Kate Middleton Gives Meghan Markle Weird-Ass Advice on How to Get Pregnant

It’s been almost four months since Meghan Markle married Prince Harry in a ceremony that inspired Ashleys the world over to make the ill-fated decision to wear a fancy hat to brunch the next day.

Naturally, the rumors about Meghan being pregnant with Harry’s baby began almost immediately after the ceremony, but thus far, there’s been no official announcement from Buckingham Palace.

Obviously, there’s nothing remotely unusual about a couple that’s been married less than four months being childless, but since Meghan is 37, and she and Harry have both spoken publicly about wanting to raise a large family, it was widely assumed they’d get right down to the business of making babies.

At thisn point, it seems Meghan remains un-knocked up, but she’s hoping to change that soon — and sources say she’s turned to her sister-in-law for advice.

“Meghan has been getting baby making tips from all her friends with kids, including Duchess Kate,” one insider tells Hollywood Life.

“Kate told her to drink more tea. That was her big piece of advice. She’s embraced all the British traditions and has started drinking tea at tea time.”

Well, if that isn’t the most British reproductive advice in history!

Of course, Kate said to drink effing tea!

Meghan, being a grown-ass woman, probably came to her sister-in-law asking advice and expected Kate to suggest a position or something.

Instead, she gets told to bust out her doilies and get sippin’.

“I say, the Queen Mum used to maintain that a spot of Earl Grey will fill your belly with the very pastiest of heirs,” Kate probably said, clutching her pearls at this American’s effrontery. 

The crazy part is, it seems Meg is actually listening to Kate’s advice:

“She’s not really sure if it will make any difference in helping her get pregnant, which she’s very graciously following Kate’s advice,” says the source.

We hope she at least put an American spin on the situation and started guzzling 99 cent cans of Arizona.

Fortunately, Kate’s not the only one offering Meghan conception tips.

It seems the Duchess of Sussex has also been in touch with her friends back on this side of the pond, who have been a bit more helpful in their advice.

“Her friends in Toronto are more holistic minded, so they’ve offered tips like practicing more yin style yoga and doing a nightly meditation,” says the insider.

“Meghan’s not obsessing about getting pregnant, but she’s very open to everyone’s ideas. She’s a naturally curious person, so she loves learning what worked for her friends when it comes to their fertility.”

That’s good, because so far her friends are offering lame-ass advice that has nothing to do with putting the old peener in the va-jay-jay.

We kid, of course. The Duke and Duchess probably don’t need much advice on that part of the process:

“Meghan and Harry are enjoying non-stop baby-making sex at all hours of the day,” says the insider.

“Meghan has an app on her phone that tracks of her fertility, so when she is most likely to conceive.

“That means in the mornings, afternoons and at night, they make time for love with a baby being the goal…and Harry is not complaining at all. There may not be a bun in her oven yet, but they are having fun trying.”

That sound you just heard was everyone in England over the age of 50 gasping in unison at such frank talk of a royal’s sex life.

Duggars Offer Back-to-School Advice (Despite the Fact They’ve Never Sent Their Kids to School)

The days are getting shorter, the never-used golf clubs and camping equipment are gathering dust, and the nagging sense that you’re wasting the best years of your life withering away under the harsh glare of fluorescent lights in a cubicle that seems to get smaller by the day is growing more profound.

This can only mean one thing — autumn is upon us.

All over the country, kids are back in the classroom, but for the Duggar family, there aren’t too many changes around the compound this time of year.

That’s because the Duggar kids are homeschooled.

Yes, not one of Jim Bob and Michelle’s 19 kids has ever set foot inside an actual classroom.

And yet, for some reason, the family still feels it’s their duty to offer back-to-school advice to their devoted fanbase.

“I know many moms and dads are in ‘back-to-school’ mode and have a thousand things to think about and many stressors in your life,” Michelle wrote on the Duggars official Facebook page this week.

