Meghan and Harry plan to give their unborn child a normal upbringing
Insiders say Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have “set a game plan” to ensure their child has a “normal upbringing” which will include doing chores and using public transport. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will become parents next year and they want to “bring up children who know the values of normal things in life”.
Meghan, 37, is said to be eager to make sure her children are not spoiled, and will even take her kids on a subway or the Tube.
Speaking to US Weekly, royal correspondent Omid Scobie said Harry and Meghan will be “changing the royal parenting rules”, and have “set a game plan” for how they want to raise their children.
Meghan will take her kids on a subway. They’ll have chores, and jobs one day. They won’t be spoiled.
It comes after it was reported that Harry and Meghan would not be seeking a royal title for their first child, to enable them to lead a normal life. If the new royal baby is a boy, he will likely become the Earl of Dumbarton, a subsidiary title given to Prince Harry on the day of his wedding, while a girl would become Lady Mountbatten-Windsor.
The Duke and Duchess are thought to be considering following in the footsteps of Queen Elizabeth’s only daughter, Princess Anne who famously turned down the offer to give her children royal roles in a break from tradition. Both Zara Tindall, formerly Zara Phillips, and Peter Phillips do not carry a royal title, unlike their cousins Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice.
