[Blind Gossip] They are one of the most famous couples in the world.
Your friends at Blind Gossip originally told you their exact baby-making schedule before their wedding even took place.
We were right on the money with their first child.
Now we are going to tell you about a little change of plan for the second child!
She was originally going to take a full year between. The doctors recommended two. However, she does not want to wait that long. She is in very good health, so there is absolutely no cause for concern.
While there was no mention of her husband being on board with this accelerated timeline, we will assume that he agrees that they should try for that second child sooner rather than later.
So while the doctors wanted her to wait two years… and the couple was going to wait one year… that plan is being thrown out the window… and we may see another pregnancy as fast as her body can manage one!
Her body, her choice. At least another pregnancy will help keep her in the headlines!

[Optional] Why do you think she wants to speed up the plan?
Couple: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle
Your friends at Blind Gossip told you about Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s baby-making schedule even before their glamorous wedding.
In an earlier blind item, we told you that the couple was aiming to get pregnant just a few months after marrying. (see Fast Baby).
She has proposed a schedule and he has already agreed to it. Wedding, three to six months settling in, pregnant, first baby, one year break, pregnant, second baby.
So, depending on how long it takes her to get pregnant, two babies in the first three to four years of marriage.
Sure enough, the couple announced that they were pregnant just five months after their wedding!
Their first child, a healthy baby boy named Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, was born in May 2019.
After the birth of Archie, many people speculated that – for various reasons – Meghan would not have a second baby.
We knew that wasn’t true.
After Archie was born, we told you that Harry and Meghan not only wanted a second baby… but decided that they didn’t need to wait!
Meghan was nearing 40, in good health, and ready to get pregnant again as soon as her body was able.
Now we have learned that Meghan Markle did indeed get pregnant again in the year after Archie’s birth!
Sadly, she lost the baby in July 2020.
From the BBC:
Meghan: Duchess of Sussex tells of miscarriage ‘pain and grief’
The Duchess of Sussex has revealed she had a miscarriage in July, writing in an article of feeling “an almost unbearable grief”.
“I knew, as I clutched my firstborn child, that I was losing my second,” Meghan said in a piece for the New York Times.
She went on to describe how she watched “my husband’s heart break as he tried to hold the shattered pieces of mine”.
Meghan wrote that “loss and pain have plagued every one of us in 2020”.
The 39-year-old shared her experience to urge people to “commit to asking others, ‘are you OK?'” over the Thanksgiving holiday in the US.
That last comment harkens back to that famous interview in South Africa in September of 2019.
Meghan Markle teared up as she commented on her life in the public eye.
The New York Post had this comment:
Save the tears, Meghan Markle
It’s against the wretched backdrop of this war-torn continent that Markle tells sympathetic British interviewer Tom Bradby that she’s “existing, not living.” She thanks him for asking how she is, because “not many people have asked if I’m OK.”
Few viewers would fail to be moved by Meghan’s struggles as a new mom in the spotlight, but did the Sussexes ever stop and think that their tour might not be the right time or place to whine about their plight?
Something’s off when you’re bemoaning your lot as a VIP while championing worthy causes such as the rights of poverty-stricken women and children.
At the time, there was a lot of eye-rolling and criticism over what were perceived to be selfish comments by Meghan.
A year later, after a personal tragedy, she has taken that question – “Are you okay?”- and made it work to her advantage as a sign of compassion.
Back to the BBC article.
A source close to the duchess confirmed to the BBC that the duchess is currently in good health and the couple wanted to talk about what happened in July, having come to appreciate how common miscarriage is.
A Buckingham Palace spokesman said: “It’s a deeply personal matter we would not comment on.”
Here is a photo of Meghan visiting Buckingham Palace as a teen.
That refusal to comment is completely in keeping with Buckingham Palace protocol.
The duchess and Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex, moved to California to live away from the media spotlight, after stepping back as senior royals in January.
After “Megxit,” the couple moved to Canada and then California. They stayed at Tyler Perry’s house and did some house hunting before finally investing in some real estate of their own.
Here is their new $15 million home in Montecito. Note the little child’s playground on the left.
Their first child, Archie, was born on 6 May 2019.
The duchess began her article by describing a “sharp cramp” she felt while looking after Archie.
“I dropped to the floor with him in my arms, humming a lullaby to keep us both calm, the cheerful tune a stark contrast to my sense that something was not right,” she wrote.
“Hours later, I lay in a hospital bed, holding my husband’s hand. I felt the clamminess of his palm and kissed his knuckles, wet from both our tears.
“Staring at the cold white walls, my eyes glazed over. I tried to imagine how we’d heal.”
Losing a baby is heartbreaking.
We extend our sincere condolences to Harry and Meghan and hope that they fully recover from this sad event.
