Is Markle’s Africa tour wardrobe a clue?

Some royal watchers who are paying attention to the small details of Prince Harry and Markle’s royal tour of Africa spotted the duchess recycling a number of her outfits.

While that in itself doesn’t necessarily scream pregnancy, her choice to wear the same blue dress she wore when she was pregnant during her royal tour in Australia last year has some fans wondering if it’s a sign.

Some of her other fashion choices during the tour also have fans wondering if she’s sporting a baby bump. That includes the styling of her black-and-white print maxi wrap dress, which could conceal a bump, as well as recycling the olive and brown striped dress worn during the Australia visit.

Markle also paired a shapeless top with jeans during the tour, leading many royal watchers to believe that she’s opting for more loose-fitting clothing because she’s expecting.

South Africa • After months of planning, Their Royal Highnesses, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex arrived in South Africa today for their official Royal Tour of Southern Africa – focusing on community, grassroots leadership, women’s and girls’ rights, mental health, HIV/AIDS and the environment. Their first stop was to the incredible Justice Desk Project which works to make women and children safer in Nyanga. It’s an issue of vital importance in South Africa and across the globe, their Royal Highnesses wanted to learn first-hand about the issues people face and the work being done on the ground. One of the workshops Their Royal Highnesses saw was the Mbokodo project which provides self-defense classes and female empowerment workshops to young girls who are overcoming major traumas. This project's powerful motto is "wathint' abafazi wathint' imbokodo" which means "you strike a woman; you strike a rock" • “And just on one personal note, may I just say that while I am here with my husband as a member of The Royal Family, I want you to know that for me I am here with you as a mother, as a wife, as a woman, as a woman of colour and as your sister.” – The Duchess of Sussex • @TheJusticeDesk Project is supported by the @Queens_Commonwealth_Trust and works with community leaders in Nyanga, with the firm belief that if you can change the mindset of a community, you can change the mindset of a country. #SussexRoyalTour #RoyalVisitSouthAfrica • Photo ©️PA images / SussexRoyal – video SussexRoyal

Does Markle’s body language reveal she’s pregnant?

Fashion choices aside, there’s also the matter of Markle’s body language during the tour of Africa. Body language expert Judi James told Express that there may be some clues in Markle and Prince Harry’s affection for one another, as she revealed: “Meghan’s touch and affection rituals with Harry seem to have increased rather than diminished now they are technically out of the honeymoon phase, while he appears even more openly besotted.”

She added: “Her glances at her husband suggest approval and open admiration for the man he appears to have become. The couple ‘stroke’ one another verbally as well as non-verbally in public too, with each pouring praise on the other’s parenting skills.”

James shared how “there are also some rituals and gestures that could easily prompt rumors that baby number two is on the way, especially as Meghan’s first pregnancy was announced on their last tour. It would be easy to imagine that the couple would be keen to have their second baby quite quickly, thanks to Meghan’s age and the fact that both she and Harry appear almost champing at the bit to get on with their global campaigns as an A-list power couple.”

She points out that some of the body language might instead be indicative of Markle being a mom, noting: “Archie is still very small and a reading of a couple of the non-verbal cues could suggest that either Meghan is pregnant again or that she is just still acting like a very new mum.”

This includes the way that Markle is “often seen with her hands either covering, touching or loosely clasped in front of her belly,” with James sharing, “She carried papers to cover her bump during her arrival on their last tour and her speech notes are being held in a very similar position.”

The belly-covering could just be a holdover from her pregnancy, James shares, noting, “But this kind of belly-covering can also be common with new mothers, especially mums like Meghan who developed a habit of bump-cradling throughout her first pregnancy.”
