Is Meghan Markle expecting her second child? The world watched when Meghan Markle and Prince Harry tied the knot in May 2018. Just one year later, in May 2019, the royal couple welcomed their first child, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, who is seventh in line for the British throne.
Since she first began dating Harry, Markle has been put through the ringer, because being a royal is like taking the Hollywood rumor mill and putting it on steroids. Coverage of her every move is non-stop and will continue to be for the rest of her life.
And the latest nugget making the rounds is a bombshell, if true. Is Meghan Markle pregnant again?
On November 7th, Markle and Harry visited a community center in Westminster Abbey in a surprise visit to military spouses and children, in honor of Remembrance Day. Harry was in the Army for 10 years, going on two tours of Afghanistan and becoming a Captain. Since leaving, he’s worked to support fellow service men and women.
The visit provided some feel-good moments, including Markle being embraced by children, giving flowers to kids, chatting with parents, and even high-fiving a toddler. Afterwards, a woman named Susie Stringfellow spoke about the visit, adding that she and Harry had spoken about parenting and family.
She said, “Having our babies so close in age with their baby, I think they were keen to sort of chat to other parents of a similar age. Harry was really quite interested in how things were with second children as well because we’ve got older children and so we were trying to encourage him as well to have a second baby.”
Needless to say, fans are going crazy, wondering if Harry’s inquiries were due to a future child in the works.
But what really sparked the rumor mill was a photo of Markle putting her hand on her belly. Even the dress she wore seemed to cover up her stomach!
And it’s not the first time Harry has been open about having a family with his wife. While interviewing Jane Goodall, he revealed that he wants at least two children with Markle.
“I think, weirdly, because of the people that I’ve met and the places that I’ve been fortunate enough to go to, I’ve always had a connection and a love for nature. I view it differently now, without question. But I’ve always wanted to try and ensure that, even before having a child and hoping to have children,” he said, before Goodall added, “Not too many!” Harry then responded, “Two maximum!”
Comedian and writer Gary Janetti even got in on the action, calling attention to her hand placement.
But with such a busy schedule, if Markle is, in fact, pregnant, it’s going to be difficult to hide the pregnancy much longer. A royal source said, “The Duke and Duchess have a full schedule of engagements and commitments until mid-November, after which they will be taking some much needed family time.”
Six weeks, to be exact, during which time they are apparently planning to visit Markle’s birthplace in the United States. Could the couple want to have their child in the States instead of abroad?
For now, the couple is enjoying parenthood with their pride and joy. And it appears that it will be staying that way for the time being. A palace source has recently disclosed that Markle is not pregnant. It appears that the royal couple are choosing to focus on their little family of three for now, but only time will tell.
