All work and no play makes Prince Harry a dull boy. Agree or disagree? Before they got married, he and Meghan Markle were quite lovey-dovey in public, but lately he’s become more mindful of the job and there’s been less hand-holding, more business. That’s not to say they’re completely devoid of affection; Harry manages to sneak in a look at Meg every now and again when she’s not looking, thank goodness.
It’s kind of got that, “OMG, I can’t believe she’s my wife” wonder about it, non? But admittedly, we do miss Harry gazing at Meghan with what seemed like the intention of knocking her up right then and there. Speaking of, when’s the baby-making going to start? Some inquiring minds in Ireland wanted to know and were brazen enough to ask.
People reports that while greeting fans in Dublin, one woman said to Harry, “My husband also has red hair and he gave me five children — when are you and Meghan going to get going?”
That sound you heard? A couple of things, really. Harry and Meghan’s jaws dropping, and somewhere southeast of them, about an hour and a half away in Buckingham Palace, was The Queen frantically reaching for her pearls to clutch the crap out of them.
Harry, at least, found it funny. “He laughed and said, ‘Five children? Too many.'”
What’s most shocking is that this woman would dare ask because it’s not OK. It’s a question that shouldn’t be asked, ever. You never know what a couple is dealing with. There might be fertility issues or perhaps they simply aren’t ready to start yet. While Harry joked with the woman, we think it’s safe to say Megs probably doesn’t want to start her own royal basketball team. Leave that to Will and Kate; they’re already more than halfway there.
It’s no secret Harry and Meghan want children; it’s something both are looking forward to. But if that’s not happening anytime too soon, we’d appreciate it if they could just go back to how they used to be, staring lovingly at each other with a heat that’s almost too much to take. Because for now, that’s enough.
