Is this why Meghan Markle is waiting to have a baby with Prince Harry?
Culled from The Sun
Royal fans have been desperate for Meghan Markle to announce her pregnancy ever since she joined the royal family back in May, The Sun reported.
But the Duchess of Sussex, 37, and husband Prince Harry, 33, could be waiting to start a family for this one reason, and it's makes a lot of sense when you think about it.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry may be waiting to start a family, because of royal commitments
The royal couple are due to embark on their first joint royal tour in October - with a trip to Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand - including Sydney's Invictus Games from October 20-27.
And, despite Harry previously saying he wanted to have kids "in the near future", a packed royal itinerary could put plans to expand the family on ice.
Morning sickness is normally at its worst during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy, while the risk of miscarriage in a first pregnancy is also higher.
And the 37-year-old won't want to risk missing royal engagements because she's ill - meaning chances of a honeymoon baby looks increasingly unlikely.
The couple are off Down Under in October, and Meghan's unlikely to want to have morning sickness on the trip
If they do delay the pregnancy, the couple will be following in the footsteps of their in-laws Kate Middleton and Prince William, both 36.
They were the first future monarchs in 200 years not to conceive in their first year of marriage - with Kate announcing her pregnancy 19 months in.
It's thought that the Queen's Diamond Jubilee - and their related trip to Asia - was the reason behind the wait.
Morning sickness is normally worst in the first three months of pregnancy, while the risk of miscarriage can also be higher
Royal author Gill Knappett told The Express: “It is thought that William and Catherine, as newlyweds, may have delayed staring a family so that they could participate fully in the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations in 2012.
“Part of William and Catherine’s commitment to the Queen in her Diamond Jubilee year involved the young couple touring Asia on behalf of Her Majesty in September 2012.”
The exact dates of trip Down Under are yet to be announced, but it's expected to span at least two weeks - and could be longer.
If the couple do wait until November to start trying for a baby, we're unlikely to hear the pitter patter of tiny feet before this time next year.

And the Queen has "gifted" the couple a Grade II-listed lovenest in Windsor – with a VERY interesting past.
My view: This is just an excuse, for Meghan to continue to delay getting pregnant, the first excuse her friends leaked to the media was that she asked Prince Harry to cut back on alcohol and quit smoking so they can start planning for a baby and now her reason for delaying getting pregnant is because of morning sickness if she should embark on the Royal tour. Which is more important having a baby at 37 or travelling with your husband, which he can comfortably do on his own. Meghan is not a spring chicken, any woman in her position will get pregnant fast and the rest can wait, at her age she doesn't even need to discuss when they can start having a baby, when you're a new and overmatured wife, you just want to have the best s*x and get pregnant immediately not thinking of any thing else, or maybe Meghan has fertility problem that she is not discussing or she wants to have IVF treatment. But after giving up so much, all she needs now is the best gift from God and stop procastinating. if her pregnancy has no complications then there's no reason why Meghan can't travel safely, as long as she take the right precautions. Also she can afford to have a Doctor with her for the duration of her trip and goodluck when you finally decide to have a baby, we can't wait to see your gorgeous baby. So who even leaked this story to the media.
