Why Meghan Markle and Prince Harry WON’T have royal baby yet…
MEGHAN Markle and Prince Harry will wait to have their first royal baby because of their “busy schedules” – just like Kate and Prince William did when they had their first child, a royal expert has predicted.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have only be married for two months and royal fans are already eager to welcome a new member into the Royal Family.
But royal expert Richard Fitzwilliams told Express.co.uk that Meghan Markle and Harry are “not in a hurry” to welcome their first child just yet.
He said: “I don’t think what other royals have decided to do is a guide here.
“Their schedules will be so busy I think they’ll wait.”
eghan, 36, has recently returned from an overnight trip on the Royal Train to Cheshire with her husband’s grandmother, the Queen.
Asked about their plans for future children during their engagement interview back in November 2017, Prince Harry said: “One step at a time, and hopefully we’ll start a family in the near future”.
Betfair have 10/1 odds that the couple will announce they are expecting a baby before the end of this year, 4/9 they will have started their family before the end of next year and 13/8 royal baby news will be in 2020 or later.
The decision to wait would follow in the footsteps of Harry and Meghan’s new sister and brother-in-law Kate and Prince William, whose busy schedules got in the way of having their first royal baby.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are the first future monarchs in 200 years not to have conceived in the first year of their marriage.
Kate and William celebrated their first wedding anniversary in April 2013, after tying the knot for the Royal Wedding the previous year.
But it wasn’t until December 2013 – seven months later – that Kate and Prince William announced they were expecting their first royal baby much to the delight of royal fans across the world.
Although not laid down in law, throughout Britain’s history it has been expected that newlywed royals will have royal babies quickly to increase the number of heirs immediately.
But modernisers Kate and William re-wrote the sexual rulebook.
William’s commitment to his beloved grandmother, the Queen, and his duty as a future King of the UK, are said to have been the reason the couple started their family a little later.
Writing for Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, royal author Gill Knappett said: “It is thought that William and Catherine, as newly-weds, may have delayed staring a family so that they could participate fully in the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations in 2012.
“Part of William and Catherine’s commitment to the Queen in her Diamond Jubilee year involved the young couple touring Asia on behalf of Her Majesty in September 2012.
