During the couple’s official engagement interview Prince Harry said that he and Meghan would like children and that it would happen in the near future.
He said: ‘One step at a time. We’ll start a family in the near future.’
The couple have had a lot of interaction with children during their relationship and the Duke of Sussex has proven he is more than ready to become a dad.
Prince Harry is uncle to his brother’s three children and both Harry and Meghan Markle clearly have a close bond with Prince George and Princes Charlotte who had special roles at their wedding.
The pair also have several godchildren and appear to be naturals whenever they come across children and babies at their official meet-and-greet appearances.
Prince Harry has always stressed that if and when he has children he wants to give them the opportunity to lead as normal life as possible and Meghan has put some thought into what she wants for her children too.
In an interview with Hello! Canada back in 2015, the former actress revealed that she has a sentimental gift to give her future daughter if and when the time comes.
The Duchess of Sussex has a special timepiece, a Cartier Tank Française to be exact, which she had engraved ready to give to her future daughter. The watch ranges in price from £2,780 and up to over £6000 and more.
Meghan explained: ‘When I found out Suits had been picked up for our third season – which, at the time, felt like such a milestone – I totally splurged and bought the two-tone version [of the watch], I had it engraved on the back, “To M.M. From M.M.” And I plan to give it to my daughter one day. That’s what makes pieces special, the connection you have to them.’
