We're told 36-year-old Meghan has been doing everything she can over the past few months to ensure she becomes a mum as soon as possible.

"Meghan's been longing to become a mum, even before she met Harry, so having a baby has been at the top of her list of priorities," an insider tells us.

"One of her primary focuses leading up to the wedding was getting her body prepared in the hope she'll fall pregnant quickly.

"She's been seeing fertility nutritionist Melanie Brown weekly, and even made Harry adopt her fertility diet for men."

Although Meghan's young, her body clock is ticking. "Her doctors have told her, due to her turning 37 this year, she doesn't really have too much time to wait." The first sign Harry and Meghan can't wait to start a family came in December, after insiders told Woman's Day Melanie had been spotted at the palace. It was later revealed she had given Meghan a strict fertility-boosting diet.

"Melanie was at Nottingham Cottage for around an hour checking Meghan's vitals, looking into her health history and taking down as much information as possible so she could devise a specialist diet for both her and Harry," a source said at the time.

Like his late mum, Princess Diana, Prince Harry is a natural with kids and has made it no secret that he can't wait to be a dad.

In their official engagement interview in November, Harry said that while children weren't in the immediate future for the two of them, it was something he and Meghan had discussed.

"Of course, one step at a time and hopefully we'll start a family in the near future."

And after all those months of wedding preparation, children are back on the happy couple's radar.

Harry and Meghan have also been preparing for their lives ahead as parents. Construction workers have been working round-the-clock to quickly complete their 21-room apartment renovations at Kensington Palace, making it fit for their growing family.

The sense of urgency around these renovations is yet another sign the prince and new duchess are hoping to fall pregnant as soon as possible.

"Meghan and Harry have already picked out their favourite names and thought about who'd be the godparents," another insider reveals.

"Meghan would love to have three children in the next five years, so she's certainly not going to be wasting any time!"
