Meghan Markle pregnant with second child rumors began circulating at a royal outing before Remembrance Day. How did the rumors originate and how true are they? Experts however, are quick to say it's not likely to happen soon because it will be dangerous for the Duchess.
Prince Harry Asks Around
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex spent time with military families at the community center in Windsor. There, they chatted about how lucky Prince Harry was that he could be with his family on Christmas.
Prince Harry exclaimed how difficult it must be for the patriarch of the household to be away on such a holiday. Harry spent Christmas in the military before when he was destined to Afghanistan. He missed Sandringham Christmas then, but that was way before he got married and had a child of his own.
At the coffee meet-up, seasoned moms gave Meghan support as well as advice. The Sussex Royals brought Baby Archie with them who played with the children there.
One of the military moms present then was Susie Stringfellow. She revealed how Prince Harry was particularly keen on parenting second children. Strongfellow added that other military parents encouraged the Sussexes to have a second baby.
Meghan Markle 'Gives Clues'
Duchess Meghan received a lot of praises for wearing her maternity clothes post-pregnancy. Royal fans could not help but wonder if Markle was getting comfy with a growing belly.
Further, when Adelaide Cottage was renovated, the Sussexes' Windsor home reportedly had two nurseries. Could these be clues that Markle always wanted Baby No. 2? But how soon?
Not Too Soon At All!
Pregnancy expert Katharine Graves revealed that Markle could be "40 or older" when she announces her second pregnancy. She cited that Markle, who gave birth at 37 to her first child, still needs time to recover.
The Duchess of Sussex is not one to put her health at risk, contemplates Graves. As Meghan is well aware of health and fitness, she is more likely to space her pregnancies long enough.
Though there is a pressure to get pregnant before 40, Graves stated that many women do give birth in their 40s, particularly in the first half. The Duchess is said to have "plenty of time before she needs to think about having a second baby."
Besides, it could be riskier for Meg to get pregnant as early as now. Her son Archie is still 6 months old. Medical experts reveal that pregnancy complications can be reduced by waiting at least 18 to 24 months before planning your next pregnancy.
Women older than 35 years old may attempt to get pregnant again after at least 12 months. So for the sake of Meg's health, let's not wish she gets pregnant too soon.
