The ever-beautiful duchess Meghan Markle is set to give birth any minute, and as we all know, there's a lot of preparation that goes into getting ready for a new baby ... especially a royal one. This may be the Duchess of Sussex's first baby, but don't worry, this royal lady is more than ready to be a mother. Just like we're sure Prince Harry can't wait to be a dad. The duchess has been talking about starting a family well before she even met Harry, so there's no question that Meghan has been doing everything she possibly can to get ready for Baby Sussex's arrival. Now, we're sure the duchess has some nerves about becoming a mother, but she really has nothing to worry about.

Yes, raising a royal baby comes with extra stresses that normal moms don't really have to think about, but Meghan has a great partner in Prince Harry. With these two as parents, there's nothing that this child will want for. We've all had the pleasure of getting to know Meghan as a royal over the last year, and she certainly hasn't disappointed. The duchess has proven that she's kind, loyal, and fiercely independent, so there's no doubt that these things will carry over into her role as a mom.

From the decisions she's already made concerning her little baby to all of her future plans, Meghan is nothing if not prepared for her new role as mom. All we can do is hope that she and Harry share the news of the baby's arrival soon!

Because there's no one more ready to welcome Baby Sussex than Meghan, here are 20 signs she's more than ready to be a mom. 

  • She's Wanted This for a While

    Even before she was dating Harry, Meghan had been open about the fact that she wanted kids and a family of her own. It may have taken her a little bit longer to find the right guy, but we think her choice in Harry was the perfect one.

  • Already Planning the Baby's Diet

    Reports have been circulating that Meghan plans on passing down her healthy way of living to her little baby, and that the duchess has intentions of raising her child to be vegan. While we won't hold much truth to this rumor until the duchess confirms it for herself, it's not to crazy to expect that Meghan is already thinking about how she's going to nourish her kiddo.

  • She's Making Her Own Decisions

    Meghan is clearly going to be a mom that's not swayed by other people's opinions or thoughts of her. This duchess has already been firm on how she wants things to be for her pregnancy and birth plan, and we have a good feeling that's not going to change once Baby Sussex arrives.

  • She's Confident in Harry

    Meghan definitely seems like the type of woman who wouldn't do something she wasn't 100% positive about, and that includes marrying Harry. We often forget that Meghan was married before, and the fact that her first child is going to be with her prince definitely says something about the duchess.

  • She Knows What Kind of Mom She Is

    Just like she's confident in Harry, Meghan is also confident in the type of mom she wants to be. By nature, Meghan is a kind, gentle, and charitable person, so there's no doubt that all of those traits will transfer into her parenting style.

  • She's Adapted to Her Surroundings

    Let's think about how far Meghan has come in the last year. She started hanging out with the royals, married Prince Harry, moved across the pond, and adapted to all of the traditions. Adjusting to the mom life is going to be a piece of cake for this duchess.

  • She Has the Support System She Needs

    Sure, Meghan has a team of royal aides and Prince Harry by her side, but she also has her mom and a team of friends that can help out at a moments notice. With a support system like that, who wouldn't be ready to be a mom?

  • She & Harry Have Moved

    Meghan and Harry have officially made their move to the cottage outside London. We can only expect that the duchess is using this time away from the madness of the city to prepare for Baby Sussex's arrival. The little tot can't come soon enough!

  • She Isn't Afraid of Controversy

    If there's one thing this duchess hasn't avoided since earning HRH status, it's controversy. And that stays true with her baby, too. Meghan has been bucking royal tradition left and right, and now she's doing it by possibly not using the queen's doctors during her birth. As a mom, she might make decisions that some people don't like, but at the end of the day, it's about what's best for Baby Sussex!

  • She Seems Calm & Relaxed

    Meghan may be on maternity leave now, but at every event she attended while pregnant, the duchess looked calm and poised. Sure, all moms have some nerves about becoming a parent, but Meghan has been the image of confidence throughout her pregnancy.

  • She Understands the Importance of Family

    Meghan wouldn't have married into the royal family if she didn't understand the importance and tradition of what it stands for. Even with her own family and circle of friends, this duchess puts those she loves first in life, making her all the more ready to be a mom.

  • She Waited a Long Time to Have Kids

    At 37, Meghan is on the older side for starting to have kids, but the stars must have been aligned, because the duchess didn't have kids in her first marriage. Fate knew all she needed was a partner in Prince Harry, and then she would be ready for motherhood.

  • She Has a Great Relationship With Her Own Mom

    Harry said it best during their engagement interview, "Her mom's amazing." Doria Ragland has been nothing but supportive during her daughter's time as a royal, and there's no question that Meghan is ready to be a mom, because she had such an amazing role model in her own mother. 

  • She's Always Been Health-Conscious

    Meghan may be across the pond now, but she's still living her California health-conscious lifestyle, and we're sure she's going to incorporate some of that into her parenting. Raising a healthy child definitely won't be a struggle for her. Plus, we're seeing some mommy/kid yoga outings in their future.

  • She's Been Flying Under the Radar Lately

    Meghan hasn't been spotted out on royal business in a few weeks, so we can only assume that she's started her maternity leave. Undoubtedly, the duchess probably still has a lot to prepare for, but no question about it, once Baby Sussex comes, Meghan will be more than ready.

  • She Knows When to Share

    Over the last nine months, Meghan has been somewhat open about her pregnancy and the soon-to-be Baby Sussex. Similar to Kate Middleton, we can imagine that Meghan will be selective about what she shares with the public. Some things are just between mom and baby!

  • She Isn't Afraid to Show Affection

    Meghan and Prince Harry broke off from Kensington Palace in more ways than just geographically! She and Harry started their own Instagram account for pictures and updates, and we have a good feeling that this is where they plan on making the birth announcement.
