Meghan Markle has hinted at plans to start a family.

The former 'Suits' actress and Prince Harry - who are due to wed on May 19 - have been touring the campus of the Northern Ireland's next-generation science park, where they were greeted by a husband-and-wife team who are responsible for the innovative baby products, and Meghan apparently let slip her parenting ambitions during their meeting.

The 36-year-old star was viewing the products from Shnuggle when she was overheard saying: ''I'm sure at some point we'll need the whole thing.''

Sinead Murphy, who founded the company with her husband, subsequently revealed that Prince Harry was particularly interested in some of the baby products.

She told People: ''They seemed very engaged with the products. Harry was particularly interested in the bath. I wonder if he has witnessed bath time with his nephew or niece.''

Prince Harry previously admitted he would love to start a family with Meghan.

But he also insisted they were not in a rush to have children.

Speaking after the couple announced their engagement, Prince Harry shared: ''I think you know one step at a time, and hopefully we'll start a family in the near future.''

The Prince also said that his late mother, Princess Diana, would have loved Meghan, and that they would have become ''best friends''.

He explained: ''I think she would be over the moon, jumping up and down, you know so excited for me, but then, as I said, would have probably been best friends - best friends with Meghan.

''So no it's ... you know it is days like ... days like today when, when I really miss having her around and miss being able to share the happy news.''
