They’ve been married just over a month, but already, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are being plagued by royal baby rumours.

According to numerous sources, the 36-year-old Duchess of Sussex is already pregnant with twins and they’re both said to be over the moon at the news.

A royal cameraman spilled the beans to New Idea, claiming that Meghan Markle’s position on the royal balcony during the Trooping of the Colour ceremony was strategic, to hide her baby bump.

Indeed, the former actress was placed right at the back, near the doors of the balcony, with her sister-in-law Kate Middleton and her mother-in-law, the Duchess of Cornwall, standing in front of her.

However, that was thought to have to do with Prince Harry’s place in line for the throne, with Prince William and Prince Charles obviously being in front of him.

A senior aide also claims that the royal couple were the talk of Prince Harry’s cousin’s wedding two weeks ago, where Meghan wore a white and blue flowy dress.

“At Ascot last week and during Celia McCorquodale’s wedding, everyone was talking about the baby whispers – especially given that she was wearing such a loose, billowing dress and refused to drink any champagne on both occasions,” the source told New Idea.

The magazine claims that Meghan told the Queen the news when they were on the Royal Train from London to Chester at the beginning of the month and perhaps that’s why the Monarch had such a huge grin on her face.

Indeed, Woman’s Day have also reported that the newlyweds are celebrating the imminent arrival of the pitter-patter of tiny feet.

“They didn’t expect it to happen soon, and they were all the more giddy to learn they were having two,” a source told the magazine.

“They’d love nothing more than a boy and girl.”

Both Prince Harry and Meghan Markle haven’t been shy about their desire for wanting to start a family in the past.

During their official engagement interview with the BBC, the loved-up duo giggled as they spoke about babies.

“Of course, one step at a time and hopefully we will start a family in the near future,” Prince Harry said.
