Meghan Markle & Prince Harry’s Surprising Parenting Approach Unveiled

Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle and her husband, Prince Harry are changing the royal parenting rules.

The royal couple, who welcomed their first child, a baby boy on Monday, May 6, have set a game plan to raise their children in their own special way. As part of the royal family rules, any child born into the family will surely have a comfortable upbringing.

But turns out that Meghan and Harry might be keen to make sure their baby boy, Archie Harrison Mountbatten -Windsor doesn’t get stuck in the royal bubble – much like Princess Diana wished to do with Prince William and Harry.

When the royal brothers were growing up, their mother often took them out to places children their age also went, like theme parks and even McDonald’s.

Meghan and Harry will reportedly be following her footsteps when it comes to parenting their children, in a bid to bring up children who are not spoiled.

According to royal commentator Omid Scobie, who spoke to Us Weekly, the couple want to ”bring up children who know the values of normal things in life.”

The Suits alum, 37, wants her little ones with Harry, 34, to live a far more regular life than their cousins, Prince George, 5, Princess Charlotte, 3, and Prince Louis, 6 months. For example, Scobie says:

The royal pair, who tied the knot in May 2018, confirmed five months after their wedding ceremony that they were expecting. The Kensington Palace statement read at the time:

“Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Sussex is expecting a baby in the Spring of 2019.

Their Royal Highnesses have appreciated all of the support they have received from people around the world since their wedding in May and are delighted to be able to share this happy news with the public.”

Before their baby news, the former actress and her husband spoke openly about wanting a brood of their own. Harry admitted that he and the duchess wanted to “start a family in the near future” during their first joint interview in November 2017, just after news broke of their engagement. A close source says:

“Having children is definitely a priority. She and Harry want to start a family right away — and she’ll start trying as soon as she can.”

Even before meeting, Meghan and Harry spoke separately about their desire to have children. The duke told ABC News in 2012:

“I’ve longed for kids since I was very, very young. I’m waiting to find the right person, someone who is willing to take the job.”

His future wife said something similar in 2016. She told Lifestyle magazine:

“I have so much happiness in my career and am fortunate to travel the world and see so many amazing things. It will also be nice to be anchored to something grounded and in the same place. Raising a family will be a wonderful part of that.”
