Three months after exchanging vows in the globally watch wedding of the century, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are starting the next big chapter in their lives – starting a family!

Palace insiders have confirmed recent reports that the newlyweds are expecting twins, Life & Style reports. Adding to the excitement, friends close to the couple are buzzing that the duchess is pregnant with two girls!

‘They have been busy drawing up a list of baby names, only for girls,’ a source tells the US publication.

‘Harry is over the moon!’ 

‘He let it slip to pals that double trouble lies ahead,’ the insider dished, ‘calling the twins ‘miracle babies’, Harry has never been happier.’

‘Meghan is thrilled to be pregnant,’ adds the source, noting the Duke and Duchess of Sussex had been visiting a fertility doctor.

The pregnancy is in its early stages, but Meghan, 37, and Harry, 33, are already thinking ahead and narrowing down a list of names, Life & Style claims.

Although the decision isn’t final, ‘Harry and Meghan have agreed for now that Diana and Elizabeth should be their babies’ names,’ a source reveals. 

Kate Middleton and Prince William were among the first to learn of the pregnancy. 

‘As a mum-of-three, Kate is full of words of wisdom about what motherhood entails,’ says the source. 

‘She has been giving Meghan tips on what to eat and how to conceal her small bump.’

The source adds that Meghan is nervous about starting a family, while Harry is more worried about what happens when the girls grow up. 

‘Harry will be a protective father,’ says the source. 

Meanwhile, 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 wanted 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.’
