, and their newborn son Prince Louis. It would be wonderful if Prince Harry and Meghan Markle could produce children sooner rather than later just so their cousins could have some fantastic royal play dates! The longer Harry and Meghan wait, the older the other kids will be. But no pressure or anything, you guys.
What’s more, recent reports also said that Prince William and Kate Middleton’s children are expected to be a part of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding. How exciting!
Here’s what Page Six has to say about it, “Princess Charlotte, 3, proved she’s got the sass in a brief appearance at the Lindo Wing this month where she showed off her royal wave. She’s also had flower girl duties before, at the wedding of Pippa Middleton in May 2017.”
Page Six also added, “Prince George, 4, will also be included as a page boy in the royal line up, while brother Prince Louis will likely stay at home as he will be less than one month old.”
12 Meghan’s Age Is A Factor
Now, we are sure that many people probably don’t want to talk about this. But let’s face it: Meghan Markle is not getting any younger. She’s in her late thirties and according to a lot of people, in her prime, especially when it comes to getting pregnant and starting motherhood. These are her best years, both physically and emotionally. Also, a lot of people think that the longer Harry and Meghan wait, the less of a chance they’ll have of having a big, royal family of ginger-haired babies. Hey, you know it’s gonna happen!
Also, Meghan absolutely wants kids. At least, that’s what her family members have been telling the press. Here’s what the UK’s Express has to say: “Erin Specht, who dated Meghan’s brother Tom Markle Jr for about 16 years, believes Meghan is desperate to have a family of her own. In an interview with Australia’s New Idea magazine in March, Ms Specht said: ‘She wants kids. She will be an amazing mother. Meghan will get pregnant in her first year of marriage if she can. For certain she will be trying for a baby on their honeymoon – she is going to be a brilliant mum. Meghan was sweet and kind and had a lovely graceful manner about her.”
11 Prince Harry Has Waited A Long Time For Kids
At this point, you don’t have to be a huge royal fan to know that Prince Harry has always wanted to have children of his own. You can definitely see that sparkle in his eye whenever he is around children. And let’s face it, not a lot of guys out there are the same way. There’s just something about Harry that makes him look like the ultimate family man. It’s no wonder so many people think he’s one of the sexiest men alive. Being a great, supportive and hands-on father certainly helps make you more attractive, especially in the looks department.
Also, another reason why Harry wants to have a family of his own is that he lost his mother Princess Diana at such an early age. And at this point in his life, he’s definitely ready to start the next chapter.
Romer reports, “Prince Harry lost his own mother, the late Princess Diana Spencer, in a horrific car crash at the young age of 12. In the 20 years since the young prince has made his desire for his own family perfectly clear. In 2012 he told ABC News: “I've longed for kids since I was very, very young. I'm waiting to find the right person. Someone who is willing to take on the job.”
10 It’ll Help Keep The Excitement Going
The last 12 months have been pretty huge for the British royal family. Kate Middleton announced a pregnancy and gave birth to another royal prince. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle finally revealed to the world that they are in love and getting married. And if that weren’t enough, even Princess Eugenie is planning her own royal wedding, too! If Meghan Markle gets pregnant sooner rather than later, it will not only keep the royal family in the headlines, but it will also make this one of the busiest years to date in the monarchy. It really does feel like one celebration after another!
Plus, it’s not like anything is holding Prince Harry and Meghan Markle back at this point. All they need to do is get their rings on their fingers and before you know it, we’ll be on baby bump watch. According to Romper, Meghan Markle had this to say about raising a family: “I also dream to have a family. It's all about balance, and I have so much happiness in my career and am fortunate to travel the world and see so many amazing things — it will also be nice to be anchored to something grounded and in the same place. Raising a family will be a wonderful part of that.”
9 They Want To Have Lots Of Kids
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle don’t want to have just one child. As a matter of fact, they want to have several!
Plus, Meghan is eager to start her own family and leave all the drama behind from her old one.
Currently, her half-siblings are giving her a tough time for not being invited to the royal wedding. This is what Good Housekeeping has to say about the situation, “It would be very sad if the guest list overshadows the wedding. [Meghan's half sister] Samantha … feels that some members of the Markle family should have been invited. It is ironic that a few days before the wedding, there will be a Markle Coat of Arms. Traditionally, that’s presented to the father. As I speak now, it’s not certain that he’s even going.