“Recently, I was reading in God’s word,” Michelle continued.

“‘Be anxious for nothing.’ It was such a beautiful reminder that God has everything in control. He is working things out on our behalf. We have to place our trust in Him and He will direct our steps.”

Decent advice, but it’s easy for someone to tell you to just chill out when they’re not the ones who have to buy their kid a separate three-ring binder for every freakin’ class.

As In Touch Weekly points out, many commenters took issue with the Duggars’ advice for stressed-out parents.

“Oh, the overt irony of that post,” wrote one Facebook user.

Others echoed the sentiment, and it’s not hard to see why they’re so resentful of advice issued by someone who simply cannot relate to their plight.

Obviously, homeschooling 19 kids is no easy task — but the Duggars have had plenty of help.

If you’re a longtime fan of the family, you probably already know that the Duggars employ a buddy system, meaning that each child is assigned a younger sibling to look after — and educate.

Now that so many Duggars have left the nest, most of the tutoring duties fall not to Michelle, but to Jana.

Yes, with the help of her friend Laura DeMasie, Jana Duggar has been homeschooling her siblings for years.

Some have gone so far as to suggest that the reason Jana is still single is that she’s so busy with helping to raise her siblings that she’s had no time to find a partner.

We don’t know if that’s true, but we do know that Michelle is not the ideal person to be dispensing back-to-school advice.


Audrey Roloff Offers 3 Pieces of Advice for Working Moms

Audrey Roloff gets it, you guys.

Or you gals, to be more accurate.

She's a mother to a precious daughter named Ember and she also works: formerly as a cast member on Little People, Big World (until announcing her departure last month) and also as an author and an entrepreneur.

Roloff admits that she's learning as she goes, trying to find the proper balance between her professional life and her personal life.

But she's learned enough after about a year of parenthood to pass along some tips.

In an Instagram message Audrey posted in August of 2018, she passed along the following pieces of advice to "working moms" around the world..

1. Tip #1:

Up goes ember
Writes Audrey to open this lengthy caption, which she shared along a photo of herself and almost-one-year-old Ember: “GRACE. Give yourself loads of grace when you see all the things other mothers are doing that make me feel less-than.”

2. More on Grace:

One happy roloff
“I am constantly reminding myself that my standard for motherhood should be rooted in the Word of God NOT the world of Instagram,” concludes Amber on this topic.

3. But Hasn’t She Discussed Grace Before?

Pure joy
Yes, in February of 2018 Audrey wrote on Instagram: “”GRACE. If I had to sum up what motherhood has taught me into one word, it would be grace.

4. What Did She Mean at the Time?

A perfect setting
You tell us, Auds! “I can be pretty hard on myself, and motherhood is teaching me to give myself grace in the moments when I feel unequipped, ill prepared, or like I don’t measure up. On the days when I discover I haven’t been doing something that everyone else seems to be doing, grace. When my ideals don’t fit to reality, grace. When I’m overwhelmed by all the conflicting research on all the hot button issues, grace. When I start to compare myself to the other mama warriors out there, grace. When I get criticized and accused, grace.”

5. A Final Word on Grace

Also from this February 2018 post: “When I realize I’m not the kind, patient, and loving wife intend to be, grace. When I get down on myself for working too much or not enough, grace. When I haven’t checked anything off my to-do list, grace. When I’ve worn the same outfit 7 days in a row, grace… I am choosing to release my harsh and sometimes worldly standards and learning to embrace His grace in my weakness. His power is perfected in my weakness.”

6. Okay, Got It. On to Tip #2!

“Never stop showing gratitude to your spouse for all the things they do to help out,” Duggar tells the tabloid. “It doesn’t matter how big or small.

The Counting On star explains that it’s important to remember at all times, explaining “If your spouse volunteered to change nastiest, stinky diaper or you saw them jump up quickly to clean up a spill, make it a habit to express gratefulness and say, ‘Thank you for doing that.'”
