A source told Radar, “Harry and Meghan want to get pregnant as quickly as possible after their wedding.”
It was also revealed, “They both know that as Meghan gets older, it can get increasingly harder to conceive – and they are both keenly aware of her vulnerability to health complications and the chance of miscarriage the older she gets.”

The former Suits actress has already agreed to look into ‘In vitro fertilization (IVF)’ in order to get pregnant in case difficulties arise in conceiving a baby normally. IVF is a method of fertilization in which the sperm and the egg are connected outside of the female body.
According to the source, 33-year-old Prince Harry and 36-year-old Meghan have also consulted nutritionists and diet and exercise specialists to design a plan that would help the couple get pregnant immediately.

It was also revealed that the fact that Meghan is generally healthy and is fertile ‘immensely helped’ Harry’s decision to marry her. However, there was still ‘no chance’ that he would have pulled out of it, had that not been the case.
The source said, “Meghan has always looked after herself by eating healthily and doing a lot of exercise including yoga. Being in optimum health increases any woman’s chances of conceiving, and someone in Meghan’s shape should especially have no problem in that area.”

“The only issue is that she knows she is heading for the big 4-0, so knows the sooner she gets pregnant the better,” the source added.
Meghan Markle reportedly consulted London-based nutritionist, Melanie Brown, last year at her new Kensington Palace home. Brown gave Markle tips on how to stay fertile in order to conceive. Brown also said she has helped the future Princess with ‘pre-conceptual and pregnancy nutrition, including weight loss and gain and immune issues’.

Since then, the couple has been frequently visiting other doctors to make sure nothing goes wrong after their wedding on May 19. Apart from Brown, Prince Harry has separately met with nutritionist Gabriela Peacock for consultation on how he can reduce his weight and increase his fertility.

According to sources, the Prince has been taking cleansing supplements and vitamins ‘religiously’ and has lost around seven pounds for not only the fertility but also the wedding.
Speaking to BBC’s Mishal Husain in an interview, the couple has already said they want to start a family in the ‘near future’.
At the time, Harry said he loves being the ‘fun uncle’ of William and Kate’s three kids: George and Louis, and Charlotte. He added, “Of course, I would love to have kids. I’m a godfather to quite a few of my friends’ children – five or six.”
