Prince Harry and Meghan Markle keen for babies ASAP, says royal biographer

Posted in Relationships.

Royal expert Katie Nicholl says Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are fairly busting to have babies – and that the former Suits star was also extra eager to make friends with Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

“Keen to start a family”

Harry and Meghan’s wedding is just weeks away now, and the word about the inner circle is that Harry in particular is hoping to be a dad sooner rather than later. The pair are due to wed on May 19th, and a royal biographer says we shouldn’t be surprised if the pair announce baby plans fairly quickly after that.

“My sources are saying that Prince Harry, particularly, is very keen to start a family, pretty soon after the royal wedding,” Katie told ET. “He’s made no secret about wanting children.”

Meet the mini-royals

Katie, who wrote Prince Harry’s biography Harry: Life, Loss, and Love spoke to ET about the pair. She revealed that Meghan was looking forward to ducking in on William, Kate and family when she was spending time with Harry early on.

“Meghan was really keen to obviously meet Prince William and Kate, but she really wanted to meet Princess Charlotte and Prince George … it is just a walk across the courtyard from Prince Harry’s cottage, which is Nottingham Cottage, to the big house where William and Kate’s children live.”

“Meghan is very doting with children. She is very maternal and she was thrilled to meet George and Charlotte,” Katie said.

Just a regular family?

According to this royal expert, Harry wanted to show Meghan that royal family life can have some semblance of normality, amidst all the protocol and media scrutiny. William and Kate are apparently an example of that.

“He wanted Meghan to meet Prince George and Princess Charlotte so she could see … that you marry into the Royal Family, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a regular family with cute children, and here are George and Charlotte to show that can happen. That was really important to him,” Katie said.

Time will tell, of course, and this couple will make their own plans and let us in on them when the time is right.

In the mean time we’ll focus on the actual confirmed royal baby – Kate and William’s third child – that’s due very shortly and put Meghan and Harry’s hypothetical babies aside!
