The totally logical reason Meghan Markle, expert planner, may delay starting a family

Fact: pregnancy is grueling. Tack on four international trips and it’s practically hellish. So it only makes sense that with all of the royal engagements Meghan Markle has on the docket for fall, she may be delaying getting pregnant.

Although the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have made their desire to start a family ASAP abundantly clear, the Express suggests that Markle may be pumping the baby breaks in order to avoid traveling while pregnant.

She and her beloved are slated to embark on their first royal tour together in October and will visit Australia, Fiji, the Kingdom of Tonga and New Zealand. That’s a lot of travel time, and as miserable as morning sickness is, it’s even worse 40,000 feet in the air. Even more, this is Markle’s first tour as a duchess and it’s highly likely she wants everything to go smoothly…which means not vomiting on any fellow dignitaries.

Hey, at least we have Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank’s wedding to curb our royal milestone fever.
