Since announcing that they’re expecting their first child, all eyes have been on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Everyone wants to know whether they’re hoping for a boy or a girl, why they’re using vegan paint in the nursery, and whether they’ve picked a name for the royal baby.
When it comes to their bundle of joy, they’ve been very open with the public, and at a red carpet bash this week, Meghan spoke about Harry becoming a dad and what she said will melt your heart.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were attending an event that celebrates the achievements of wounded, injured and sick military veterans. It was hosted by actor and documentary maker, Ross Kemp, who spent time chatting to the couple. He said Meghan was ‘stunning’ and went on to reveal: ‘We talked about how they’ve got a puppy and we got a puppy before we had our first boy. It’s a preparation for nappy changing and pooping basically.’
At the pre-awards party at Draper’s hall, Harry reportedly spoke about his first child, telling a fellow guest: ‘There’s a heavy baby in there!’
Meghan was also chatting to those in attendance, and she was reportedly overheard saying: ‘He’s going to be the best dad.’
The first award of the night went to Kelly Ganfield, a visually impaired runner who has taken part in the Invictus Games, an international sporting event set up by Harry for wounded, injured or sick armed services personnel and their associated veterans.
She spoke about meeting Harry and Meghan, explaining: ‘He met me in Bath for the trials with Meghan. She is a total asset to the British public and nation.
‘She is going to be a mother soon and — yet again from the trials — she saw my daughter Bethany who was two at the time. She is now three.
‘Bethany gravitated to her and Meghan kind of gravitated to Bethany. She has cerebral palsy. Meghan was amazing with her. And Harry was beaming — but he’s always like that.’
