Since Harry and Meghan married, fans have been wondering whether or not they plan to start a family.
And while we are desperately waiting for the news, there might be a practical reason why Meghan isn’t rushing into pregnancy.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are due to embark on their first royal in October.
Meghan will accompany Harry to the Invictus Games in Sydney. The couple will also visit Australia, Fiji, the Kingdom of Tonga, and New Zealand. Therefore, they will have a very hectic schedule through the end of the year.
So, they may delay starting a family until after these major travels are over.
During the first 12 weeks of pregnancy, women normally have morning sickness. But some, like the Duchess of Cambridge, are suffering from a severe form. Some may also suffer from extreme tiredness.
So, it may be difficult for Meghan if she was in the early stages of pregnancy during the couple’s first tour.
William and Kate also reportedly waited to have a baby. They were the first future monarchs in 200 years not to conceive in their first year of marriage. Duchess Kate announced that she was pregnant with George 19 months after they married.
And the Duchess of Cambridge had to cancel many royal engagements at short notice due to extreme morning sickness. She was hospitalised in 2012 at 12 weeks pregnant.
Royal author Gill Knappett said: “It is thought that William and Catherine, as newlyweds, may have delayed staring a family so that they could participate fully in the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations in 2012.
“Part of William and Catherine’s commitment to the Queen in her Diamond Jubilee year involved the young couple touring Asia on behalf of Her Majesty in September 2012.”
