Looks like Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have honeymoon babies on the way for them. A new report suggests that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are expecting not one but two kids just a month after they tied the knot in a royal ceremony which was live-casted for the world to see on May 19 this year (Note: Meaww cannot independently verify this information).
According to a report published by OK! Magazine (the article has since been removed from their website), which was later quoted by Hollywood Life, the royal couple might be having a boy and a girl soon, and they found out about the pregnancy after they returned from their sunny, East African honeymoon.
According to fact-checking website, Gossip Cop, Kensington Palace has not confirmed Meghan Markle is pregnant with twins, despite the story.
The outlet reported that ever since they found out that they could be expecting a child soon, the duo hasn't been able to shut up about it, and are pretty excited about the news. It is also being reported that Prince William and Kate, Harry's brother and sister-in-law, were the first ones to receive the news from the newlywed couple.
“They were so supportive,” a source for OK! told the mag. “[Harry and Meghan] are just so over the moon with happiness! They didn’t expect it to happen so soon, and they were all the more giddy to learn they were having two — one a boy, the other a girl.” Harry reportedly later informed his father and stepmother, Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla, along with the Queen herself. And the royal family is quite excited about the bundles of joy that they are expecting to get in the next few months.
The report also claimed that Prince Harry has decided to raise the twins in the US with his American wife so that she can be closer to home while raising the kids all by herself. “Meghan has made countless sacrifices to adjust to royal life,” the insider explained. “He knows part of her heart will always be in California, and he wants to ensure that the woman of his dreams — and the mother of his children — is content.”
And although Meghan isn't showing as of now, OK! claims that the Duchess is quite determined to have a smooth pregnancy through and through. “Kate is sharing tips on everything from concealing a baby bump at royal functions to her favorite prenatal workouts,” the outlet’s source said. “She’s had access to the very best health experts throughout her pregnancies, so she’s happy to let Meghan in on everything she knows.”
Prince Harry and Meghan have always been open about their love for kids and their desire to have children soon, so this news, if it's to be believed, the couple couldn't be happier about this time in their life. It was previously reported that the couple had met up with a set of fertility doctors months prior to their wedding so that Meghan can have a smooth pregnancy.
Meghan, who turns 37 in August this year, along with Prince Harry, apparently wanted to make sure that her age would not be a huge factor when it comes to conceiving a baby. According to an insider, “Harry and Meghan want to get pregnant as quickly as possible after their wedding." At the time it was reported that the couple had been meeting up with all sorts of “nutritionists and doctors who specialize in giving clients diet, exercise and lifestyle programs” so as to figure out the best way of getting pregnant as soon as possible.
“They both know that as Meghan gets older, it can get increasingly harder to conceive and they are both keenly aware of her vulnerability to health complications and the chance of miscarriage the older she gets,” the insider added. “Being in optimum health increases any woman’s chances of conceiving, and someone in Meghan’s shape should especially have no problem in that area,” said the source, and later added, “The only issue is that she knows she is heading for the big 4-0, so knows the sooner she gets pregnant the better.”
Meanwhile, Prince Louis has his big day coming up too. As per an official statement by the palace, the 8-week-old son of Prince William and Kate Middleton, will be christened on Monday, July 9. It was revealed by the Kensington Palace through their official Twitter account on Wednesday. “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are pleased to announce that the christening of Prince Louis will take place on Monday 9th July at The Chapel Royal, St James’s Palace, London,”