"I spoke to members of the Markle family over the weekend, and they said that not one Markle has been invited, and that includes the father. So, go figure… At the moment, he doesn’t seem to have his invitation. As far as I’m aware, he doesn’t have an air ticket accommodation, or anything else. It looks increasingly like it will be Doria Radlan (Meghan’s mother), who will walk her down the aisle.”
8 Starting Their Own Royal ‘Brand’
There’s a very good chance that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s new family might become their very own “brand” if you know what we mean. They will sort of act like their own, small entity within the British monarchy. Also, it’ll be interesting to see how Harry and Meghan approach the media, especially when their family becomes a “brand.” So far all indications prove that they might keep the press at bay, as they are doing right now. Harry’s not too pleased about the way Meghan has been treated and will most likely be very protective of their kids, too.
The IB Times writes, “I can’t imagine the press officer advising that to the prince. He and Meghan have seen what’s been written and said, ‘We don’t want anyone near the wedding.’ That’s a clear message, yeah,” he said. Markle has not been treated well by the media. Ever since it was revealed that she and Prince Harry were dating, some publications criticized her for being a biracial American who is also divorced. Multiple news companies have also released interviews with Markle’s family members.”
7 All About The New Maternity Trends
We can talk about how Prince Harry and Meghan Markle want to get pregnant until the sun goes down, but let’s not forget something very important here: fashion! Meghan is one of the most stylish women on the planet and it’s without a doubt that she will be quite the fashionista, especially when it comes to her maternity clothes.
Sure, Kate Middleton did a great job of wowing us with her baby bump fashion, but we have a feeling that Meghan will definitely step it up, as she tends to be more on trend when it comes to the latest styles.
Plus, there’s no denying that Meghan has a great eye for the latest looks, trends and accessories out there. We seriously can’t wait to see the future Mrs. Prince Harry pregnant and dressed at her best!
According to Brainy Quotes, Meghan Markle had this to say about her good fashion sense, “Some women are able to wake up looking effortlessly chic - as though a bevy of fashion fairies twisted their low-lit locks into a messy chignon while they slept. They choose a frock from their exceptionally curated closet and leave a trail of custom fragrance and perfection in their wake.”
6 The Timing Is Right
And yes, the timing is absolutely right for Meghan Markle to get pregnant. I mean, if not now, then when? She’s madly in love, she’s got the spotlight on her, and she’s got a husband who is dying to become a father. Chop, chop kids. Time is a-tickin' as they say!
Plus, the couple will have a great place to live with their new family. And from what we can tell, their new pad is going to be both roomy and luxurious. They’ll have plenty of room for their family!
According to new reports, Queen Elizabeth plans on gifting them a country home of their very own. Here’s what The Daily Mirror has to say, “Prince Harry and Meghan Markle… [are] not going to come away completely empty-handed from their wedding. Not if Granny has anything to do with it. The Queen is believed to have a present in mind for the newlyweds, and it’s definitely not a cutlery set or a piece of Wedgwood. No, the likelihood is the happy couple will be gifted with their very own stately home, because she’s the Queen, she’s got homes to spare and that’s how she rolls. Having bestowed Anmer Hall on William and Kate in 2013, it would also only be fair.”
5 Their Kids Will Be The Cutest
With Prince Harry’s rugged good looks and his charm and Meghan Markle’s exotic beauty, there’s no doubt that their future kids are going to be stunning! We seriously can’t wait to see how their kids are going to look like.
And if they are going to be anything like Prince William and Kate Middleton’s kids, they are going to be seriously too cute for words. Now, we know that the British monarchy has a reputation for not being the most photogenic bunch, but things are about to change.
The new generation of royals are not only ready to rule to world, but they are also ruling the gossip and celebrity magazines and headlines, too. In other words, they’ve got the looks! I mean, we’ve all seen how adorbs Princess Charlotte is with her wave, right?
Speaking about her background, Meghan had this to say according to Brainy Quotes, “Just as black and white, when mixed, make grey, in many ways that's what it did to my self-identity: it created a murky area of who I was, a haze around how people connected with me. I was grey. And who wants to be this indifferent color, devoid of depth and stuck in the middle? I certainly didn't.”
