Meghan Markle Pregnant with Baby No 2? The Clue That Has Eagle-Eyed Fans Convinced She Is Pregnant Again
Meghan Markle might be expecting her second child. The Duchess of Sussex is currently touring South Africa with her husband, Prince Harry, and their 5-month-old son, Archie, yet royal watchers believe the former actress might be pregnant with baby number two. Will the Sussexes make a big baby announcement before they return home?
Fans are convinced Markle is pregnant
The pregnancy speculation heated up when Markle stepped out in a blue dress in South Africa. The dress is the same outfit Markle wore when she was carrying Archie, and fans believe the Duchess was dropping a subtle hint about a new pregnancy.
“I think Meghan Markle is already pregnant again. Okay… stand down,” one fan wrote on social media, while another added, “I’m gonna call it now… Meghan Markle is pregnant again and due around May next year again.”
Other fans pointed out that Markle wore the same blue dress during the couple’s royal tour last year. As royal watchers will recall, Markle and Harry announced their first pregnancy during the tour.
There is no telling if Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will announce a second pregnancy soon, but wearing an old outfit is not unusual for members of the royal family.
In fact, Markle has recycled items in her wardrobe on several occasions. The former actress is particularly fond of re-wearing shoes and stepping out with old handbags – and she is hardly the first royal to do it.
Kate Middleton has also gained a reputation for reusing old outfits. The Duchess of Cambridge has even been known to rock the same dress years later.
With that in mind, it is possible that Markle simply likes the blue dress and was not trying to make a statement. Either way, we should know more when the couple’s 10-day tour is over.
What are the odds that Meghan Markle is expecting?
With the pregnancy speculation making the rounds, betting agencies in the U.K. have increased the odds that Markle will issue a baby announcement before the year is out.
According to Express, bookmakers have set the odds at 8/11 that Markle will announce her second pregnancy within the next few months.
Fueling the odds, royal experts claim that Harry and Markle want to give Archie at least one sibling. With the pair getting up in age, experts believe they will expand their small family sooner rather than later.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry also reportedly love being parents and want a large family. Exactly how many children they plan on having remains unclear, but it definitely sounds like they are not stopping at one.
“They absolutely want siblings for Archie, so possibly we will have a pregnancy announcement for Meghan and Harry sometime next year,” royal expert Katie Nicholl shared.
Markle and Harry are currently at the beginning leg of their South Africa tour. The pair will be visiting several countries in the region, and the trip marks their first as a family of three.
They have not said anything about the pregnancy rumors and likely will not until they make an official announcement.
Is Kate Middleton also getting ready for a pregnancy announcement?
Meghan Markle, of course, is not the only royal facing pregnancy rumors. Middleton has also been hit with pregnancy talk in recent months.
Fans believe Middleton is showing signs of pregnancy, including the way she has been styling her hair. During her previous pregnancies, Middleton switched up her hairstyles prior to making the big announcement.
When the Duchess of Cambridge dropped off Princess Charlotte for her first day of school, fans were quick to notice that she had died her hair. This sparked intense speculation that Middleton is getting ready to release some baby news, though nothing has come of it yet.
Kate Middleton, who gave birth to her third child, Prince Louis, last spring, has not commented on the pregnancy rumors. That said, she and Prince William have been open about having more children, so it would not be that shocking if they made an announcement soon.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry introduced Archie Harrison to Archbishop Desmond Tutu on day three of their South African tour much to the delight of royal watchers everywhere.
