Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's body language sure says a lot about their feelings for each other. And almost as soon as they stepped out to the world as a couple, fans were swooning over the way they seemed to be so affectionate with one another. They held hands, shared kisses and looked at each other with adoration in their eyes.

In fact, body language expert, Patti Wood, once told Refinery29 that the way these two connected in public proved that their love was "so real" which bode well for marital satisfaction.

When the world learned that the couple was about to welcome their first child, people wondered if this would change their connection. True, a couple's dynamic does change when a baby comes into the picture so the concerns are valid. In fact, some people outrightly expressed the belief that the royal couple would be less into each other when they became parents.

Relationship expert Kate Mansfield once shared her views with Express that Harry might feel "pushed aside" by Meghan once the baby arrived which could trigger him considering he lost his mother at a young age.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex did welcome their first child in May 2018. And while they seemed like a happy family unit, we were curious to see if their couple relationship was adversely affected.

Even if having a baby changes things up a bit, it's possible that two people welcoming a child can make for a stronger relationship. In fact, some people have been known to fall even more deeply in love with their partners by watching the way they interact with their child.

Body language expert, Judi James, shared her findings with Mirror and revealed why she believed having a child actually strengthened, rather than weakened Harry and Meghan's relationship.

James considered images of the couple looking adoringly at each other especially the loving look the Duchess gave her husband in pictures taken weeks after Archie was born.

Other gestures like their physical closeness to one another and the excited smiles they have on their faces prove their strong connection too, James noted.

Coping with some challenges

Relationship expert Lucy Beresford also shared her opinion about the Sussexes and revealed that they might face some particular challenges due to their roles as public figures. She noted that since being new parents can be a struggle sometimes, the couple had the added pressure of keeping up that cheerful and happy appearance in public. And things can get dicey.

Now, with a baby, they will return home where they would have had a chance to air these grievances with one another, but now they have a newborn baby to deal with and look after.

She, however, advised that the best way for them to get through this would be to make time for each other.

Other ways to connect to your partner after having kids include:

  1. Have regular check-ins: Talk to each other about how you're both feelings and be completely honest with one another.
  2. Be kind to yourself: Parenthood isn't about being perfect. Don't hold yourself or your partner to unreachable standards.
  3. Show gratitude: You and your partner have now added parenting duties to your regular obligation to each other. This can be a lot of pressure but appreciating even the smallest gestures can be encouraging.
