When you look at the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, you may think, 'Oh my, these two will have beautiful kids'. But are Harry and Meghan planning to become parents soon? They may be.

Now that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle finally tied the knot, many royal watchers are wondering when to expect the next royal baby. The couple first met almost two years ago, so they have had plenty of time to discuss their plans for the future. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex may be in no rush to welcome a little one, but they have implied in some of their interviews that we may soon expect an addition to the royal family.

One recent hint came in March 2018 when the couple went to Northern Ireland. There, they met the pair who founded Shnuggle, which is a baby product company. Meghan took a look at some of their products and said:

I am sure at one point we will need the whole thing.

In November 2017, Harry and Meghan did an interview with BBC shortly after they announced their engagement. When asked about plans to have kids, Harry responded with the following:

Of course. You know, one step at a time. Hopefully, we’ll start a family in the near future.

Both Meghan and Harry had spoken about plans to have children before they met. In an interview with Lifestyle Magazine in 2015, Meghan said she was satisfied with her career and she wanted to have a family when the right time comes:

My life is more amazing than I ever thought it could be. I dreamt of becoming a successful working actress, which I can now very thankfully tick off the list. And 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.

In May 2015, about one year before Prince Harry met his future wife, he said in an interview with Sky News:

Of course, I would love to have kids right now, but there is a process that one has to go through.

It would be great to have someone else next to me, but the time will come. Whatever happens, happens.

Well, the whole world’s eyes are on them now, and the couple let on about their desire to have kids. Now, it’s only a question of when. We will be waiting impatiently for the happy news!
