When Prince Harry first started to date Meghan Markle, the American actress received so much backlash that the royal had to issue a public statement requesting that it stop. The couple has gotten closer and stronger since then, and reports are now claiming that the “Suits” star is pregnant. However, this news remains unconfirmed and media sources talking about it are all unnamed.

According to Life & Style Magazine (via Hollywood Life), Harry and Megan have already begun telling their friends that they want to start a family. The publication even reported that some of the members of their circle already believe that Meghan is pregnant. “She’s avoiding alcohol,” the source said. “And [she] has been complaining about feeling nauseous over recent weeks. She’s barely leaving the house right now.”

The report went on to claim that Harry has already begun putting together a nursery at his cottage in Kensington Palace. The source also said that Meghan has already agreed to move to London. Meghan’s half-sister, Samantha Markle, is thrilled at the news and is certain that the actress will be a great mother. “Meghan will be attentive,” she said. “[She] and Harry will be great parents. She seems to be at a point in her life [where she] has… the skills to develop a happy, healthy child.”

The pregnancy rumours are only adding fire to the belief that Harry and Meghan will soon get engaged and tie the knot. Meghan has also taken steps to make her public life less focused on her personal life and more about her philanthropic endeavours and acting career. The 35-year-old recently closed down her personal website The Tig.

“After close to three beautiful years on this adventure with you, it’s time to say goodbye to The Tig,” she wrote. “What began as a passion project (my little engine that could) evolved into an amazing community of inspiration, support, fun and frivolity.” Meghan, however, did not explain specifically why she was shutting down the website, in which she would write inspirational blog entries that drew lessons from her own life.

Some have speculated that closing The Tig indicates that Meghan and Harry will soon announce their engagement. However, People Magazine spoke to an individual who cleared this up. “She wants to focus this season of ‘Suits,’” they said. “[She] just started filming and spending more time in the field of her philanthropy.”
