While the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are totally #couplegoals, the new parents are likely still in the newborn baby fog that strikes every new mom and dad. And while Meghan and Harry seem to be thriving in their new roles, the famous duo have likely seen aspects of their relationship change with the stork’s delivery of their cherubic firstborn.
Here we take at look at 5 Ways Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s Relationship has Changed Since Welcoming Baby Archie:
1.) They’re Craving Normalcy
While both Meghan and Harry are frequently front page news, with the arrival of Master Archie, Harry and Meghan are craving more domestic bliss and want a cozy home life. The pair are keen to grow veggies and literally and figuratively plant roots in their new love nest. And while Archie will have a royal title when Prince Charles ascends the throne, the couple wish to make their son’s low-key first years as fishbowl free as possible.
2.) They’re Keen to Travel
In keeping with their hopes and dreams of having their son have a relatively normal childhood, the pair have decided that travel might be a way to ensure they can keep Archie Harrison out of the media maelstrom. The Sussex family will travel to Southern Africa and many rumors have surfaced that they may at some point try an extended overseas stay.
3.) They’re Growing Closer to Family
From Prince Harry including the Spencer sisters in Archie’s christening to mommy and me playdates with Duchess Kate, Harry and Co. are making a big effort to ensure their tiny tot grows up with his nearest and dearest. In recent weeks, Harry and William have also been seen high-fiving at polo and the Dynamic Duchess Duo of Kate and Meghan have been spotted together at Wimbledon. Rumor has it that Major Archie will also attend Prince George’s upcoming July birthday.
4.) They’re Developing a Parent Posse
While having a child can be a joyous experience, there’s a certain level of stress and isolation that comes with tending to a newborn day in and out. Meghan and Harry have sought outside parental company to compare notes with and they’ve developed a group of trusted mommy and daddy partners-in-crime. From Amal Clooney’s scheduling tips to Serena’s candid confessions that the first three months with a baby are a “difficult time,” Meghan’s bound to welcome some wisdom from her gaggle of gal pals. She also has likely sought advice from mom, Doria Ragland as well as friends like Jessica Mulroney (mom of three).
5.) They’re Planning to Expand their Family
Multiple media outlets are reporting that the Sussex club will get a new member in the very near future. As the Duchess of Sussex will celebrate her 38th birthday on August 4th, it’s likely that the couple will want to have more children sooner than later; royal experts are predicting the duchess will even be pregnant this time next year. Rumor has it the couple may even adopt a child from Africa as they became interested in the idea after a visit to a Botswana orphanage. Plus, a new furry friend may join the family as well as Mommy Meghan is keen to get a rescue pup for little Archie.
