How Are Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Getting Ready for Parenthood?

Welcoming a first child is an exciting time, whether you’re royal or not! Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are beyond excited for the upcoming arrival of their first baby this spring. Though, being a first-time parent can also be a little overwhelming.

It’s completely natural to want to make sure you know all about babies well in advance. Everyone has their own way of getting ready, whether it be taking classes, or talking to friends and family members. So, how have Meghan and Harry been preparing for the exciting journey of parenthood?

They are building an amazing nursery

Meghan and Harry’s baby will be sleeping in one unbelievable nursery! The baby’s bedroom in their new home at Frogmore Cottage will be decorated in a modern style, with shades of white and grey. The couple is said to be using eco-friendly vegan paint, as well as installing security windows, and a state of the art baby monitor so they can see and hear the new baby no matter what room they are in.

Harry and Meghan interact with children whenever possible

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are sure to be amazing parents, as they simply adore kids! On their recent trip to Morocco, two young children waited for hours to get a glimpse of Harry and Meghan, and the couple made their entire day by getting down to their level, shaking their hands, and engaging in conversation.

Known as a big kid himself, Harry is also especially drawn to babies. Whenever he sees one in a crowd, he heads right over, and the extremely young royal fans take to him immediately! However, he had a recent, although rather humorous, incident at the Institute of Translational Medicine, where he adorably tickled a baby and caused tears. Well, it happens!

The Duke and Duchess are looking for a nanny

When we say they are looking for a nanny to care for their baby, we mean they are doing an extensive search to find only the best, most dedicated nanny that they can. The chosen person must be excellent with babies, have plenty of experience, and most likely have a background in things such as CPR and how to handle emergency situations. Although Meghan and Harry plan to be very hands-on parents, they will need some help for those times when they just can’t be there themselves.

They are seeking advice

What are older brothers for? Harry’s brother, Prince William, has plenty of experience with children, given that he has three of them himself! He and Kate have always been very involved in all aspects of their children’s’ upbringing, so William is the perfect person for Harry to go to for advice. We are sure that Kate Middleton is willing to share tips and secrets as well, as she is an excellent mom to her children, and is probably more than happy to help Meghan and Harry as they prepare for the beginning stages of parenthood.

What else are Meghan and Harry doing?

Meghan is likely talking a lot to her mother, Doria Ragland, who is rumored to be planning to spend a lot of time in England after the baby’s birth. Chances are, the Duchess is also reading plenty of parenting books, and seeking advice from friends who already have children. It is fortunate that the royal couple has an excellent and dedicated support system in place as they enter this wonderful new stage of their lives. No matter what, everyone is sure that Meghan and Harry will be the best parents possible!
