Meghan Markle's outfit at Princess Eugenie's wedding sparks pregnancy rumors
The Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle's half buttoned coat sparks off a series of pregnancy rumors and speculation
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry attended Princess Eugenie's wedding to Jack Brooksbank on Friday, and the Duchess of Sussex's choice of outfit has sparked pregnancy rumors. Many viewers speculated that Meghan could very well be expecting her first child with Prince Harry.
Meghan arrived at the St. George's Chapel in Windsor with Prince Harry, entered the wedding venue through a side entrance in order to avoid the paparazzi. Meghan looked absolutely stunning in a navy blue Givenchy dress, but she sported a long blue coat for the occasion and kept it buttoned up to the top.
However, the coat was unbuttoned around her stomach which made it gape open and made her look slightly larger around the middle which is what probably sparked the pregnancy rumors.
As reported by New Idea, Australian fashion expert Donny Galella shared that Meghan's choice of outfit is a sign that she could be with child.
"Meghan is adding more fuel to baby rumors. That big coat could be hiding something? But she does look chic," he shared.
Fans and followers of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle also started speculating that she may be pregnant and took to social media to discuss it. "Something about Meghan's outfit choice makes me think she's pregnant and hiding a baby bump. It's so conservative," one fan wrote.
Another fan added, "I have a feeling that Meghan is pregnant...she’s glowing and her face looks fuller to me... can’t wait for them to announce it".
Some fans suggested that since she did not remove her coat inside the chapel, she could very well be expecting but it is known that royals very rarely remove their coats while they are at official engagements. Given that Meghan did not look pregnant in her most recent royal engagements proves that these are nothing but rumors and speculation.
One fan argued that Meghan, who was seen a few days before, showed no signs of being pregnant. They shared a picture of her wearing a fitted teal skirt and said, "This was a few days ago. If Meghan is pregnant, she doesn't have to hide it yet. What if she just wanted for Eugenie to have all the attention today?"
Another reason that it is unlikely that Meghan is pregnant is due to the fact that both the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be ready to kick off their tour to visit Commonwealth countries. On the trip, they will also be visiting places such as Fiji and Tonga which poses a risk of the Zika virus which can be spread via mosquitoes. It is very harmful more pregnant women and the disease can cause birth defects. The government has advised pregnant women to postpone unnecessary travel until the end of their pregnancy.
