We all know that Meghan Markle was under some intense scrutiny when she was dating Prince Harry (and that really hasn’t changed since they got married), but according to a new report, Queen Elizabeth took things to another level when it came to allowing Markle to join the Royal family. Palace insiders are claiming that the former Suits actress had to endure fertility tests to guarantee she would have children.
An inside source says that Markle had to undergo invasive and humiliating exams before she got permission to marry Prince Harry. The source adds that the fertility tests “disgusted” Markle, but she was willing to do anything to be a Royal.

“She was so intent on joining the royal family she submitted to it. It’s ironic. For years Meghan has positioned herself as someone who campaigns for women’s rights,” says the source. “This test flew in the face of all her beliefs about women being independent and strong.”
There was also the suggestion that Markle should freeze her eggs, which the insider says “sickened” her, but in the end, she relented and had the procedure done.
The clock is ticking for the 37-year-old and her new husband, and the insider also claims that Queen Elizabeth ordered them to have at least three children. According to Radar Online, before they got married, Markle told Harry she only wanted two kids, especially after the criticism William and Kate received for having three kids in an overpopulated world.
However, there is apparently pressure from senior Royals to “match” William and Kate, and Markle is going to have to give up on the idea of having a smaller family.

Ever since the newlyweds said “I do” fans have been talking about when the couple would announce a pregnancy. And, a British celebrity known as Psychic Sally recently made a prediction about when we would hear the news.
Psychic Sally, also known as Sally Morgan, recently appeared on the show Loose Women — after her stint on the British version of Celebrity Big Brother — and she said that we would hear something before the end of the year.
The prediction excited the audience, but Morgan also said that there would soon be “a restructure” in the Royal family, but that didn’t necessarily mean there would be a death in the family.
Host Janet Street-Porter questioned Morgan’s predictions and said that they weren’t very controversial because everyone in the country is waiting for Meghan Markle to get pregnant. And, she says, it’s “just a matter of time.”
