Baby not on board yet! Here’s why Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are not planing their first child anytime soon


Popular American TV show, Suits’ actress Meghan Markle tied the knot with Prince Harry of the Royal Family on May 19, 2018. Since officially becoming the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan have been open about their love for children and their plans to have a family of their own soon. While the rumours of Meghan’s pregnancy have been making rounds on the internet, there is a good reason that she might not have such plans anytime soon.

According to the leading UK daily, The Express, the Duchess will begin her first Royal Tour in October. She is required to accompany the Duke to the Invictus Games in Sydney from October 20th-27th. Post that, she will be heading to Australia, Fiji, the Kingdom of Tonga and New Zealand one after the other. Clearly, the royal couple is in for a hectic schedule ahead.

Even otherwise, according to the Royal traditions travelling abroad during their pregnancy is frowned up. Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, did make her Norway trip during her pregnancy, though. Royal ladies are expected to continue their commitments until the end of their pregnancy. They are also advised to stay close to home and it has everything to do with safety measurements.

Traditionally, Royal ladies are expected to give birth at home. However, this traditional saw a change when both Princess Anne and Princess Diana delivered their babies in the private wing of St. Mary’s hospital in Paddington, London. That means, when Meghan does plan to start her family she will have to say goodbye to her American family and friends for a long time.

The Royal traditions also forbid the custom of baby-shower. Meghan has to give a miss to one more American tradition. But we’re sure a lot more exciting might be lined up for the Duchess of Sussex.
