Meghan Markle and Prince Harry can’t wait to start a family

By: Meaghan Wray

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry can’t wait to start a family, though they will be taking it “one step at a time,” the couple revealed in a recent interview.

The pair opened up about their love story and future together following news of their engagement on Monday (Nov. 27). Prince Harry and Meghan sat down with the BBC to discuss their relationship and when quizzed on the prospect of children, the 33-year-old prince said with a laugh, "Not currently. One step at a time, hopefully we'll start a family in the near future." Meghan nodded in agreement beside her future husband.

Harry is incredible with kids and has been a fun and doting uncle to his brother's children Prince George and Princess Charlotte. Days after George’s birth, Harry vowed to be an uncle that would "make sure he has a good upbringing, keep him out of harm’s way and to make sure he has fun." Over the years, he has expressed his desire to start a family and explained that he was just "waiting to find the right person."

Meghan, 36, has also been dreaming about starting a family. "It's all about balance, and 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," she once told Lifestyle magazine.

During his search for "The One," Harry has dedicated much of his adult life to giving back to disadvantaged youth. In September, Harry made a surprise appearance at Toronto's WE Day, where he encouraged youth to use their voices to change the world.

Harry has also become a role model for young people who have received support from his Lesotho-based children's charity Sentebale. He co-founded the organization in 2006, and has watched it help hundreds of vulnerable children affected by HIV/AIDS.
