Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are reportedly expecting twins just one month after their May 19 wedding.
According to Hollywood Life and OK! magazine, the royal couple conceived twins during their honeymoon in East Africa. After they found out that they were going to be expecting, the couple were apparently over the moon with excitement. The first people they told about their secret were Prince William and Kate Middleton. Prince Harry then told his dad, Prince Charles, his stepmother, Camilla, and finally Queen Elizabeth II.
A source said, “They were so supportive. [Harry and Meghan] are just so over the moon with happiness! They didn’t expect it to happen so soon, and they were all the more giddy to learn they were having two — one a boy, the other a girl.”
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have made no secret of their love for each other over the years. Last week, while touring Chester with the Queen, Markle told fans and onlookers that Prince Harry is the ‘best husband ever’.
Prince Harry also made similar declarations of his feelings for Meghan. While giving their first interview as an engaged couple, Prince Harry said, “I fell in love with Meghan so incredibly quickly. It was a confirmation to me that all the stars were aligned.”
Fans took to social media with enthusiasm to share their thoughts on the couple’s news. Many also started speculating themselves, pointing out that Markle’s recent outfits have all been loose fitted.

I almost want to bet Meghan Markle is already pregnant or she's preparing to be. There are a lot of loose fitting dresses lately.

According to an insider, Harry is willing to raise the kids in America to ease the transition into royal life for Meghan. The source said, “Meghan has made countless sacrifices to adjust to royal life. He knows part of her heart will always be in California, and he wants to ensure that the woman of his dreams — and the mother of his children — is content.”
Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle have also taken to bonding over this new chapter in the latter’s life. Although Meghan is at the very early stages of her pregnancy right now, and clearly not showing, Kate is making sure to let her in on what she has learned about pregnancy along the way.
The source said, “Kate is sharing tips on everything from concealing a baby bump at royal functions to her favorite prenatal workouts. She’s had access to the very best health experts throughout her pregnancies, so she’s happy to let Meghan in on everything she knows.”
The pregnancy has not yet been confirmed by the Duke and Duchess or by the Palace.
