Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have a 'game plan' to make sure their child has a 'normal upbringing'
Royal correspondent Omid Scobie said that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be 'changing the royal parenting rules' when they have their first child in spring 2019
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are going to raise their kid in the most normal way possible, which includes making their child do household chores and riding the tube, according to a new report. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex apparently have a 'set game plan' when it comes to how they want to bring up their children to make sure their kids have a 'normal upbringing.'
Meghan, who is currently expecting her first baby with Prince Harry and is due to deliver in spring 2019, wants to reportedly "bring up children who know the values of normal things in life."
The Duchess of Sussex is quite keen on ensuring that her children are not spoiled, and she will reportedly even "take her kids on the subway" if required, in order to teach them the everyday struggles of life. As previously reported, the Duke and Duchess' children will not bear a 'Prince' or 'Princess' title, unlike their cousins Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.
Royal correspondent Omid Scobie recently spoke to Us Weekly and said that Prince Harry and Meghan will be "changing the royal parenting rules" and have "set a game plan" for how they want to raise their children. He said, "Meghan will take her kids on a subway. They’ll have chores, and jobs one day. They won’t be spoiled."
It was previously said that Harry and Meghan took the joint decision of not having titles for their children in order to ensure that the kids are able to live a normal and drama-free upbringing.
According to reports, if Meghan and Harry's newborn is a boy, he will quite likely become the Earl of Dumbarton, a subsidiary title given to Prince Harry on the day of his wedding, and in case it is a baby girl, she will most likely have the title of Lady Mountbatten-Windsor. And because Harry is not directly in succession to the British throne, it is quite likely that his children will not be required to become full-time royals when they grow up.
Meghan and Harry seem to be following in the footsteps of Princess Anne, who is famously known for turning down the offer of giving her children any royal roles in a break from tradition. Her children Zara Tindall, formerly Zara Phillips, and Peter Phillips do not carry a royal title, unlike their cousins Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice.
Prince Harry and Meghan's decision to raise their children in a normal and unconventional way comes after it was reported that the Duchess of Sussex is planning to shift her mother, Doria Ragland, permanently in the UK ahead of the royal baby's birth in order to be closer to her grandchild. Before Meghan's pregnancy was announced, Doria was said to have been taking baby-care classes near her home.
