Is Meghan Markle Already Pregnant Again? Some Royal Fans Think So

Meghan Markle gave birth to her first child, Archie, back in May. It was a joyous occasion for royal fans who had been dying to see Meghan Markle and Prince Harry grow their family.

However, some hopeful royal fans believe we could soon be celebrating again, because they think (or want to believe) Markle might be pregnant just three months after having Archie. So why do people think that and could it be true? Here’s what we know.

Did Meghan Markle quietly reveal she’s pregnant?

Last weekend, Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, and their son were spotted having lunch at The Rose & Crown, a pub not too far away from their home at Frogmore Cottage.

According to a source who spoke to The Sun, the family had a very relaxing time. They were not recognized by the other patrons and the service staff treated them quite normally. “They were on a table with, I presume, a private secretary,” the witness reported. “Meghan was cradling Archie most of the time. The little lad was as good as gold, I didn’t hear him cry once while he was there.”

The source also noted that Prince Harry drank “a couple of pints of beer” while Meghan Markle avoided alcohol and only drank water.

Is this a sign Meghan Markle is pregnant?

While it’s definitely exciting to hear that the Duchess of Sussex would have another baby, the truth is that it’s quite unlikely that she is pregnant at the moment.

For one thing, it’s too soon since she just gave birth in May, and Markle has to keep her health in mind considering her age. Markle is what the medical community calls a “geriatric mother” because she is over 35 years old. Women in this age group are advised to wait at least a year before conceiving again. Otherwise, they could be at risk for maternal mortality. It’s likely Markle is aware of this and would not jeopardize her health for another baby anytime soon.

It’s also important to note royal women get pregnancy rumors all the time. Kate Middleton has been subjected to this on so many occasions in one year that it’s hard to even keep count. Anytime Middleton touches her stomach or says anything baby-related, there are automatically pregnancy rumors. Thus, it’s easy to see how anything Markle does could also get blown out of proportion.

Moreover, Markle is known to be a very healthy person. She eats plant-based meals often and exercises regularly. As such, it is not impossible to imagine that she would frequently choose to drink water instead of alcohol even when she is not pregnant.

Do Meghan Markle and Prince Harry want more children?

Even if Markle is not pregnant right now, there is still a chance that we could see baby number 2 in the future.

Royal expert Katie Nicholl shared: “Sources close to the couple told me that they really would love to have a big family. They absolutely want siblings for Archie, so possibly we will have a pregnancy announcement for Meghan and Harry sometime next year.”

However, while some insiders say the couple wants more than two children, Prince Harry himself recently said that he really only wants two. During a conversation with Jane Goodall, the pair discussed the topic of having less kids to try and save the planet. The Duke of Sussex, then, shared that he and his wife just want “two, maximum.”

In any case, it’s still too soon to tell just exactly how many children Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will end up having. Not to mention, many onlookers believe that adoption could be on their table. At this point, only time will tell what the Sussex family will look like in the future.
