Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s relationship
Although many — including Prince William — mark Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s relationship as a “whirlwind,” the two have proven (at least publicly) that they are a great couple with incredible support for each other. But, after just one year of marriage, having a baby could shake things up for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
Chances are, having a baby won’t strain Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s relationship. But, they might hit a few bumps in the road — especially as the baby grows and they were out their parenting style. Based on their personalities and backgrounds, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex might handle certain situations such as discipline and food differently.
Here’s what Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s parenting partnership might look like, including some areas that might require extra teamwork on their part.
Discipline might be a hard one for Meghan Markle and Prince Harry to see eye-to-eye. The Duke of Sussex is a bit of a softy and while we are certain he will agree with his wife, he might struggle to discipline their children. This might not put a strain on their relationship, but it might be something he and Meghan Markle discuss and might not always agree with.
It’s no secret that Meghan Markle is a healthy eater. Rumor has it, she has even helped Prince Harry clean up his diet since moving in together. But while the Duchess of Sussex might encourage her children to eat their veggies and opt for more healthy and nutritious snacks, Prince Harry might be the one to sneak a little fast food here and there.
According to reports, Prince Harry and Prince William loved McDonald’s growing up and Princess Diana would treat them to the fast food chain every once in a while.
As a real-life prince, manners are engrained in Prince Harry and they likely matter to Meghan Markle, too. In addition to teaching their children to curtsy and bow, say please and thank you, and all the other musts for young royals (and children in general), they will also teach their children to pick up after themselves, play nicely with each other, and so on.
As a parental unit, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will likely agree on everything when it comes to manners. However, they might teach their children in different ways and might not always agree with the other’s methods.
Following the rules of the monarchy is a must in the royal family. However, some believe the Duke and Duchess will take a page out of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s parenting book and ban them at home. Doing so ensures the children grow up in a more normal environment.
However, that doesn’t mean they won’t teach their children certain royal rules. Luckily, Prince Harry is a bit of a rebel and not a fan of the stuffiness of royal life. Because of that, he probably won’t get too caught up in forcing his children to learn and follow every single royal rule — which is a plus for Meghan who is still getting used to the royal rulebook herself.
