Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Are On the Same Page About Having Another Baby

Baby Archie Harrison is just a couple months old and already royal fans are eager to know when Prince Harry and Meghan Markle plan to have another. The couple has made no secret of their desire to have more kids, and people are assuming they won’t wait long to get pregnant again. It certainly helps that Meghan Markle had a mostly drama-free pregnancy and delivery.

Is this couple already planning to add baby number 2 to the mix? If they are, they’d most likely be keeping that detail private. But the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are clearly aligned on what they want based on comments they’ve made. Insider sources promise that they’re both on board for having another baby in the near future.

Both Prince Harry and Meghan Markle want more children

Royal expert Kate Nicholl spoke with ET and confirmed that the couple is enjoying their roles as parents. “People are already speculating about baby number two for the Sussexes,” Nicholl told ET. “I think it’s probably a little premature to be speaking about a second baby. That said, sources close to the couple told me that they really would love to have a big family. They are, by all accounts, amazing parents. They are loving parenthood.”

It’s something they’re looking at for down the road.

“They absolutely want siblings for Archie, so possibly we will have a pregnancy announcement — a second pregnancy announcement for Meghan and Harry sometime next year — but, for the moment, the focus is obviously on Archie,” she explained.

Parenthood has changed Prince Harry and Meghan Markle for the better

It’s obvious from the beaming smile on Prince Harry’s face — he’s adoring his new role as a father. Nicholl wholeheartedly agrees that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be glad to expand their family based on their positive experiences so far.

“Their life has changed enormously and that was one of the things the sources I spoke to …. told me — that this really has been a life-transforming event,” she says. “Yes, they’re royals, yes, they probably have more help than the rest of us, but this really has turned their world upside down for the better. So, I think at the moment, they’re focusing on Archie, but I know it’s their plan to have more than one child,” she said.

When will Meghan Markle get pregnant again?

While there’s no rule about when the Duchess of Sussex can get pregnant again, it’s logical to assume that she’ll wait at least a few months before considering the possibility of a second baby. Her body needs time to heal after birth, both physically and emotionally.

Plus, if she’s breastfeeding Archie (which we don’t know for sure), there’s a chance she won’t be able to get pregnant again until her monthly cycle returns. This can take months or even up to a year or more for women who are exclusively breastfeeding. It’s nature’s way of providing spacing between children.

No matter when the Duke and Duchess of Sussex decide to have another child, we’ll be eagerly awaiting the joyful news!