4 Princess Diana Didn’t Wait Too Long, Either…
As we all know, Prince Charles and Princess Diana didn’t wait too long before having their first child, Prince William. We have a feeling that Harry and Meghan might end up following in their footsteps.
In the meantime, it looks like Prince Harry isn’t willing to talk about their future plans to the press. As a matter of fact, some are even saying that he is giving the British media quite the cold royal shoulder ahead of their wedding.
Here’s what the IB Times has to say about it: Harry’s relationship with the British media has changed over the years, says Arthur Edwards, a photographer for The Sun. During a recent interview with The New York Times, Edwards said that Prince Harry has become withdrawn because he is generally upset with them.
The photographer said that he initially thought Prince Harry would be in a forgiving mood on his wedding day, but it seems this won’t be the case. On Tuesday, Kensington Palace confirmed that only one reporter will be allowed to enter St. George’s Chapel to cover the royal wedding. Four photojournalists will be given coveted spots outside the chapel. A rep for the palace said the place is small and Prince Harry and Markle’s wedding is not a state occasion.
3 It’ll Bring Meghan And Kate Closer Together
When you have children that are close in age, it tends to help form a bond between two mothers. And that might be the case between Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle. They will be able to rely on each other as both royal moms and of course, sister-in-laws.
Plus, it seems as though Kate is already working at becoming a friend, a sister-in-law and above all, a trusted adviser to Meghan. She’s even helping out with the wedding preparations, too! Here’s what Vanity Fair has to write,
“While some tabloids have tried to suggest that Kate Middleton feels threatened by Meghan Markle’s arrival in the royal family, those in the know say that Prince Harry’s fiancée and the Duchess of Cambridge have become firm friends who trade fashion tips.
"On Wednesday, Meghan paid Kate (who is at home caring for her newborn son) the ultimate fashion compliment by wearing an outfit by one of the duchess’s favorite designers, New Zealand-born Emilia Wickstead. Wickstead has a boutique in London’s Belgravia and provides custom designs for some of her clients. Kate is a huge fan of the colorful yet conservative dresses and has worn Emilia Wickstead for many royal engagements over the years.”
2 It’ll Bring Harry & William Closer Together, Too
Prince William and Prince Harry have always been great brothers and close friends. But as fathers, it will bring them even closer. It’ll be so much fun to see Harry and William engage in light banter over sleepless nights, dirty diapers, and of course, toddler tantrums. We can already see Prince Harry giving his brother William a hard time about who is the more athletic father and so on. Of course, it will all be in good spirits!
With that all being said, it’s without a doubt that fatherhood will definitely bring William and Harry much closer together. Wills will also be a great adviser on all things related to parenthood, too. After all, William is about to become his brother’s best man at his wedding!
Here’s what Forbes Magazine reports, “Although both brothers had joked that it was not ”for sure,” the official announcement came as no surprise for anybody: Prince William will be Prince Harry's "best man" at his wedding.Despite the fact that they both now admit that Harry asked William months ago, the Kensington Palace official announcement this week presented it as hot news: “ Prince William has asked his brother the Duke Of Cambridge to be his Best Man at his wedding to Ms. Meghan Markle.”
1 It’ll Strengthen Meghan & Harry's Bond
Yes, having a baby will definitely bring Prince Harry and Meghan Markle even closer together. Plus, everyone agrees that Prince Harry has picked the right woman in his life. After all, she has so many things in common with his late mother, Princess Diana. Here’s what Britain’s Express has to say about it,
“Andrew Morton, the author of Meghan: A Hollywood Princess, said Meghan will pick up the baton dropped by Diana adding that it strikes him how identical they both truly are.
Coincidentally, Meghan will marry Prince Harry at 36, the same age the late Princess Diana died, says the author. Mr Morton said both Harry's late mother and his future wife have a love for helping people in need, adding they share a desire to give back and make a difference.”
Andrew Morton also told Tatler Magazine, “What unites both of them is the desire in wanting to give back and make a difference. By the time they got into their 30s, Meghan and Diana were independent humanitarians with a vision. And also it strikes me that Diana died at 36 and Meghan’s coming into the family at 36. There’s a sense that Meghan is picking up the baton dropped by Diana."
