    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tied the knot this year in quite possibly the most touching (and star-studded) ceremony to date.

    The royal wedding guests were A-list and the official wedding photographs since have been stunning, with some very touching tributes to Princess Diana.

    But instead of looking back, the public instead seem far more concerned with looking forwards to the now Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s future.

    The couple now have their new titles and an enviable home – well, two if you include their new stately home on the Queen’s Sandringham Estate.

    So what’s next? Children it sounds like.

    While the couple originally announced in their engagement interview that they were taking it ‘one step at a time’, Harry did let slip that he hoped ‘[they] will start a family in the near future.’

    And it looks like it could be sooner than we thought.

    There have been Prince Harry baby rumours for as long as the couple have been together, but now they seem to be growing louder than ever.

    ‘Having children is definitely a priority,’ a source close to the couple reportedly told Us Weekly, going on to explain that the couple ‘want to start a family right away – and she’ll start trying as soon as she can.’

    There have been rumours circulating for a while, with royal correspondent Katie Nicholl backing the speculation.

    ‘My sources are saying that Prince Harry, particularly, is very keen to start a family, pretty soon after the royal wedding,’ Nicholl reportedly told Entertainment Tonight ahead of the nuptials. ‘He’s made no secret about wanting children.’

    She continued: ’I think that moment [for Harry] really kicked in when his brother, Prince William, of course, settled down with Kate Middleton. That has definitely gotten Prince Harry pretty broody.’

    We guess we’ll have to wait and see.
