The Suits actress and Prince Harry first crossed paths in 2016, and they later wed in Windsor, England, in front of a large international audience, in a lavish ceremony. But before even meeting the royal, she had mentioned having children.

According to an interview Meghan gave to Best Life magazine, she expressed optimism for the future. “Other bucket-list items: I want to travel more, and I can’t wait to start a family, but in due time,” she said.

Meghan gave an interview to Lifestyle Magazine the same year she met her prince, expressing optimism about her family’s future. “Balance is key, and while I’m happy with my job and fortunate to travel the world and see a lot of incredible things, it will also be comforting to be anchored to something stable and in the same location. A wonderful aspect of that will be raising a family, she said.

“Like fewer parents, we were spared the harsh choice of staying at home with our child during those crucial first few months or returning to work. We were confident that we could bring her home and give our children and our family our undivided attention during that crucial (and sacred) stage.
