Prince Harry has always been something of a rebellious royal. And in his marriage to Meghan Markle, it appears he’s found his perfect match. Indeed, since joining the British monarchy, the former actress has helped modernize her new family. And now, as the due date for the couple’s first child arrives, they look set to break from tradition again.
Even before Harry met Meghan, he made no secret of the fact that he wanted to become a father. In fact, even as far back as 2012 the young royal opened up about his thoughts on being a dad. He told ABC News, “I’ve longed for kids since I was very, very young. I’m waiting to find the right person and someone who’s willing to take on the job.”
Harry met Meghan in July 2016 and soon enough it seemed likely that the ringing of wedding bells would be shortly followed by the pitter patter of tiny feet. However, when asked about whether he wanted to be a dad in the near future during a BBC interview, Harry was unusually coy.
