Meghan Markle is sad when she thinks about her babies, source claims. The reason is heartbreaking.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, once senior members of the British Royal Family, now enjoy a different kind of family life in the United States.

They are proud parents to two children: Archie, born in the UK, and Lilibet, born in the US after the family relocated.

Although, the source claims, Meghan Markle is sad when she thinks about her babies.

Keep reading to learn the reason for this revelation…

Archie made his entrance into the world on May 6, 2019, at The Portland Hospital in London. His birth was a major event, followed closely by royal watchers and the media. Despite the usual fanfare that accompanies a royal birth, Harry and Meghan opted for privacy, a decision that sparked considerable public and media discourse.

Even before Archie had the ability to speak or walk, he was entangled in a significant controversy that surfaced following Harry and Meghan’s revealing interview with Oprah Winfrey. In this interview, Meghan discussed her challenges while living in the UK and shared insights about the British monarchy, including the detail that then-Prince Charles had at times refused to take Harry’s calls.

However, the most startling disclosure was Meghan’s claim that there had been conversations within the palace about the potential skin color of Archie before he was born.

The birth of a royal child is always a significant event, and Archie’s arrival was no exception. However, Harry and Meghan chose to handle the situation differently.

Katie Nicholl, in her book “The New Royals: Queen Elizabeth’s Legacy and the Future of the Crown,” characterized Harry as being “almost morbidly obsessed” with maintaining the secrecy of Archie’s birth as much as possible.

Typically, when a royal baby is born, the parents appear on the hospital steps with their newborn to pose for the media. After photos are snapped, the proud parents might answer a few questions before retreating to their private life.

However, Katie Nicholl reports that Harry and Meghan chose a different approach for Archie’s birth. Instead of openly engaging with the media, they managed to mislead reporters and photographers.

Traditionally, royal babies such as Prince William, Prince Harry, and William’s children—Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis—were born at St Mary’s Hospital, where the first photos were usually taken.

However, Meghan’s obstetrician was based at Portland Hospital, making it the logical choice for Archie’s birth. Additionally, the Sussexes were informed that the hospital’s layout would prevent photography due to safety concerns at the entrance.

Nicholl notes in her book, “The New Royals: Queen Elizabeth’s Legacy and the Future of the Crown,” that “Harry had always relished the challenge of outsmarting the media.”

Harry ate chicken while Meghan was in labor

Two days after the birth, Harry and Meghan opted for a controlled photo session, allowing just one reporter to pose questions.

The hospital stay had its share of drama, as Harry recounts in his memoir, “Spare.” He describes a remarkable incident at Portland Hospital where he turned to laughing gas to soothe his nerves.

“I identified two methods to stabilize my nerves. First: Nando’s chicken, courtesy of our bodyguards. Second: a canister of laughing gas next to Meg’s bed. I indulged in several deep inhalations,” Harry wrote in his book.

“Meg remained incredibly composed, and so did I,” he continued.

He recounted, “Meg, actively bouncing on a giant purple ball—a known method to expedite labor—laughed and rolled her eyes as I took several more breaths of gas, eventually joining her in bouncing.”

Harry then shared that when a nurse attempted to administer the gas to Meghan for pain relief, he had already used it all.

“The realization hit slowly. Good heavens, the husband’s used it all. ‘Sorry,’ I muttered sheepishly.”

As Meghan’s pain intensified, the decision was made to administer an epidural.

“The anesthetist rushed in, turning off the music and switching on the lights. Quite the change in atmosphere,” he described.

Despite initial concerns that Archie might be entangled in his umbilical cord, he was born healthy, overwhelming both Harry and Meghan with emotion.

Lilibet’s birth – expert says naming her after late queen could be perceived as “disrespectful”

Archie, along with his parents and grandmother Doria Ragland, was on what the Duke termed the “Freedom Flight” as they left UK territory and royal obligations to start anew in the US. After a short stint in Canada, the Sussexes established themselves in the opulent Montecito, California, purchasing a $14 million estate they nicknamed “Fort Knox.”

