The steps Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan are taking to make sure Baby Sussex isn’t spoiled

The couple are changing all the royal rules when it comes to parenting!

Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry have proved time and time again that blue-blooded or not, they’re humble, modern, hard-working people.

Just like everything The Duke and Duchess of Sussex do – such as championing women’s rights, helping remove the stigma surrounding mental health issues and drawing attention to environmental challenges – their plan on raising the next generation of royals is decidedly modern.

And it seems that the Sussex way of raising their first child when he or she arrives in April next year will be to ensure that the very youngest members of The Firm will not be spoiled, but will grow up understanding the privilege into which they have been born and appreciate as much as possible what it’s like to live ‘normally’.

The royal newlyweds are thought to be expecting their first child in April next year.

Trusted royal correspondent from Us Weekly Omid Scobie says that the Prince, 34, and the 37-year-old former Suits actress hope to “bring up children who know the values of normal things in life.”

“Meghan will take her kids on a subway. They’ll have chores, and jobs one day,” Scobie tells the magazine. “They won’t be spoiled.”

Indeed, the couple are determined that the Sussex children will have a much more regular upbringing than their royal cousins.

As sixth in line to the throne, Prince Harry (seen here with Duchess Meghan and The Queen at Princess Eugenie’s wedding in October), does not have the same pressure of royal protocol as his brother the Duke of Cambridge.

As the children of the heir to the throne, Prince George, five, Princess Charlotte, three, and six-month-old Prince Louis, will have to lead a far more traditional royal childhood.

This is in part due to the fact their parents are increasingly taking on official duties in place of The Queen, who is in her 92nd year.

The adorably loved-up couple will undoubtedly make excellent parents to the latest addition to The Firm.

It seems Harry and Meghan are ready to help nurture their eagerly-awaited children into becoming hard working, humble, royals of the future – and we applaud them for it!
