What Parenting Advice Have Prince William and Kate Middleton Given Meghan Markle and Prince Harry?

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are expecting their first child next month, but they’re hardly the first members of the royal family to experience this kind of excitement. Harry’s older brother, Prince William, has already welcomed three children with his wife, Kate Middleton. And it comes as no surprise that both William and Kate have given some sound advice to Harry and Meghan.

Harry and Meghan announced their pregnancy last October

Harry and Meghan wasted no time starting a family. The royal couple began dating in 2016 and were engaged in 2017. After planning an elaborate royal wedding in just six short months, they were married in May 2018. The couple had expressed interest in starting a family soon after they wed. By October 2018, Kensington Palace had announced the couple was expecting their first child in spring 2019. Since then, details about the royal baby have been kept under wraps. Meghan’s exact due date is unknown, but she did give away that the baby would arrive in late April. The couple also hasn’t revealed the baby’s gender, and there has been plenty of speculation about what they’re having. Some are even convinced the two are having twins.

Despite rumors of a feud, Meghan and Kate appear to have a solid relationship

Next to her pregnancy, one of the biggest reasons Meghan has been in the news is because of her reported royal feud with the Duchess of Cambridge. Feud rumors started when Kate supposedly was in tears during Princess Charlotte’s dress fitting for the royal wedding. After that, the women were in the news nonstop about “hating” each other. But they squashed rumors when they looked happier than ever at Christmas morning mass back in 2018. Kate has also expressed joy at Meghan and Harry’s pregnancy, and Meghan has reportedly turned to Kate for fashion advice. But now, the couple is getting other advice from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

William and Kate have reportedly given Meghan and Harry some parenting advice

Meghan and Harry have likely welcomed any advice that Kate and William have to give. The couple supposedly learned some “tricks of the trade” from the parents of three, according to Bustle. Not only have William and Kate been through this before, but they’re also royals, which means they understand the amount of publicity that comes along with having a new baby as well. A source close to the royal couples have said Will and Kate have spoken to each of them about parenting tips for when their little one arrives. The actual pieces of advice haven’t been revealed, but it probably has something to do with handling children while balancing the royal life.

Although the advice will be very helpful to Meghan and Harry, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will probably raise their children a bit differently than Will and Kate have been. Meghan and Harry reportedly want to keep their kids out of the spotlight and might not even give them royal titles. Plus, they want to be extremely hands on — do their own family grocery shopping, drop the kids off at school, etc. Still, the two will probably take any parenting advice they can get.