On Sunday, June 6, 2021, Harry and Meghan shared the joyful news that they had welcomed their daughter. They named her Lilibet, a tribute to her great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, who used the nickname as a young child when she could not pronounce her own name.

While meant as an homage to Queen Elizabeth, royal commentator and author Tom Quinn suggested that Harry was aware that naming their daughter Lilibet might be viewed by some as “disrespectful” to the late queen.

“In his book ‘Gilded Youth: An Intimate History of Growing Up in the Royal Family,’ Quinn notes that the choice to name their daughter Lilibet was intended as a delightful surprise for Queen Elizabeth, yet the intricacies of royal protocol made this decision contentious,” Quinn stated.

Quinn explained, “It’s hard to believe Harry didn’t foresee the issues this would raise. He should have known that using the queen’s cherished childhood nickname could be seen as disrespectful and invasive in a way that simply naming their daughter Elizabeth would not.”

He added, “While it’s possible that the Queen herself might have been upset that her grandson and his family used such a personal nickname, it’s more likely that the aides and some more traditional senior royals took offense to what they perceived as an overstep.”

Meghan Markle revealed she suffered a miscarriage

About a year before Elizabeth’s birth, Harry and Meghan endured a devastating loss. In 2020, Meghan became pregnant but tragically miscarried.

Four months after the miscarriage, Meghan shared her painful experience in a heartfelt article. She described the harrowing moments in the hospital: “Hours later, I lay in a hospital bed, holding my husband’s hand. His palm was clammy, and I kissed his knuckles, damp from our shared tears. As I stared at the stark white walls, I tried to envision a path to healing. To lose a child is to endure grief of an unimaginable magnitude,” she wrote.

Four years later, the pain lingers. A source close to Meghan told OK! Magazine that the approach of the miscarriage anniversary each year revives her sorrow.

Despite this, Meghan finds great joy in her family.

“She feels incredibly blessed to have Archie and Lili and the life she and Harry have built. However, as the miscarriage anniversary draws near, she does experience a resurgence of sadness. It’s a significant time for her,” the source explained to OK!.

Meghan remains focused on the future, cherishing the happiness she shares with Harry and their children. “I am grateful for the joy in my life with Harry and the kids,” Meghan expressed.

Regarding her children’s growth and the changes in their lives, she noted, “I feel fortunate that our children are still very young and we’re not facing immediate big changes, but the rapid pace of change is daunting and it’s something we will have to confront soon.”

As Archie prepares to start preschool in August and Lilibet gears up for kindergarten, Meghan will have more opportunities to devote to her recent venture, the lifestyle brand American Riviera Orchard, which she launched a few months ago.

Meghan Markle is “sad” that her children are growing up, source claims

According to a source cited by OK! Magazine, Meghan believes it’s important to demonstrate to her children that “mothers work as well.”

“However, she prioritizes her family life, arranging her work schedule around her children’s needs to ensure she’s there for them. She’s focused on making the most of every moment and cherishing their time together as they grow,” the source explained.

Following their departure from royal duties, Harry and Meghan have pursued various business initiatives. While not all have been successful, they recently embarked on a mission reminiscent of their royal duties.

A few weeks ago, they traveled to Nigeria on a three-day tour to promote the Invictus Games. The reception they received was akin to an official royal visit, which reportedly upset the Royal Family, as it seemed they were conducting a royal tour without authorization, despite no longer being working royals.

Although Harry and Meghan were enthusiastic about their trip, Archie and Lilibet remained in the US. Reports suggest, however, that the children might accompany their parents on future international trips.

“Meghan finds it hard to be away from her children because she doesn’t want to miss out on their rapid growth,” a source told OK!.

“With Lili recently turning three, both Meghan and Harry are thinking about the future and how quickly their children are maturing. Meghan, in particular, is feeling sad as she realizes her babies are no longer in their infancy,” the source added.
