Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been married for nearly three months now. Surely that’s enough time to think about having a baby, right? After all, us common people need more Royals news now that the nuptials are over.
Okay, maybe that is moving a little too fast. Will and Kate had close to a year and a half of wedded bliss before becoming pregnant with little Prince George. However, it seems like Harry and Meghan do like to move quickly, so you never know.
Speculation is that the Duchess of Sussex might be expecting because Harry has just done something that many young couples do when they are planning for a future with children in it.
He is deciding to sell his car, which many Royal-watchers are taking as a sign he may be looking to purchase a more “family-friendly” model.
Can you picture Harry and Meghan driving around in a minivan or station wagon with a gaggle of kids in the back? One thing is for sure, the Royal couple won’t be spotted in Harry’s Audi RS6 Avant, which he had been previously seen driving with Meghan at Pippa Middleton’s wedding reception.
According to the BBC, the car was acquired by the Overton Prestige car dealership in Derbyshire and has been listed on Auto Trader for £71,900, which is over $92,000. Even Auto Trader’s editorial director, Eric Baker, publicly speculated on whether this meant the Prince was expecting.
Written on the listing is the following from Baker: “17 reg and low mileage, so it begs the questions why is the prince selling so soon? … Maybe he’s on the market for a bigger family car.” It’s unknown whether Baker was given any additional information to make such an intriguing question publicly, but it certainly has people talking!
After all, it was recently reported that William and Kate upgraded to a seven-seater Land Rover to accommodate their growing family. The car was first spotted in April when Will picked up Kate and new baby Louis from the hospital.
However, the car had actually been registered since March of 2017, but was barely used – which begs the question: did Will and Kate always plan to have a third child? It was not announced that Kate was once again expecting until the following September.
For the Royals, it’s more than just space for family members when picking out a new vehicle. There also needs to be room for support staff such as nannies and the security guards they may need to bring with them on a family outing.
Will hiring a nanny be next for Harry and Meghan? While there is no confirmed word on that at the moment, there are plenty of other reasons to suggest that the newlyweds might be looking to start their own family soon.
While Kate just had her third child at the age of 36, Meghan is already 37 and does not yet have any kids of her own. Getting pregnant becomes more difficult as women age and there can be many complications and higher likelihoods of high-risk pregnancies the older one gets.
If Meghan is not already with child, then it is possible it may be difficult to conceive and we may not see her give birth for the first time until she is 38. Fertility treatments may be required if the couple waits much longer.
It seems the Royal couple are very broody:
Another indicator that Meghan’s biological clock may be ticking is her seemingly increasing love of children. While the former Suits actor has always had time to engage with her youngest fans, on her recent trip to Ireland with her Prince, she seemed to be particularly taken with the wee ones.
Has Meghan got baby fever? Or perhaps just Royal enthusiasts and most media outlets do. Whether Meghan is pregnant or not, surely everyone will now be on “bump watch”.
But wouldn’t it be nice if the Royal couple did turn out to be expecting? It would certainly add some positivity in the otherwise depressing news cycle these days. We could all speculate about the couple’s choice of baby names and play a guessing game with the due date.
Not to mention, Meghan’s maternity fashion choices are sure to be absolutely fabulous! Plus, Meghan will have her sister-in-law to turn to for advice on how to handle her first pregnancy as a member of the Royal Family in the media spotlight.
Just think, years down the road we might see both Royal couples out together with their incredibly good-looking children playing together. Surely the cousins will be the best of friends. That’ll be one big lucky family, indeed. But until then, let the pregnancy rumors begin!
