Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have only been married for three months and they’re already being asked about when they’re going to have kids.
As if marriage isn’t stressful enough without interfering family members wanting to know when you’re going to start your own little happy family, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex also have to fend off questions from the curious public.
To be fair, it’s something all newlyweds are asked and during a recent trip to Dublin, Prince Harry was asked when he and Meghan will start trying for kids.
A bit of a personal question if you ask me.
I know they’re public figures but it doesn’t mean you can go around asking them such intimate questions. I mean it’s not like you know them, right?
Luckily though, Harry’s used to people prying into his private life and has plenty of experience engaging with the public.
Furthermore, he and his older brother, Prince William, give the impression they enjoy a good laugh now and again, so when Harry was asked the question about kids in the future during a walkabout, he was well prepared.
According to the Mirror, he was approached by Elaine Adam-Stewart, who told him:
My husband also has red hair and he gave me five children – when are you and Meghan going to get going?
Speaking to PEOPLE, Elaine stated:
He laughed and said: ‘Five children? Too many’.
While it seems like an intrusive question it’s worth bearing in mind this year has been a good one for Royal babies.
On April 23, 2018, his brother, Prince William, and Kate Middleton, welcomed their third child, Prince Louis.
Last month, (June) Harry and William’s cousin, Zara Tindall, gave birth to her daughter, Lena Elizabeth.
Harry and Meghan have been open about their desire to start their own family.
In their joint interview with the BBC back in November, (after they announced their engagement), the subject of children inevitably came up.
Harry gave a measured answer in which he said:
You know, one step at a time. Hopefully we’ll start a family in the near future.
While he may not be a dad yet, at least Prince Harry can rest easy knowing he’s the ‘cool uncle’, particularly after the gift he got for Prince Louis’ christening.
The 11-week-old royal, who’s fifth in line to the throne, was baptised by the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend and Right Honourable Justin Welby, in the Chapel Royal at St James’ Palace on July 9.
And boy was he spoilt!
Not by the usual stuff, but with a first edition classic which came with a hefty price-tag! But I suppose when you’re born into the Royal Family the price of anything is irrelevant.
Prince Harry purchased an £8,000 first edition Winnie-the-Pooh book for young Louis, who, despite his Royal upbringing, cannot read yet.
The 1926 edition of the A.A. Milne book – one of an original 30,000 – is understood to have been bought from rare bookseller, Peter Harrington in Kensington, London.
A source is said to have told The Sun:
One of Harry’s happiest childhood memories was being read a bedtime story by his mother.
She loved all the classics and Harry had the brilliant idea of starting a little library of first editions.
Touching stuff, it truly is. A great gesture by a great lad.
