First comes love, then comes marriage, but there are a couple of keen royal watchers who think Harry and Meghan are already on their way to that baby carriage.
The new Duke and Duchess of Sussex have made no secret of their desire to start a family together, and plainly stated in their televised engagement interview that they hoped to have children “soon”.
But one significant look during their wedding ceremony has seen baby speculation soar.
Shortly after the bride arrived at the altar, the officiant started talking about marriage and how “it’s given as the foundation of family life, in which children are born and nurtured..”
It was at that very moment that Harry was seen turning to Meghan with a sly smirk – a gesture which is being interpreted by some as a sign of things to come.
Just so everyone know, Meghan Markle, The Duchess of Sussex, is already pregnant. I’m calling it now. Every time the arch bishop talked about children, Prince Harry would smile at her.

Meghan Markle is for sure PREGNANT!
Remember this tweet when they announce they're expecting a kid.

Of course, it’s all empty speculation, and a sign of the kind of rumours that are to come until Harry and Meghan actually do announce a pregnancy.
