Is this what dads do - sell their sporty toys before starting a family?

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry may soon start having kids, British magazine Hello speculates, after the Duke of Sussex put his sporty Audi up for sale.

As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Harry recently put up for sale his old ride, his Audi RS6 Avant. It’s a sporty model befitting a prince, and it can be yours for around a hundred grand, give or take (£71,900, to be specific, or about $94,274.06 at current exchange rates).

So does that mean that he’s trading in his youthful ride for something more befitting a dad? Perhaps a sensible family sedan or an SUV? Hello writer Ainhoa Barcelona thinks so.

She quotes Erin Baker, the editorial director of Auto Trader, which is listing the vehicle. And of course, Baker has a suggestion for the prince, should he have babies on his mind.

“Maybe he’s on the market for a bigger family car, in which case we’d recommend a Skoda Superb, which won the best family car in our recent New Car Awards, or maybe he’s after an electric car, having driven Meghan away after their wedding in an electric Jag?”

Now that the ink has started to dry on Harry and Meghan’s marriage license, royal watchers are looking toward the couple to produce the next royal baby. After all, William and Kate have already had three, which by royal standards is one too many (“an heir and a spare,” as the old saying goes).

With a fourth child from William and Kate very unlikely, and with Prince George decades away from being a dad (he’s only five, after all), Harry and Meghan will almost certainly be the next Mountbatten-Windsors to add children to the family line.

Harry is sixth in line to the throne, so any kids he and Meghan have will be seventh and eighth (and so on), replacing their great-uncle, Prince Andrew, and their second cousin, Princess Beatrice (respectively) in those slots.

As for when they’ll have kids: In July, Harry told Cosmopolitan that it wouldn’t be too awfully long before there were more little Windsors running around Kensington Palace.

“I think eventually, one step at a time and we’ll start a family in the near future.”

As for how many, while he’s evasive about a specific number, it will almost certainly be less than five. The reason we know that is because a while back an Irish woman approached Harry and, throwing royal protocol out the window, asked him an intensely personal question.

“My husband also has red hair and he gave me five children — when are you and Meghan going to get going?”

Harry’s response was to laugh and to say that five kids were “too many.”

So maybe Harry selling his old ride is an indication that the first of no more than five new Windsors will be coming soon.
