First came love, then came marriage, now royal twins in a baby carriage?
Just one month after saying “I do,” rumors are spreading like wildfire that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are expecting not one baby, but two! So, is Meghan Markle pregnant with twins?
According to Hollywood Life, Prince Harry and Meghan found out they were expecting twins after returning from their honeymoon in East Africa after their nationally televised royal wedding back on May 19. “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 source said
Insiders reportedly told OK! Magazine that the first people to get the happy news were Prince William and Kate Middleton, who definitely know a thing or two about babies — Prince William and Kate recently welcomed their third child together, a baby boy named Prince Louis who joins older siblings Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
Friends of the couple reportedly had suspicions that the royal couple were trying for a baby. According to a source at Hollywood Life, ever since Kate gave birth to Prince Louis at the end of April, “Meghan has felt a tremendous responsibility to get pregnant,” an insider said. “She’s been panicked because she doesn’t want to disappoint Harry, the queen and the whole royal family.”
The source also claimed that “Meghan’s been nauseous,” and that she allegedly had secret dress fittings at the last minute before the royal wedding due to a possible pregnancy. “Her skin is glowing and pals have spotted Harry affectionately touching her belly,” the source added.
Meghan and Harry have been reportedly trying to have a baby since before the wedding but have kept their plans hidden due to the fact that it’s royal tradition to wait until tying the knot before having babies. The source revealed that Meghan felt her biological clock ticking, so they stopped using contraception and have been trying for a baby for several months.
However, despite all these ongoing rumors, no official announcement has been made from Kensington Palace, so it seems we’ll have to wait and see.

According to Gossip Cop, OK! Magazine was one of the first to report the non-confirmed pregnancy. OK! issued a magazine with the cover stating, “Meghan’s Twins Announcement: It’s A Boy & A Girl!” But neither the royal palace nor Harry or Meghan have made any kind of public announcement confirming a pregnancy.
This is certainly not the first time that tabloids have falsely documented the newly married lovebirds expecting children. Along with OK! Magazine, several other tabloids including Life and Style have spread false rumors of Meghan being pregnant. In fact, Life and Style claimed Meghan was pregnant all the way back in November 2017, writing that Meghan and Harry decided to fast-track their wedding after learning Meghan was expecting. The magazine’s source stated, “Meghan is pregnant. Harry and Meghan have been very open about how they are desperate to have kids as soon as possible. But they didn’t expect it to happen so soon!”
Whether Meghan is pregnant or not, it should be up to her and her husband when they want the public to know. Bringing a child into the world is an exciting and slightly terrifying journey that should be experienced by family without pressure from fans.
We are sure when the time comes, Prince and Meghan will make wonderful parents!
