Palace sources exclusively told RadarOnline.com about Markle's invasive and humiliating exams and the harvesting of her eggs — intended to guarantee the 37-year-old would bear children — before she was allowed to tie the knot!
"Meghan was disgusted when she was asked to undergo a fertility test," a source revealed.
"But she was so intent on joining the royal family she submitted to it. It's ironic. For years Meghan has positioned herself as someone who campaigns for women's rights," continued the source.
"This test flew in the face of all her beliefs about women being independent and strong."
But while the source said the former Suits actress "was sickened it was suggested she should have her eggs frozen," she still relented in the end to having the procedure done.
"Now the clock is ticking for her and Harry to conceive," the source added.
But ever since Markle passed her royal fertility test, she is apparently facing another order from the queen: produce at least three children!
"Before they got married, Meghan told Harry she only wanted two kids, after William and Kate were criticized by environmental campaigners for bringing a third child into an overpopulated world," the source said.
"But Meghan knew there would be pressure from senior royals to 'match' William and Kate's number of children, and it looks as if she's going to have to backtrack on her plan for a smaller family."
