Royal expert Katie Nicholl, author of Harry: Life, Loss, and Love, talks about the new royal couple and their desire for growing their family asap. “My sources are saying that Prince Harry, particularly, is very keen to start a family, pretty soon after the royal wedding,” Nicholl told Entertainment Tonight. “He’s made no secret about wanting children.”

Harry’s desire to have children have grown even more with the arrival of his nephew Prince George and niece Princess Charlotte into this world. “I think that moment [for Harry] really kicked in when his brother, Prince William, of course, settled down with Kate Middleton,” Nicholl said. “That has definitely gotten Prince Harry pretty broody.”

“The reason he wanted Meghan to meet Prince George and Princess Charlotte was so she could see that—this would be hopefully replicated by them, that they would go on to have children,” she said. “That you marry into the royal family, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a regular family with cute children, and here are George and Charlotte to show that that can happen. That was really important to him.”

While looking at hypoallergenic baby products during a visit in Ireland, Meghan pointed to them and said, “I’m sure at some point we’ll need the whole thing.”

“Meghan is very doting with children,” Nicholl confirmed. “She is very maternal and she was thrilled to meet George and Charlotte. I think one of the lovely things, anecdotes that I discovered [while writing] the book was, it was actually a moment involving children, when Meghan really fell for Prince Harry.”
