Prince Harry And Duchess Meghan Markle Want ‘Kids Right Away’

On May 19th almost two billion people around the world turned in to watch Prince Harry And Duchess Meghan Markle’s wedding. It was an event of a lifetime, or for royals, the event of the week. Three days later, the couple attended their very first event as a married couple. After that they planned to escape to their honeymoon, a royal insider tells us. The palace kept the location top secret, but “one thing is for sure,” says the insider, “both want to be somewhere hot and sunny for two weeks. They want a good mix of sea and sun.”

Another thing both Meghan, 36, and Harry, 33, want is a family of their own. They have made some public remark about their plans for children. But sources close to the couple share that since the wedding, their desire for having children has grown. Now, “having children is definitely a priority,” says a source close to Duchess Meghan. “She and Harry want to start a family right away — and she’ll start trying as soon as she can.”

The royal insider seconds the duo’s enthusiasm. “They both can’t wait to start a family,” says the insider. But they also caution that timing is all-important with royals: “Harry and Meghan won’t rush into anything. They have a lot on their plate right now. But they both think that when the moment feels right, that will be the time to go for it. They’ll make fantastic parents.”

No matter when the Sussex baby arrives, the little one will definitely have a luxurious place to lay its royal head. Since her move from Canada to London, Duchess Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been living in Nottingham Cottage, a.k.a. “Nott Cott”. But this is just a temporary ‘love nest’, and they do have plans on upgrading. “It’s perfect for right now, but not for the future, especially when they start a family,” shares the insider. “I can’t see them there beyond next summer.”

The duo has already gone house-hunting, having signed a two-year lease on a 5.4 million dollar house within the Great Tew Estate in the Cotswolds, which is 90-minutes from London. “Renting in the Cotswolds was something they’d discussed before the engagement,” says the insider. “They loved the idea of having a bolt-hole to escape to when London gets too much.”


The home-which is also near David and Victoria Beckham’s country getaway-will also be the place where Meghan will be taking in all her guests. “She has so many friends overseas, it’ll be nice to properly host them where they can have privacy.”

And it would most definitely be the perfect place for raising a child. Despite her anxiousness to start championing the causes she supports, philanthropist Meghan is fine with raising a family at the same time also. I mean why not. Her mother, Doria Ragland, definitely supports that plan. As another confidant shares, “Doria is expecting to be a grandmother by this time next year. She’s very excited for Meghan to become a mother.”
