Meghan Markle Just Hinted at Plans to Have Kids With Prince Harry
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are getting ready for their big wedding in May—but speculation is already in the air about their plans to have children. On Friday, Harry and Meghan arrived in Belfast, Northern Ireland for a previously unannounced trip. While there, they visited Catalyst Inc., where they greeted local entrepreneurs, and Meghan hinted at her possible future as a parent.
According to two royal correspondents’ tweets, Meghan and Harry were meeting a couple who make baby products, and quipped, “I’m sure at some point we’ll need the whole thing.”

People reports that the company is called Shnuggle, and displayed products like a cleaning mat, a Moses basket, and a baby bath. “They seemed very engaged with the products. Harry was particularly interested in the bath,” cofounder Sinead Murphy told reporters. “I wonder if he has witnessed bath time with his nephew or niece.”

In an interview with the BBC after they announced their engagement, Harry said they eventually did want to start a family, just not immediately. "Not yet, no, but I think eventually, one step at a time, and we'll start a family in the near future,” Harry said.
Markle has also said in a 2016 interview that motherhood was a goal of hers. "I also dream to have a family. It's all about balance, and I have so much happiness in my career and am fortunate to travel the world and see so many amazing things," she said, "it will also be nice to be anchored to something grounded and in the same place. Raising a family will be a wonderful part of that."
