Sounds like there could be a new little royal sooner than we thought. And this time we're not speculating about a sibling for Prince George and Princess Charlotte -- more like a cousin. Rumor has it Prince Harry can't wait to be a father and is making plans for his family's future while visiting Australia this summer -- before evening popping the question to girlfriend Meghan Markle. 


While it might sound a bit like that old "putting the cart before the horse," we're sure the prince has a plan -- and probably a gorgeous engagement ring -- up his sleeve if he's considering starting a family. 

Supposedly, Harry, 32, will ask for the Suits star, 35, to be his wife any day now. 

"Having a baby with Meghan is all that Harry talks about at the moment – he can't wait to be a dad," a source told New Idea.

Maybe spending time with his adorable niece and nephew at Pippa Middleton's wedding got Harry thinking about getting a move on it. 

Back in April, the redheaded royal told the Telegraph's Mad World podcast: "Of course, I would love to have kids." And it sounds like his present state of mind is "Why wait any longer?" 

According to the source who spoke with New Idea, while the royal is Down Under he'll be scoping out property where he and the Mrs. may settle down for as long as one month per year. Apparently, Harry has a great affinity for the continent after spending time there during his army days.

"He loves Australia and would love to take his and Meghan's new baby to Sydney for the little one's first royal tour," the source claims. "It would mean a lot to him."

Certainly sounds like Harry's making all the decisions! Will his lady love accompany him on his tour of Australia and Singapore that kicks off this week? That hasn't been confirmed yet, but you'd think the raven-haired beauty would want to see what she's signing up for, wouldn't you?

As devoted as she is to her beloved dogs, Meghan doesn't strike us as the farm-girl type. We could be wrong. And what about her career? We know she shuttered her lifestyle website, The Tig, supposedly because of her relationship with the prince. Is she willing to give up everything she worked so hard to achieve to summer on sprawling acreage with Harry? Time will tell!

Of course, it's not every day that your prince charming comes along and wants to whisk you off to a secluded paradise. If Harry's spotted scoping out property, it could be a tell-tale sign a wedding will soon follow!
