Meghan Markle first gave away she was pregnant at Princess Eugenie’s wedding, revealed a royal expert. Emily Nash revealed the Duchess “reinforced everyone’s suspicions” by leaving her Givenchy coat unbuttoned. HELLO!’s Royal Editor told Sunday Night: “I think when the Duchess of Sussex came to Princess Eugenie’s wedding, that reinforced everyone’s suspicions. Because she was wearing this beautiful Givenchy coat but she had left it unbuttoned.
“You kind of think to yourself no detail goes amiss with a piece of couture like this, why has she not done her coat up?”
Referring to the news breaking of Meghan’s pregnancy during her Australia tour with Prince Harry, Ms Nash added: “Harry and Meghan landed in Sydney and Meghan was carrying some paperwork across her front which most people found slightly unusual.
“It looked like she was just being very business like.
“But then obviously a few hours later we discovered actually that she was pregnant.”
Meghan and Prince Harry have settled into Frogmore Cottage ahead of the royal baby’s birth.
The Duchess of Sussex is due to give birth in April or early May.
But royal fans may not find out any details about the birth of the royal baby for a while, as Kensington Palace also announced this week the royal couple will be keeping the birth plans private.
A statement from the palace said: “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are very grateful for the goodwill they have received from people throughout the United Kingdom and around the world as they prepare to welcome their baby.
“Their Royal Highnesses have taken a personal decision to keep the plans around the arrival of their baby private.
“The Duke and Duchess look forward to sharing the exciting news with everyone once they have had an opportunity to celebrate privately as a new family.”
The Duchess’ mother Doria Ragland is due to fly from LA to the UK this month ahead of the birth of her first grandchild.
Bookies Ladbrokes has some royal fans convinced the baby will come into the world this weekend.
The firm has dropped odds to 3/1 that the Duchess will give birth at some point between Friday and Monday, over Easter.
Jessica Bridge, a spokesperson for the company, said: “Royal fans would love a double celebration over the Easter weekend with Her Majesty’s birthday on Sunday, and potentially Baby Sussex arriving as well.
“Punters are still convinced the Duke and Duchess will be welcoming a little girl into the world.”
If the baby is born on Sunday, the child would share their birthday with the Queen, who is turning 93-years-old.
