Margaret Minnicks has been an online writer for many years. She writes articles about the royals, especially Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.


Kensington Palace announced back in October 2018 that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex would become parents in the Spring of 2019. That means in just a few months, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will welcome their first child in late April or early May.

Most expecting parents look forward to welcoming their children into the world. The royal couple is no exception. Both Prince Harry and Meghan are especially excited to start a family with their first baby. While their baby will not come with an instruction manual, there is enough evidence to show that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will make very good parents.

So, what are some of the actions of Prince Harry and Meghan to indicate they will be good parents? They are often seen in photos showing love and affections to other people's children. So, it stands to reasons that they will treat their own baby with lots of love and care.

They Gravitate Toward Children

There are lots of photos showing how the Duke and Duchess of Sussex tend to gravitate toward children. It works both ways. Children naturally gravitate toward them as well.

They take time to greet their little fans when they are out and about. They often spend a considerable amount of time with the kids just as they do with adults. They are patient and answer the children's questions.

They Get Down to Eye-Level with Kids

Prince Harry and Meghan aren't too proud to get down to the children's eye-level to interact with them. Princess Diana used to do the same thing. Prince William and Kate Middleton also bend down to the eye-level of the kids they meet.

Bending or stooping down to a kid's' eye-level not only shows respect, but it also helps with speaking, listening, and understanding.

They Are Ready to Become Parents

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Love Children

Parenting expert Anna Williamson said she has seen how Harry and Meghan interact with other people's children. This is a big clue to how they will care for their own baby when the child is born.

The parenting expert said that if they treat other children with love, care, and respect, they will be even more attentive to their own flesh and blood. Williamson concludes that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are people persons who make adults and kids feel valued.

They Touch and Give Hugs

Both of the expecting parents don't mind touching and giving big hugs to the little ones they meet no matter where they are. They touch and hug kids whether they are on tour or on a local assignment. They are getting a lot of practice for their own baby.

Even before Prince Harry got married, he was photographed holding babies in his lap and playing with older children. It is evident he genuinely cares for kids and he doesn't pretend just for a photo opt.

Planning for First Child

While there are rules that all royals are expected to follow, the Duke and Duchess will go along with most of them, but they have been known to do some things their own way within reasons.

The 37-year-old mother to be hasn't slowed down with her royal duties. It looks as though she might work up to her due date. That way her maternity leave will start after her she gives birth.

The 34-year-old father will probably take paternity leave for a short period of time. Meghan's leave could last as long as a year if she needs it.

At one time, there were reports that the newest royal baby would not be born at the Lindo Wing of St. Mary's Hospital in London. The reports have been going back and forth about where the baby will be born. The public will find out when it happens.

Raising Their Child

During Prince Harry and Meghan's engagement interview in November 2017, they both said they wanted to start a family right away. They got married on May 19, 2018. Kensington Palace announced Meghan's pregnancy just five months later. Baby Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor was born on May 6, 2019, less than a year after his parents' wedding.

The couple has indicated that they want to raise their child as normal as possible. They did not want their baby to have a royal title.

The Duke and Duchess moved into their new residence at Frogmore Cottage which is out of the public eye.
