EXCLUSIVE: As Prince Harry and Meghan Markle continue to forge their lives in the US, a royal expert said the pair “trust few and rely on each other” and cast doubt on claims that the pair were considering a third child.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s “circle is small and their world is lonely”, a royal expert claimed – but disputed rumours that the pair were considering a third child.
Earlier this week, rumours swirled that the Sussexes were open to the idea of expanding their family, after a source told Closer that adding “one more to the mix” would be “wonderful” for the couple.
However, royal commentator Kinsey Schofield doesn’t believe a third sprog is on the cards – and added that after their exit from the royal family, the pair “trust few.”
“If Harry and Meghan truly are considering a third child, I imagine that it’s because their circle is small and their world is lonely,” Schofield told the Daily Star.
“Neither one of them has relationships with their families and both have ceased from communicating with longtime friends.
“They trust few and rely a lot on each other. Meghan has had multiple difficult pregnancies and I really don’t think she would even attempt to put her body through that again.”
The royal podcast host added that if the pair were to bring another life into the world, it would be going against a promise made by Harry several years ago, which saw him cap his family at four for environmental reasons.
“Although I’m almost used to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle contradicting themselves, a third child goes completely against what Prince Harry said in a 2019 conversation with chimpanzee expert Jane Goodall for British Vogue,” Schofield added.
“He told the activist that he would have two children at the most and blamed his decision on climate change.
“He specifically said that the birth of Archie heightened his awareness of the environment.”
She added: “I don’t think that the addition of another child would heal any existing animosity [between the Sussexes and their royal inlaws] but shutting up might.”
But it seems the Sussexes have no intention of “shutting up” after Meghan gave an interview with Variety Magazine where she opened up about the Queen’s death for the first time and said she felt “energized and excited” about the future.
“It’s been a complicated time, but my husband, ever the optimist, said, ‘Now she’s reunited with her husband,'” the Duchess said.
“In big moments in life, you get a lot of perspective.
“It makes you wonder what you want to focus your energy on. Right now, we feel energised and excited about all of the things we’ve been building toward. We’re also focused on our foundation. So much of the work we do includes the philanthropic space.”
