Confirmed: Meghan & Harry – Yes, it’s twins

The royal family are ecstatic over the impending arrival!

New Idea reported last week that newlyweds Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were set to welcome twins into the royal family, and now the exciting baby news has been confirmed.

Life & Style magazine has also learnt the royal couple are expecting a double arrival. 

A source told the publication, ‘Those close to Meghan are convinced she’s expecting twins.

‘It would be a dream come true for her and Harry. They’d love a boy and a girl!’

Last week, insiders also confirmed the exciting news to the National Enquirer.

‘It’s amazing…just incredible,’ a friend gushed to the Enquirer. ‘But they won’t announce for some time, or until the end of the first trimester, as is the American custom.’ 

Another insider reportedly told the US publication, ‘All the signs have been there for months now.

‘It’s wonderful news to be sure – but it shouldn’t come as a shock to anyone.’ 

The Enquirer’s shocking report claims 36-year-old Meghan secretly visited fertility doctors before her May 19 wedding to Prince Harry, who is sixth in line to the British throne. 

‘Harry and Meghan want to get pregnant as quickly as possible after their wedding,’ a friend tells.

‘They both know that as Meghan gets older, it can get increasingly harder to conceive – and they are both keenly aware of her vulnerability to health complications and the chance of miscarriage the older she gets.’

Along with fertility check-ups, Meghan also visited London-based nutritionist Melanie Brown at Kensington Palace, insiders told the Enquirer. 

Brown, a ‘specialist in fertility, IVF, and pregnancy,’ who works out of Duke Street, gave Meghan pointers on ‘pre-conceptual and pregnancy nutrition, including weight loss and gain, and immune issues.’ 

Harry, 33, also reportedly ‘stepped up’, meeting with nutritionist Gabriela Peacock on how he can drop weight and boost fertility. 

Meghan and Harry’s exciting baby news will mark the first time the monarchy has welcomed twins in almost 600 years. 

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s twin joy may have been the help of his genetics. 

Harry’s uncle, his mother Princess Diana’s brother, Charles Spencer, has identical twin daughters. The royal’s great-grandfather, Edmund Maurice Burke Roche, the fourth Baron Fermoy, was also an identical twin.

One insider told the Enquirer, ‘We all know where the genes for twins comes from – and it wasn’t the House of Windsor on Harry’s side! 

‘You might romantically say this is Diana’s last gift to her youngest son.’

A friend added to Life & Style, ‘She just can’t wait to be a mother.’ 

Harry is beyond eager to be a dad, added the source. 

The palace insider claims that Her Majesty is also one of the most excited. 

‘She’s been nagging Harry for months about how she can’t wait for him to extend the family.

‘She loves being a grandmother and a great-grandmother!’ 

The royal family is yet to respond to the reports.
